Default Honda Accord, Civic are America's most stolen cars

Filed under: Budget, Sedan, Government/Legal, Safety, Honda

The National Insurance Crime Bureau has released its latest Hot Wheels study on the most popular stolen cars and trucks for 2012. The study has changed a bit from past years, with the new findings listing only the make and model of each vehicle, while taking into account all model years in its totals. Previous iterations only focused on the most stolen vehicles of a particular model year, with that make and model not appearing anywhere else on the list so as not to appear to call out a particular car. Confusing, eh? Said another way, in previous studies, if the three most stolen vehicles were the 2006, 2007 and 2008 Belchfire Turbo from Fictitious Motors, only the model year with the highest number of thefts would make the list.

The new study takes all model years into consideration while breaking down the number of vehicles stolen per model year in a full, in-depth report. Separately, the NICB is also listing the top 25 new vehicles stolen in 2012. That list is limited exclusively to model year 2012 entries.

Honda took the top two spots in the most stolen vehicles list, with 58,596 Accord models stolen and 47,037 Civic models stolen. The study is interesting, though, in that the most recent model year for the Accord is 1997, while the most recent the Civic is 2000. In fact, Hondas from 1990 to 2000 make up 16 of the top 20 cars stolen in 2012, according to the NICB. Compare that with the MY2012 list, where Honda's vehicles are eleventh and fifteenth, and it looks like the Japanese brand has been beefing up its theft control.

The two lists do have a few common denominators - the Ford F-Series is third on the most stolen list and sixth on the MY2012 list, while the Toyota Camry sits fourth and fifth, respectively. The Nissan Altima, which ranks first in MY2012 thefts is ninth on the most stolen list.

We've posted the press release from the NICB with the top ten vehicles stolen in 2012 and the top ten most stolen MY2012 vehicles in the press release below. The complete lists can be downloaded, free of charge, from the National Insurance Crime Bureau's website.Continue reading Honda Accord, Civic are America's most stolen cars
