Q: Catalytic converter racket or collusion ? on 2002 Toyota Prius

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Why can't someone who lives IN California get a catalytic converter that doesn't cost almost as much as the car its on ? One can get an aftermarket converter in 49 states for as low as $ 68 but if you have your car registered in California, you're forced to go to the dealer ? Why doesn't anyone else sell this part cheaper ? If we didn't owe money on this car ( 5 payments ) we could register it in Nevada, get the part cheap and drive it all we want. I don't get it. Did someone get paid off to have this law passed so that car owners get screwed only in this state ?

Most aftermarket cats don't work! We've seen these specials that are worse than the cats that were on the car that failed. Reputable manufacturers spend the money to go through the CARB but must pass on their costs for registration.
