10 cars least likely to be stolen in Canada
Posted Jan 26th 2012 11:01AM
Recently, we learned that owning one of the ugliest cars ever manufactured is no guarantee that your ride will remain yours forever. That news caused Pontiac Aztec owners across the country to beef up security, but what else can one do to keep one's car where it belongs beyond putting an extra lock on the travel tent? If the new list from the Insurance Bureau of Canada is any indication, all you need to do is drive the automotive equivalent of a clothes dryer. Or, you could opt for an oh so opulent 2001 Chrysler 300M.
There isn't really any great surprises on this list, they are all cars that just vanish into the automotive landscape. It seems the key to making sure your car remains yours is to drive something anonymous.
Check out the list and a quick video after the jump.

- Always roll up your windows, close your sunroof, and lock up when leaving your vehicle.
- Put the key in your pocket or purse as soon as you lock up and never leave keys in your vehicle or in the ignition.
- Do not leave valuable items like laptops, sports equipment or purchases in clear view; place them somewhere out of sight.
- Make sure to park in a well lit, busy area.
- Get your car parts marked (etched). This could make your car a less attractive target to thieves looking to resell parts.
- If you park in your own private garage, lock both the garage and your car.
