I wonder if "stolen Maxima" is related to insurance claims. If so, maybe the Maximas are not stolen, but rather their HID headlights vandalized - its a very common thing.

Eric, I read the article & it said even when the Maxima was "stolen" that in the end when what they were finding was that only the HID's had been taken!

As I suspected.....its claim amount rather than actual vehicles stolen. But then I guess claim amount is what determines premiums so it makes sense.

This is correct, it's related to the theft of the HID assemblies from the 2002 and 2003 Maxima's, not the theft of the entire car.

The article goes on to say that's also why the Escalade is on top of the list. Because of the expensive aftermarket wheels and tires that apparently just "move" from one escalade to another one.
