9 times out of then this points to bad cat and the cat will need be changed.
Other things that can cause this code are an exhaust leak before the front 02 sensor or the car in need a of a tuneup badly. Generally if this problem is sensor related you would have other codes also.
If you want to know of the cat is bad the computer stores data and when you have a data scanner that can access MODE 6 the data can indicate whether your cat is the issue or not. Its a bummer you have to have this diagnosed by a professioal to get this data since the scanners do not get loaned out.
I have heard of alot of cats that were replaced for no reason because of other reasons so be cautious on how to address this because your not going to be able diagnose this without a data scanner and all the specifications for the sensors.
