What do I do if my vehicle is stolen?
If your vehicle has been stolen, please follow the steps below to initiate Stolen Vehicle Tracking (SVT):

  1. You will need to file a stolen vehicle report with the police, who will provide you with a police report number.
  2. With your police report number and vehicle VIN ready, call Lexus Stolen Vehicle Assistance on 1300 216 737 and advise the agent your vehicle has been stolen and you would like to initiate tracking.
  3. The agent will validate that you have a subscription to SVT, and request the police report number & VIN from you in order to initiate tracking.

Once tracking is initiated, Lexus Stolen Vehicle Assistance will provide updates to the police to assist with the potential recovery of your vehicle.

Can I get updates on the location of my stolen vehicle as well?
Our Lexus Stolen Vehicle Assistance agent can only advise if the tracking is still active, or if deactivation has been requested by the police or the individual who initiated the tracking.

To receive updates on the recovery of your vehicle you should contact the police directly, not the Stolen Vehicle Assistance Centre.

Once activated, how long will the Stolen Vehicle Tracking (SVT) system attempt to track my vehicle?
Once tracking is initiated, Stolen Vehicle Tracking (SVT) will continue to track the vehicle as long as there is mobile coverage, sufficient main vehicle battery power, and until a request to terminate the tracking has been made.

Who contacts me if my stolen vehicle is recovered?
Should your vehicle be recovered, police will contact you directly.

If my vehicle is stolen and the battery runs down or is disconnected, how long will the Stolen Vehicle Tracking (SVT) system remain active?
Stolen Vehicle Tracking (SVT) ceases operating when the main vehicle battery becomes flat or inoperative. SVT will resume when the battery power becomes available, as long as the tracking request is still active.
