If you own an older Honda Civic, you might want to avoid parking it in Langley.
According to the Langley RCMP, 12 Hondas have been stolen in the city over the course of two nights, and they say there’s been a steep rise in thefts of these cars over the past month.
Police say these vehicles are targeted because they’re easy to steal due to a lack of effective security features. The Honda Civic tops ICBC’s list of the most stolen vehicles in the province, particularly 1997 and 2000 model years, followed by ’91 and ’92 Honda Accords.
