America’s Most Wanted — By Car Thieves
It’s safe to assume that if one car is easier to steal than another it makes a more enticing target for a car thief — and probably a good reason why the list of most stolen cars in America is predominantly populated by older vehicles with little anti-theft protection. However, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau — which tracks annual vehicle theft data across the U.S. — there were still plenty of new models appropriated by thieves last year. “While older vehicles still dominate our Hot Wheels most stolen list, the number of late model vehicles with anti-theft protection on the list goes to show that technology isn’t foolproof,” said NICB President and CEO Joe Wehrle. “Criminals are doing their best to defeat anti-theft technology through hacking and other means while, at the same time, manufacturers and others are working to improve security.” And thus the “hot wheels” struggle continues . . . so here’s a look at the 2015 cars and trucks most stolen last year, as reported by the NICB.
