Final Passenger Motor Vehicle Theft Data; Motor Vehicle Theft 
Prevention Standard

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 
Department of Transportation.

ACTION: Final theft data notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document publishes the final data on passenger motor 
vehicle thefts that occurred in calendar years 1990-1991. As provided 
in the Anti Car Theft Act of 1992, these data were used to determine 
the theft rates for existing passenger motor vehicle lines manufactured 
in model years 1990 and 1991 and to determine the median theft rate for 
all those lines. Vehicle lines with theft rates exceeding the median 
theft rate of 3.5826 per thousand vehicles produced, are subject to 
selection for coverage under the Theft Prevention Standard.
    The purpose of this notice is to correct an error in the final 
passenger motor vehicle theft data for model years (MYs) 1990/1991 that 
were published on January 6, 1994 (59 FR 796) and to determine the new 
median theft rate effected by that correction.

EFFECTIVE DATE: These data apply to the 1990-1991 calendar years. The 
amendment made by this document is effective immediately.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Ms. Barbara A. Gray, Office of Market Incentives, NHTSA, 400 Seventh 
Street, SW., Washington, DC 20590. Ms. Gray's telephone number is (202) 
366-1740.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Motor Vehicle Theft Law Enforcement Act 
of 1984 (Theft Act), added Title VI to the Motor Vehicle Information 
and Cost Savings Act (Cost Savings Act). Pursuant to Title VI, NHTSA 
promulgated 49 CFR Part 541, Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention 
Standard. Part 541 establishes performance requirements for inscribing 
or affixing vehicle identification numbers (VINs) onto certain major 
original equipment and replacement parts of high theft lines of 
passenger motor vehicles.
    Section 603 of the Cost Savings Act, as originally enacted, 
specified three categories of car lines that were high-theft lines 
within the meaning of Title VI. These three types were: existing lines 
that had a theft rate exceeding the median theft rate for calendar 
years (CYs) 1983-1984 (section 603(a)(1)(A)); new lines that were 
likely to have a theft rate exceeding that median theft rate (section 
603(a)(1)(B)); and lines with theft rates below the median theft rate, 
but which had a majority of major parts interchangeable with lines 
whose theft rate exceeded or was likely to exceed the median theft rate 
(section 603(a)(1)(C)).
    Section 603(b) of the Cost Savings Act provided that the median 
theft rate was the combined rate determined for CYs 1983-1984. Section 
603(b) also set forth the equation NHTSA must use to determine the 
theft rates for each of the vehicle lines. After applying this equation 
to each existing line, NHTSA was directed by section 603(b) to rank the 
lines by theft rates to calculate the median theft rate.
    In a Federal Register document of November 12, 1985 (50 FR 46666), 
NHTSA published the final theft data reflecting passenger motor vehicle 
thefts in CYs 1983-1984. In that document, NHTSA also explained how it 
decided on the data source to be used and how it calculated the final 
theft rates. Based on its calculations, NHTSA determined that the 
median theft rate for CYs 1983 and 1984 was 3.2712 thefts per thousand 
vehicles.
    In calculating the final CY 1990-1991 theft rates, NHTSA followed 
the same procedures it used in calculating the 1983-1984 theft rates. 
In Table I of this document, the agency lists each of the 231 vehicle 
lines manufactured in model years 1990 and 1991 in descending order 
according to theft rate.
    Suzuki notified the agency that it had inadvertently overlooked an 
additional 16,000 units produced for the Geo Metro for MY 1991. This 
notification was a result of Suzuki's request for reconsideration of a 
vehicle under the provisions of 49 CFR Part 542. By adding the missing 
16,000 units for MY 1991 to the already reported production numbers, 
the theft rate for the Geo Metro changes from 3.7445 to 3.3979, 
shifting the position of the vehicle from number 108 of 231 vehicles to 
number 119.
    Based on the data set forth in Table I, NHTSA has determined that 
the final median theft rate for MYs 1990 and 1991 be changed from 
3.5866 to 3.5826 thefts per 1,000 vehicles produced. The final median 
is the theft rate ranked 116th (3.5826 thefts per thousand) in the 
table, according to the instructions in section 603(b)(2) of the Cost 
Savings Act.
    If NHTSA has not previously determined the line to be high theft, 
each line shown in positions 1 through 115, inclusive, in Table I, will 
be subject to selection as a high-theft line. In selecting high-theft 
lines based on the 1990/91 median theft rate, NHTSA will follow the 
procedures it established in 49 CFR Part 542, Procedures for Selecting 
Lines To Be Covered By The Theft Prevention Standard, and provide 
affected manufacturers an opportunity to comment on NHTSA's preliminary 
determination that a line is high theft. Final selection by NHTSA will 
mean that the vehicles in these lines and their major replacement parts 
will have to be marked as specified in 49 CFR Part 541, The Federal 
Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, beginning with Model Year 
1996.
    Table III lists lines that have theft rates above the median theft 
rate of 3.5826 and have major parts interchangeable with those of lines 
that have theft rates below the median theft rate. The Geo Metro, 
Suzuki Swift, Ford Tempo and Mercury Topaz car lines have been deleted 
from Table III, reflecting a shift in vehicle positions caused by 
adding the missing production units of the Geo Metro car line. 
Additionally, the Chevrolet Lumina APV, Pontiac Transport APV and the 
Oldsmobile Silhouette APV which were inadvertently omitted from Table 
III have been added.
    The following corrected list represents NHTSA's recalculation of 
theft rates for all 1990/1991 passenger motor vehicle lines. This list 
is only intended to inform the public of 1990/1991 motor vehicle theft 
experience and does not have any effect on the obligations of regulated 
parties under the Cost Savings Act.

    Authority: 15 U.S.C. 2021 and 2023: delegation of authority at 
49 CFR 1.50.
