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.
Discovering that your vehicle is at risk of being targeted by thieves is never good news. However, if you have [comprehensive coverage] (https://getjerry.com/car-insurance/comprehensive-insurance) for your car or truck, your insurer should cover the cost of replacing an expensive item like a catalytic converter.
