8 year/80K mile Warranty - We all have it!

Just though I would share -

All cars 95 and newer have a 8 year / 80,000 mile warranty for major emmision components:

What Are Specified Major Emission Control Components?

There are three specified major emission control components, covered for the first 8 years or 80,000 miles of vehicle use on 1995 and newer vehicles:

* Catalytic converters.
* The electronic emissions control unit or computer (ECU).
* The onboard emissions diagnostic device or computer (OBD).

Federally mandated (EPA):

Would this include O2 sensors and the MAF?

I do not think it includes those sensors, at least not to 8 years/80K miles. I believe it does cover them for a certain amount of time but you should reference the link for verification.
