Question

Visitor, 4 Cylinder, Portsmouth, NH, April 25, 2010, 07:33

Hi
Greetings
I am getting the following error code when I analyze my check engine light:

16804 - Catalyst System: Bank 1: Efficiency Below Threshold

P0420 - 35-00 - -

I checked some VW forums and it seems to be a catalytic converter issue. Something to do with the O2 sensors in the front and back. Could anyone give me an idea on what needs to be done and how much it would cost before I take it to a mechanic? I appreciate your response
