22: High Theft Rates
Honda owners love their vehicles, especially the Civic. But there is an underlying problem with the Civic and that’s the fact that it gets stolen time and time again. The Civic was for a long time one of the most stolen cars in America. The ease of theft only decreased the value of the car for a long time and raised insurance rates (via Pickers Plan).
Nowadays, anti-theft systems seem to have deterred theft a little bit, but not a lot. The Civic is still a stolen car, as are its replacement parts. There is no denying that car thefts can decrease the value of a vehicle. Civic owners tend to brush this fact off as they tout the positives of the car.
