What kind of car is stolen the most
While most of us are out celebrating the warm weather in the summer months, there are unfortunately some people who take advantage of others by stealing one of their most precious material items: their vehicle. Aside from popsicles and pools, summer is also unfortunately known as carjacking season.
There are a number of precautions you can take to prevent your vehicle from being the next victim of a vehicle heist, including the obvious solution of installing an anti-theft alarm.
What may surprise you more than summer being known for carjacking is what kind of car is stolen the most: The Honda Accord. The next most-stolen vehicle is the Honda Civic followed by the Toyota Camry and the Toyota Corolla.
Honda vehicles are the most-stolen vehicles mostly because of their popularity among drivers, which means there are plenty of people in need of Honda parts. Honda Accord sellers can often times get at least two or three times its value for selling the parts separate from the vehicle, as Honda parts are interchangeable throughout model years.
The Honda Accord has been the most popular stolen vehicle for a span of a five years now, making vehicle owners and Honda lovers a little on edge. Some easy tips on how to prevent your vehicle from getting stolen are below. Above all, use common sense and be safe. We don’t want anyone risking their life for their vehicle. While it may sometimes be your lifeline, your vehicle doesn’t provide you with life.
-Install an anti-theft device
This one doesn’t need explanation
-Keep it in a garage or out of plain view
Thieves often go for a vehicle on the streets in which they can make a quick getaway
-Keep your vehicle in good shape
Not only will this be good for you, but thieves can be deterred by a nice-looking vehicle because they may assume it will have an alarm, whereas an older vehicle that looks run down most likely will not have an alarm.
-Don’t leave valuables in plain sight
Again, this one doesn’t need explanation.
