The Honda Civic Hatchback has the honor of being the second most stolen car again. Its sister, the Honda Accord, is the most stolen car in 2014. Again. There are some things you can do to help to avoid the bummer of finding your Honda missing. But, there is only one sure cure for this problem.
Honda Civic Hatchback
Hondas are popular. They are popular with young people living on a budget, and they are even more popular with car thieves. But, it isn’t just any old Honda Civic Hatchback that is getting driven away to the chop shop. The Civics and Accords that are being stolen are the models 1996-1999. So, if you don’t want to wake up in the morning to find your Civic or Accord missing, try buying a new Honda. Of course, Delaware was the odd state where the 2003 Accord was the popular model with thieves. Nobody knows what goes on in Delaware.
The reasons why these old Honda Civic Hatchbacks and Accords are so popular for theft are varied. First of all, there are a lot of them on the road. They have always been a popular, good running car. But, the mid-1990s Hondas are just plain easier to steal. The best way to avoid losing your Honda is to buy a recent model, even if you’re in Delaware.
Other Ways to Help Avoid Theft
There are some other things you can do to avoid theft of your vehicle, Honda or not. First, lock your car and take the keys with you. It is just good common sense. Other than that you can have a flashing alarm visible on your dashboard (real or fake). Install a tracking device on your car or a kill switch. Any of these methods might help deter theft of your beloved Honda Civic Hatchback from the mid 1990s.
