Extended Warranty

Has anyone purchased the extended? Are their different ones? What's the cost? Also does GM offer prepaid maintenance agreements?

GM is currently offering 3 years of free Goodwrench maintenance on any 2010 year model here in Canada. I don't know about the U.S., but I'm assuming it's the same deal.

Extended warranties, however, are a scam. Chances are by the time your warranty is over you'll be wanting to change the car or add some power to it.

GM does offer extended coverage at purchase time (or any time within the original warranty) here is the states. AAA also offers it in some states. My credit union also has it.

i can see extending it to maybe 5 years. But past that you dont know if you will have the car crash it etc. And their warranties are not a cure all anyways.

I think he's talking about the dealer add on type, not the kind you purchase after your car's new warranty runs out. But they are a scam. It's just a way for finance people at dealerships to make bigger comissions off you. Search edmunds or this site for stories from people who used to be the back room finance guys and they will tell youuts money down the toilet

You can buy a GM ext warranty during purchase here in Canada. When we leased my wife's Cobalt for 4 yrs we knew the orig warranty would run out before we ended lease so we grabbed it.

Not all extended warranties are scams.

http://www.gmprotectionplan.com/

Is a good example of one that is legit.

There are also SOME of the aftermarket ones that are legit as well.
The FTC took care of most of the scam warranty places last week thankfully.

I honestly still don't see the point of buying an extended warranty. I think most of us are just WAITING for the day the warranty runs out so we can start doing all sorts of crazy things to this already crazy V8.

Agree that is legit. Believe it or not it is negotiable also. I had it on my Z71 Tahoe 2003 model. I even had $0 deductible and it payed for itself.

The only Extended Warranty I'd ever buy is on my g/f. And that's only if she could be replaced with a better, hotter one.

Girlfriend 2.0 - interesting upgrade. It would not be compatible with the operating system of my Wife v1.0 though, which I've had installed for nearly 14 years.

Duh - If you get Girlfriend 2.0, and upgrade to Wife 2.0, they should be fully compatible and run extremely well together.

I can see that might work for some. In my case though, I have dependent sub-systems and routines that are specific to my Wife v1.0 operating system. At this point, it would be too costly too upgrade.

That's not a scam, just a safe bet!

If it is a Factory Warranty it is Not a Scam...Beware of others off brands however. I currently have on on My Suburban and HHR that is a True Bumper to Bumper everything covered including normal maintenance and wear and tear items, used many times for small things and it is a 0$ deductible.
In todays economy, I make good money but still a $400 repair bill takes a huge chunk outta my Golf and Steak eating....lol
Some of the good ones, use the rule of 78's on a refund if you trade or sell or total the car or truck and you get a portion refunded to you.
Some of the bad ones said if you never use it you get a full refund...they are outta business. HMMMMM!
Investigate and compare and do some shopping, cheaper is not always better.
They are well worth the investment, and as a Long time GM for a chevy dealer, when i used to appraise cars I would give a higher trade value to one with a warranty, because all problems usually got fixed right away instead of procrastinating and having that problem effect something else.
But the decision is always yours not mine...

Got the GM Major Guard, aka bumper to bumper, $0 deduc., 7yr/56K. (I average only 5/6K a year) Cost was $1440 @ purchase.I believe it is the right choice for me. My last new car was the 97 Monte Carlo, I only put 87K on. I still be driving my Monte for the snow days.
