asked by on

My check engine light is on. I have been told it is due to the catalytic converter.The dealer I purchased the car from had one catalytic converter replaced. A Buick dealer quoted me $977 to replace. Is this a good price?

My car has 113000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: Hi. The price they quoted you at the dealer...

Hi. The price they quoted you at the dealership is not that bad but you could probably get a better price at midas or a local exhaust shop. By federal law your catalytic convertor has a 10 year warranty on it and should be replaced by the dealership under warranty. I suggest you ask your local dealership about the warranty for catalytic convertor.
