The Highway Loss Data Institute recently released its annual list of the most- and least-stolen vehicles,  and a perusal of the top 10 most stolen cars list indicates thieves still favor large pickups and SUVs. The No. 1 stolen car of the year, for instance, was the Cadillac Escalade, a large luxury SUV. Thieves are also going for large cars known for their power engines, including the Chrysler 300Dodge Charger and Nissan Maxima. The Highway Loss Data Institute bases its ranking on data provided by insurers representing about 80% of the market for privately insured vehicles. Below are 5 of the least stolen vehicles to view the full list check out the full article at yahoo.com!
