If you have a new car with all the latest high-tech innovations then you have less to fear about car theft!
No promises, of course. But after seeing the Top 10 list of most-stolen vehicles filled with sedans and American pickups it seems the thieves are giving up their computer-hacking days and going after the older cars with no chance of computer chips to track them down.
And that’s … a pretty smart move.
Although the thieves are stealing older versions of the newer cars, that doesn’t mean they don’t get caught because of the newer tech. It is now more common than ever for people to track down their stolen cars because they left their iPhone in their car and it has a “Find my Phone” app.
Although that can work as a freak-accident safety for your car — would you really want to take that risk??
The top 5 most-stolen vehicles are:
5. 2000 Dodge Caravan
4. 1991 Toyota Camry
3. 2006 Ford F-150
2. 1998 Honda Civic
And, drum roll, please! The top stolen vehicle is the…
1. The 1994 Honda Accord!!
If you have any of those cars, either cross your fingers it doesn’t get stolen, or get yourself an alarm system. Preferably one of the Viper systems, just to be on the safe side.
