Factory Anti Theft System
Is the Factory Anti Theft System standard on all Malibu Models? I'm talking about the alarm system. I know that Pass Key is standard.
The reason I'm asking is I had problems getting this discount on my insurance. When they entered my Vehicle VIN, it didn't list the Anti-Theft system. So my agent asked for a copy of the Window Sticker. That didn't list it either. Now I know my car has the factory anti-theft system. The Security Light flashes after I hit the remote lock button twice. Also, I made the alarm go off just to test the system.
But my insurance company insisted that it wasn't listed anyplace. Finally, I had the dealer call the Insurance Company to confirm that my car had this feature. The insurance company finally relented and gave me the discount which came out to $55 per year.
I just don't understand why this is not listed in the Vehicle VIN or Window Sticker. My insurance company had a point. That's where the anti-theft system would show up, so I can understand why they gave me a hard time.
Is the Factory Anti-theft system (alarm) standard on the LS & LT1, or is it just standard on the LT2 & LTZ?
By the way, make sure your insurance company knows that the Malibu has the Onstar Stolen Vehicle Tracking system. You get the same discount on your theft insurance as Lo-Jack which in most cases is 25%. I provided the Onstar documentation to my insurance company and I got this discount.
