Top 10 Stolen Cars in Canada 2011

The most stolen car in Canada is the 2009 Toyota Venza. That's according to a list put out by the Insurance Bureau of Canada. Every year this list comes out with very little in the way of surprises. But now, it seems that thieves' tastes have been changing.

Here's the list.
  1. 2009 Toyota Venza 4-door
  2. 1999 Honda Civic SiR 2-door
  3. 2000 Honda Civic SiR 2-door
  4. 2006 Ford F350 Pickup Truck 4WD
  5. 2002 Cadillac Escalade EXT 4-door AWD
  6. 2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SS 4-door 4WD
  7. 2007 Ford F350 Pickup Truck 4WD
  8. 2001 Pontiac Aztek 4-door AWD
  9. 1998 Acura Integra 2-door
  10. 1999 Acura Integra 2-door
Most of the cars are unsurprising. The Honda Civic SiR has been at the top of the list for the past 6 years, but it's the Venza and Aztek that are really interesting.

The Venza is a nice Crossover so I can understand it being desirable. However, it doesn't have the street cred that all of the others on the list have. That is, except for the Aztek, which has no street cred at all. It's a car nobody wants to remember, despite the fact it spawned cars like the Venza.

Perhaps there are thieves that are trying to rid the world of ugly cars. Stealing these Asteks and joyriding them to their final death. Or, perhaps they want a piece of history.
