If you own a Cadillac Escalade (http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac/escalade/), you better keep one eye on it at all times. According to the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI), the Escalade is still the apple of a car thief's eye. The large luxury SUV is six times more likely to be plucked away by thieves than average. If you happen to have the truck-like EXT Escalade, you're in even worse shape since 14 out of every 1,000 vehicles insured wind up with a theft claim.

On the flipside, if you're the proud owner of an Audi A6 (http://www.autoblog.com/audi/a6/) then you can rest easy. Car thieves aren't hunting for your particular mid-size luxury sedan. Want to know what vehicles round out the top and bottom ten from the perspective of a car thief? Well, at least according to the HLDI.

Interestingly, General Motors decided to respond to the HLDI's findings, and you can find the press release from Cadillac after the break as well.Continue reading Cadillac Escalade still thieves' favorite target (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/08/25/cadillac-escalade-still-thieves-favorite-target/)
