1997 Honda Accord, 2016 Toyota Camry were most stolen cars last year
The 1997 Honda Accord was the most stolen vehicle last year, and the Toyota Camry was the most stolen new (MY 2016) vehicle, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau.
Honda Accords and Civics dominate this yearês list, but they are older, pre-smart key models. Since the introduction of smart keys and other anti-theft technology, Honda thefts have fallen dramatically. But though thefts are down dramatically since their all-time high in 1992, thousands of vehicles continue to be stolen each year because owners leave their keys or fobs in the vehicles.
The rest of the top five vehicles stolen overall are the Civic, full-size Ford pickup, full-size Chevrolet pickup and Toyota Camry. The rest of the top five MY 2016 vehicles stolen are the Nissan Altima, Toyota Corolla, Dodge Charger and Ford Fusion.Download Bulletin PDF
