Car Theft in malaysia   Am trying to locate information on the top 10 'most wanted' cars by car thieves as of today. I am looking for a new car and am concerned that my new car may be one of those in the hit list. Anyone can share where I can get this information? I did a search on google on "Car theft rate in malaysia" but the info is very old. Thanks.

RE:Car Theft in malaysia   KUALA LUMPUR, May 13 (Bernama) -- Car thefts continue to be a major challenge for the general insurance industry which incurred almost RM568 million in motor insurance claims in 2003, up by 19 percent over the previous year, according to Persatuan Insuran Am Malaysia (PIAM), Thursday. A total of 19,906 cases, including 7,303 private cars were reported stolen to insurance companies last year. Claims for private cars alone amounted to RM489 million, an increase of 17.3 percent over 2002. Proton Wira was the most popular target for car thieves last year with 1,092 cases followed by Toyota Unser (802), Perodua Kancil (484), Proton Waja (478), Proton Iswara (318) while Proton Perdana and Toyota Harrier (271 each). The multi-purpose Toyota Unser was the surprise number one victim in the non-national vehicle segment last year, registering a 764 percent increase last year compared with only 105 units reported stolen in 2002.

RE:Car Theft in malaysia   The highest will usually be Proton Wira, Iswara. Personally, I don't think the figures will be very accurate for your decision. A percentage will be much better. For example: Car A has 50000 on the road. 500 were stolen. =1% Car B has 500 on the road. 50 were stolen. =10%
