Lots of people don't and most don't have their cars vandalized. It's unfortunate what happened to that CTS-V. Unfortunately, it could have happened to a friend visiting the neighborhood, too. A garage doesn't protect a car after it leaves its protective sanctuary.

A garage is great for when the car is at home but when the car leaves its sanctuary then there is risk. Perhaps if you never stopped at a restaurant, shopping center or motel on an overnight road trip then you could claim that you are secure. Thieves will hit you anywhere at any time. I'm with Diber and Eric, invest in some good quality locks! But rule #1 is NEVER leave anything that you value visible inside the car.

Link to official MB Accessories web site where you can find the Wheel Locks for the 2014 CLA250. Cost $95 USD for set of 4 locks plus 1 key.

Wheel locks CLA-Class CLA250C Accessories from Mercedes-Benz

The $95 will be much cheaper than the time, expense, disappointment and frustration that the CTS owner will experience having to deal with the hassle of replacing all his wheels. Yes, I know insurance will pay most of the expense.

That CTS probably has more problems than missing wheels. It's sitting on its rotors and some kind of wood or something wedged under the rockers. I doubt it was put there gently.

And it destroyed all the joy and pride the owner was experiencing with their new car. Insurance won't pay for any of that. Buy the wheel locks people!

I agree that wheel locks is a must have item, but don't pay for it. ask your dealer for free. they will easily give it out to you

Wheels locks, especially mfr ones are easily defeated( YouTube it) they only stall the process, but the end result is the same.
