Since the catalytic converter was introduced in 1974, it's estimated that the devices have kept more than 500 million tons of carbon monoxide and more than 50 million tons each of nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons out of the atmosphere. And that's not the only benefit. Because the catalysts are destroyed by lead, rules mandating lead-free gasoline had to be put in place before the converters could be used. In the U.S., that 1970 decision alone stopped 250,000 tons a year of toxic lead—which can cause mental retardation in children—from being spewed into the air through cars' tailpipes. http://www.thenewenvironmentalist.com/articles_0302/enviro2.html
The Rhode Island Lemon Law applies to new cars, vans, motorcycles or trucks (under 10,000 lbs) sold, leased or registered in Rhode Island, that suffer a nonconformity; a defect or condition that cannot be repaired after four attempts by an authorized manufacturer's dealership. This defect must substantially impair the vehicle’s use, value or safety, and must first occur within the first 12 months or 15,000 miles, whichever comes first. The RI Lemon Law also applies to vehicles that are in the shop for repair thirty (30) or more calendar days during the first year. http://www.lemonlaw.com/ri-lemon-law.html BE SURE the car has a functioning catalytic converter!
