The Most Stolen Cars

 

 

The National Insurance Crime Bureau just released its report on the most stolen cars of 2013...and as usual, your fleet of Ferraris and Aston Martins was safe.  But your Honda Accord was as good as dead.

There were 53,995 Honda Accords stolen in the U.S. last year, the most of any model by a MASSIVE margin.  And usually they're Honda Accords from the '90s...those are easier to get into and get away with than modern versions.

Here's the top 5:

 

1. Honda Accord

2. Honda Civic

3. Chevy Pickups

4. Ford Pickups

5. Toyota Camry

 

Of cars that were actually made in 2013, Nissan Altimas were the most stolen... there were 810 2013 Altimas stolen.  The Ford Fusion was second.

But overall, there were fewer than 700,000 car thefts last year...that's the lowest number since 1967, and down 50% from 1991.
