    "The price is right; The product fits perfectly and with minor effort. I have a 2003 vw jetta gls 2.0 that had a broken Cat Converter. I had the check engine light as well as really bad gas mileage. I did not want to spend the money on a OEM part and decided to give this one a shot. It was installed in about 20 minutes. the gas mileage has improved closer to factory specs and the check engine light is history. It comes with a warranty also so all in all it is a good deal if that is your price range. I was surprised to find that it was missing a heat shield. I will have to weld one on there at some point in the future although you can drive without one if desired." posted by: FixITonaBudgetGuy on January 28, 2013

    The 3rd best-selling car of all time wouldn't want to be classified also as one of greatest polluters among cars. That's why it is important to have a working Volkswagen Golf catalytic converter installed always. Remove all the harmful exhaust gasses and elements from the car to limit the environmental damage these can cause. If you run your Golf without a catalytic converter - due to a malfunction or theft - then prepare to face the consequences of your car releasing bad emissions. This may be an expensive device to install in your car, but the benefits will be reaped for a very long time. Keep this car's friendly and appealing image by equipping it with a Volkswagen Golf catalytic converter.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Ask APW
    • Is a broken Volkswagen Golf Catalytic Converter covered under any type of warranty?
      Answer: For some models of the Volkswagen Golf released in certain years--and other VW models--the company has offered an extended warranty that specifically covers some of the bad catalytic converters. This has a period valid that ranges between 5 to 10 years and has a 50,000 up to a 100,000 mile limit. If the warranty is still valid, take the car to the dealer and the part should easily be replaced by the service crew.
    • The warranty on the Volkswagen Golf Catalytic Converter has already expired. Is it better to take the car and get parts from the dealership, or are there any alternative shops to go to?
      Answer: One of the benefits of taking the car to the dealership is getting high quality and official service from the people of Volkswagen. However, these perks do come at a steep price. Both parts and labor costs can go insanely high. This is very significant especially for an expensive part like the catalytic converter. With enough resourcefulness, replacement catalytic converters can be bought online at a lower price. Also, replacement can be done by a shop that charges less, or as a DIY. Not only does working outside the dealership save you money, a new converter can even customize the car to give it more horsepower.
    • What are the signs of a Volkswagen Golf Catalytic Converter that has gone bad?
      Answer: One of the first indications of a broken Volkswagen Golf catalytic converter failure is when the check engine light on the dashboard console lights up. When the engine is taken for a scan, the error codes that should come up are related to bad air to fuel mixture in the engine. Other signs that point to a Volkswagen Golf catalytic converter failure include a bad smell from the exhaust, rattling noise coming from under the car, and low engine power. Get this fixed as soon as possible to avoid further inconveniences.
