My Honda Accord Ex has 120,000 miles, engine light came on2 days ago. I took it to autozone and they said it's the O2 sensor or the Catalytic convertor.How much should it cost to repair? Just bought December 18,2010. I have a 3 month warrenty that says it covers the engine & transmition, However they garentee inspection and it will fail because of the light.I was wonderring the cost if I get stuck with the bill.
