What Was the Least Stolen Car in 2013?

Unlike the Honda Accord which gets jacked all the time.

Having your car stolen totally sucks. There’s no need to further explain why. So when you’re out car shopping, you’ll obviously want something that has plenty of anti-theft technologies. And which car, according to a new study, was the least stolen last year? That would be the Tesla Model S. The numbers show that the Model S has a theft rating of just 0.15 per 1,000 units produced. To compare, the across-the-board average is 3.51 cars stolen per 1,000 produced. Now, the question is why haven't thieves targeted the Model S?

The likely reasons are that the car’s advanced security systems simply make it hard to steal and thieves haven’t figured out ways around them (yet). What’s more is that the Model S comes with a 3G chip, making it easy to track and shut down remotely. The other least likely stolen cars, with a claim frequency of 0.4 per 1,000 produced are as follows: the Dodge Journey, Volkswagen Tiguan, Audi A4, Acura RDX, Toyota Matrix, Lexus HS 250h, Honda CR-V, and the Hyundai Tucson. The most stolen car remains the Honda Accord.
