Garage Builder In ChicagolandMany people choose to build a new garage on their property as a result of experiences with theft. Even if you’re lucky enough to have never experienced a theft event, you may be wondering what the chances are that it could happen to you. Though all vehicles are at some risk of being stolen, certain cars are favored by thieves.

Thieves Target Popular Cars

You might imagine a thief going after a flashy Bentley or McLaren, but the reality is that most thieves prefer vehicles that can be easily broken down and stripped for parts. If you’re used to seeing cars just like yours on the road, you may be driving one of the most stolen vehicles in America.

The Most Stolen Type Varies by State

Researchers have found patterns for preferred body type in different regions of the United States. While pickup trucks are the most stolen body type in 30 of 50 U.S. states, the Chevrolet Impala (a sedan) was Illinois’ most stolen vehicle in 2018. Chevy pickups, Ford pickups, and the Honda Civic are also on the list of the most stolen vehicles in America.
