An Infographic View of Auto Theft in the United States

June 27, 2012 at 4:46 pm


Some quick facts:

  • In 2010, there were 737,000 vehicle thefts and only 56% of those vehicles were ever recovered.
  • The average loss per vehicle was $6,152. Not exactly a small number by anyone’s standards.
  • What’s worse is that, if you own a Honda Accord, Honda Civic, and Toyota Camry, you are more likely to be a victim because these were the top three vehicles stolen in 2010.
  • The Ford Mustang made up a total of 9,116 instances of car theft in 2010, so we can only imagine how many of the top three vehicles were stolen during that time.
