In LoJack's annual report of the vehicles most stolen, then recovered, the Honda Accord topped the list for 2010. The Honda Civic got silver, and the Toyota Camry came in with a bronze. The Cadillac Escalade, the most stolen car in the U.S., hits the list in fifth place.

LoJack breaks down its stats further, showing that the 2000 Honda Civic is the most stolen and recovered car, and 1994 through 1997 Accords hold the next four positions. For model years less than 5 years old, the 2007 Camry tops the list, followed by the 2009 Camry, then the 2006 Chevy Silverado.

These stats only cover LoJack-equipped vehicles that have been recovered, which amounts to 10,649 for 2010.

Here is LoJack's top-10 list:

  1. Honda Accord
  2. Honda Civic
  3. Toyota Camry
  4. Acura Integra
  5. Cadillac Escalade
  6. Toyota Corolla
  7. Dodge Ram Pickup
  8. Nissan Altima
  9. Nissan Maxima
  10. Chevrolet Tahoe

Besides LoJack, Onstar offers a stolen vehicle recovery service, so it is not surprising to see a lack of GM vehicles on this list. Although the 2007 Cadillac Escalade still made the top 5 by model year.
