Top 10 Stolen Vehicles In America
How many times do you double-check to make sure your car doors are locked? For me, I click the lock button on the keypad on my key chain about five or six times. And, that little extra precaution to double-double-check your doors might not be a bad idea, especially if the vehicle you are driving has made it on the Hot Wheels report. The report is a list of the most stolen vehicles in the United States in 2010 compiled by the National Insurance Crime Bureau.
I found it surprising that on the list there are no recent model vehicles--the latest year is 2004. But, according to NICB that's because of all the theft prevention devices that are in vehicles now. "Of the nearly 52,000 Honda Accords stolen in 2010, over 44,000 were models made in the 1990s, compared with fewer than 5,700 that were produced since the year 2000," it stated in the press release.
So, what make, model and year topped the list? The number one position goes to the 1994 Honda Accord. Following up the 1994 model, is the 1995 Honda Civic in second place. Follow that up by the 1991 Toyota Camry and that makes the top three most stolen cars in America for 2010.
Here's a quick look of the Hot Wheels report by The National Insurance Crime Bureau:
- 1994 Honda Accord
- 1995 Honda Civic
- 1991 Toyota Camry
- 1999 Chevrolet Pickup (Full Size)
- 1997 Ford F150 Series/Pickup
- 2004 Dodge Ram
- 2000 Dodge Caravan
- 1994 Acura Integra
- 2002 Ford Explorer
- 1999 Ford Taurus
