Not surprising at all. Popular vehicles are always good theft items. The resale for the used parts is far more than the whole car.

so long as peoploe are willng to save a few $$ and not question where the part came from - auto thieves will continue to supply them.

In addition, you also have to remember that there are MORE popular vehicles out there compared to less popular ones, obviously. So while more of the popular vehicles are stolen, it's probably about the same percentage of the whole when compared the theft statistics of a less popular vehicle. :wink:

It's even funnier that people are stealing minivans!
Actually, one of the reasons cited for this is the fact that minivans (especially Chrysler's) are ubiquitous and supposedly don't attract the attention of other drivers or law enforcement, compared to flashier vehicles. Additionally, there's lots of space for transporting stolen goods. That's what I've heard anyway.
Chrysler minivans have been among the most stolen vehicles in the Washington DC and Baltimore areas for a number of years- and my parents who live in Maryland know this all to well- their Dodge Caravan was stolen last year and never recovered. :nervous:
