Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to help you.

Generally no unless there is some other crime, such as kidnapping is involved.

If the theft took place in one state, simply if the car is driven or taken across the state line, it would not constitute federal crime, since the crime itself took place within one state.
