Catalytic Converter

Asked by Nov 17, 2016 at 07:44 PM about the 2007 Pontiac Vibe Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Pontiac Vibe, 2007 check engine light came on.  The deanship told me they
didn't make them anymore for vibes, and to take it to a muffler shop to put a
universal one in. When I spoke to the muffler shop on the phone they quoted
me $450.  When I took the car in to the muffler shop they are now saying they
can't put a universal one in and are quoting me $1,000!!!

Just try a few repair shops in the area, a good shop can change it for you it doesn't need to be done by a muffler shop, they are ripping you off at a 1,000.00

Really? Okay thank you! I'm so confused because I'm getting conflicting information. The dealership told me they didn't make catalytic converters anymore for Pontiac vibes and to get a universal one. Now the muffler shop is telling me a universal one won't fit. So frustrating and want this car to last me a little longer.

There's 6 different ones listed on rockauto.com with the most expensive one being $343 + shipping. You'll have to know what emissions system you have. Either Federal or California Emissions. It makes a difference! The emissions decal under the hood will tell you. If you live outside of California you may still have California Emissions. My '03 S-10 Pick Up has California Emissions and was originally delivered to Delaware. My '00 Grand Prix also has California Emissions and was originally delivered to New Jersey. I have had a universal converter on the Grand Prix since 2013 with no issues. HTH. -Jim

If you live in the state of fruits and nuts make sure you get one that is legal there.
