When you are in the market for a new car, one of the last things you may think about is where that model ranks in terms of the most stolen cars. When it comes to new models, you may find yourself surprised to know which ones are the most frequently targeted. If the Dodge Charger has caught your eye, you are not alone. In fact, it has caught the eye of many car thieves as well. With 6.04 cars stolen for every 1,000 manufactured and sold in 2010. The Pontiac G6 was nearly as popular, seeing thefts of more than four cars per 1,000. Rounding out the top five is the Chevrolet Impala, Chrysler 300 and the Infiniti FX.
If you think buying used cars will keep you out of the risk zone, think again. In fact, when it comes to the most stolen vehicles nationwide, older cars take the trophy. The 1994 Honda Accord faces the biggest bulls eye for car thieves, but it is not alone. The top five nationwide also includes the 1998 Honda Civic, 2006 Ford F-150, 1991 Toyota Camry, and the 2000 Dodge Caravan.
