It doesn't take long for you to find a personal story on the internet about the wheels of a Honda Fit being stripped from the car.
Take it from Dave Thomas, who owned a 2015 Honda Fit for eight days, only to find one of his wheels taken off the car, posted his own personal account on cars.com. "The car was parked on a residential street in a north side neighborhood of Chicago when it was targeted around midnight. Photo Editor Evan Sears heard noises and noticed a suspicious car from his window; when he opened his front door to look outside the perpetrators took off. They managed to take just one wheel, but left the Fit on blocks."
Thieves target the wheels on Honda Fits to use for low-riders. Instead of going to the store, people can buy the wheels on the black market for cheap.
According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, Honda Accord and the Honda Civic are the two most stolen vehicles in the nation as well as in New York State. Honda Fit does not make the top 10.
