And The Most Frequently Stolen Vehicle In Canada Is…

If the picture didn’t already give it away, it’s the 2009 Toyota Venza. Shocked? Don’t blame you. The Cadillac Escalade and Honda Civic SiR have consistently traded the not so honourous title over the past several years.

It seems as though Venzas taken without permission are being sold to unsuspecting owners and it’s quite easy to do so. Also parts for the Venza are apparently in high demand (who would’ve thought), so those big 20 inch wheels are usually nothing but dollar signs for car thieves.

“Consumers need to be aware when they’re in the market for used vehicles or parts,” said Rick Dubin, Vice-President of Investigative Services at the IBC. “Those luxury, high-end vehicles may be hotter than you think.”

So Venza owners, be weary of where you park your family wagon, it’s more desirable than you think.The good news? Apparently vehicle theft in Canada is declining. In fact it’s down 15% from last year. The bad news is that vehicle recovery rate is also down.Did your car make the top 10 list of most stolen vehicles in Canada? Hit the jump to find out.
