Subaru and Daihatsu to increase security

International Motors, the importer of Subaru and Daihatsu to the UK, has appointed Retainagroup to provide a new marking system to increase the security of its cars.

Starting this month, the Retainagroup system will be used to mark at least six windows on each vehicle with the brand logo, a unique code and the contact telephone number of its International Security Register (ISR).

In addition, a number of parts and components on both Subaru and Daihatsu vehicles will be security marked at International Motors’ import centre at Sheerness in Kent.

Dealers will be able to call the ISR to determine the rightful owner of the Subaru or Daihatsu when they buy or except cars for part exchange.

“Retainagroup marking and registration provides Subaru and Daihatsu owners with an extra, proven layer of security,” said International Motors’ spokesman, Arthur Fairley.

“Vehicle crime has changed in recent years with criminals obtaining keys in order to steal cars, and a surge in cloning. Retainagroup marking and ISR registration is a simple and effective measure that we can provide at no extra cost to owners,” he added.
