A recent study gauged the potential for vehicle theft. The studies look at these vehicles with the highest frequency of theft claims. The top 10 models on that list are all sport utility vehicles, seven of which are equip with soft tops.
Reports estimate that nearly 2 million vehicle thefts happen each year in North America. Certain other vehicles are also favorites of car thieves. For example, Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Ford Taurus models rank high for frequently targeted passenger cars.
If your vehicle or vehicles fall into one of the high-risk categories, you may want to consider having a theft deterrent device or system added to your vehicle, if one wasn’t factory installed when you purchased it. You can further protect your vehicle by always locking it and taking the keys with you – even when it’s parked in your driveway. Purchasing a club can also assist you. Clubs can prevent people from stealing your car.
