CarMD.com recently published its annual Vehicle Health Index, and for the Check Engine Light category, the most frequent repair in 2020 was Catalytic Converter Replacement.
The high frequency of catalytic converter replacement is due to the nationwide wave of catalytic converter theft. High prices of the precious metals used in building catalytic converters have motivated thieves to steal them all over the country.
Oxygen sensor replacement is second on the list. This is also due to the crime wave – when thieves steal the catalytic converter, they often damage oxygen sensor system in the process.
Doral’s Auto Repair offers a catalytic converter shield that discourages theft – it can be installed in one day.
Remaining list items are more in line with what you would expect car repairs to be:
ignition coil replacement
spark plug replacement
mass air flow sensor replacement
fuel cap replacement
