There are hundreds of thousands cars stolen each year in the United States with Ohio having some impressive, if not alarming numbers.
Criminals are generally without morals, and even with the number of security features being added to automobiles every year, the number of car thefts still peak over half a million. Being an informed consumer and owner of a car can greatly help protect against theft.
Every year, the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) releases the results of their “Hot Wheels” study, a list of the most frequently stolen cars in the United States and in individual states.
For the year 2014 in Ohio, the list of the top 10 most stolen cars are as follows:
