Q60 stolen in front of house

I only had a few months remaining on my lease of my silver 3.0 Q and it was stolen right in front of my house in the wee hours of the morning yesterday. I caught part of it on camera...still can't figure out the exact method they used but I'm sure it was transponder related or something.

The car was reversed into the driveway when I last parked it last night. It looks like 2 vandals somehow rolled it forward in neutral (?) without opening the driver side door. Then they opened the passenger side door, popped open the hood, started up the car, both went back into the car from the passenger side, and it was gone. Took them roughly 2 minutes from the time they first opened the passenger door till my car was driven off. Not sure how long it took them to do the neutral thing because my camera wasn't pointed on that side of the driveway.

Didn't realize my car was gone till I woke up 5 hours later to go to work. I might post the vid later, still getting all my affairs in order. I'm sure the car is already chopped up by now. That was the first & last Nissan/Infiniti I'll ever own, that's for sure.

The site I used to post it really quick only allows 60 second chunks. The total recording is two and a half minutes.

First 60 seconds
Next 60 seconds
Remainder

Also found this post about how Q50s are the top 3rd most stolen new car. So it's probably not a surprise the Q60 can be just as easily boosted.

If you still own a Q, you might want to consider planting a gps bug inside yours or something. If there are any new developments that come up I'll follow up here, otherwise, nice knowing ya'll

Anyone know of an easy to pull fuse that would disable starting the car?

That sucks! Sorry that happened. Sad that people can't work for what they want in life instead of taking from those that do.

Sorry to hear that. But, why blame the manufacture. Most brands use the same ignition security architecture. Thieves appetite resolves around available numbers and ease of flipping the parts. Get another
