Your car is great, isn't it? It's like your home away from home.

You have your smartphone hooked up to GPS and apps like Waze, so you're confident you will get where you're going on time. Your favorite drink is in the cup holder.

You're listening to music, chatting with friends and lounging in comfy seats. But all that comfort is probably giving you a false sense of security.

Do you know that nearly three-quarters of a million cars are stolen in the U.S. each year? More frightening, many of those crimes happen while you're driving.

Carjackings happen in a split second. If you stop at a red light with the window down or the doors unlocked, a gunman or a mob of criminals can force you out of the car, possibly harming you and definitely taking one of your most costly possessions.
