Catalytic Converter thefts have increased by 175% over the last 2 years in Sonoma County
Easy to steal, expensive to replace
According to State Farm insurance company, California is the worst state for catalytic converter thefts, with more than 3 out of 10 claims filed with the company in the past 12 months happening in California. With the cost of a replacement catalytic converter in the Bay Area running between $2500 – $5000… it’s becoming critical for people to take anti-theft precautions much more seriously.
Additionally, due to current supply and supply chain shortages, if you experience a catalytic converter theft, you may be waiting weeks or even months for your replacement part. This means weeks or months that your car is out of commission.
Could you afford those repairs cost, and being without a car for that long??
Most thieves want an easy target, and if they run into a car protected by an anti-theft shield that will jam up and potentially ruin tools, they will likely move on.
