If you're rolling around in a 2000 Dodge Caravan, not only are you likely a diaper and soccer ball-toting mom or pop, the Ohio Insurance Institute says you're also the No. 1 prime target for a car thief.
For the third year in a row, the minivan was named the most-stolen vehicle in the Buckeye State, proving once again that even car thieves in Ohio have poor taste.
You're not much safer in a 1994 Honda Accord, a perennial favorite to be snatched, nor a 1994 Chevy truck. Nowhere on the list, however, is our 2000 Saturn with no AC, turn signals, or horn, so we're feeling pretty safe this morning. Below, a full list of the top ten most-stolen makes and models curated by the OII for both 2010 and 2009, via NewsNet5.
