Default Safe to drive with a PO420 code

98 Accord V6 with 108,000 miles

Looks like I have to replace the cat.
Is the car safe to drive until I get it into the shop?

60 miles daily on highway...


TIA

No prob. No harm done.

And that code is P-zero, not P-oh. As in P0420.

I had the same situation. Drove with the Check Engine light on for
about 500 miles. Honda dealer said it was OK. Checked the code and
needed a cat converter. Was told it would cost $1000. Honda only covers
to 80K and I had 108K. I complained and actually got them to pay for
1/2 which saved me $500. Ask them about it.
