Transcript for List of Top Cars Stolen by Car Thieves
And tonight, a surprising headline that may change the way you think about your car parked in the driveway. We have a new ranking of cars targeted by thieves across the country. And the top of the list? Not a flashy sports car, but your family car. Why? ABC's Mara schiavocampo shows us. Reporter: In the movies and on TV -- Work your magic, baby. Reporter: It's always cool cars that are gone in 60 seconds. Woo! Reporter: But in real life, thief favorites are not smoking hot. The most stolen cars of last year? The Honda accord, Honda civic, Ford f-150 and Toyota camry. Preferably from the '90s. Why? Older models often don't have the same security features newer luxury models do. Toyota over here, Nissan truck up here. Reporter: Former car chief Steve fuller showed ABC's "20/20" just how it's done. Something as small as a cracked window making his job much easier. I can get out of its track by rocking it back and forth. Pull just hard enough to get my arm down in there, reach in and unlock it. Reporter: Just what you need to know to make sure guys like Steve don't drive off in your ride? Well, experts say the age-old advice is still the best. Park in a well-lit, busy area. Fully lock all doors, windows and sunroofs and forgoodness sake, don't leave your keeps in the car, putting the brakes on sheaves. Mara schiavocampo, ABC news, new York.
