Stolen Cars & Auto Insurance CA

Here are the top 10 most frequently stolen cars for the last few years. 

When you’re looking for a car, the last thing you’re probably thinking of is when it’s going to get stolen. Be sure to keep these cars in mind the next time you are searching for a new ride, though, so you can avoid theft!

2013: most stolen vehicles

  1. 1996 Honda Accord
  2. 1998 Honda Civic
  3. 1999 Chevrolet Pickup (full-size)
  4. 2006 Ford Pickup (full-size)
  5. 1991 Toyota Camry
  6. 2004 Dodge Pickup (full-size)
  7. 2000 Dodge Caravan
  8. 2000 Jeep Cherokee/Grand Cherokee
  9. 2004 Toyota Corolla
  10. 1997 Nissan Altima

90s cars are typically without anti-theft technology, which makes Hondas and Toyotas very popular targets for car thieves. However, a few more modern cars have ranked higher on the list for 2013.

2012: most stolen vehicles

  1. 1996 Honda Accord
  2. 1998 Honda Civic

Nearly every car on this list (with the exception of three) is nearly two decades old. Again, these cars are prime target for car thieves because of the lack of anti-theft technology.
