The National Insurance Crime Bureau just released their annual "Hot Wheels" reports, identifying the ten most stolen vehicles in the country. Good news if you have a newer model car. 

Popular cars including Honda Accords and Civics make up a good portion of the list, but they aren’t the newer models. Beware if you have an older, pre-“smart key” car. They are  more likely to get stolen simply because it’s easier and they lack anti-theft technology. Last year’s most stolen vehicle of 2016 was actually a 1997 Honda Accord, with 7,527 reported thefts, with the 1998 Honda Civic coming in second with 7,478 thefts.  Check out the top ten lists below.
