Having had a car stolen with OnStar, and noticing the theft 3 hours later, OnStar is not a good theft deterrent. It was no help.

From what I understand LoJack is only marginally better.

Did anyone run a no-AC car? Did it have the same temp issues? The engineers didn't want AC on the car.

Yes there is. But it won't defeat a tow truck, just a foot thief.
