Top 10 Most Stolen Cars In U.S 2011

(Honda Accord 1994)
      1.1994 Honda Accord
      2.1998 Honda Civic
      3.2006 Ford Pickup (Full Size)
      4.1991 Toyota Camry
      5.2000 Dodge Caravan
      6.1994 Acura Integra
      7.1999 Chevrolet Pickup (Full Size)
      8.2004 Dodge Pickup (Full Size)
      9.2002 Ford Explorer
      10.1994 Nissan Sentra

     The singling out of the 1994 Honda Accord as the most-stolen car in the United States last year isn’t something new. The 1994 Accord  again tops the list, making this it's fourth consecutive appearance.The 1994 Accord’s lack of security features and its popularity as the main reasons why the car is so frequently stolen.
     Number two on the list is also a Honda, the 1998 Honda Civic. At No. three is the 2006 Ford F-150 pickup, which is a truck (ranked so high on the most-stolen list) .Two other full-size pickups, the 1999 Chevrolet pickup and the 2004 Dodge pickup, came in at position number seven and eight, respectively. The 2002 Ford Explorer SUV is ranked ninth.
     Fourth place belongs to the 1991 Toyota Camry, another  best-selling sedan. Two other sedans, the 1994 Acura Integra and the 1994 Nissan Sentra, ranked in sixth and 10th place. The Dodge Caravan, the only minivan on the list, was the fifth most-stolen vehicle last year across the nation.

Aston Martin Vanquish


Vanquish production was ceased in 2007 and while its DBS replacement was more reliable, it never    recaptured the Vanquish's glamour quotient. Aston Martin hopes the new Vanquish will generate and bring back the lost glamour. The Vanquish's new interior is amazing, and the main controls on the centre console are now touch sensitive. Fit and finish is classic, although it seems that almost everything really stylish inside this car is a rather costly option. Touch-sensitive glass buttons vibrate when your finger makes contact, while the new Garmin sat-navigation and properly integrated infotainment system are light years ahead of the DBS with its clunky  navigation set-up and fussy stereo controls. . No-one  can match Aston for interior design and ambience, though the One-77 style ‘quartic' steering wheel and frowning air vents are both an acquired. But the ZF six-speed auto is not as efficient compared to the ultra-fast systems fitted by  McLaren orFerrari. The coachwork is sleek and stretched, although all modern Astons look quite similar.
The Vanquish borrows styling from the One-77 supercar. It also gets a pedestrian impact-friendly front, LED rear lamps and a lovely, seamless transition from the rear arches into the roof. A slightly more compact grille is surrounded by a flowing, bare carbon front splitter, bonnet vents and LED running lights, while protruding side strakes extend down the sides. At the rear you’ll find LED tail-lamps inspired by the One-77  and an integrated spoiler that looks more like a sculpture than an aerodynamic aid.

Originally the 5.9-litre V12 was based on two Ford Mondeo V6s, but Aston has reworked on it . There is a 9% increase in power from the DBS to 565bhp and the car has a top speed of 183mph, 0-62 mph in 4.1sec. The rich, multi-layered V12 exhaust note is superb especially when you hit the Sport button on the steering wheel. New launch control also allows you to experience the full 565bhp. Simply push the button marked L/C and move your foot from the brake to full throttle and, after a moment’s pause, the car roars off, with minimum wheel spin and maximum acceleration. A quicker steering ratio means the Vanquish feels more alert, more of the time, while the wheel weights up beautifully as you load up the outside wheel in corners. The most noticeable dynamic change, though, comes from the three-stage adaptive dampers, which give the car a broader character than before. Normal mode is surprisingly supple, rounding off sharp jolts like speed bumps with confidence. Sport mode noticeably firms things up and works well when you’re darting down a smooth country road. Track mode is best left for just that – it’s too firm for normal roads.  Despite the full carbon fibre skin, plus carbon on parts of the chassis, the Vanquish only weighs 1kg less than the DBS. Any savings are cancelled out by extras like the new infotainment system and bigger carbon-ceramic brakes. The new Vanquish is priced at  £189,995 which is quite expensive for an Aston.

2. The windscreen wipers which are an important component of every car were introduced by a woman.
3. The most crowded roads in Europe can be found in the country of Luxembourg with 570 cars per 1000 people.

5 Amazing Car Security Systems

OnStar may have the strongest advertising presence of any car security solution on the market. GM has successfully telegraphed the unique benefits of OnStar in its commercial campaigns: Much like the advertisements for Broadview Home Security, which feature its operators standing by to assist homeowners who've been burglarized, OnStar ads commonly depict helpful operators contacting drivers after an accident. But how does OnStar work, exactly?
OnStar systems operate over a digital cellular network in the United States, and its customers can contact the service 24 hours a day with the push of a button in their cars. Lost on some country back road? Connect with an advisor, and he or she will give you turn-by-turn directions to get you home. That's one element of OnStar's "three-button system" for communication. With an accompanying plan or pre-paid package of minutes, OnStar also provides hands-free calling with the push of the second button. The third button places an emergency call directly to an OnStar "Advisor."
In a real emergency, such as a car crash, air bag sensors or other sensors built into an OnStar-equipped vehicle can automatically alert an operator to the condition and location of a vehicle, which OnStar then uses to direct emergency responders. But that's an awful lot about emergencies; when it comes to plain old security, OnStar's pretty impressive, too. OnStar can unlock your car if you lose your keys or honk your horn if you're lost in the vast sea of a parking deck; the system tracks stolen cars via GPS, and operators can block the ignition of newer models and remotely slow them down during high-speed chases.
OnStar is far more than just a security system -- it's more of a comprehensive service system, and its mobile apps for iPhone and Android make features like remote door unlocking even easier. Comprehensive comes with a cost, of course -- in OnStar's case, that means $199 a year for a basic "Safe & Sound" plan or $299 a year for the "Directions & Connections" plan, which adds in turn-by-turn navigation.

