AMERICA'S MOST STOLEN VEHICLES
The 1995 Sturn SL, received the dubious honor of being the most stolen vehicle of 2003, according to the most recent stolen vehicle report from CCC Information Services Inc. They based their report on the number of vehicles thefts in 2003 compared to the number of registered vehicles and found that one out of every 200 1995 Saturn SL were second and third on the list.

Thieves still prefer cars over SUV's or pickups- although large SUV's are becoming more common on the lists. In two seaprate studies, one from CCC and the other from National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), at least seven of the ten most commonly stolen vehicles in te United States are cars, with Acura Integra, Toyota Camry, Honda Civic and Honda Accord prominent in the lists.

The 2003 stolen vehicle report from CCC Information Services Inc. is based on the rate of theft for a vehicle as a percentage of the total number of that vehicle registered. Six Acura Integra with consecutive model years (1994-1999) account for six of the top eight spots, of stolen vehicles.

In recent study of the calendar year 2002, said the Camry was the first in theft,then the Accord as the second. Both are among America's bestselling autos. In the third spot is the HOnda Civic.

According to NCIB, the most popular model year of Camry among thieves was year 1989.According to the NCIB, motor vehicle thefts in 2002 totaled 1.2 million, which was a sligth increase over 2001. The NCIB figures come from FBI Uniform Crime Reports and include all reports of vehicle theft, inclduing cars that have a few parts removed, are taken for joyrides and later recovered, as well as vehicles that disappear and are never returned to their owners.

The SUV's with the highest theft rates, according to the CCC 2003 stolen vehicle report, are the 2000 Mitsubishi Montero and the 1996 Chevrolet Tahoe, Jeep's Cherokee and Grand Cherokee models are the most stolen SUV's according to NICB, while the most stolen truck, according to the same report, is the Chevrolet Silverado full size pickup, fourth on the list.
