Default Q50 3rd Most Stolen New Car - New Report shows

Here are the top 20 vehicles for whole-vehicle theft insurance claim frequency (model years 2016-18)
  1. Dodge Charger HEMI
  2. Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat
  3. Infiniti Q50 4-door
A ranking released Thursday of new cars, trucks and SUVs that have the highest rate of whole-vehicle insurance claims lists the Dodge Charger HEMI and the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat at the top, according to the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI).

Looks like Thieves are looking for power under the hood now a days for new cars. Taking advantage of the Infiniti program that allows you to turn on your car from the app might help in this situation as it also tells you exactly where your car is at any given moment. Thieves can of course disconnect the battery but I wonder if the system will "remember" the last point the vehicle was in before battery was disconnected unless it only checks the location once you request it on the app.


A thieves way around this, if they do it clean is to have some sort of enclosed trailer somewhat nearby. Within 30 mins of car. Drive to enclosed trailer. Disconnect battery and take it somewhere far away and remove engine. Stealing and taking to trailer could be done before an owner is aware it happened.






Sort of reminds me of this post I saw on the New Jersey subreddit. (The OP of the post, who claims those cars belong to him seems clueless on lots of things. Just a strange all together).

Maybe for cars with a bit of power, but typically Car thieves target models that are very common and sell in high volume rather than luxury cars.
Honda's and Toyota are often the top cars on those lists simply because there are so many on the road.

My buddy had his classic split window vette advertised in Hemmings. Got stolen on the test drive. The guy had him get out to look for a "noise". Then bolted. FBI recovered it almost a year later in a container headed to Japan.
It was an international car theft ring.
MO was a tractor trailer parked near by ready with ramps down.
He got it back but was damaged by them driving it to hard. He repaired it and sold it eventually before he was killed on a test drive of a customers car by a drunk driver.

If I'm going to steal a car, a Q50 is in my bottom ten choices.

2018 Iridium Blue, AWD, Q50 Red Sport w/ Sensory and ProACTIVE packages and an illuminated grille emblem that is no longer anything special as my neighbor's lowly Chevy truck has one too.

Itís the third most because itís one of the easiest to steal. You can go to a junk yard get a control module, swap it out and then your key not the owners will work. I have friends in law enforcement. They told me itís extremely easy to steal hence me getting a old school club type anti theft device. Itís sad how easy it is. Take any Nissan control module under the steer column, swap it and now your key works instead of the original. Get a club boys especially if you park outside or in an apartment complex. If anyone wants more details Iíll call my auto theft detective buddy. Not Cool Infiniti!
