Ten Most Stolen Cars in 2015

According to the statistics from the National Insurance Crime Bureau, the rate of stolen cars has continued in a downward trend since 2011. Overall advancements in vehicle security, tracking technology and monitoring systems have cut down car theft. They've recently released their latest report which recaps the number of stolen cars in 2015, and we break down this list to show you the ten most stolen cars in America last year.

If you find your make and model on this list, there's several steps you can take to stop car thieves cold. These measures can range in effectiveness and implementation, so when you want to stop thieves from stealing your car, here's a few pointers that can help.

Car Alarm - There are several different kinds of car alarms that provide a wide range of features, and many include a immobilizing device which will stop your car before the thief can make off with it.
Tracking device - These devices work on GPS signal to inform you and the authorities of the real time position of your stolen car.
Kill Switch - Usually installed on the fuel pump, these switches can surprise a car thief and leave them in a vulnerable state. Hide this switch to prevent your car from becoming a statistic.
