Re: Anyone been told their catalytic converter can't be replaced under warranty?
Go back to the dealer and scream "magnison act". They have to PROVE that aftermarket mods caused the failure. Your aftermarket OEM replacement O2's did not because they ARE OEM certified. Your aftermarket exhaust, if its a bolt on or replacement muffler it in NO WAY will cause the cats to fail. There are only 3 things that will kill a cat. 1-excessively high EGT's, 2-extremely rich condition, 3-long term use just wearing out.
You should be covered under warranty. Let the service manager know if its not replaced AND your previous charges refunded you are calling the area warranty rep. You have a legit problem that IS covered, you should not have had to pay service fees when you went in. Trust me, I love GM vehicles but they have some of the worst customer service. Been in your possition and it takes persistance on your part. Dont get rude with the dealer, be polite and serious. Show him you are serious and not some idiot that doesnt know anything about how warranty service works and you will get exactly what you want.
