Safety is a major concern for many folks when they think about selling their car. However, some people don't even think about it. According to the Federal Bureau of Statistics, car jackings make up 3% of all thefts. This may seem like a low number, but the terror of being car jacked would leave many people wishing the car had just been stolen when they weren't in it. They are also far more likely to happen in urban areas although this is true for all vehicle thefts and more shockingly only 12% of thefts are ever cleared, despite being made a Federal Crime in 1994 with the the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act.

10% of all thefts in the USA take place in the north east. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, the most frequently stolen cars were:

1) 1994 Honda Accord

2) 1995 Honda Civic

3) 1991 Totota Camry

4) 1997 Ford F150 Pick Up

5) 2004 Dodge Ram Pick Up

6) 2000 Dodge Caravan

7) 1994 Chevrolet Pick Up

8) 1994 Acura Integra

9) 2002 Ford Explorer

10) 2009 Toyota Corolla

What's striking about this list is that these are not generally high performance vehicles being stolen. They are every day cars that we all use. Criminals clearly don't discriminate.
