Good news, bad news. The NICB recently released it’s list of the most stolen vehicles in 2013, by make and model. A quick glance at the list tells the story; foreign economy sedans and domestic made pick up trucks dominate the list. The Honda Accord came in in first place but, speaking of Detroit, all three of the US car manufacturers had full size pickup trucks in the top ten.
Interestingly, the auto theft statistics from Detroit in 2013 reported the Detroit auto thefts declined by 7+% to 12,341. Still not a great number, but at least the number is going in the right direction. The top models reported stolen in Detroit by NICB are the Chevy Impala, Dodge Caravan and Ford Fusion. Obviously with this many Detroit auto thefts, the work load for insurance investigators in the area has not fallen off and insurance rates are insanely high as a result.