LoJack is one of the most famous examples of car security that uses radio tracking to hunt down and recover stolen vehicles. Most tracking devices share the same principal: Small transceivers are hidden somewhere inside the car and can be tracked by an outside source tuned to the proper frequency. Because GPS receivers require line-of-sight to an orbiting satellite to acquire a positioning fix, systems like the LoJack have the advantage of tracking cars in some places GPS will fail.
Due to close ties with law enforcement organizations, LoJack homing devices actually show up in police computer systems. LoJack units are tied to a car's unique Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), so when a car is reported stolen and the VIN is entered into the state police crime computer, that automatically triggers the LoJack Unit in the vehicle [source: Lojack].
And LoJack stands by its product with a 24-hour recovery guarantee. Basically, if your car is stolen and can't be found within 24 hours, you get your money back -- for the LoJack, anyway [source:Lojack]. The downside to LoJack's police partnership is that the recovery system is only good in certain countries in the United States -- and it's expensive. The basic version of LoJack costs $695, but owning one could potentially save you up to 35 percent on automobile insurance [source:Lojack].

Commando FM-870
Did your car come with a keychain pager, a small device that lets you lock or unlock your car doors from afar? They're a basic accessory for new cars and provide convenient ways to make sure your doors are always locked. The Commando FM-870 is a souped-up keychain pager. It can unlock car doors without a key and start the engine remotely from 2,500 feet (762 meters) away. The Commando includes a small device with an LCD display that monitors doors and trunks open/closed and can detect hard impacts to your vehicle [source:Commando].
Forced entry or engine startup will trigger an alert to the Command FM-870's LCD display. In addition to its remote start and keyless entry functions, the Commando component that's installed in the vehicle also includes a car alarm that can be programmed to trigger based on unauthorized vehicle access. The multi-function Commando FM-870 sells for $169.99 on Commando's Web site. The installation process for the Commando requires some manual wiring so make sure you or someone you know is capable of installing it before making a purchase.While the Commando FM-870's LCD-equipped remote helps it stand out from the crowd, it's far from the only multi-function security system on the market. 
CobraTrak 5
Cobra's ConraTrak 5 takes the benefits of several disparate Cobra security systems and bundles them together into one powerful system, which earned it a Category 5 placement in the Thatcham system, which means it must effectively help you recover the vehicle if it's stolen [source: Thatcham]. That means the CobraTrak 5 system, which Cobra calls one of its "top of range systems," features vehicle tracking that works in a very unique way.

An automatic driver recognition (ADR) system forms a link between your car and a card you carry on your person. If the card is outside the car, the ADR system is armed and instantly alerts Cobra's operating center if the car is moved. If a thief somehow makes off with your keys but doesn't grab the ADR card, they're toast: The ADR system will be aware that the card isn't in the vehicle with the car thief. Cobra can also initiate remote engine immobilization. Once a stolen car has been shut off, it won't turn on again. Coupled with GPS tracking, remote engine immobilization increases the chances that police will be able to find and recover a stolen vehicle [source:Cobra].
This is a high-end, pricey security system for car owners who live in Europe. Cobra charges £649 ($1,050) for the system, plus £199 ($322) for an annual monitoring fee [source:Cobra]. If that sounds too rich for your blood, check out our next form of car security. It may not come with GPS tracking or remote engine immobilization, but it will make it a whole lot harder for a carjacker to sell your stolen vehicle to an underground chop shop.

Nissan Vision 2015
The goal of Nissan's Vision 2015 project is to develop new car concepts and technologies through the year 2015. Some of those new technologies are aimed at reducing the deaths and injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents. One of Nissan's Vision 2015 concept cars embodies that goal to the fullest, integrating advanced technology into a car to prevent drunk driving accidents -- and drunk driving, period [].
Sensors in the car's seat and gearshift can detect alcohol through the driver's perspiration and prevent the vehicle from being driven. Additionally, a camera watches the driver's eyes. If it detects signs of drowsiness or drunkenness, the car issues a voice alert to the driver and tightens the seat belt as a wake-up call []. The car can even detect suspicious driving activity that could indicate someone falling asleep at the wheel -- drift out of the lane and the car may give you the same alert and seat belt tuck [].
While its futuristic concept car may not be hitting the highways just yet, Nissan's already incorporated a drunk driving message into its current navigation systems []. In another decade, Nissan's vision may be an everyday reality, and car security systems will be as good at keeping us safe from ourselves as they are preventing outside threats.
