“It’s clear the Commodore is a favourite with thieves, but Toyota is also a popular steal with their Landcruiser, Hilux, Corolla and Camry rounding out our top five most stolen car models.
“This should act as a warning to Queensland drivers to ensure vehicle security is front of mind and that they’re switched on to the tactics of car thieves no matter the brand or value of their car,” Ms Ross said.
The RACQ has a few tips to motorists to make sure their car stays safe, including keeping your keys on you whenever possible, being vigilant in locking car windows, and always try and park you car in a garage or somewhere well-lit and well-populated.
