America's Most Frequently Stolen Cars

Posted: Updated:

Better be extra careful if you own a 1994 Honda Accord.

That car model was the most frequently stolen in the U.S. last year, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau’s annual Hot Wheels study (h/t: NBC News). Despite having a resale value of less than $2,000, the car has topped the list since 2008, thanks largely to the model’s popularity and longevity, according to ABC 15.

Though car owners may want to be particularly careful with certain models, the rate of car thefts has fallen 3.3 percent since 2010 to the lowest rate since 1967, according to FBI crime statistics.

If your car does get jacked, don’t lose hope. Recently, a California man recovered his car via eBay 42 years after it was stolen.

Below are the cars most likely to be stolen:
