    Asheville help needed

    Hey guys - we have a 2003 LX470 that my wife drove to Asheville to visit family. I am worried the catalytic converter on it may be toast. Is there somewhere in town that she could get it looked at on the weekend? I'm worried about her potentially driving it home - two kids with her too.
