According to a new report released by worldwide tracking and recovery system company LoJack, the Honda Accord ranks as the most stolen and recovered vehicle for the fifth year in a row.
The 2013 LoJack Vehicle Theft Recovery Report is gathered from data provided by 27 states via The International Justice And Public Safety Network as well as California law enforcement, and is specific to stolen cars, trucks and SUVs equipped with the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System that were recovered between January and December 2013.
“Today’s thieves are highly skilled professionals, and LoJack’s data reveals that stolen cars, trucks and SUVs equipped with the LoJack system were recovered 90+ percent of the time in 2013,” said Patrick Clancy, the Vice President of Law Enforcement for LoJack Corporation. “The latest statistics from the FBI indicate that nearly half of vehicles stolen are not returned to the rightful owners, resulting in millions of dollars in assets lost by vehicle owners. The LoJack system has proven to be a highly effective tool to combat vehicle theft.”
