The RAVELCO anti-theft device available in Baja California!
On September 25, 2001 in Mexico City, the anti-theft device RAVELCO was tested by CESVI. CESVI is owned by the seven leading insurance companies based in Mexico.
In the test, professional car thieves participated, and it consisted of trying to bridge a Nissan Sentra (the most stolen vehicle in Mexico City at that time) that was equipped with a RAVELCO. CESVI said it would approve the RAVELCO if it passed the test of eight minutes. No anti-theft or alarm device takes more than 3 minutes to bypass or avoid it. After cutting cables and trying for 35 minutes the professionals finally gave up. The next day, they towed the car to a local Nissan dealer to get it fixed. The same Nissan dealer called us to our offices in Houston to know how to rewire it and it could work. Needless to say, the RAVELCO was approved.
RAVELCO is the only anti-theft device recognized in Mexico that generates a discount on its insurance. With more than 10 million people in Mexico City and nearly 200 vehicles stolen per day, people at CESVI know that it does and does not work when car theft is about. No alarm, location system or any other anti-theft device is approved in Mexico.
