Honda's Accord and Civic continue to top the list of most stolen vehicles in the U.S., even as auto thefts have fallen significantly from their peak in the early 1990s following the wider adoption of engine immobolizers.

Total thefts reported by law enforcement fell 3.2 percent in 2013 to below 700,000, the National Insurance Crime Bureau reported today. During the peak year for vehicle thefts in 1991, 1.66 million vehicles were reported stolen.

"The drop in thefts is good news for all of us," said Joe Wehrle, NICB's  president and CEO. "But it still amounts to a vehicle being stolen every 45 seconds and losses of over $4 billion a year."

The NICB is one of two insurance industry trade groups that tracks and reports vehicle thefts. The Highway Loss Data Institute only lists vehicles with theft coverage.

The most stolen vehicles during 2013 were as follows with theft numbers in parentheses:

  1. Honda Accord (53,995)
  2. Honda Civic (45,001)
  3. Chevrolet Silverado (27,809)
  4. Ford F-150 (26,494)
  5. Toyota Camry (14,420)
  6. Dodge full-size pickup (11,347)
  7. Dodge Caravan (10,911)
  8. Jeep Cherokee/Grand Cherokee (9,272)
  9. Toyota Corolla (9,010)
  10. Nissan Altima (8,892)

Here are the top 10 most stolen 2013 model-year vehicles:

  1. Nissan Altima (810)
  2. Ford Fusion (793)
  3. Ford F-150 (775)
  4. Toyota Corolla (669)
