An astounding 700,000 cars were stolen in the U.S. last year.
While that’s actually a decrease of 3.3 percent, at the same time the number of newer vehicles being stolen (cars from ’09-’11) is increasing, at least according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau.
Intuitively you would think newer cars would be more difficult to jack, but apparently not! Which really should emphasize a car owner’s need for aftermarket security.
The top most-stolen new vehicles from the new survey were:
1) The 2009 Nissan Altima
2) The 2009 Honda Accord
3) The 2009 Honda Civic
4) The 2009 Dodge Charger, and
5) (Motorcycle alert!) the 2009 Yamaha YZF-R6
