GM is replacing Catalytic Converters

Received a letter yesterday from Pontiac telling me they will replace faulty converters up to 10 years or 120,000 miles. Letter referred to 2008 G6 with 2.4 engine and 4 speed automatic. I don't know what other years are covered. Thanks GM for stepping up to the plate on this one. Haven't had the problem myself but lots have. They also say they will reimburse those who have already paid for the repair.

"...some 2008 model year Pontiac G6 vehicles may have a condition where the mat within the catalytic converter may erode, causing the illumination of the Malfunction Indicator Lamp."

Verified in Canada.

10 years 193,000km

2006 Pontiac G6 4cyl

I went to GM today to price the part and go from there. We've had this problem for 3 months now and we were 15,000km over the previous coverage of 130,000km.

Very pleased with GM over this!

They replaced mine today -2009 2.4L with 50999 miles. Check engine light with P0420 code. They were courtious and offered, but did not push other services. $0.00 cost to me.

Hi everyones,

Is this recall for the CAT is only for G6 , 2.4 L?
Is this apply only for G6 , 2.4 L 2008?
Is the CAT on a 2.4 L is different of the one on a 3.5 L?


Regards
