Top 10 Most Stolen Cars

September 19, 2013

It's every car owners nightmare -- you go outside to find your car is not where you left it. At first you think maybe it's one row over in the parking lot, but soon you come to realize it's not you -- your car has been stolen.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau recently published its latest "Hot Wheels" report, detailing the top 10 vehicles that thieves love to get their grubby paws on. At the top of the list is the Honda Accord, which had a total of 58,596 thefts in 2012. That is followed closely by the Honda Civic, with 47,037 thefts last year.

Below is a look at the top 10 cars with the highest theft rates last year.

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.
