Two older Honda sedan models were the most stolen cars in Pennsylvania in 2015, according to an annual report.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau's (NICB) "Hot Wheels" report, released Monday, uses data submitted by law enforcement to determine what vehicles were jacked the most in all 50 states.

The report breaks down the list by make, model and model year. Here are the top 10 most stolen cars in Pennsylvania last year:

1. Honda Accord 1997 — 544 thefts 

2. Honda Civic 1998 — 539 thefts

3. Ford Pick-Up (Full Size) 2006 — 303 thefts

4. Toyota Camry 2014 — 269 thefts

5. Nissan Altima 2015 — 261 thefts

6. Chevrolet Impala 2006 — 224 thefts

7. Toyota Corolla 2014 — 210 thefts

8. Chevrolet Pick-Up (Full Size) 2003 — 203 thefts

9. Jeep Cherokee/Grand Cherokee 1999 — 188 thefts

10. Chevrolet Malibu 2015 — 159 thefts

Although older models tend to dominate the lists in all states, including Pennsylvania, NICB President and CEO Joe Wehrle said in a press release that the number of late models with anti-theft protection that made the rankings shows that "technology isn’t foolproof."

“Criminals are doing their best to defeat anti-theft technology through hacking and other means while, at the same time, manufacturers and others are working to improve security," Wehrle said.
