Before you buy you've been warned.
Numbers don’t lie, and before you make your next car purchase, it’s important to know whether or not that particular make and model is a prime target for theft. Some cars are just better to steal than others. And once again, after the official statistics have come in across the US for vehicles equipped with the LoJack anti-theft system, the Honda Accord remains the number one most stolen car in the US. The information this time comes from automotive tracking-device manufacturer LoJack.
Believe it or not, this is the third year in a row in which the Accord came out at number one. And the second most common stolen car? The Honda Civic. Next up on the list was the Toyota Camry followed by the Acura Integra, Toyota Corolla, Chevy Silverado, Cadillac Escalade, Nissan Maxima, Nissan Altima, and Chevy Tahoe. Funnily enough, the Acura Integra hasn’t been on sale in the US since 1991. According to the most recent FBI numbers, a car is stolen in the US every 44 seconds. LoJack points out that cars equipped with its anti-theft device have a 94% recovery rate. But still, perhaps before you buy, check the latest car theft numbers. Could end up saving you a lot of headaches.
