And its not just expensive cars being nabbed, either. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), the following were the most stolen vehicles in 2008:

1. 1994 Honda Accord
2. 1995 Honda Civic
3. 1989 Toyota Camry
4. 1997 Ford F-150 Pickup
5. 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup
6. 2000 Dodge Caravan
7. 1996 Jeep Cherokee/Grand Cherokee
8. 1994 Acura Integra
9. 1999 Ford Taurus
10. 2002 Ford Explorer

If you happen to have one of the cars listed above, it doesn't mean you're powerless against thieves.

Esurance has put together some tips on avoiding auto theft:

1. Always lock your doors (even in your own driveway), avoid parking in risky areas, and never leave tempting valuables in your car (at least hide them).

2. Use aftermarket anti-theft devices. From the Club to VIN-etching, there are many products designed to prevent theft. Investing in one can help make your vehicle less of a target and might also qualify you for discount on your auto insurance.

3. If you live in an area with high theft rates or drive a theft-prone car, there are numerous tracking devices on the market that significantly increase the odds of recovering a vehicle.

4. No matter what type of theft-prevention you use, always have your vehicle fully insured and guarantee that you're covered in case of the worst.

LOOKING BACK AT THE SUPER STREET COROLLA The new 2021 Toyota Corolla is an entry-level car that we’ve had a ton of experience with as we built a 2019 hatchback two years ago. With the help of our friends at Auto Tuned and a rendering by Jon Sibal, we transformed our little XSE into a

Putting down the first few sentences of a feature like this 1987 Honda CRX Si is a little tougher than usual. It’s not the familiar story of picking up an old, used Honda, adding wheels and a drop before giving in and going all out on a full-blown build. Furthermore, to be clear, it’s also

Rodrez: It’s the measuring stick that offers as much speculation and attempts to discredit driver achievement as it does real-world data and raw, obsessively focused attempts to chip away at the clock. The Nurburgring serves as a standard by which most automakers set their sights. It arms internet debate specialists with numbers and comparisons by

It’s safe to say that Angel Pena, owner of this supercharged 2008 Acura TSX, has a “type.” Having been enamored with Acura’s entry-level sedan ever since it was first introduced, he knew right away he’d get his hands on one, and eventually, he did just that. Today, a decade later, he’s moved on to his
