    warranty help

    i have warranty at the dealership on my camaro. i got the recall notice for my cats(mine are out) and i was wondering if i take it in and they see my cut-out and lid if they will void my warranty or if they will give me crap for having the cut out?

    Hard to say for sure one way or the other, but they probably won't. The warranty on the cats is a federal law I believe so they have to replace them for you regardless of the cutout.

    Probably won't say anything about either - but depends on the dealer. Friend of mine had his drivers side replaced and had a cutout/lid - capped of course. If they do try another dealer. Unusual for both to go bad at the same time.

    hi i'm the shop foreman at a gm service department so this is what the special coverage adjustment means - cats are normally covered under warrantry for 8yrs/80,000 miles that has been extended to 10yrs/120,000 if you have a cat related concern ie. codes P0420 P0430 your dealer should replace the cat/cats at no charge to you and you dont have to be the original owner

    here is little more info which may help. the extended cat coverage is for 2000-2002 camaros and firebirds with an ls1. also to find out if there are any open recalls on any gm vehicle you can go to your dealer and have them "VISS" your vehicle. viss means vehicle inquiry system which is a record of what has been done to your car under warrantry and any recalls etc that need to be addressed. you need to provide the dealer your vin
