How do you know it has been stolen? Suddenly your car sounds like a tank. One day you drive it and the car is normal, the next it's very, very loud. Typically the thieves will crawl under your vehicle at night and saw off the part so you get a nasty surprise the next morning. Toyotas (Prius), Honda Element and any vehicle that sits high off the ground (work vans) are the primary targets as their converters are most accessible. Here in the Museum District, Fan and Scotts Addition we are experiencing these thefts often.
So, what do you do if this happens to you? Call us at Cutshaw. We are experienced at replacing this part and working with your insurance company to make the process as painless as possible for you. We are also the only garage in the city experienced at installing "Cat Security" a shield (picture above) that is rivetted onto your vehicle to cover the converter and make it MUCH HARDER to steal.
Whether your converter has been stolen, or you want to make sure it does not get stolen, we can help by installing a shield. Pricing varies, approx $300 parts and labor.
