What kind of car do you drive? Could it be the most commonly stolen car on the road?

If you drive a Honda Accord, then yes, it is.

LoJack, a company that sells vehicle tracking devices, released their list last week of the top ten most stolen and recovered cars of 2013, all equipped with a LoJack device.

The Honda Accord topped the list for the fifth year in a row, followed by:

2. Honda Civic

3. Toyota Camry

4. Toyota Corolla

5. Chevrolet Silverado

6. Acura Integra

7. Cadillac Escalade

8. Ford F-350

9. Nissan Altima

10. Chevrolet Tahoe

Many of these are not surprises, since they are some of the best selling cars on the road. But the study also included some fun facts about the stolen cars.

The oldest car stolen and recovered in 2013 was a 1963 Cadillac Convertible. The most expensive was a 2011 Porsche Panamera, worth $103,400.

And apparently color played into it to. Black was the most popular color for recovered vehicles, while the least common color was turquoise.

But where did all of these robberies take place? LoJack also listed which U.S. states were the scenes of the crime.

Luckily, Oregon didn't make the list. But Washington ranked 10th in the country. California came in first place.

So if you don't want your car to disappear from your driveway, don't buy a black Honda Accord and move to California.
