Thieves Targeting Domestic Vehicles

DETROIT (WWJ) – For the first time in nearly a decade, thieves are stealing more American vehicles than foreign ones.

Favorite car theft targets in Michigan are the 2000 Dodge Caravan, followed by the 99 Ford Taurus and the 2000 Dodge Intrepid. July and August are the most popular months to have your vehicle stolen.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau says overall, car thefts dropped more than seven percent in 2010 compared to the year before.
