A new survey has revealed what many car insurance customers think about car crime.

In addition, 76 per cent think that although vehicle manufacturers have done well to improve security, car crime is still an issue which causes concern.
People with newer models may feel slightly more at ease, however, as 63 per cent of motorists think that older cars are more vulnerable while 56 per cent believe anti-theft systems which require a finger-print scan are a good safety feature.
President of the AA Edmund King said: "Despite a big drop in car crime since the mid 90s there are still more than 1.5 million individuals affected each year.
