Top Ten Most Stolen Cars

Are not cars. Most of them are trucks. I wonder why?

I am really surprised to see the Inifiti G37 on there. I wonder if they count ripping off rims from these cars, then no doubt about the escalade. Interesting, thanks for sharing!!

7 out of the 10 cars are essentially the same vehicle (Underneath)

In the early 1990's, I had a new S-10. After it was stolen twice, I was told by the cops that all GM trucks are easy to steal...got rid of it after that.

I used to visit the Dallas auto pound auctions and there were always lots of GM products there from the 80's and 90's.

Without going into any detail here I can say that if you know how you can drive off with one of these in about one minute.

GM finally corrected this design flaw in the late 90's.

I think these thieves are misinterpreting government motors.

Ooooohhh, so who's 107 did I just steal? I should have known it wasn't your 107, because it had rust on it. Please Forgive.
