On September 06, 2012, the owner of a 2006 Honda Accord- ADX contacted the San Diego Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen from the street near his residence in San Diego.

San Diego Police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Honda.

A short while later, officers from the San Diego Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Honda Accord on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked the vehicle to a residential neighborhood in the 1400 block of Bautista Street in San Diego. The vehicle, valued at approximately $14,000, was recovered abandoned and undamaged, and returned to the very happy owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda Accord ADX on March 24, 2006 at Poway Honda in Poway.
