How much is it to replace a catalytic converter?

Like finding a good contractor, tailor, or other skilled profession, selecting a mechanic or body shop you can trust with major repair jobs is becoming harder to do.

CarCare To Go is one local business aiming to change the way the industry works by offering flat-pricing on basic maintenance, offering free valet pick-up and return on all services, and thorough video and photo documentation from your individual mechanic showing you first-hand what your vehicle needs and why.

You approve each estimate or repair line-by-line from your phone or via e-mail, by-passing the waiting room and still feeling educated and empowered to make the best choices for you.

Unless a certified professional mechanic has examined your vehicle, simply searching online for the right part is not likely to yield the repair you need — or the cost savings you hope to obtain. For example, catalytic converters start at around $900 and can even range upwards of $3,000 for certain models. As manufacturers phase out models and address supply chain challenges, it’s best not to delay a critical repair like a catalytic converter in hopes of waiting on a lower price.

Bringing your own part to the mechanic isn’t the best idea, but ask your advisor about after-market parts and talk about the warranty coverage and period for your specific car.

Need an oil change or just an estimate about why that check engine light is on? Book now to get a full-synthetic oil change for just $20.23, and there’s still time to enter the Summer Getaway Giveaway for ALL service appointments booked and completed before July 3rd.
