The Honda Accord and Honda Civic have long been a favorite of car thieves. Vehicle anti-theft device giant LoJack released an interesting study that names the Honda Accord the number one most stolen vehicle in the country; the Honda Civic is number three.
Interestingly, the most stolen color of car is black. But I digress.
Washington ranked 10th in the nation for stolen and returned cars using LoJack and had a couple cities that stood out in terms of stolen vehicles. Yakima ranks 5th and Spokane 9th!
According to the article, “While some states may score lower on overall theft rankings — as Washington does — there can be hot spots within those states that are far more active among auto thieves than the statewide data might suggest.”
“Take whatever measures you need to protect your vehicle, apparently especially if it’s a Honda Accord or Civic,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager of Apple Valley Honda dealership in Wenatchee. “We have a couple cities in Eastern Washington that have a serious reputation for car theft, protect your Honda.”
