If you don’t know, the Catalytic Converter(Cat) is easy to steal on the Toyota Prius. The Toyota Prius Cat carries a very valuable price tag once removed. I am now protected by a Cat Shield™ by MillerCAT!
The New York Times wrote an excellent article on the national crisis of catalytic converter theft (link here). There has yet to be a national strategy to deal with this outbreak of theft, but communities and states can prepare themselves by adopting the practices of areas that have been hardest hit.
Check out the study performed by MillerCAT on the surge of thefts.
I am officially not worried that my Catalytic Converter on my 2013 Toyota Prius Plug-in will get stolen! This is actually a really good feeling after hearing other Prius’ parked in close vicinity of my car start and sound like a motorcycle.
MillerCAT was gracious enough to provide a Cat Shield™ to me through our partnership and I am really impressed! Not only is the part made of high-quality materials, but the installation instructions were clear and easy to follow.
Check out my installation video on YouTube below and let me know your thoughts.
