LoJack Releases Fifth Annual Vehicle Theft Recovery Report

LoJack Corp. announced that law enforce­ment offi­cials recov­ered more than $121 mil­lion in stolen vehi­cles equipped with the LoJack Stolen Vehi­cle Recov­ery Sys­tem in 2013.

For the fifth year in a row, the Hon­da Accord was ranked as the most stolen and recov­ered vehi­cle equipped with a LoJack sys­tem. Cal­i­for­nia con­tin­ues to top the list as the state with the most LoJack sys­tem-equipped stolen and recov­ered vehi­cles.

In 2013, the old­est LoJack sys­tem-equipped stolen vehi­cle recov­ered was a 1963 Cadil­lac Con­vert­ible, while the most expen­sive LoJack sys­tem-equipped stolen vehi­cle recov­ered was a 2011 Porsche Panam­era worth $103,400.

The fol­low­ing were the top 10 most stolen and recov­ered LoJack sys­tem-equipped vehi­cle mod­els in 2013:

1. Hon­da Accord
2. Hon­da Civic
3. Toy­ota Cam­ry

6. Acu­ra Inte­gra

8. Ford F350

“Today’s thieves are high­ly skilled pro­fes­sion­als, and LoJack’s data reveals that stolen cars, trucks and SUVs equipped with the LoJack sys­tem were recov­ered 90+ per­cent of the time in 2013,” said Patrick Clan­cy, the Vice Pres­i­dent of Law Enforce­ment for LoJack Cor­po­ra­tion.

“The lat­est sta­tis­tics from the FBI indi­cate that near­ly half of vehi­cles stolen are not returned to the right­ful own­ers, result­ing in mil­lions of dol­lars in assets lost by vehi­cle own­ers. The LoJack sys­tem has proven to be a high­ly effec­tive tool to com­bat vehi­cle theft.”
