eCatalytic.com is a distributor for the products offered on this site; we are not the manufacturer. These products are warranted by their manufacturers in accordance with the terms specified by them. All catalytic converters are accompanied by a warranty card which must be completed and mailed directly to the manufacturer, not to us. If you receive a catalytic converter that is damaged, incorrect or missing the warranty card you must call our sales department for assistance immediately. Do not attempt to install damaged or incorrect products or modify them in any way.

 

 

CATALYTIC CONVERTER MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY

 

The manufacturer warrants that this catalytic converter is free from defects in materials and workmanship. This catalytic converter has been designed and manufactured to meet the emission performance requirements specified by the EPA. When the vehicle is properly maintained, the catalytic converter is warranted to meet such requirements for 5 years or 50,000 miles (whichever occurs first) from the date of purchase. The manufacturer further warrants the catalytic converter’s external shell and end-pipes (those being attached during the original manufacturing process and otherwise unaltered during installation) against defects in materials and workmanship, for 5 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first, from the date of installation.

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 it has been altered or repaired, or if it has been 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 illegally modified exhaust emission control systems or to use of specialty fuels, lubricants, or additives.

If the warranty claim relates to emissions performance, proof of failure of an emission inspection test or presence of OBD-II Diagnostic Trouble Codes indicating Insufficient Catalyst Efficiency must be provided. Documentation showing the vehicle’s current state of tune is also required. The manufacturer reserves the right to determine what constitutes the 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 that vary from state to state.

 

 

CATALYTIC CONVERTER MANUFACTURER'S WARNING

 

An improperly tuned engine can damage 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. A Catalytic converter, during proper operations of the vehicles, will not result in any unsafe condition or safety hazard.
