I took my car into the dealership to get the "check engine" light figured out. I was told I would need to replace the catalytic converter. I was suggested to take it to another place where it would be cheaper to replace. I took it to Midas and was told the problem was not the catalytic converter but the oxygen sensors. Who should I trust?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Patty Streeter,  at AskPatty.com Your dealership would know your car better than Midas as they are trained by the manufacture. Midas specializes in brakes and exhaust no drivablity problems. The authorized car dealership works on the same brand of car every day and specializes in your issues. If in doubt take it to another authorized car dealer to get a third opinion or an ASE certified Blue Seal repair center that speciazes in your make or brand of car.
