    Default Catalytic converter causing check engine light

    So my v6 G8 only has 55k miles on it, and I was try to get it inspected but they shop says my catalytic converter on the left side is bad. They explained it will be $1100 to fix with parts and labor. This seems a bit high in price in my opinion. Has anyone else had this problem?
