    Looks like your catalytic converter was stolen.

    Yep G2s getting hit hard. Cat theft is epidemic world wide.

    go on YouTube search

    PRIUS STOLEN

    for a good video and info.

    The other thing is new kias and Hyundai’s getting stolen now with thieves capturing the fob rfid signatures and replicating them to get into and start the car.
    Have to use a faraday bag now and protect your fob output.
    They can grab it while it’s in your house.
