These Are the 10 Most Stolen Cars in the U.S.


Bad news for owners of a 1990s Honda Civic or Accord: Your car is one of the most heavily stolen models of all time, and last year was no exception. This week, the National Insurance Crime Bureau released their annual “Hot Wheels” list, which notes the 10 most stolen vehicles of the year (the number of thefts in 2015 is in parentheses):

1. Honda Accord (52,244)
-2. Honda Civic (49,430)
-3. Ford Pickup, full-size (29,396)
-4. Chevrolet Pickup, full-size (27,771)
-5. Toyota Camry (15,466)
-6. Dodge Pickup, full-size (11,212)
-7. Toyota Corolla (10,547)
-8. Nissan Altima (10,374)
-9. Dodge Caravan (9,798)
-10. Chevrolet Impala (9,225)

The NICB has also released an interactive map that shows the top 10 stolen cars by state. Go and check if your car is one of them. Of course just because these cars are the most frequently stolen doesn’t mean that criminals go out of their way to nab them specifically; there are just a lot of them out there. Your Honda Accord is probably not the ideal steal if it’s parked in a lot full of McLarens. Still, don’t forget to lock your doors.
