The National Insurance Crime Bureau's (NICB's) "Hot Wheels" list of the top 10 most stolen cars in 2013 found the Honda Accord was the most stolen vehicle, but the report also found that a majority of the 53,000 stolen Accords were built in the 1990s. Cars that were eight years or older dominated the list of most stolen cars, and very few recent vehicles made the list. Moreover, the overall rate of auto theft has declined, and some contend that is tied to advancements in anti-theft technology, such as an immobilizer that prevents cars from starting unless the driver uses a key that is recognized by the computer network.
