Every 25 seconds a vehicle is stolen in the United States. Depending on where you live and where you park your car you could be a risk of losing your car to a professional car thief. The top ten cars stolen in 2004 include many common cars - not the high priced sports cars you might think.
Toping the list of stolen cars for 2004 are the 1995 Honda Civic, 1989 Toyota Camry, and 1991 Honda Accord. Also on the list are the 1994 Dodge Caravan, 1994 Chevrolet Pickup, and 1997 Ford F-150. These older cars all lack modern car security systems found in new cars and could all be protected with a car alarm.
