The National Insurance Crime Bureau just released the annual list of most stolen vehicles both nationally and by state.

The 1997 Accord is the most stolen vehicle in North Carolina and the third most stolen nationally.

Ford and Chevrolet pickups are also in high demand by thieves, though they like them newer in North Carolina than nationally.

With the exception of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Cherokee, all the most stolen vehicles in North Carolina are family sedans.

Car thefts were also up 13 percent nationally in 2020 as compared to 2019.
