Default I bought a 1997 Honda Accord. Should I be worried it could be stolen?

My friends told me that the hondas are stolen because of the parts, specially civic and accord. Did i make a mistake by buying this car?

any car can be stolen, any make or model. some are just more desired by thieves because of thier popularitytake precautions. get an alarm, and a steering wheel lock.and have full coverage insurance.

Sofy are you going to waste precious time worrying about a car? Get full coverage insurance if that's not possible get a alarm. Why worry about things that are replaceable...Life is way to short

The best thing to do, is like the other say. Just get full coverage insurance. Alarms are just an annoying feature. If a thief wants a car bad enough, they will take it. An alarm will do nothing.Also, look up online how high the auto theft is where you live. I've had my Civic with a lot of mods done to it for about 4 years now. My only theft is my door locks. It's never been touched. Just be cautious where you park it at night. If you can, park it close to windows (house windows). Look into Lojack. And also look into a fuel cutoff switch. It's VERY easy to install. You'll want to install it at a place where only you know where it is. That way if a thief does get into your car, and starts it, the car will not receive any fuel until the switch is turned on.

alot of cars are stolen, especially hondas because of the demand they have. check your vin# on carfax.com, another thing you could do is with hondas you could buy a kit to shut off the fuel rail so if they try to take it, it wont start. you could also buy a autoloc. its a bar you put over the brake petal so the theives have extreme difficulty to steal the car ie if you have it on the brake you cant press the brake to remove it from park (automatic) and if you have the fuel shutoff it would be extremly unlikely that they would keep trying. they might just steal the sterio and leave.
