The Most and Least Stolen Cars Around the Block

When you go car shopping, you should be sure that you consider which cars are stolen the most and which cars are stolen the least.  You do not want to walk out to pick up your car and find that someone has taken your car without your permission. Surprisingly, a car is stolen every 43 seconds. There are about 60 million vehicles driving on United States roads but there were 740,000 vehicles stolen last year alone.

Last year the top three most stolen vehicles were…

  • 1994 Honda Accord
  • 1995 Honda Civic
  • 1991 Toyota Camry

It is suspected that the reason that the most stolen cars seem to be older cars is because the newer cars have advanced security and anti-theft technology. The Honda’s have strong resale value and Honda uses the greatest number of common parts among its vehicles, making the parts from the Accord easy to peddle.

The most common 2011 model-year vehicles were…

  • 2011 Toyota Camry
  • 2011 Mercedes-Benz C300
  • 2011 Ford F-350
  • 2011 Honda Civic
  • 2011 Toyota Corolla
