Now they are bad again and they said it was over a year and or 12,000 miles and they will not take care of it again. Does anyone know when a recall is invoved what is the dealerships responsibility?
    If its a v8 they are covered for 12 years 250k under extended coverage policy. Only for 04-05 LH2 N* powered cars.

    I googled around and found that the Fed law says new aftermarket converters must have a 5yr/50000 warranty on the converter shell, casing and end pipes and must meet emission standards for 25000 miles if the vehicle has been properly maintained.

    If installed by a dealer it should have 25,000 mile warranty

    If only purchased at dealer and installed elsewhere only a 12 month warranty

    Re: catalytic converter help

    This is so frustrating. I realize this is an old post and quit possibly won't be read. I've never owned a cadilac but have always had a GM or chevy truck. I bought my fiancé a 2005 Cadillac srx. Within a week the check engine light comes on with a code showing cadilitic converter issue. One of them was changed in 2009. It's disappointing with all the issues they've had with the v8 that it wouldn't carry over to the v6.

    Re: catalytic converter help

    I own an 05 AWD SRX V6. Catalytic Converter needs to replaced for sure. At first I was told I was covered since my VIN was on their list of approve vehicles. Now I'm told that an inspector needs to see the car and approve/disapprove the repairs. So I'm getting mixed messages from my dealership on this. I will post as soon as I get an answer. Meanwhile I would love to hear from anyone who has a V6 AWD and was approved or denied.

    Re: catalytic converter help

    So here is the latest on my SRX. The dealer has agreed to replaced the CC and cover the cost. Yeah!!!. I took me convincing them that GM agreed
    to do this by showing the Service Letter from GM. If needed, I can post a link. They had to verify that my vehicle qualified by checking the VIN and
    having an inspector look at the car and the paper work. For me, persistence paid off. My advise, go back to the dealer with the facts printed and
    don't give in. Talk to the Service Manager or Dealership Manager is necessary.

    Hi mbynum, what are the requirements? I've gotten mixed signals on this forum as to what stipulations GM has in place. My is an 04 AWD 6cyl with about 135k.

    Re: catalytic converter help

    I bought a 2005 Cadillac SRX V6 for my Mom in 2011 with only 54,000 miles. It currently only has 70,000 miles on it and I have replaced the catalytic converter, and both
    the number 1 & 3 ignition coils. I've spent about $2,000 since 2012, $1,400 of which has been spent since Sept. 2014. Guess what?? Now, I have yet another check engine light on...the 3rd time since Sept. 2014. Dossett Cadillac in Hattiesburg, MS is where I'm having my repairs done for my Mom, but something just doesn't seem right and they are totally unwilling to work with me. Just last month, I spent another $400 on the #1 ignition coil and I already have another engine light.

    Can someone please HELP?? Does the recall for catalytic converters on 2005 SRXs include the V6 models? Also, I spoke with the service manager at Dossett today and got more information, but they don't think they are misdiagnosing my Mom's car. Has anyone else has these issues? Is there anything GM may do or advise me do?

    Thanks so much!

    Re: catalytic converter help

    Usually when one coil goes bad it's time to replace them all. Had that on V8, should be true for V6 too. But for misfires to kill the converters, it would take some time and you'd feel the shaking. Doubt it's the cause.
