On February 1, 2013, the owner of a Honda CEX contacted the San Diego Police Department to report that his vehicle was stolen from his residence in the city of San Diego.

San Diego Police Department 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 CEX.

Within thirty minutes, officers from San Diego Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Honda, CEX on the Police Tracking Computers installed in their patrol vehicles.  Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computers, the officers tracked and found the vehicle at the 500 block of 63rd Street in San Diego. The Honda CEX had been stolen three times before – and each time, it was tracked and recovered with the help of the LoJack system.

The owner was very happy when San Diego Police contacted him to recover the vehicle, which was found abandoned and undamaged.  The vehicle was valued at approximately $3,450.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda CEX 17 years and 11 months prior, on March 14, 1995 at Herb Chambers Honda in Boston, Massachusetts.
