Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

This does almost always mean the catalytic converter has failed, it is about a $200 part and a 3 hour job so around $500 at a exhaust shop. If you have it done at dealer it will cost closer to $1000. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

That’s not to bad I read a few threads that had quoted horrible cost of several 1000s for catalytic converter replacement, was worried

Definitely shouldn't be that much and I'd highly recommend a exhaust shop over dealership. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.

Thanks for help
Good night

The converter likely won't even effect performance of vehicle and if it does it will still be driveable so I wouldn't worry about it too much. Thanks again and have a good night.
