Emission Control Systems Warranty

How to Determine the Applicable Emissions Warranty
State and Federal agencies may require a different emission control system warranty depending on:

  • Whether the vehicle conforms to regulations applicable to light-duty or heavy-duty emission control
  • Whether the vehicle conforms to or is certified for California regulations in addition to U.S. EPA Federal regulations. All vehicles are eligible for the Federal Emission Control System Warranty. The California Emission Control System Warranty section of this manual gives the requirements for that warranty.
    Defects in material or workmanship in GM emission parts may also be covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty Bumper-to-Bumper coverage. The warranty with the broadest coverage applies.
    Any authorized General Motors dealer will, as necessary under these warranties, replace, repair, or adjust to GM specifications any genuine GM parts that affect emissions. The applicable warranty period shall begin on the date the vehicle is delivered to the first retail purchaser or, if the vehicle is first placed in service as a demonstrator or company vehicle prior to sale at retail, on the date the vehicle is placed in such service.
Emission Select Component Ltd wty
The “Emission Select Component Limited Warranty” (ESCLW) is a type of warranty that automakers offer to cover certain emission-related parts of a car for a set amount of time. This guarantee is meant to make sure that some important parts of the emission control system stay in good shape. This will help cut down on harmful emissions and make sure that environmental rules are followed. Usually, it includes parts like the catalytic converter, oxygen monitors, and the onboard diagnostic (OBD) system that are very important for keeping pollution levels low and making sure the car meets emission standards. The length of an ESCLW can change based on the automaker, state laws, and type of the vehicle, but it gives owners peace of mind about problems with emissions.

Federal Emission Control System Warranty
All vehicles are eligible for Federal Emission Control System Warranty. This warranty is issued in accordance with the U.S. Federal Clean Air Act. The Emission related parts covered under the Federal Warranty are listed under the Emission Warranty  Parts List.

GM will reimburse you for your expenses, including diagnostic charges, up to the amount of GM’s suggested retail price for parts and labor charges based on GM’s recommended time allowance for the warranty repair and the geographically appropriate hourly labor rate. You must take the replaced part and pay receipts to an authorized GM dealer for repayment in such emergencies.
The lack of availability of warranted parts or a repair not being complete for over 30 days from the time the vehicle is initially presented to the dealer for repair constitutes an emergency. Emission-related defects in the emission parts listed here are covered under the Emission Control System Warranty.

Also covered by this Warranty are hoses, switches, sensors, solenoids, gaskets, seals, wiring harnesses and connectors used with components on the Emission Warranty parts list. Emission-warranted parts specified in your maintenance schedule that require scheduled replacement are covered up to their first replacement interval or the applicable emission warranty coverage period, whichever comes first. If failure of one of these parts fails another part, both will be covered under the Emission Control System Warranty. For detailed information concerning specific parts covered by these emission control system warranties, ask your dealer.

Replacement Parts

The emission control systems of your vehicle were designed, built, and tested using genuine GM parts* and the vehicle is certified as conforming with applicable federal and California emission requirements. Accordingly, it is recommended that any replacement parts used for maintenance or for the repair of emission control systems be new, genuine GM parts. The warranty obligations are not dependent upon the use of any particular brand of replacement parts. The owner may elect to use non-genuine GM parts for replacement purposes. Use of replacement parts which are not of equivalent quality may impair the effectiveness of emission control systems. If other than new, genuine GM parts are used for maintenance replacements or for the repair of parts affecting emission control, the owner should assure himself/ herself that such parts are warranted by their manufacturer to be equivalent to genuine GM parts in performance and durability. Genuine GM parts,” when used in connection with GM vehicles, means parts manufactured by or for GM, designed for use on GM vehicles, and distributed by any division or subsidiary of GM.

Maintenance and Repairs

Maintenance and repairs can be performed by any qualified service outlet; however, warranty repairs must be performed by an authorized dealer except in a situation where the vehicle owner is significantly inconvenienced and a warranted part or a warranty station is not reasonably available to the vehicle owner. In a situation where the vehicle owner is significantly inconvenienced, and an authorized dealer is not reasonably available, repairs may be performed at any available service establishment or by the owner, using any replacement part. Cadillac will consider reimbursement for the expense incurred, including diagnosis, not to exceed the manufacturer’s suggested retail price for all warranted parts replaced and labor charges based on Cadillac’s recommended time allowance for the warranty repair and the geographically appropriate labor rate. A part not being available within 10 days or a repair not being completed within 30 days constitutes a significant inconvenience. Retain receipts and failed parts in order to receive compensation for warranty repairs reimbursable due to these situations. If you are in a situation where you are significantly inconvenienced and it is necessary to have repairs performed by other than a Cadillac dealer and you believe the repairs are covered by emission warranties, take the replaced parts and your receipt to a Cadillac dealer for reimbursement consideration. This applies to both the Federal Emission Defect Warranty and Federal Emission Performance Warranty. Receipts and records covering the performance of regular maintenance or other repairs (such as those outlined earlier) should be retained in the event questions arise concerning maintenance. These receipts and records should be transferred to each subsequent owner. GM will not deny warranty coverage solely on the absence of maintenance records. However, GM may deny a warranty claim if a failure to perform scheduled maintenance resulted in the failure of a warranty part.

Claims Procedure
As with the other warranties covered in this booklet, take your vehicle to any authorized Cadillac dealer facility to obtain service under the emission warranty. This should be done as soon as possible after failing an EPA-approved I/M test or a California smog check test, or at any time you suspect a defect in a part. Those repairs qualifying under the warranty will be performed by any Cadillac dealer at no charge. Repairs which do not qualify will be charged to you. You will be notified as to whether or not the repair qualifies under the warranty within a reasonable time, not to exceed 30 days after receipt of the vehicle by the dealer, or within the time period required by local or state law. The only exceptions would be if you request or agree to an extension, or if a delay results from events beyond the control of your dealer or GM. If you are not so notified, GM will provide any required repairs at no charge. In the event a warranty matter is not handled to your satisfaction,
