15 Most Popular Vehicles for Catalytic Converter Thefts in MN

I feel like we haven’t talked about catalytic converters in a while. I haven’t heard of any major thefts of catalytic converters recently, but there’s always, of course, a chance that it could happen to you. There is a way to help prevent theft of yours and also the state of Minnesota has released a list of vehicles most targeted by catalytic converter thieves.

Ever since I heard about the massive increase in thefts last year, I’ve become paranoid that mine will also be stolen. However, there is a way to help prevent this possibility. The state of Minnesota has a program where you can get a special number printed on your catalytic converter.

How it works is a unique number tag is put on your cool to the touch catalytic converter. Then, when it heats up again, the number will be etched into the metal. That way, if your catalytic converter is stolen, law enforcement can find it. In addition, it is necessary that the person installing the tag does so at no cost to you. However, they may require you to do another service (like an oil change) in order to put on the tag. I think the next time I have an oil change I might have to!

Minnesota State also revealed the Top 15 Vehicles Targeted For Catalytic Converters. If you own one of these vehicles, it is strongly recommended that you obtain a tag for your converter.
