HSV DataDot DNA Platinum
Each new HSV vehicle is fitted with the DataDot DNA Platinum Theft Deterrent System (TDS) which provides our owners with the peace of mind that their prized possession has an even higher level of protection. In the unlikely event of theft, HSV Owners will enjoy the additional benefit of the DataDot TDS Warranty.
The DataDot DNA Platinum TDS includes thousands of DataDots, marked with each vehicle’s unique Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and sprayed in covert locations on the body and key component parts of the car. With VIN information managed by Government road and traffic authorities, the DataDots are a permanent fixture throughout the vehicle providing irrefutable proof of ownership.
The DataDot DNA Platinum TDS works because professional thieves are generally interested in the profitability of stripping stolen vehicles for spare parts and scrap metal, or changing the identity of the vehicle for ‘re-birthing’. Where simple investigation can provide reliable identification of ownership, the vehicle is of little value on the illegal market. Location of DataDots on stolen vehicle parts has contributed to the successful prosecution of criminals. Therefore the DataDot DNA Platinum TDS is the ultimate deterrent to professional thieves.
