Top 10 Stolen Vehicles

Each year, IBC produces a list of the top 10 stolen vehicles in Canada and in specific regions throughout the country. This data is made available to Équité Association for use with its members.

​Stolen Vehicles Cost Everyone

Automobile theft is much more than an insurance problem; it's an expensive social menace. According to government-approved estimates, auto insurance fraud – including theft – costs Ontarians up to $1.6 billion yearly. These costs include fixing or replacing stolen vehicles, inflated health care and treatment costs, and the 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.
