What are the most stolen cars in California?

My city in California has had a spike in car thefts over the past few months. I have to park my car on the street, so I’m particularly worried. I added an anti-theft alarm, but I’m not sure if it will make a difference or if my car is just that easy to steal. What are some of the most stolen cars in California?

With over 168,000 car thefts each year—or 19 thefts every hour—California has more than double the number of grand theft autos than any other state. With that statistic, your concern is valid. Interestingly, the most stolen cars in California are all various older models of the Honda Civic.
In particular, the top three most-stolen cars in California are:
  • 2000 Honda Civic
  • 1998 Honda Civic
  • 1999 Honda Civic
These are followed by various model years of the Toyota Camry.
