92000 0 The computer had a trouble code of P0420 which is the catalytic converter/O2 sensor malfuntion. I am driving my usual 550 miles/week until Dec 20 2007 when I will have time to do something about the problem! 
95000 0 CEL came on and displayed Code P0420. Replaced both the Oxygen Sensors. Light reset and came on again. Now in hot hot weather (above 55F) it comes on) otherwise remains off. Took out the + battery terminal to reset the CEL and hasn't come on since. 
102000 0 CEL on with trouble code P0420. Had gone off but started coming ON again on intermittent basis. have decided to replace the Catalytic Converter but NOT DONE yet. Cost is the main issue. Can't decide if I want to fix or sell the car!
