Most Stolen Cars

This list of the most stolen cars in 2009 was compiled by the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), which is a not-for-profit organization financed by auto insurers. They monitor every report of a stolen car.
  • Toyota Camry
  • Honda Accord
  • Honda Civic
  • Oldsmobile Cutlass
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • Toyota Corolla
  • Ford Taurus
  • Chevrolet Caprice Classic
  • Ford F-150
From this list of stolen cars, the most recent models are put on the market once again after some slight modifications to conceal the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). Older models are stolen so that the parts can be distributed among unscrupulous mechanics who then install them in your car, passing them off as brand-new and making a hefty profit in the process.
Toyota and Honda parts are especially in great demand since they fit different models of their make from the same year; they're basically the equivalent of type O-negative blood - universal donors.
