Top 10 Most and Least Stolen Cars for 2011

September 1, 2011

Bad news if you happen to like driving a Cadillac Escalade.

The luxury SUV again tops the list of the most stolen cars in the U.S. according to the Highway Loss Data Institute.

Apparently thieves can't get enough, as four versions of the Escalade top the HLDI list of 2008-10 vehicles with the most theft claims.

On average, pickup trucks, including the Escalade EXT, had higher dollar amounts of theft loss than SUVs or cars.

That's because fewer pickup trucks have ignition immobilizers, and property can be stolen easily from the pickup bed.

The Chrysler 300 tops the theft rates for passenger cars, while the Audi A6 had the fewest claims..

Owning a car with a high claims rate will affect your car insurance rates so it makes sense to pay attention to this list when shopping for a vehicle.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar and Edmunds 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.
