U.S. automakers are beating their foreign rivals again, though probably not in the way they'd want to. For the first time since 2002, car thieves preferred to target American models rather than foreign, Msnbc.com reports.

That is the result from tallying the National Insurance Crime Bureau's annual list of the most-stolen vehicles of 2010.

Nationally, the most frequently stolen car model was the 1994 Honda Accord -- the champ from 2009 and 2008 also.

Broken down by automaker, Ford had three spots in the top 10, Dodge two and Chevrolet one.

The report noted, though, that the top three spots on the list continued to be Japanese models. That trend has held since 2000. (点击MSNBC网站查看原文)
