Car thefts are down, unless you drive one of these

WASHINGTON -- The FBI says vehicle thefts are down in general, but certain cars are becoming even bigger targets.

Yahoo Autos has released a list of 2010's most stolen cars. For the first time since 2002, domestic cars are more stolen than their foreign counterparts.

Ford took three spots on the list with its F150, Explorer and Taurus lines. Dodge's Ram and Grand Caravan came in at 6 and 7, respectively.

"Thieves are after chrome, horsepower and Hemis," says Kim Hazelbaker, vice president of the Highway Data Loss Institute.

But the top spot stays with Honda. Its 1994 Accord ranked as the most stolen car. The car company has held the top spot for the last two years.
