Etchguard Auto Theft Protection Coverage

Vehicle Theft

Your vehicle is a significant financial investment. So, keeping it secure should be a priority. But, when more than 700,000 vehicles are stolen annually, how can you keep your vehicle safe?

Drivers Should Know

  • A vehicle is stolen every 44 seconds
  • 45% of stolen vehicles are never recovered
  • The total value of vehicles stolen annually is more than $4.1 billion

Deter Auto Theft with Etchguard®

PermaPlate Etchguard deters auto theft, assists in auto theft recovery and identification, and provides financial relief to the owner if the vehicle is stolen and not recovered.

Etchguard works by making your vehicle identifiable by permanently engraving a traceable security code onto several components of the vehicle. The security code makes it nearly impossible for thieves to profit from the sale of the stolen vehicle or parts. A thief sees the traceable etching and moves on. As a result, etching is recommended by law enforcement and insurance agencies to prevent auto theft.


  • Proven theft deterrent
  • Assists in recovery
  • Up to $5,000 in Limited Warranty Benefits if Etchguard fails to prevent theft and aid in recovery
  • Transferable coverage upon resale
