Have you protected your catalytic converter yet?

We're seeing a surge in thefts of catalytic converters again, so if you drive one of the frequently targeted high-profile trucks or SUVs, please call one of our partnering auto service businesses and schedule your service today.

If you drive a pickup or SUV that's high off the ground and has an accessible catalytic converter, you're at risk for catalytic converter theft.
