10 Most Stolen Cars Of 2018 (And 10 That Are Never Touched)

Car manufacturers strive annually to improve the security features of its car. The automobile companies know that the best sports cars in the world have no value if thieves can steal it. In the 90's, most car manufacturers failed to provide the adequate security features to prevent theft; hence, drivers bought steering-wheel and gear-leaver locks to protect their precious vehicles. Yet, thieves found a way to jigger the protection mechanisms and absconded with the car. With the car theft epidemic spiraling out of control, car manufacturers took drastic measures to fit its vehicles with state of the art anti-theft features. Some manufacturers were successful in combating theft while other companies failed, as thieves found a way to circumvent the subpar anti-theft features. Thieves used to target only old models due to the car's scant security features, but with the advent of technology, criminals are also targeting the new models. While any car is prone to theft, certain models are more likely to be targeted than other vehicles.

The motivation for the theft varies. Some cars on our list target are new while others are old and their parts are valuable. Whatever the reason for your tears, our list contains the cars that thieves have stolen the most, and the cars that no thief would touch.


The American manufacturer has made many brilliant SUVs for decades and thieves have noticed. A Cherokee is comfortable and can handle most terrains; hence why many drivers opt for that SUV. If you own a 2000 model, thieves are most likely to target your vehicle.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NCIB) reported that more than 9000 Cherokees were stolen in 2016.

Owners of the older Cherokee models should consider selling their vehicle and choose a newer model since it is equipped with better anti-theft protection. The newer models have proven to give thieves a difficult time since not as many are stolen.


The Impala has an anti-theft system, but it does not deter criminals. Instead, they seem to love the conservative car that Chevrolet has manufactured. Which model do they target the most? The 2008 model seems to be their priority. NCIB stated that almost 10000 Impalas were stolen in a year.

With average annual sales of 150000 units, 1 out of 15 Impalas will be stolen. To avoid being a statistic while driving an Impala, you should buy a newer model. After all, it is best to follow the philosophy 'Out with the old and in with the new.'
