Most-stolen vehicles: Not just old Hondas

Most-stolen vehicles: Not just old Hondas, Top 10 list of most-stolen vehicles filled with foreign sedans, American pickups, As it has for several years, the 1994 Honda Accord retained its title in 2011 as the nation's most-stolen vehicle in the National Insurance Crime Bureau rankings. The rest of the top 10 looked familiar as well, with crooks maintaining their preference for imported sedans, Detroit pickups and the occasional minivan. Yet this year's list comes with a warning: After a decade of losing targets to electronic deterrents, thieves are getting smarter.

The major trends in the annual NICB report remain as they have for years, with declining car thefts focused on older models with fewer anti-theft devices whose parts are in high demand. NICB also produces a state-by-state breakdown of the most-stolen models; in Kentucky, the full-size pickups lead the list, while only in Vermont do three models of Subarus crack the top ten.
