For whatever reason or another, it seems common (including my own car). The cat isnt always going bad. My car threw this even with a NEW 02 sensor and cat... it popped up twice on a 500 mile roadtrip (crusing at low RPM for long distances) after the fact that it was replaced , so perhaps its just a bug, at least among older subarus.

These will fix your P0420 for about $4. You can get the foulers at AutoZone.
