Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Recommended Posts

Hi i was told by my local Toyota dealer today that they do not sell Cat Locks for my 2015 Aygo as they do not get nicked. Anyone know if this is true? Thanks.

I never heard of any aygo been done. However they do other non hybrid models like Auris 1.6 for example.

As per above, haven't seen any reports of cat thefts from the Aygo. 

Moved to the Aygo club.

With the location of the cat under the bonnet it can't be easily accessed by the cat thieves preferred method of quickly cutting it out with an angle grinder, so they'll move on to an easier target where the cat is underneath the car.

The Aygo Cat is part of the exhaust manifold, so very unlikely to be stolen by jacking the car up like a Prius.

Most new Toyota including hybrids the cat is built into the exhaust manifold although there is a second box like particulate filter or second cat that got nicked too, which is easily accessible under the car. Older hybrids like Prius gen 3 these two cats are after exhaust manifold and comes as one peace along with middle silencer, thieves cut the whole lot next to the middle silencer. There were reports of new Corolla been done too, although what was stolen may have no value but  the trouble is as large as catalytic converter itself been stolen.

It's unusual for an older car like a Celica to be a target as they are not as valuable, replacement is around £130 so i cant see the scrap being any more than £10-15 max a used exhaust is £30-50 unfortunately the sensors are the expensive part

i know it's not all about the money but the inconvenience and the feeling that your property has been stolen

usually the more difficult it is to access, they move on. That's why old landrovers are targeted for example.
