Ok, so the other week my car basically died and I could not go any faster than 40mph on a flat surface and 20mph on a hill. I couldnt rev higher than 3500 to 4000 rpm. I freaked out thinking I broke it and then last night had it towed to the stealership...this morning they called me to tell me they figured out what had happened. ......... Both cats were falling apart and cloging the rest of the muffler system. They told me to fix it, it would cost $1500!!!!!!!!! Is there ANY other way to get this fixed with out spening a ton of money I DONT have?!?!?!?!???? Do you think an exhaust shop would be able to fix it cheaper?? They said the front cat was a part of the exhaust manifold? That sounds like a retarded design to me...
