10 vehicles most often stolen by car thieves

For the first time, the Hot Wheels report from the National Insurance Crime Bureau looked at the 10 most stolen vehicles in 2012 by make and model, encompassing all model years. Before, only one make, model and year would appear in the top 10 stolen vehicles, even if other model years of the same car had earned a position on the list. As a result, the top 10 for this year shows that older cars and newer pickups are at the greatest risk for theft.
