I have a question. I bought through the Mazda dealer a new catalytic converter for my 2013 Mazda 3 skyactiv in Aug 2018. I am now having to replace it again! Has anyone else had this issue? Could it have been defective but conveniently went out after the warranty? The original nal lasted 6 years!

Before you go any further, find out why the converters are failing. Fix it, then go from there.
The original that lasted six years not sure why it failed. The new one that only lasted 17 months, the internal preheat O2 sensor is failing. I was told to try catalytic converter cleaner before replacing.
