Where’s the location of a Toyota Prius’s catalytic converter?
I’ve been hearing a lot about criminals stealing catalytic converters. Frankly, I have no idea where mine is on my car. What’s the location of a Toyota Prius’s catalytic converter?
Answer provided by
Yes, thieves steal catalytic converters because they cost so much—around $2,000 for a new one in your Prius. In a Prius (and other cars), the catalytic converter is located underneath the car near the exhaust pipe. They are fairly easy to take off a car, which also makes them a target for criminals.
Here are some tips to prevent your catalytic converter from being stolen:
- Park in a garage or well-lit area.
- Park near a wall or other obstacle that makes it difficult for someone to get underneath your car.
- Consider buying a clamp that acts like a lock for catalytic converters.
