(WFXR) — Nobody wants their cars stolen. However, if you drive a certain make and model, you could be more susceptible to theft. 

The National Insurance Crime Bureau found that the most stolen vehicle in the United States is the Honda Civic. Nearly 6% of all vehicles stolen in the U.S. in the past year were Honda Civics. The Honda Accord is the second most stolen vehicle.

Hondas are popular with thieves because the car parts are in great demand and can easily be resold on the black market.

The third most stolen vehicle is the full-size Ford Pickup. It’s believed thieves target pickup trucks when they intend to commit other crimes, such as hauling other stolen items and merchandise.
