zL1 warranty. That is incredible for a super car.

I was told by my GM salesperson that the Camaro ZL1 will have a 100K power train warranty. That is incredible and it is what sold the car to me, along with everything else

It is by far going to be the best long term value of any sports car for everyday drivers and weekend racers.

I'm pretty sure no one even knows what the warranty will be on the ZL1.

100k mile power train, do current camaro's even get that?


edit: yes they do.

tbh it wouldn't surprise me if it did, but i wonder what the gt500's warranty is.

warranty

I do have a 2011 White Camaro and it does have a 100K warranty. I promised my niece who is going to college next year that she could have it, for dependable transportation. Lucky me. That means I have to get another car.- Camaro ZL1

I actually consider the ZL1 to be the best buy on the market. Get a Super Camaro at a cheaper price than you can buy the additional high performance parts, much cheaper.

The dealers sales people have been given a bum rap. My GM salesperson sold me a 2011 Camaro 1ss with auto trans, premium rims, all at 30k flat, that includes ten percent CA sales tax, everything.

I'm first on the list for the Zl1. We have not talked price but Ithink he knows he will continue to get more business from over the years. GM is trying to be fair to customers, especially with a 100k warranty on a super car.

Holy S#!+ that's a good price on an 11 1SS!

But i must agree there is a HUGE difference between a 100k powertrain and 100k bumper to bumper warranty Either way.. super-cars with 36k miles of bumper to bumper is pretty damn good IMHO...

All GM vehicles have a 100,000-mile warranty. You should take a look at what everyone else offers. It is truly remarkable how inclusive and comprehensive that warranty is, too. GM truly believes in their products, as well they should with the R&D that goes into every vehicle.

I can only paraphrase what my GM salesperson told me. Before I metioned that I wanted to buy one I asked him what was the warranty going to be on the ZL1s, he said that it was going to be a 100k powertrain warranty.

I said that can't be right and he said he was surprised too but it was going to be a 100k. I said, if that is the case then put me down for one and here is my deposit for the car. He seemed a little surprised but then said you are number 1 on the list and gave me a receipt. I put down $900. I was not sure how much cash I had and counted out $940, he gave me back $40 and said $900 was good enough.

I should also add my dealership sells a ton of camaros. In fact before I placed an order for the 2011 camaro they had about 10-15 on the lot. I went back once a week for several weeks and each time they had different camaros, since they sold so many of them.

I'm number one on the dealership list for the ZL1!

yeah 100k, 5 years is the standard warranty Chevy has right now. So it's standard.

Legally speaking, GM and all other car manufacturers do not offer warranties. They are actually limiting their liabilities by reducing your legal rights and conning you into accepting their offer of a limited warranty. Legally, you have a 4 year unlimited milage warranty on all vehicle purchases unless you waive your rights by signing them away, which is what you do when you sign the warranty acceptance papers.

Having said that, most companies will refuse to sell you a vehicle if you don't sign, because they don't want to be responsible for a 4 year unlimited mileage warranty, and they figure that someone that doesn't know their rights will buy it later. Now, if we all just refused to sign, then that would be a different story!

For reference, check out the Uniform Commercial Code, that outlines your warranty rights. It does not apply in Louisiana. Sorry!

y does everyone have a chub on for the 100k warranty, it's still limited to 5 years. 95% of the population does not put 100k on their vehicle in 5 years. your really just getting a 5 yr warranty on your power train. I've always disagreed with this marketing scam. i currently have 2 gm trucks both with the duramax diesel in it, which has had the 100k power train warranty since they came out. one of the trucks is an 02 bought in the fall of 01. it has 95k on it and has been out of warranty for many moons. it needs injectors (due to a faulty design by bosch) but is out of warranty so i have to pay the bill around $4k. if gm was truly confident in their product throw out the year limitation. idk what exactly is going to go bad from just age seals???? ok so dont warranty my leaking transfer case.

i would like to have the option of 0 warranty or just a 30 or 60 day warranty,, but im a tech and always fix my own vehicles anyways,, cars would be very cheap without the warranty costs built into the price.

100,000 mile warranty sounds good, until you do the math. You're right, you'd have to average over 20,000 miles a year for the warranty to make sense. A warranty like Hyundai's 10 year/100,000 mile is a better value to the average consumer.

How many people do you think will put over 20,000 miles a year on their ZL1?

All GM vehicles (including the ZR1) come with the 5-yr/100K powertrain warranty. Why would the ZL1 to be any different...

I've had my SS for almost 2 years now and I barely have 11,000 miles on it. lol

It'll probably be the same for the ZL1, by the time the 5 years are up, it'll have around 50,000 miles.

Just saw that CTS-V also offers this 100K warranty. So, it is a fact!

Why couldn't they offer a 100k warranty on this car. Lets face it how many owners are gonna actually beat on these cars. Most will end up in garages, and will be brought out to cruise around in.

Yes a few will hit the drag strip, and the autocross, but most will never be used for what they were desighned for.

I'm sure the warranty will be just like every other Chevy. 3/36k bumper to bumper with 100k mile powertrain.
