TOP 10 STOLEN CARS: Is Yours On The List?

Posted by

Lock it up and set the alarm: the NICB has released its latest most-stolen list, and it’s worth a look to see if your wheels have ended up on it.

Every year, the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) digs into the data of the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) to learn which vehicles are the most desired by thieves.

These NICB findings cover the top 25 stolen vehicles from the 2014 model year. As in previous years, the most popular vehicles are the ones targeted, and there are a couple of surprises along the way – including one from a Chinese manufacturer.

#10 – Ford Focus. Ford‘s compact sedan and hatchback garnered the focus of 505 successful theives.

#9 – Chevrolet CruzeChevy’s direct competitor for the Ford Focus is close to its thefts, at 566.

#8 – Toyota Corolla. Another compact sedan in line with the Focus and Cruze, the 2014 Corolla counted 578 thefts.


#7 – Taotao Industry Company Scooter/Moped. These Chinese bikes racked up 592 thefts from the 2014 model year.


#6 – Dodge Charger. The big-sedan 2014 Charger charted 680 thefts.

#2 – Toyota Camry. The runner-up is the midsized 2014 Camry, which attracted 869 thefts.


#1 – Ford F-SeriesThe best-selling truck is also the most-stolen 2014 model, with 964 of them lost to thieves.

Some interesting data points:

– The Honda Accord topped the list for all cars stolen, with many of the most popular coming from the late-’90s. But the 2014 Accord ranked far lower than the Camry and Altima, down at # 19

– Same with the Honda Civic: it didn’t even make the top 25 of 2014s stolen, while it’s #2 on the all-years list, with 1998-2000 being the years that popped up the most

– Chevy’s Malibu just missed the top 10, despite the fact that it sells in fewer numbers than other midsizers on the list

– You think that muscle cars would be plucked first, but the highest to chart was the Ford Mustang, at #16. The Chevy Camaro was right behind at #17

Most saddening was poring through the state-level data and continuing to find the long-cancelled and still-adored Acura Integra is still being stolen in droves. We’d sure love to have an Integra around for weekend autocrossing, but even after twenty years, its theft risk is still too high.
