Here's a list of the most stolen cars in Hawaii last year
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Nationally, the Honda Accord took the top spot as the car that was most stolen in 2016, the National Insurance Crime Bureau reports.
But in Hawaii, it's actually the Honda Civic that's most at risk.
More specifically, the 2000 model of the Civic was Hawaii's most stolen vehicle last year.
The 1994 Honda Accord took the no. 2 spot, while 2006 models of full-size Ford pickups rounded out the top three in the islands.
The bureau releases the list annually, and it's based on information submitted to the National Crime Information Center.
Officials note while Honda Accords and Civics dominate the national and state lists, the models most at risk are older and pre-date "smart key" technology.
"Technology is working, but complacency can defeat it," the bureau said, in a news release. "While thefts are down dramatically since their all-time high in 1992, thousands of vehicles continue to be stolen each year because owners leave their keys or fobs in the vehicles and that invites theft."
Here's the full list of most stolen vehicles in Hawaii last year:
|3||Ford Pickup (Full Size)||2006|
|7||Ford Pickup (Small Size)||1997|
