Over the last six months, several of my neighbors have had the catalytic converter stolen out of their car in the middle of the night. It's a real issue and no one's been able to catch the culprits. I guess we should be thankful they're not taking the whole vehicle...
The National Insurance Crime Bureau just released their annual "Hot Wheels" report, identifying the ten most stolen vehicles in the country last year, so you may want to beware if you own them.
For the second year in a row, the Ford Full-Size Pick-Up tops the list of the most stolen vehicle.
According to the “Hot Wheels” report, 44,014 Ford Pick-Ups (Full Size) were stolen last year, up 13% from 2019, with 2006 the most stolen model.
Six of the Top 10 most stolen vehicles were Japanese models.
