Public Service Announcement – Catalytic Converter Thefts on the Rise
Police departments all across our nation have seen a rise in the thefts of catalytic converters. Catalytic converters are an important part of a vehicle’s exhaust system and contain precious metals such as platinum and palladium. Thieves can remove a catalytic converter in minutes by cutting them off with a
battery operated saw. In Tacoma the most often targeted vehicles are the Toyota Prius and larger trucks, SUV’s and vans. You will know your catalytic converter has been stolen by the loud noise your vehicle makes when you start it up. Those who have been affected by such thefts know that catalytic
converter replacement can range between $1000 and $3000 including parts and labor.
