They loved the Civic in general, and they crowned it America's most stolen nameplate in 2018 by illegally taking possession of 38,426 examples from all model years. There were 36,815 units stolen in 2018, including 5,029 examples made in the 1997 model year. The ubiquitous Ford F-Series rounded out the top three with 36,355 examples declared stolen, including more 2006 models than any other year. While the most stolen cars in the United States are all older models, driving a newer car that's more advanced isn't necessarily a good way to fool thieves. 2017 examples of the Camry, the Altima, and the Corolla were declared stolen more often than those made in other years, while thieves on the prowl for a Sierra preferred the 2018 model. All told, 748,841 cars were reported stolen in the United States in 2018.
