I agree with Honda2014 above- if you have full coverage, maybe investigate lowering your comprehensive deductible. Lowering it is usually pretty cheap... at least in my neck of the woods. I lowered mine from $250 to $100 and I think it only added like $6 to my six month premium.Hello Everyone. I'm new to this group. I just purchased my first Honda Accord (2019) recently and unfortunately, my mitigation radar just got stolen this week. It was then that I found out these radars/sensors are pretty popular in the car theft world. I'd like to get it replaced, but I'm really afraid that it'd only get stolen again. Upon looking in the grill, it looks like it's very easy to steal this radar. Has anyone found a way to install this radar in a secure way that's better than how Honda did it? If I can find a way to put it in better, in a way that it can't be stolen, I'd like to try to get another one. Thank you
Quite a few people have added wire or plastic mesh to that area of the front bumper- not to deter people from stealing the radar sensor- but rather as a cheap way to prevent damage to some of the bits behind the bumper. People did this on the 9th Generation Accord too- as some of those bits can be damaged pretty easily if hit by stones or rocks that are kicked up by other cars. I haven't seen anyone talk about it recently with a 10th Generation Accord- but I remember when it first came out people were experimenting with different types of screens and mesh to protect the expensive components behind the lower grille- and someone found a material that worked without obscuring the radar sensor. Installing a screen of some sort might convince a thief to go after an easier target.
