2011 Chevrolet Traverse LS 6 Cyl 3.60L


Cost of catalytic converters replacement.

Dealer said that both cats are bad and gave me a quote of $4,000 to fix both. Is this reasonable?

Always avoid the dealerships for the reason you are asking this question - too expensive. If you are unable or unwilling to perform the work yourself, then locate a reputable repair shop in your area. Always obtain 2-3 written estimates for the same work from different repair shops.

By the way, there are three (3) catalytic converters on your vehicle; two by the engine - one each on the right and left sides, and one more at the rear of the vehicle downstream of the engine.

The parts are inexpensive, and can be purchased for a fraction of the dealer cost. Try these on-line auto parts sources; www.autopartsanything.com; www.partsgeek.com; www.rockauto.com - to list a few.

In fact they (RockAuto) list the catalytic converters from around $128.00 each for your vehicle.
