Hey everyone. So I have a 15 Kia Soul with about 115k miles. Everything has been running pretty smoothly until one day I get a check engine light come on. The last time this happened, it was because I didn’t tighten my gas cap on all the way. This time, I brought it to AutoZone for a quick code test and it came back with PO420 Catalyst below threshold.
This particular car had a recall for the potential of the catalytic converter overheating and damaging the engine. I brought it to the Kia dealership and they performed the recall. I’m concerned now since the catalytic converters is acting up and fear the recall didn’t help. I called Kia and they said they will have to charge a $99 diagnostic fee, despite the recall.
Should I be worried? I really don’t want to spend money to replace the catalytic converter, and I fear Kia won’t be covering any expenses since they claim the recall was fixed.
(Located in Columbus, OH if that makes any difference)
