We purchased this 2016 Toyota Prius V level 3 with stolen catalytic convertors. Typically thieves target the 2004-2009 Toyota Prius year models, due to the particular elements found in those catalytic converters for those years.
The Toyota Prius is not the only vehicle that is being targeted for its catalytic converter, they are targeting the following vehicles: Ford F150, Toyota Camry, Honda CR-V, Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra, Honda Accord, etc.
The current estimated wait time to get a new catalytic convertor from Toyota is 9 Months! It’s no wonder why Toyota is offering the catalytic shields standard from the dealer as an add-on for the new 2023 Prius. We’ll still buy your Prius with a bad hybrid battery, bad engine and no catalytic convertors!
