I just want to know if this vehicle would be safe to purchase or should I stay away? dealership thinks its no big deal, bit a 2014 with 23,000 seems like a red flag to me?

The catalytic converter are designed to last 100,000 miles and its very rare for them to fail at 23,000 miles. If this one needs a converter already with such low miles then yes I would call that a red flag. I think if it where me I would stay away from this one if in fact the converter has failed already.
