07/20/2021

As we get into the summer months, protect your car and your catalytic converter. The Texas Motor Vehicle Crime Prevention Authority has declared the month of July as “Watch Your Car” month. In addition to car theft numbers going up during the summer, we are now seeing a big increase in catalytic converter thefts.

Stealing a catalytic converter only takes a couple of minutes and usually is done with a cordless reciprocating saw or a wrench. Thieves are sliding under cars and trucks and brazenly sawing off converters by the thousands.

A person may not be able to tell their catalytic converter was stolen by looking at their car, but they will know as soon as they start the engine. When a catalytic converter has been removed, the vehicle will make a loud roaring sound that will get louder as the gas pedal is pushed.

The main reason that catalytic converters are stolen is because they're valuable to scrap metal dealers. They contain precious metals, including rhodium, platinum, and palladium. All cars made after 1974 are required to have catalytic converters. Some are more appealing to thieves than others. Trucks and SUVs are common targets of catalytic converter theft because they are raised off the ground. This makes it easier to climb under and saw through the metal. However, every vehicle on the road is susceptible to a stolen catalytic converter.

If your catalytic converter is stolen, you should immediately contact the police, then your insurance provider. Your insurance may cover the replacement costs, but you'll still be on the hook for your deductible.
