Noticed that California's cars get a 7 year/80,000 mile emissions warranty(at least for the 2.8l engine) Meaning, your MAF sensor as well as catlytic converter are covered under this warranty. Why can't any other state get this type of coverage?? anyone know?? Just looking to see if anyone else knows the difference. thanx!

Because California has CARB - California Air Resources Board also known as the environmental nazi's that basically mandate the warranty coverage. They have the most strict air pollution laws in the USA.

yup yup, alot of NE states follow closely, like CT has some strict emissions. They don't care if your car has brakes or not, but if it runs good your golden.

That also why buying certain Model/Makes cars will cost you more to buy in CA vs. Other US States!

Yeah, I can understand them costing a little more. I just think that we all should get the same warranty! we are in the same country!
