Catalytic converters eliminate excess gases in your exhaust stream. If the car has not been operating efficiently, or if the catalytic converter gets too old, it needs replacement.

If your car is 1 year old, it's still under warranty. It should not need replacement that soon, but there's no reason it shouldn't be covered.
