It used to be the flashy, new rides that were most likely to be stolen.  Not anymore.

Newer model cars come with cool anti – theft stuff like special key codes, satellite tracking systems and other gadgets.  It’s the older models … pre – 2000 … that are most in jeopardy these days!

An article at msn.com lists the top 10 most stolen late 90′s vehicles as:

  • 1. Honda Accord
  • 2. Honda Civic
  •  3. Chevrolet Silverado, C/K Series
  •  4. Ford F-Series
  •  5. Toyota Camry
  •  6. Dodge Ram
  • 7. Dodge Caravan (Seriously?)
  •  8. Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee
  •  9. Toyota Corolla
  •  10. Nissan Altima

Don’t feel 100% safe with a newer model though.  Car thieves are far less likely to take those, but that doesn’t mean they won’t!  A National Insurance Crime Bureau study lists the 10 most stolen 2013 models as:

  • 1. Honda Accord
  • 2. Honda Civic
  • 3. Chevrolet Pickup (Full Size)
  • 4. Ford Pickup (Full Size)
  • 5. Toyota Camry
  • 6. Dodge Pickup (Full Size)
  • 7. Dodge Caravan (Again? WTF?)
  • 8. Jeep Cherokee/Grand Cherokee
  • 9. Toyota Corolla
  • 10. Nissan Altima

According to the El Paso Times, the top 5 most stolen vehicles in El Paso in 2013 .. regardless of model year .. were:

  • Ford F-150
  • Chevrolet Silverado
  • GMC Sierra
  • Honda Civic
  • Dodge Ram 1500

HAA!  No mini vans on that one!

Our thieves aren’t nerds!

Rock With Dubba G!
