Albany - Some vehicles are more appealing to car thieves. Last year's most stolen car was a 1995 Saturn LS, followed by mid 1990 models of the Acura Integra. A Top 25 list of "Most Stolen Cars" was complied by a company that tracks insurance claims. Mid 90's models of the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Civic, and Chevrolet Tahoe are also on the list.

The report suggests some cars are stolen for the value of their parts. Auto makers such as Honda and Toyota use the same parts for several years, so the stolen parts can be used on various models.
