Top 10 Cars Most Likely to be Stolen

Top 10 Cars Most Likely to be Stolen

10. Nissan GT-R

Would you want to know if the government listed your car among the 10 most likely models to be stolen?

There’s a chance your baby is on here, so read on to learn what the latest information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has to say. The statistics are based on car thefts in 2011, which is the latest year available.

Would you really be that shocked to see a balaclava-wearing jerk jimmying his way into your GT-R? After all, the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 made 485 hp that year, although that’s increased to 545 hp for the model year 2014 Track Edition.

  • The Chevrolet HHR was built on the same platform as the Cobalt, and shares quite a few parts in common when it comes to the engine, suspension, and knowing GM, the interior. Now, the Cobalt wasn’t exactly a heart-stopping car either, but it sold pretty well in North America, so parts are probably still in demand. Perhaps more research into the criminal economics of car theft would have made this article better. That and not making it a slideshow.

    Anyone else notice how the author loathes GM? Meanwhile the jap crap’s which are stolen are not drilled for being underpowered, over rated piles of junk which will all be crushed within 10 years of the purchase date.

    For real? Honda civic is not on this list?

  • Ricerrick

    This list is nothin but a joke and contradicts prity much every other list I’ve ever read. The author is definetly a GM fanboy. And how many Lamborghini Gallardo’s do you really think will be stolen…get real

    “If” this list were actually factual, we’d have to conclude that today’s car thiefs are no brighter than today’s journalists … right?

  • caleb

    I figure a jeep would have made the list…

  • Jeep

  • Jay

    I’d better put my boots on, because the BS is getting thick! Luke Vanderzande, you are full of it. The number one stolen car for years, and remains so, is a used HONDA ACCORD.

    Thanks for reading Jay. I think you might have missed the part where I pointed out that this was information taken from NHTSA and that it applies to 2011.
