Yeah...Isn't that great?? 8 Year/80K emissions warranty saved me from paying for my scion to get a cat replaced.

Glad it worked out for you bro!!

That's great news. Did they tell you what the total cost may have been?

This exact same thing happened to me , leaving the dealer lot!! Truck had 40k , literally 3 miles away from the dealership the check engine light came on, I took it back and they scanned it told me the first right cat was bad and needed to be replaced, I got it done and the total came to like $981 or something like that, luckily it was all covered under the 80k warranty..
