I am not saying this is a list of cars you should avoid if you’re looking to get a new one, but I am saying if you do buy one of these cars, maybe you should also invest in a good alarm system… 

More than 32,000 vehicles so far have been reported stolen last year in Colorado, according to the Colorado Auto Theft Prevention Authority – Metropolitan Auto Theft Task Force (C-MATT). Passenger cars (10,367) and SUVs (9,817) were the types of vehicles most stolen last year, followed by pickup trucks (6,562) and motorcycles (1,763).

Here are the top 10 makes and models of vehicles stolen the most in Colorado in 2023:

  1. Hyundai Elantra (1,324)
  2. Chevrolet Silverado (1,281)
  3. Hyundai Sonata (1,035)
  4. Ford F-150 (1,013)
  5. Kia Sportage (974)
  6. Ford F-250 (808)
  7. Kia Optima (783)
  8. Hyundai Tucson (750)
  9. Honda Civic (685)
  10. Kia Soul (648)

C-MATT said the highest risk for having your vehicle stolen is to leave the vehicle unlocked or to leave the keys in the vehicle. Tips to protect your vehicle from theft include never leaving your car running unattended, always keeping car doors locked when driving or parked, and always parking in a well-lit area.
