Every State Where Your Car Has a Good Chance of Being Stolen

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 20, 2018

In 2017, across the U.S. 773,139 auto thefts occurred. That’s a 7% increase over 2016’s record making it 237.4 for every 100,000 people. Using the National Insurance Crime Bureaus collected data, 24/7 Wall St. pulled together a list of the city in every state where your car has a good chance of being stolen. If you have your car sitting with a for sale sign in the window in one these cities in listed, you might want to get an instant cash offer and sell your car to us. We buy cars fast, safe, and easy and pay you more than you’ll find anywhere else. 

Obviously, where a person lives can greatly affect the chances of car theft, and a city with a high car theft rate does not equate to a high crime area, nor does it indicate a poor community. It simply means for whatever the reason, they are target cities. The majority of all 50 cities have higher education levels, low poverty rates, and household incomes higher when compared to statewide figures.

U.S. auto thefts, more than not, are highly lucrative and meticulously planned schemes for evading capture. Large crime ring organizations running massive operations, according to the NICB, are often the ones behind these crimes operating inside certain major cities.

You might think the expensive cars, exotics for instance, would be on the hit list, but Honda Civics and Accords, Ford pickup trucks and Chevrolets are by far the highest targets; especially older vehicles without modern security you find in newer models.
