The List of Most Stolen Cars

This summer’s gloomy weather has indeed ruined the vacation of many Quebecers. In fact, the American tourism industry has seen a noticeable increase in the number of Quebecers who have chosen Maine and New Jersey as vacation destinations this summer, and this is despite the low Canadian dollar, the election of Donald Trump and the festivities surrounding the 375th anniversary of Montreal and the 150th anniversary of Canada.

Are you part of those vacationers who will be leaving towards American soil? If so, you would be interested in the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) that has just been released. As every year, the NICB compiles a list of the top 10 most stolen cars in the United States. For the record, this list does not change much from one year to the next and the same most stolen cars reappear. For the fourth straight year, the Honda Accord has taken the number one spot.

Below is the list of the 10 most stolen vehicles in the United States in 2016:

  • Toyota 4Runner 2015
  • Toyota 4Runner 2014
  • Lexus RX350 2013
