13: Simple Ignition Systems
As previously mentioned, Hondas are among the most stolen cars in America, especially the used models. An early 2000s Civic is perhaps one of the most easiest cars to steal. The simplistic ignition locking system makes the car a cinch to take. Which means the insurance premiums for these cars are much higher than a comparable vehicle from this time period (via Motor Biscuit).
The Civic was basically a simple car, especially the 1990s and 2000s model. You can’t go wrong with one of these in terms of reliability. But you also have to contend that because of its ignition system, the Civic is a car that can be stolen easily. You’ll want to invest in a timely alarm when it comes to buying one of these.
