    Catalytic converter warranty is?

    My Engine light is on and i got it checked out today, and it turns out it came from my catalytic converter. They told me that Catalytic converters have an 8 year warranty or up to 80,000 miles is this true? if so then i should be getting a free catalytic converter when i go to the dealer? (in case your wondering i have a 2000 WS6 with 48,000 miles)

    Federal emissions warranty is 8 yrs/80K - GM extended the cat warranty in December '06 to 10 yrs/120K on the '00-'02 F cars.

    Yep, my cats were covered on the 2000 fbody I also have; the dealer said they "forgot about the warranty" until I brought it to their attention. If I hadn't said anything, they were going to charge me for the new cats & labor (bastards). After they realized I knew they were trying to screw me, they replaced them for free.

    Cats are under warranty forever. I've yet to see a dealer not replace them for free....I dunno what the "official" warranty is....but man I've seen folks with 150K get em exchanged for free....

    Yup. Just got mine replaced last week. At first they wouldn't cover it since the car was over the 8 year limit by one month, but I told the service manager to check again, as I was pretty sure the warranty was extended to 10 years. He checked, and sure enough, it was covered for ten years, 120k.

    I wonder how many people they charged for cats that shuld have gotten them free?

    Thanks for the heads up on this. I took my 2002 Z28 in this week to the dealer with a P0430 code and they confirmed it was the passenger side catalytic converter.

    I was just over the 130,000 kms for the emissions warranty and was quoted a total price of around $1000 (CDN$) to have it replaced. I mentioned the service bulletin and the extended warranty (up to 193,000 kms) and they confirmed it was covered:

    "#05513: Special Coverage Adjustment - Catalytic Converter Extended Warranty - (Nov 27, 2006)"

    I had another converter replaced in the first year or two of the original factory warranty, I don't recall if it was the same one or perhaps it was the driver side that time.
