Some people out there will say not to bother with a non-rated Car Alarm but the way I see it having a non-rated Alarm has to be better than having no alarm at all! And just look at the features that the Uniden VS255XR has for the money you pay for it.

As a company we have been installing these alarms for over ten years and have found they are very reliable and are excellent as a deterrent if you are on a very tight budget.
