    Thanks for reply.

    Please see my post, and several answers, on 12/25 re my quest on the
    Accord "Micro Chip" key.

    Am trying to understand why, if it's so effective, the Accords are still
    near the top of the stolen car lists ? Especially if it's been in use since
    1998 ?

    Any thoughts on ?

    There have been many replys to this question. The answer in most of them
    is that it is the older accords that are still on the list.

  5. What lists are you seeing? Do you have any links?

    Do any of the lists YOU'RE seeing actually list the years for which
    they've collected the data?

    Find lists that collect data SINCE 1998, and you'll find that the Accord
    is no longer anywhere near the top.

    You've been told this, but somehow you don't want to believe it.

    No, I don't have any links. I'm just passing on what is being said in
    this group.

    The list I saw, and don't remember where I saw it, showed that the
    stolen Accords were earlier models, like generation 3 and 4, not
    current models.

    That's exactly right. I was very interested in these details as well since
    I owned 1998 Accord. All subsequent "top stolen" car type lists that did
    happen to have year information showed late 80's and early 90's Accords as
    most stolen. Camry is the same.

    Aside from simple joy rides, vehicle theft happens for spare parts, which
    becomes sparse and hard to find for old cars, thus salvaging old parts
    becomes fairly profitable.

    It'd be interesting to see what happens to the sixth generation Accords in
    10 years.
