Catalytic converter thefts have increased over 600% in two years

Prices in precious metals have been increasing due to demand. As a result, a black market has developed where thieves cut off and sell the catalytic converter to scrapyards, who then sell to recyclers to extract the metals.
With the cost of a catalytic converter anywhere from $2,500 to $5,000 installed and the possibility of the vehicle not passing smog with the new unit, the Catalytic Converter Shield is one way to ensure the safety of your Toyota.

What is a catalytic converter and why is it important?

A catalytic converter is – in essence – the part of your car that turns harmful emissions into less harmful emissions. In an internal combustion engine, the exhaust gas contains toxic gases and pollution. This part plays a crucial role in performance to both keep you safe and also reduce harmful emissions into the air. So what happens if this critical part stops working or gets stolen? Your car can’t do its job of reducing harmful emissions anymore, putting you and everyone around you at risk. It can also affect your engine and over time, lead to an engine shutdown.

To combat Catalytic Converter thefts, we are now installing catalytic converter shields.

Catalytic converter thefts have tripled in the city of Bakersfield so far this year compared to last year.
Replacement parts for Catalytic Converters may be delayed up to 6 months. Ensure the safety of your Toyota by installing a catalytic converter shield.
