#5. The Toyota Prius has a catalytic converter that is approximately $2,100. The reason it is more expensive than most cars even though it has a small engine, is that it constantly switches from electricity to gas.

The precious metals that filter out the toxins need to operate at a lower temperature which means a higher loading is necessary. This catalytic converter is prone to higher levels of theft because of its high value and its popularity. So if you own a Pruis take precautions to keep your catalytic converter safe

#6. Ford Mustangs have catalytic converters priced at $1,500, a relatively low price compared to the others listed, but it is still a costly repair for its class. This vehicle class typically has a catalytic converter costing between $800 and $1200.
