In my neck of the woods in California, the catalytic converters are being stolen frequently for the money value. I called around town to muffler shops and they say that the majority of cars that come in to get a new converter installed are the Prius's and very few if any Rav4. Has anybody got their's stolen or got a shield welded to the bottom?

It's a problem all over. Takes only about 1 min to steal a cat. Prius are preferred because it runs on both electric then gas, so the metal inside in theory should be cleaner than other gas car's and they are the most popular hybrid sold. Not personally, but know of a Camry, Tacoma, and Honda Element were taken. None were hybrids.

Only time with volume sales the RAV hybrid and CRV hybrid will be more stolen. Theft happen anywhere =[.
