The Most Stolen Cars -2012

This post brought to you by Insurance Hunter. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

Every year the Insurance Bureau of Canada releases a report listing the most stolen cars of the year. The  cars on the list are often easier to steal and are therefore targeted by thieves.

For many vehicle owners it can be a little nerve racking taking a peek at the list. No one wants to see their vehicle on the list. 

Have a peek, is your car on the list?

Ten most stolen cars of 2012:

  1. 2000 Honda Civic SiR 2DR
  2. 1999 Honda Civic SiR 2DR
  3. 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer SS 4DR 4WD
  4. 2007 Ford F350 SD 4WD PU
  5. 2005 Cadillac Escalade 4DR AWD
  6. 2006 Ford F350 SD 4WD PU
  7. 2002 Cadillac Escalade 4DR AWD
  8. 2005 Ford F350 SD 4WD PU
  9. 2004 Ford F350 SD 4WD PU
  10. 1999 Acura Integra 2DR

The Honda Civic has been on list for as long as I can remember, and I have had friends who have avoided buying one because of it. Not to mention that they were paranoid about the higher cost of auto insurance.

Even if your vehicle is not on the list, there are still precautions you may want to take to reduce the risk of having your vehicle be stolen. 

Some of these ideas are simple, yet easy to forget, especially when you are in a hurry.

  1. Always lock your doors and roll up your windows
  2. Park in high traffic areas or attended lots
  3. At night, park in your garage or covered area if possible
  4. Install an alarm system if you don’t already have one on your car
  5. Never leave valuables in your car unattended. Keep them in the trunk.

Locking your doors is quite easy these days as most people have remotes for convenience. However, rolling up your windows on a hot summer day can often be a challenge. We usually leave our windows open just a crack so that it doesn't get too hot inside the car while it is parked. This of course is risky since any opening makes it just that much easier for a theft to happen.

We also try to keep our car in the garage, which has been simpler to do once we installed a garage door opener. 

I hope you try to keep some of these tips in mind next time your are out and about!
