If you think the car most often stolen in Illinois is something exotic, think again.

At first glance, you’d think Lamborghini or Porshe would be on the list because those cars are rad and if you were a thief wouldn’t you?

New data from nicb.org reveals it’s not even close to those souped up rides.

I’m not even sure how it’s possible, but 2003 Dodge Caravan’s are the vehicles stolen most often in Illinois.

Is it safe to assume most car thieves have families with many mouths to feed? That’s the only way to explain how Dodge Caravan’s get stolen so much.

What’s a typical Dodge Caravan car thief’s day like?

Here’s my guess…, make some coffee, steal a Caravan, pick up groceries, drop the kids off at soccer practice all while preparing dinner because family is coming over?

They wake up, make a cup of coffee, steal a Caravan, pick up groceries, drop the kids off at soccer practice all while preparing a huge family dinner.

Finally, after a crazy hectic day is over and the kids are asleep, I think they’d wind down with a nice cup of chamomile tea, while cuddling up to their favorite book, Eat Pray Love.

Anyway, here’s the entire the list.

  1. 2003 Dodge Caravan
  2. 2006 Chevrolet Impala
  3. 2000 Honda Civic
  4. 2016 Toyota Camry
  5. 2013 Chevrolet Malibu
  6. 2015 Nissan Altima
  7. 1997 Honda Accord
  8. 2005 Full Size Chevrolet Pickup
  9. 2015 Jeep Cherokee/Grand Cherokee
  10. 2006 Full Size Ford Pickup

As you can see, this is the kind of list that a courteous car thief would use. A 1997 Honda Accord? Okay.
