You could be driving one of New York State's Top 10 'Hot Wheels', the most stolen cars of the year. National Insurance Crime Bureau compiled a list of the top 10 most stolen cars in every state. The National Insurance Crime Bureau, which has its headquarters in Des Plaines, Illinois,

is the nation's leading not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to combatting and preventing insurance crime through Intelligence, Analytics, and Operations; Education and Crime Prevention; and Strategy, Policy, and Advocacy.

Every year, the NICB sifts through data about vehicle thefts around the country to come up with its list. In the United States, the top 5 most stolen wheels for 2021 were,

2. Ford Pick-Up (Full Size) 2006 - 47,999

The NICB says that vehicle thefts increased by 8 percent in 2021 (compared to 2020).

David Glawe, President and CEO of NICB said,

Used car values are at historical highs. We have seen a nearly 35% increase in used car values over the last two years due to supply chain issues and inflation. Stolen cars can be shipped overseas and resold or broken down for valuable used car parts here in the U.S.

You might think that the list of the most stolen vehicles is full of luxury cars, but that's not actually the case.
