Have you ever wondered why car insurance costs more depending on where you live? One of the heaviest weighted reasons for that is the number of cars that are stolen in that area each year. The FBI and insurance agencies collect that data on a yearly basis. Here is a list of the ten cities with the most stolen cars in 2011.

  • Fresno, Calif.
  • Modesto, Calif.
  • Bakersfield-Delano, Calif.
  • Spokane, Wash.
  • Yakima, Wash.
  • San Francisco/Oakland/Fremont, Calif.
  • Stockton, Calif.
  • Anderson, S.C.
  • Vallejo-Fairfield, Calif.
  • Visalia-Porterville, Calif.

California is a horrible spot to live if you want to keep your car. Considering that the top four spot have been occupied by the same metropolitan areas for a few years now and that cities in California comprise 12 of the top 20 spots on the FBI’s list, you can see why it costs so much to insure a car in good ole Cali.  However, you can also see that South Carolina is the only state east of the Mississippi with a city to make the list.  So if you need an auto loan in Anderson, SC, make sure to take the proper anti-theft precautions!
