Most Stolen Vehicles in Louisville KY

Most Stolen Vehicles:

Just because your Honda is a clunker doesn’t mean it’s safe to leave it unlocked while you make a coffee run.

Approximately 1 million vehicles are stolen nationwide every year, but the 1994 Honda Accord is the most stolen car, according to an Aug. 24 report by the National Insurance Crime Bureau. Last year, more than 55,000 Accords were stolen in the U.S. Needless to say, the thieves aren’t after style, just substance.


Older vehicles like the 15-year-old Accord are pinched so often because their lack of theft-deterrent technology makes them easy to access and their parts–headlights, tires, catalytic converters and anything containing copper–are valuable on the black market. It also comes down to pure numbers, says Frank Scafidi, a spokesman for the National Insurance Crime Bureau: “Hondas and Toyotas, they sell millions of these things, so there are more targets, obviously.”
