Top 10 Cars Most Likely to be Stolen

Top 10 Cars Most Likely to be Stolen

9. Infiniti FX35

Built by the same company for very different purposes, the Infiniti FX35 is next on the list. It uses a naturally-aspirated 3.5-liter V6 to offer 303 hp and a 0-60 sprint in 6.1 seconds. Nissan’s luxury brand frequently makes use of the VQ V6 engines, and often to critical acclaim. Maybe that’s why car thieves took a shine to it.

Of course, the FX35 is no longer available. The badge denotes a 3.5-liter version of Nissan’s six-cylinder engine which was replaced in the model line by the 3.7-liter version that offers an improved 325 hp.

  • 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

  • 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.
