I just got a letter from LRNA saying that the catalytic converter/exhaust system is being recalled due to faulty welding... Anyone else get it?
This is not a recall. There is no faulty welding. It says that the housing of "some" catalytic converters may experience a small weld crack. It does not mention anything the exhaust system having any faulty welding.black05 said:I just got a letter from LRNA saying that the catalytic converter/exhaust system is being recalled due to faulty welding...

:shock: The folks that responded simply corrected your misinformation to clarify any confusion that you had or that may come up. There is a huge difference between a recall and an issue based warranty extension. Their responses just help folks that haven't received the letter yet understand what is really at hand.black05 said:I'm sorry that I couldn't quote the exact issue at hand you ---. I was on my phone and I didn't have the letter in front of me.I was just seeing if it was legitimate is all. Unfortunately you can't seem to do anything around here without some type of criticism. I'm not surprised. I'm officially out of here being as I'm not wanted obviously anyway. Good bye.
What planet are you from?minnesota mitch said:You work for the dealer or something proceed carefully anybody that believes they fall into the catagory for this work on there rangie is at least gonna call.You sound like you are the dealer.Are there mostly dealers on here are owners i notice sometimes people post problems and no one has nothing to say its like there forcing them to use the dealer to solve there problems.Now there a few real mechanical enthusist type excuse me if a spelled it wrong but seems 75-90 percent are sounding like dealers.The p38 forum has way more diy threads and is way more mechanicly helpfull from an independent stand point and the other 10-20 percent are critical as hell.And feel they know what people life saving are bye a few type sentences :think:
It wouldn't neccessarily be an issue of it failing more in the U.S than the U.K, but the actions of consumer and/or environmental protection agencies. My guess is that the U.S. EPA has imposed the extended warranty on the item due to actual failures or likelyhood of projected failure. The U.S. EPA requires the warranty period of emission control system parts to be a standard length of time that is usually longer than the warranty for the rest of most vehicles. The auto maker has no choice in the length of warranty for emission control parts, unless they would voluntarily extend beyond what's required. And that's not bloody likely.dingo said:...Is there any reason why if the problem manifest itself in the US it should not in the UK?
