WASHINGTON (SBG) -- This is probably one list you don’t want to be on. The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) released its annual “Hot Wheels” report, which identifies the top 10 most-stolen vehicles in the United States.
The current report breaks down the most-stolen vehicles in 2018 as well as the most-stolen vehicles from the 2018 model years.
Is your vehicle on the list? If you own a Honda, there’s a good chance it is because Civic and Accord are the top two most-stolen vehicles in 2018.
The top-10 most-stolen vehicles in 2018 (total vehicles stolen):
- Honda Civic (38,426): The most popular model year was 2000 with 5,290 vehicles stolen.
- Honda Accord (36,815): The most stolen model year was 1997 with 5,029 vehicles stolen.
