Exclamation GM Adds Used-Car Powertrain Warranty

GM Adds Used-Car Powertrain Warranty
The Daily Auto Insider
Friday, February 2, 2007

February 2007 1 of 1

General Motors announced that it will include a fully transferable five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty on some of its used vehicles, the Associated Press reported.

The new warranty will be effective March 5 on 2002 to 2006 GM certified used vehicles sold by GM's U.S. dealers, the automaker said. GM also said it will add Cars.com to its online vehicle-listing program.

The powertrain warranty covers more than 900 components related to the engine, transmission, transfer case and final drive assemblies on used Buicks, Chevrolets, GMCs, Oldsmobiles and Pontiacs sold in the U.S. Those used vehicles also come with three-month, 3,000-mile bumper-to-bumper comprehensive limited warranties, the story said.

The powertrain warranty coverage, effective from a vehicle's original in-service date, includes a 24-hour roadside assistance plan valid through five years or 100,000 miles, whichever happens first.

GM said it will begin a similar program later this year for Saturn certified preowned vehicles.

Cadillac, Saab and Hummer operate separate certified preowned vehicle programs. Each has a six-year, 100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty effective from a vehicle's in-service date.

GM announced last year that beginning with its 2007 models, it was including an enhanced powertrain warranty of five years or 100,000 miles on all new light-duty vehicles.

The company's basic bumper-to-bumper coverage remained the same at three years or 36,000 miles on Chevrolet, GMC, Pontiac and Saturn brands and four years or 50,000 miles on its premium Buick, Cadillac, Hummer and Saab brands.

The only difference between the powertrain warranty included with the 2007 models and the used vehicles is there will be no courtesy transportation available to owners in the event of warranty repairs.

That's excellent incentive to buy used...but I'm concerned it could cost some big bucks in the long run.
