According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), approximately 200,000 stolen vehicles were illegally exported to foreign countries in 1999. Most cars are taken out of the USA via port or border cities. See my web pages on the Top 25 Stolen Cars in the US. It is also helpful to know where cars are more likely to be stolen. See my web pages on Auto Theft Facts for more information on understanding and preventing auto theft. Below is a list of the top 10 port or border cities used to illegally export stolen vehicles:
