Catalytic Converter Theft

Criminal Activity: Motor Industry Targeted

Reports have recently appeared in the media of catalytic converter thefts from cars with a view that incidents have increased. In speaking with An Garda Síochána it was noted that such crime is not confined solely to Toyota motor vehicles and is an industry wide issue.

It is reported that this criminal activity is targeting specific metal elements within the catalytic converter to sell onward. We strongly urge customers who may have been a victim of this type of crime to report any such incidents to An Garda Síochána.

We together with the network of Toyota dealers have spoken with the experts in vehicle security. They have made recommendations in respect of possible deterrents, notably alarm systems / sensors and other security devices. We have been informed by these security experts that any of their recommendations / installations are deterrents, however, and are not a guarantee to prevent it.

If you wish to have alarm systems / sensors and other security devices / deterrents fitted, please speak to your Toyota Dealer. The Toyota Dealer will be in the best position to advise you in respect of such deterrents and arrange fitment for you at a most competitive retail price.

We once again recommend that should your vehicle be subjected to theft this should be immediately reported to An Garda Síochána.
