Top 10 Stolen Vehicles in Ontario 2022 Update
Of course you’re looking for cheap auto insurance – that’s a given. Getting the best insurance rates possible depends on so many different factors that come into play when you’re researching and getting quotes for coverage. It should come as no surprise that one major factor is the car you drive – the make and model and its likelihood of being involved in an auto insurance claim. One very common claim that can play a role in how rates are set is having your car stolen. If it’s more likely to be the target of vehicle theft, it’s likely to have higher costs for coverage than its less appealing counter parts.
It’s interesting to note that some of the trends that we have been discussing in auto theft are showcased in this list – high end cars (regardless of whether it’s a truck, SUV or sedan) are often a target for their lucrative returns in the resale and export of stolen vehicles. And the technology that newer cars come with, such as keyless entry fobs, are easily by-passed by tech savvy thieves. Learn more about some of the trends in auto fraud here.
So, as we’ve done for the last few years (check out 2019, 2020 and 2021), let’s take a look at the top 10 stolen vehicles in Ontario that have just been released.
