Why wast your time stealing a Saturn?

Besides, you'll never be able to outrun the cop chasing you! Atleast not if he's driving an Intrepid.

They changed the way they make those rankings. It used to be ranked in order of total number of cars stolen, now it's ranked in percentage of registered cars. If a manufacturer only made 10 of a particular model and 5 of them were stolen, it'd be at the top of the list. I'm no statistician, so I don't know how accurate that list is now.

Used parts market. Big money to be made selling air bags and other parts on the black market.

AS long as they are stealing mostly foregin cars who cares more power to them.
Why are americans not supporting american car dealers, I know we build our cars in other country's and use foreign parts and engines. BUT if americans did not buy cars from our enemies and we said thet we want all american products in our cars this, could happen. No matter what, I will never buy a rice burner.

How about a 'bacon burner'??

Do you do know that your Intrepid was made in Canada don't you?

Or would that be a 'Beer Burner'?

My car will probably be on there in a decade or so..... when parts for it are harder to come by.

Fortunately, I won't own it 10 years from now.
