Honda, Toyota most popular with car thieves
If you're the owner of a Honda or Toyota, you may want to take extra care in setting those car alarms. Vehicles from both carmakers were ranked as the most stolen cars in the United States, according to the annual LoJack Vehicle Theft Recovery Report. For the fifth consecutive year, the Honda Accord was ranked as the most stolen vehicle. And while three SUVs/trucks from General Motors made the top-10, no cars from GM caught the attention of car thieves.
