Let’s have a peek at the list of 10 most stolen vehicles in America.
Recently, the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) has released the annual Hot Wheels report of the 10 most stolen vehicles in the United States. Based on data collected from the National Crime Information Center, the report reveals that the 1997 Honda Accord is the most stolen model in the country.

Discussing the reasons, the Honda Accord is known as one of the best-selling cars of all time. This model climbed to the top of the charts in 1989 and never really fell; thus, it is its popularity that makes the Accord a target of car thieves. Another reason is that older cars, in general, are easier to steal than modern ones.

Although car thefts have significantly fallen since 1992, car owners still need to pay close attention to your beloved by locking it up tight. “Anti-theft systems in newer model cars and trucks are excellent, but they don’t work if you don’t use them. Far too many thefts occur because the vehicle is left unlocked and the key or fob is inside," explained Joe Wehrle, NICB CEO.
