List of the most stolen car models during the past year

posted by Kelly Nash - 

The National Insurance Crime Bureau just released their annual "Hot Wheels" reports, identifying the ten most stolen vehicles in the country, and it turns out, if you have a newer model car you can rest a little easier. 

Overall, Honda Accords and Civics make up a good portion of the list, but they aren’t the newer models. It seems older, pre-“smart key” cars are more likely to get stolen simply because it’s easier and they lack anti-theft technology. In fact, of the 2016 Accords, there were only 493 thefts last year, which is a huge decrease from previous years.
