According to CCC Information Services Inc., an organization that monitors stolen and damaged vehicles, small cars are among the most targeted vehicles for theft. Apparently compacts are easy to steal, dismantle and then sell, mainly due to their popularity among import enthusiasts. The 1995-2001 Acura Integra dominates the list, taking six of the ten most stolen slots. The powerful 1.8-liter engine is easily inserted into the Honda Civic, a favorite among racers.

The 10 most stolen vehicles for 2005 include:
  1. 2001 BMW M roadster
  2. 1998 Acura Integra
  3. 2004 Mercury Marauder
  4. 1999 Acura Integra
  5. 1995 Acura Integra
  6. 2002 Audi S4
  7. 1996 Acura Integra
  8. 1997 Acura Integra
  9. 2001 Acura Integra (pictured)
  10. 2000 Jaguar XJR

      How is this list figured? Is it just raw numbers stolen? is it per thousand registered/sold? I know the Integras rank high on the charts regardless, but the rest irk me.

      My Saab is reliable because it's there when I get back to drive it. It seems like thieves don't appreciate hatchbacks.

      It's not that thieves don't appreciate hatchbacks, they just don't like Saabs. Kinda like the rest of the world.

      Looking at this list, MY conclusion is that "factory hot rods" are not safe...from theft. The #3 car is definitely NOT small, and 6 of the remaining 10 cars are basically the same car...a third generation Acura Integra.

      It looks like CCC Information Services...is an oxymoron of sorts, that is, this list is lacking in real information.

      Why would you steal a semi-sporty car (Integra) and put the engine in an econobox (Civic)? Crooks tend to be dumb, but surely there are limits.

      Many, many people will disagree with you, including me. The third generation Integra, like many Honda cars, is a good design that isn't too conservative, and isn't too radical. It will age well, and is already a classic in the sport compact world.

      Tiburon, eh not so much.

      "1. "2001 BMW M (M what?)"

      -Ahhh, that totally sucks, what I put in quotes above, is what Autoblog.com orginally had on the list.

      It orginally appeared just like above. It would be nice if autoblog could vouch for me :-)
