Car theft 2021 – Do you have a Toyota RAV4? Then sleep with one eye open!

The number of car thefts has been declining for years. In 2017, 8257 passenger vehicles were stolen, in 2021 ‘only’ 5404, according to figures from the National Vehicle Crime Information Center. If you are the victim of theft, the chance that your car will be found by the police is 45 percent. That percentage is slowly increasing. In 2017 it was 40 percent.
