Recently, the National Insurance Crime Bureau released their Hot Wheels report, indicating what vehicles are stolen the most across the United States.

The data is based on cars stolen in all of 2016. They break down the most stolen cars nationally as well as by state. Here were the most common kinds of cars stolen in the state of North Dakota in 2016:


 

Make/Model Most Common Year of Vehicle Number of Vehicles Stolen
1 Chevrolet Pick-Up (Full Size) 1999               136
2 Ford Pick-Up (Full Size) 2005                 80
3 Chevrolet Impala 2004                 45
4 Dodge Pick-Up (Full Size) 1997                 36
5 Pontiac Grand Prix 2002                 25
6 GMC Pick-Up (Full Size) 2012                 23
Jeep Cherokee/Grand Cherokee 1998                 23
7 Dodge Caravan 2000                 18
8 Honda Accord 2004                 17
9 Chevrolet Trailblazer 2004                 15

 

So if you have any of these vehicles, you may be more likely to be a victim of vehicle theft. Of course it is important to always lock your door and keep valuable items out of plain site.

Good luck out there.
