CATALYTIC CONVERTER WARRANTY CERTIFICATE
The manufacturer warrants that its catalytic converters are free from defects in materials and workmanship. This catalytic converter has been designed and manufactured to meet State and Federal
emission reduction requirements; and, when the vehicle is properly maintained, the catalytic converter is warranted to meet such requirements for 25,000 miles from the time of installation and it will not constitute a safety hazard. The manufacturer warrants its catalytic converters external shell, including end pipes, to last for 5 years or 50,000 miles, which ever comes first, from the date of installation. This catalytic converter has been designed and manufactured to meet these warranty requirements.
The manufacturer’s warranty is void if the catalytic converter is not properly installed on the vehicle for which it is designed and cataloged; if the catalytic converter has been altered or repaired or damaged by negligence, accident or mishandling. The manufacturer assumes no liability for catalytic converter failures related to engines not operating within original equipment specifications, to vehicles with modified exhaust emission control systems or to the use of leaded fuel.
The manufacturer will replace any such defective converter provided that it be returned to an authorized dealer along with proof of purchase and properly completed warranty certificate. If warranty claim relates to emission performance, proof of failure of an emission test must be provided. Documentation showing the vehicle’s current state of tune is also required. The manufacturer reserves the right to determine what constitutes vehicle’s proper operating condition. No other warranty expressed or implied, including merchantability, applies to the catalytic converter, nor is any person or company authorized to assume any other warranty. The manufacturer does not assume any responsibility for any consequential damages occasioned by the catalytic converter, or inconvenience or interruption in any operation.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
An improperly tuned engine will cause damage to a catalytic converter. Be sure the engine is properly tuned to manufacturer’s specifications and that emission control equipment is operating within original equipment specifications before installing this new catalytic converter. If the new converter is being used to replace a failed converter, it is possible the same problem, if not corrected, will cause damage to this new converter.
An improperly tuned or misfiring engine can allow unburned gasoline to enter the converter, causing extremely high temperatures that can result in melted, plugged or broken internal substrates. This situation voids the warranty.
