The list features a little of everything, cars, small trucks, big trucks and Honda makes the list three times.

Even if your car isn't mentioned on this list, it's always best to do anything you can to make sure your car is safe. A few quick tips is to keep valuables hidden or not in your car at all, keep it in a garage if you can. If it's on the street, make sure you can see it. Get a sticker saying you have an alarm (even if you don't) and I've heard that if you can drive stick, do it! Most of today's car thieves can't drive manual. Something to consider.
