For what it's worth, the last one was done at a Clifford authorised dealer at their centre. These issues didn't crop up straight away, they were after a few years of use, which would suggest a failure as part of the alarm itself. If it was installation related you'd expect problems soon after installation.
I bought it on the strength of the reviews in the car magazines (like most people), but of course none of these tests are long term - they only take into account features, etc. I even forgave the first one, thinking it was a botched install and got the second one done by the best Clifford experts in the country. This too let me down eventually. The car was old at this stage so I got a mechanic to bypass it and left it as it was.
Think long and hard about what you get. For me, it managed to turn what should have been an ultra-reliable car into an unpredictable and unreliable annoyance. I might as well have been driving a Mazda.
Of the straw poll that I've done of people who got Cliffords and like them, the vast majority only had them in the car a year or two. I think it was around 4 years old when mine gave trouble.
