Top 10 Stolen Vehicles

​Stolen Vehicles Cost Everyone

Auto theft is more than an insurance problem; it's an expensive social menace. Beyond replacing or repairing stolen vehicles, auto theft costs include inflated health care and treatment costs, and investigative and judicial costs linked to detecting and penalizing fraudsters and thieves.

Why Does a Criminal Target a Vehicle?

How often your make and model of vehicle is stolen is one of the factors insurers use to set your insurance premium. Thieves generally steal vehicles for one of four reasons:

  1. To sell abroad: Stolen vehicles are often immediately packed – with their vehicle identification numbers (VINs) still intact – and shipped abroad, where they are sold for many times their original market value.
  2. To sell to unsuspecting consumers: Stolen vehicles may be given a false VIN and then sold to unsuspecting consumers. They can also be dismantled and sold for parts.
  3. To get somewhere: This may be referred to as “joyriding.” Auto theft of any kind is a crime and innocent people may get hurt or killed as a result.
  4. To commit another crime: Stolen vehicles used to commit other crimes are often recovered – abandoned and badly damaged – within 48 hours of their theft.
