Honda Civic Drivers: Take Extra Precautions

It has been a mind-boggling fact that a series of car theft has recorded a disturbing number of Honda Civic cars being stolen. Well I...I'm not sure if that is because of lack of security, or if it is because it's a Honda Civic. I mean, come on. It is a car that is bound to last. Yes, i am turning this catastrophic news into a light and witty feature on how lovely the Honda Civic is. But I also want to warn owners out there to take the necessary precautions to take care of your precious cars, no matter how old they are.

Here's the report: A 1996 Honda Accord was reported stolen June 23 from the 100 block of Sherris Way in Smithsburg and was recovered Wednesday in Smithsburg, stripped of its rims, tires and other parts, deputies said. A 1994 Honda Civic was reported stolen Wednesday from the 18000 block of Bloomfield Court in Hagerstown and also was recovered Wednesday in Smithsburg, about half a mile from the other recovered vehicle. It also was stripped of its rims and tires. Three other vehicles - a 1994 Honda Civic DelSol, a 1992 Honda Civic and a 1995 Acura---were reported stolen Wednesday from three different areas in Hagerstown.
