Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/TheATeam'' episode "[[Recap/TheATeamS3E12HotStyles Hot Styles]]", the others somehow talked B.A. into letting Murdock drive his precious van while he's getting there and a RunningGag through the episode is the worry that something will happen to it. Strangely, except for a few moments early in the episode, Murdock takes this charge very seriously, worrying about odd sounds and keeping the heat on high to keep the carpet fluffy. Of course, all this is ruined when Murdock accidentally drives the van off a dock at the end of the episode.

* Mara Jade Skywalker is this way in ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'' with her ships. It is NOT a good idea to mess with them. And true to the trope, the Jade's Fire is sacrificed on the mission to Niruan and the Jade Sabre, Luke's wedding gift to her, has to be abandoned during a crisis situation. Luke did manage to hang onto the third one,the Jade Shadow, even after her demise though.

** ''SaintsRow'' has the Chop Shop diversion, which works very similarly. The instant you get into a wanted vehicle in ''SaintsRow2'' or approach the right island in ''SaintsRowTheThird'', you suddenly get a minimum police notoriety level, often three or even five stars. On top of that, the AI DrivesLikeCrazy at times. Good luck getting the vehicle to the chop shop in one piece, let alone getting any significant reward for it. The only good news is that there's no time limit, but given that the cops are actively hunting you down while you're taking it to the chop shop, it's in your best interest to get to the end ASAP.
