CAR FAILED SAFETY INSPECTION DUE TO LEAK IN EXHAUST. MECHANIC SAYS CRACK IS AT THE TOP BUT WHOLE PIECE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. COST $500 SEEMS HIGH.
2002 Saturn L200 • 8,500 miles
No lights indicating problem, car does rattle and slight gas smell.
So what is question?
Is there no way to patch or replace a single part? Is the price reasonable if not?

They are saying I have to order a whole new exhaust including catalytic converter etc...
Take to exhaust repair shop maybe can be welded
