The Dodge Stratus and Intrepid were the most-stolen vehicles from the 2003 model year, according to data recently compiled by NHTSA. While overall theft rates of 2003 vehicles were down 48% from the previous model year to 1.84 thefts per 1000 vehicles, the Stratus had nearly 11 thefts/1000, while the Intrepid came in slightly lower at 10 thefts/1000. A Chrysler spokesman said he "wasn't sure" why this was so, but I think it probably has something to do with that report I saw on Detroit's Channel 7 news where a 17-year-old kid needed only a screwdriver to defeat the door and ignition lock cylinders.
