Re: Comparing the most stolen cars in the states

yeah it is pretty funny how people go after not so good cars. oh well, knowing that they will mostly go after not so good cars keeps my baby safe.

*EDIT* i just thought of a reason why they go after cars like that. it is because people with not so good cars will think that nobody will steal them, so they don't lock them and that makes them an easy target.

Re: Comparing the most stolen cars in the states

The reason those cars get stolen is because they are common, hence change the VIN and plates and not many dumbasses are the wiser.

Add to that- every single one of those cars are a piece of piss to break into.

Stealing anything nice will make your offence stick out like a sore thumb.

Well the reason for stealing integras is their engines. the popularity of b18 engine swaps is so high that they are selling like hotcakes.

I have no ideea why saturns placed so high though

Like I said....Easy to nick

That said, I'd probably steal a Lada before I stole a Saturn

Plus, high-end cars like Mercedes are IMPOSSIBLE to steal without the key. Notice how most of the cars on the list are older, they're probably not that hard to break in to and don't take much to get the car started.
