The Top 10 Stolen Cars of 2007

The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) released their Top 10 list of the most stolen vehicles of 2007. As usual, the 1995 Honda Civic and 1991 Honda Accord sat at the top of the list. The older Hondas and Toyotas did not change much in appearance for quite a few years, so the parts fit on multiple models and it was easy to duplicate keys. There are also a lot of older cars still on the roads; I think it might be time for an upgrade! (Before someone steals it and leaves them with no trade-in).
NICB spokesman Frank Scafidi said, “It’s amazing to see how many folks get their cars stolen from leaving their keys in them. People should just use some basic common sense.” I know one of Runde’s customers reported having his XM radio receiver stolen out of his SUV a few weeks ago. He said that he isn’t used to locking up his vehicle — I think he’s lucky that the XM was all that was missing. Guess it’s time to start locking those doors. Overall, vehicle theft continues to decrease, and dropped 8.9% in 2007.

Fortunately for us, none of the cars that Runde’s sells made the top 10 list — although a few of the older trucks did. We like to think the American-made cars (GM & Ford models) are more difficult to break into, or most of their owners lock their vehicles!!
