    Is your car on the most stolen car list

    Most-stolen cars
    Older Hondas and Toyotas still popular with car thieves, but half the top ten are light trucks.

    NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - The 1995 Honda Civic was the most-stolen car during 2004, according to statistics from the National Insurance Crime Bureau.

    Of the top 10 most-stolen vehicles last year, six were Japanese brands. All four domestic vehicles on the list are light trucks, including one minivan.

    The large number of Honda Civics on the road probably accounts for its appearance at the top of a list like this, said Chris Naughton, a spokesman for Honda.

    Popularity and longevity have a lot to do with a vehicle's popularity as a theft target, agreed Frank Scafidi, a spokesman for the NICB. Not only are there more vehicles available to steal, but as vehicles get older they require parts more frequently, creating demand for parts taken from stolen cars.

    Overall, motor vehicle theft was down 1.9 percent compared to 2003, according to NICB. A total of 1,237,114 personal motor vehicles were reported stolen in 2004, which was 23,357 fewer than in the previous year. The western United States, however, posted a 3.2 percent increase in vehicle thefts, according to the NICB.

    Types of vehicles stolen can vary by the region and state, said Scafidi. For example, the 1999 Bombardier Ski-Doo snowmobile was one of the ten most-stolen vehicles in Maine, he said.
