A shop wants $240 for a magnaflow cat + labor + my old cat (illegal as of 1/1/09). The owner says they have to keep the cat for that price, the reason being there's a core charge. Is he messing around?
Re: Is there a core charge for catalytic converters?
Actually, some manufacturers are now requiring sellers to collect a core charge. Some OEM dealers are now required to collect the core or charge for it. Our shop have seen a $500 core charge from Nissan.
