Top 10 Cars That Get Stolen Every Year

April 21, 2011

Stolen CarA major cost that many car buyers overlook is car insurance.

Cars that get stolen often tend to have higher insurance rates so it makes sense to pay attention to this if your goal is to save money.

According to LoJack, the Honda Accord, Civic and Toyota Camry were the most stolen and recovered vehicles of 2010.

Older model years are popular targets for car thieves, though LoJack does see a growing segment of thieves targeting newer vehicles.

Popular newer vehicles include the 2007 Camry and Cadillac Escalade.

Southern California, Texas and Florida experience the most larceny.

Electronic vehicle tracking systems, such as LoJack and Onstar, can help improve recovery rates while car alarms and “kill switches” could help prevent theft, too.

Most Stolen and Recovered Vehicles by Make & Model:

1. Honda Accord
2. Honda Civic
3. Toyota Camry
4. Acura Integra
5. Cadillac Escalade
6. Toyota Corolla
7. Ram pickup
8. Nissan Altima
9. Nissan Maxima
10. Chevrolet Tahoe

It's always a good idea to get competitive insurance rates every 12 months. Many people find they can save a few hundred dollars simply by switching to a new provider. Use this pull-down menu to compare auto insurance rates in your state.

 


My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

New York Tri-State Residents - Important:

There is a new car leasing service called Carvoy, available to NY tri-state area residents, which I recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with car dealerships. Carvoy provides pre-negotiated lease deals, calculated with taxes and all fees incuded so you know exactly what it will cost. Here is my list of Best Carvoy deals, updated each month.
