I have a 2001 subaru outback, 120K. The car is running fine but the check engine light recently went on. The dealer scanned the code and told me that the catalytic converter needs replacing. Subsequently the light went off for about 50 miles and is now back on. Since replacing the converter is a $700 repair (!) I want to make sure this is the issue. Are there other things to consider or ways to substantiate the diagnosis?
