Most Stolen Cars
Drivers Should Avoid: Modesto, CA
Blame the economy, Albanian mobsters, or GTA 5, but there are some cities where being a car owner is basically equivalent to being prey. After all, under 12 percent of car thefts are ever solved (and Honda takes home top spots as the most desired/easiest to jack). No surprise that, once again, California takes home the statue, but unbelievably 8 of the top 10 cities for car theft are in California — Detroit, Baltimore, New York, New Orleans don’t even make the list. Topping this grim list is Modesto, a mid-sized suburban town east of San Fran, that had a stunning 4,260 reported thefts in 2012.
