Hello all... my 1994 Honda Accord was stolen last night (I put out an APB and recount the episode here: http://www.fool.com/News/mft/2004/mft04101319.htm) In addition to being hopping mad and still pretty much in shock, I wanted to check in here for any valuable insights you folks can provide. My car was stolen in Takoma Park, MD (where, evidently, the Honda Accord is the #1 most stolen car). What are the chances that my car will turn up (typically in a stolen-car scenario)? How long should I wait? And if it was kids who took it for a joy ride, does the car usually end up at a chop shop or simply at the side of the road somewhere?Obviously, instead of having to buy a new car I hope to find my car in tip-top shape parked lovingly on some road traffiked frequently by the police. Ahem. Since that's probably not going to happen, it looks like I'll be dealing with some insurance issues. However, since I only have liability coverage with Geico and not comprehensive (yes, I know, 100 lashes to me), I won't get a dime for any damage if it is recovered. Is there anything I should be doing insurance-wise right now in this situation? After filing the report with the police I called Geico and reported the theft. Thanks much for any tidbits of advice you care to share.Best,DayanaPS: I imagine if I have to buy a new car that you'll be seeing lots more of me on this board. : )
