What are the most stolen cars in San Diego?
I just moved to San Diego and one of my new friends told me to watch my car to prevent theft. I’m not overly worried, but I want to make sure my car isn’t on the list of most stolen vehicles. What are some of the most stolen cars in San Diego?

San Diego is nowhere near the top of the list for car thefts among American cities. But with over 10,000 car thefts each year, a bit of precaution is necessary. While you certainly shouldn’t panic, you should take extra care if you’re driving a Honda Civic, Honda Accord, Honda CR-V, or Chevy Silverado.
According to the San Diego District Attorney’s Regional Auto Theft Task Force, the most stolen vehicles are:
- 2000 Honda Civic
- 1998 Honda Civic
- 1999 Honda Civic
- 1997 Honda Civic
- 2000 Honda CR-V
- 1996 Honda Accord
- 2001 Honda Accord
- 2001 Honda CR-V
- 1996 Honda Civic
- 2002 Chevy Silverado
You can see a theme here in terms of older-model Hondas being particularly susceptible to theft. While buying an aftermarket anti-theft device or a GPS tracker can prevent theft or allow you to recover your car, you’re on the hook for damage or replacement of your vehicle unless you have comprehensive coverage.
Although this coverage can be expensive, it’s far cheaper than taking a total loss. On top of that, you can save an average of $887 each year by shopping around for comprehensive coverage on the Jerry app.
