In Topic: Noisy, Smelly Cat On Focus St170

Doesn't the CAT have a 60k mile guarantee or ten years? Says something in the manual.

Probably does, mine's done 105,000! Oops! I have pretty much rebuilt this car since buying it nearly 2 years ago, fingers crossed this will be the last repair for a while!
