Below what threshold? What was the code number?

Sucks about the vents. New fenders are about $300 each, plus paint obviously.

If its Catalyst Below Threshold (Bank 2) - then that's a P0430; which is a bad catalytic converter. The passenger side cat is part of the manifold; I actually just dropped my car off today for the same. Which fortunately is covered under 8/80 federal emissions (and my '06 wasn't put in service until June '07 - and my GMPP just expired - so that's great news)

I'm not sure I to go as far as saying a car with Pep Boys vents cut into the fenders is exactly mint.

Normally I would not respond to Dick-head responses like yours 1madstsv6 but I bought the car sight unseen in person and had it shipped from FL to TX pics looked great and was told the car was mint. I even said the first thing I was going to do is remove those stick on vents but it was my surprise they were functional.

I agree that Madstsv1 is abrasive in his delivery in this case, but I'd also say he has a point. The dealer saying that the car was "mint" by minimizing/omitting the installation of $35 Buick fender vents into $1k of auto body work was how you were tricked into purchasing the car at an inflated price due to condition overvaluation. It's lying through omission for profit or gain, or fraud. Do you really think that the selling entity didn't realize those non-Cadillac vents were installed by a shade tree mechanic? If indeed it was "mint," we wouldn't be discussing fender vents. You might want to say "mechanically" mint instead. Just saying...

I understand what you guys mean and I will take it up with the dealer. At this point I am okay since they do actually let heat escape from the engine bay. keep in mind I said mint based of what I was told before I took possession of the car. Had I already owned the car and said that then you guys point would have been valid. I have been that jerk and said smart comments but at this point I jus appreciate the support an will try to contribute the same. thx
