March 22, 2012
The Camry is popular with consumers, so it's not surprising that the Camry is also popular with thieves.
LoJack Corporation recently released its third annual Vehicle Theft Recovery Report. The company makes a vehicle recovery system that was instrumental in the recovery of some 10,261 stolen vehicles in 2011; the report's findings are based on statistics garnered from these recoveries. (By the way, according to LoJack, its recovery success rate is 92 percent).
The Camry was the most stolen and recovered 2011 model last year, according to LoJack. The Camry also made a couple of appearances on the list of most stolen and recovered models that are five years old and newer, with the 2007 Camry in the number one spot and the 2009 Camry coming in at number four. Overall, the most stolen and recovered model last year was the Honda Accord, with the Camry in second place.
Do you consider statistics like this when deciding which vehicle to purchase?
