DENVER -- According to Denver police, the following 10 cars were the top models for thieves in 2013.
10. Jeep Wrangler
9. Ford F-150
8. Acura Integra
7. Subaru Impreza
6. Honda Motorcycle
5. Toyota Camry
4. Jeep Grand Cherokee
3. Jeep Cherokee
2. Honda Civic
1. Honda Accord
After hearing that his Jeep Wrangler made the top ten list, Jacob Hinkle was a little bummed.
"I think it's not very good for me," Hinkle said.
Becca Dickman owns a Jeep Cherokee. In her case, it's not good for her husband.
"I hate this thing, but my husband loves it," Becca said. "So we keep it around."
With a young family, Becca says she's now thinking about the best ways to keep from becoming the next victim.
"We definitely park it in the driveway, and always lock it every day," she said. "Other than that we'd probably just get a car alarm."
According to Denver Police investing in alarm could be a good investment, especially for people who own older models of the cars on the list.
"Seeing it firsthand, you know that those vehicles are basically drive train first, protection second," said Tyson Kohlhoff, who sells and installs car alarms for Car Toys in Denver.
Kohlhoff says the cars on the list are generally the easiest for him to work on, and in turn, easier targets for thieves.
"The more intricate the system is, you notice that it's more protected," Kohlhoff said.
That's not something you need to tell Becca.
"I know I've been locked out of this car a few times and it hasn't been very hard to get into myself," she said, with a laugh.
Even so, Police say locked doors could have prevented many of the theft cases that make up the top ten list. Though it is common sense advice, it's worth repeating, especially to a friend.
"(My friend) was asking if I should lock the doors," Hinkle said. "Which I'm going to do right after this (interview)."
