Nationally, the most stolen cars are usually Honda”s and Toyota”s, but in Michigan that is certainly not the case. Car thieves there heavily seek out the – drumroll please – 2000 Dodge Caravan – cue crashing symbols. As to why this is, “It has to be supply and demand: The parts are still good, the chop shops have a demand, and so the thieves deliver the supplies,” according to executive director of the Michigan Auto Theft Prevention Authority.
The ATPA”s list of most stolen cars includes the; 1999 Dodge Caravan, 2000 Dodge Intrepid, 1998 Dodge Caravan, 1997 Dodge Caravan, 1999 Dodge Intrepid, 2000 Jeep Cherokee, 1997 Dodge Caravan, 2002 Dodge Intrepid, 1997 Ford Taurus, 2007 GMC Yukon and 1999 Ford Taurus.
This makes sense in a state that is the center of the American automotive industry – and where American cars dominate the roads.
