Do you own a 1994 Honda Accord? If you do, lock your doors! If you own a 1995 Honda Civic or a 1989 Toyota Camry, lock your doors! These were the top 3 most stolen vehicles for 2008. The top 5 was rounded out by 1997 Ford F-150 and 2004 Dodge Ram. Even though you wouldn’t think anyone would want these cars, people do. First of all it’s easier to steal these older models, because there are no anti-theft features in the cars and the parts are still good. The stealers want to sell the parts. The good news is that auto-theft has dropped by 13.7% from 2007. Also, vehicle-theft has dropped for the last five years in a row.
The NICB (National Insurance Crime Bureau) recommends that you protect your vehicle with a four-layer plan. Lock your car, get a car alarm, get a immobilizing device (kill switch or steer wheel lock), and a tracking system for your car. Get all of these things, and your car should be safe……possibly I guess. Anyone have all these things on their vehicle?????
