Honda Tops Top 10 List of Frequently Stolen Vehicles in Canada

Basing on the list compiled by the Insurance Bureau of Canada, the most frequently stolen vehicle in Canada comes from the stable of the producer of the high quality Acura CL bumper bracket, Honda.

Honda Civic is one of the most popular stolen vehicles in Canada for three years in a row specifically the 1999 and 2000 Honda Civic SiR 2-door.

The 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX/WRX STi 4-door hold the number one spot in terms of highest theft claims.

Aside from the two Honda models and the Subaru, three Dodge Caravans were also included on the top 10 list. Here are the Top 10 Stolen Vehicles in Canada:

1. 1999 Honda Civic SiR 2-door

2. 2000 Honda Civic SiR 2-door

3. 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX/WRX STi 4-door AWD

4. 1999 Acura Integra 2-door

5. 1994 Dodge/Plymouth Grand Caravan/Voyager

6. 1994 Dodge/Plymouth Grand Caravan/Voyager AWD

7. 1994 Dodge/Plymouth Caravan/Voyager

8. 1998 Acura Integra 2-door

9. 2000 Audi TT Quattro 2-door Coupe

10.1994 Dodge/Plymouth Shadow/Sundance 2-door Hatchback

Richard Dubin explained that the vehicles included in the list lacks an electronic immobilizer which is a special type of security device that shuts off once or more parts of the engine’s electrical system including the starter, ignition or fuel system. The device automatically disarms whenever an unauthorized security code is received in case there is an attempt to start the engine.

Mr. Dubin also added that the vehicles included in the top 10 stolen vehicles are also viewed as easy to sell for parts and to strip. “You’ve got cars like the (Acura) Integra, the (Audi) Quattro, the (Subaru) Impreza and the (Honda) Civic — these are cars that are sporty and desirable, so if they’re easy to steal they’re going to take them,” he said.

And of course if there is the list of the most frequently stolen vehicles in Canada there is also the list of the least stolen vehicles and this include the following vehicles:

1. 2003 Buick Le Sabre 4-door

2. 2003 Cadillac Deville 4-door

3. 2002 Ford/Mercury Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis 4-door

4. 2000 Saturn SW1 Wagon

5. 2000 Lincoln Continental 4-door

6. 2000 Volvo S70 4-door

7. 1998 Hyundai Accent 4-door

8. 1997 Buick Regal 4-door

9. 1996 Buick Park Avenue 4-door

10. 2001 Toyota Highlander 4-door 2WD

According to the Insurance Bureau of Canada’s website: “Car thieves have absolutely no regard for public safety and the rules of the road. Every year approximately 40 people die and 65 are injured as a direct result of auto theft. When it’s in the hands of a thief, a stolen car is like a loaded gun.”

The Insurance Bureau of Canada also said that the estimated additional auto theft costs on insurance premium for each policyholder is $48 which will reach $1.2 billion per year once health care, court, policing, and other expenses are taken into consideration.
