Researching this it appears there is a technical service bulletin 01 07 07 Jan 22, 2007 2010372 "Update Programming for Catalytic Converter System" The description states "On-bard diagnosis (OBD) for the catalytic converter system may be set too sensitive causing fault codes with out a defect in the catalyst system." It also appears there could be any number of problems with sensors, pipes, hoses, etc causing the faults. The mechanic claims this is not a computer problem and is standing firm that the catalytic converter needs to be replaced.
What should I do next? I am loathe to go to a VW dealer but sure would be happy if a simple computer update fixed things.
have the same problem?
