Top 10 Stolen Cars in PA*
Most stolen cars are older, common models. These car parts are harder to find, which makes them more expensive—and more lucrative for thieves to find, steal, and sell. A car worth $3,000 is often worth $5,000 to a chop shop.
What to do if your car is stolen
- Call your local police department. Confirm your car has not been towed or impounded.
- Gather your car's VIN (vehicle identification number), make, model, color, any distinguishing marks or features, any pictures you may have of your car, and your insurance information.
- Report your car stolen to your police department, insurance company, and financing/leasing company.
