The 10 Most Stolen Vehicles in the US

Page 1 of 11

Would you like to know which are the most stolen vehicles in the US? Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Porsche, BMW… surprisingly enough, you won’t find any of these luxury brands on our list, for the cars more frequently stolen in the United States are inexpensive and dated models. The reason behind this fact is really quite simple once you think about it: popular older cars are easily sold for their parts after a quick visit to the closest chop shop. Moreover, flashy sports cars and exclusive high-end vehicles often have the best and latest anti-theft technology, which makes it an extremely hard and time-consuming task for thieves.

If you are disappointed to find out that our countdown doesn’t feature any deluxe vintage vehicles, you should check out Jerry Seinfield’s web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. In this show you’ll be able to enjoy the legendary comedian interviewing his most renowned and funniest colleagues after he picks them up in beautiful and luxurious vintage cars. The car models, as well as the comedians interviewed, change with every episode; you’ll be able to appreciate a parade of exquisite vehicles and the most hilarious people in the comedy business.

Now, coming back to the most stolen vehicles in the US, we should point out that the data we used to compile our countdown is published yearly by the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). Every year, they rank the rides that are robbed the most in their “Hot Wheels” list, according to the number of units that were taken. As we’ve already stated, the vehicles that get stolen with the most frequency are past models that can be easily disassembled and sold as parts. So, the NICB also ranks the top ten new vehicles that thieves choose the most. The latest countdown for the most stolen brand new rides (2013 models) includes: Nissan Altima, Ford Fusion, Ford-F 150, Toyota Corolla, Chevrolet Impala and Hyundai Elantra, among others.

One thing is certain, thieves never seem to take a break. That’s why we find the NICB’s latest annual report on the top holidays when vehicle theft occurs is very interesting. With 2015 just around the corner, you should keep in mind that the list is topped by New Year’s Day, when 2,184 cars were stolen in 2013. Closely following the start of 2013 were Halloween with 1,998 vehicles stolen; Memorial Day in which thieves managed to take 1,972 cars, and Labor Day where robbers didn’t rest and instead stole 1,915 cars.

Are you curious about the most stolen vehicles in the US? Let’s lock our cars and take a look at the countdown.
