2007 Toyota Yaris 4dr Hatch

106-horsepower 1.5L I4 4-speed automatic FWD

6200 mi Check engine light came on during mild highway cruising (steady 40mph). Code diagnosed as exceeding allowable emissions. Could not locate source of problem. Check engine light reset, and told to return if it re-appeared. 
6200 mi Check engine light appeared again. Engine light disappeared on route to shop. Told no time was available to check, and appointment booked for November 12th. Appointment on November 12th discovered it was the same code for excess emissions again. 
7440 mi Engine light appeared again, assuming for excess emissions. New appointment booked for December fourth. Expect no positive outcome again. 
9920 mi Final diagnosis is a bad catalytic converter. Appointment booked for January. Until then intermittent check engine light is still present. 
10220 mi New catalytic converter installed. Fuel economy worse afterwards. 
19840 mi Violent bee-like vibration droning in and out at highway speeds, car unbearable to drive for more than an hour at a time. Lots of makeshift bushings added to the air intake system to dampen, has mostly resolved the issue.
