Catalytic Converter Shield Installation in Castro Valley
Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley offers catalytic converter shield installation to protect your vehicle. Unfortunately, due to high prices of the precious metals that are used in catalytic converters, there is a nationwide epidemic of catalytic converter thefts. At our Castro Valley auto repair shop we can install a shield to protect your car’s catalytic converter. The shield makes it difficult, more noisy, and time consuming to steal the catalytic converter, so the thieves are likely to move on, looking for an easier target.
Cars that are most likely to be targeted by thieves are Toyota Prius ( in particular Prius Gen2), and Honda Element. But we are aware of Ford, Lexus, Toyota Tacoma, Nissan NV200 vans and Chevrolet City Express vans being targeted as well.
Depending on the make and model, a catalytic converter shield (“cat shield”) made specifically for your vehicle may be available. If not, there are “universal” shields available as well. The process is fairly straightforward, and if you drop you vehicle off in the morning, you will be able to pick it up.
As the catalytic converter thefts continue, the “cat shields” evolve to provide better protection. At Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley we keep on top of the latest in catalytic converter protection, and offer latest catalytic converter shields to our clients. We also recommend parking your car inside the garage. But if you cannot, call us and setup an appointment for catalytic converter shield installation.
