Most factory car alarm systems are all bark and no bite. The blaring siren that goes off whenever a leaf falls on your windshield or your neighbor plays music too loud might scare off a novice joyrider, but it won’t do a whole lot in the way of car theft prevention. Fortunately, there are plenty of aftermarket car alarm systems available that can upgrade the security of your vehicle and offer you peace of mind without waking up the neighborhood.
