I looked it up and it is supposed to be a permanent traceable ID Code etched in each major window of the vehicle, which would be my newly purchased 2012 Chevrolet Malibu which they charged me $299 for the Vehicle Sentry Protection. I looked on the windows and could not see any etchings, the vehicle was inside my garage but I would have thought there was enough light that they would be visible which I may be wrong. The Vehicle Sentry Protection Registration Form says it may be cancelled within 30 days if I notify Vehicle Sentry Protection but apparently they refund the money to the dealer and the dealer refunds the money to me which would probably take forever.
Is this just another dealer scheme to make more profit or does it really deter theft? I would have thought they would have provided a highly visible sticker to place in the window to deter thieves but none was provided.
