Default Catalytic Converter warranty question

Does anyone know off hand what the warranty is for catalytic converters in MA? My dad has a 2007 Legacy which just crapped out and it turns out both catalytic converters are blocked and need to be replaced. I've seen various things online, some people say its 8y/80,000mi and some says its double that at 15y/150k.

The Federal Emissions Warranty for catalytic converters is 8 years, 80,000 miles:

Yup if he bought it in MA then it is a PZEV and the warranty is 15yr/150K. My wife has an 05 OB that had the cats crap out after 100K and they were replaced under warranty. We bought the car in MA.

Hmm, I'll have to check on that, thanks guys. A subie mechanic friend said the the 15yr/150k mile warranty ended with 2005 models, is that the case? I'm pretty sure my dad's legacy is PZEV since it has 2 catalytic converters.

The last I heard they changed it to 8yrs/88,000 miles which up till a year ago it was 8yrs/80,000 but they added 10% for the speedo not being totally accurate
