According to a study carried out by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), BMW's X5 SUV is amongst the least stolen cars in the US. Actually, according to their numbers, 0 (zero) cars were stolen for evert 1000 built.
The government agency wanted to find out what car was most prone to being stolen in the USA. Their research showed that the Dodge Charger is the thieves' favorite car, followed closely by the Mitshubishi Galant.

As a comparison, 4.8 thefts were reported for every 1000 Chargers produced in 2011, whereas the BMW was static at 0. According to the NHTSA, the reason for these amazing numbers is the automaker's usage of ignition immobilizers, rendering the cars practically impossible to steal.

The BMW E70 X5 was followed closely in the top by the Volvo XC70 and the Lexus SC, with the same score, whilst on the other end, next to the Charger and Galant, the Cadillac STS and Lamborghini Gallardo made some shameful appearances.
