How many have used your warranty?

Our cars are still fairly new, but some have had issues and some have not. I am at 31,000 miles and my 36k warranty will be up, just wondered who had redeemed on their warranty and what was it for?

I used my warranty, but it was the Extended one I bought, not the one that comes with the car. Was for a corroded fusebox. Covered the rental too for 3 days.

At around 7000 miles my breaks were squeeling real bad, brought them in to have them looked at, other than that I haven't used the warranty. I wonder though if you voided your factory warranty with at tune or something if you could still get an extended warranty, prob not.

Stabilitrac problems at ~6k... Clutch/flywheel/Pressure plate/TOB/Slave replaced at 9k miles. Big exhaust leak at manifold to exhaust pipe (stud came out, I couldn't get threads to start myself after trying for an hour, took it in) at ~12k. At about 21k now, and been fine so far since the last issue.

32k miles, no warranty issues. Although my seat levers don't work that well, so I'll probably take it in soon to have them fix that issue.

Used mine to have dealer deposit a spoiler nut inside my trunk lid. I still haven't fished it out.

Timing chain replaced at 35k and the small strips of leather that hold the driver and passenger seat belts had some threads coming loose. Entire leather seat covers for both driver and passenger replaced at 35k miles too.

Jeez, I've used my warranty around 6 times already... all before 36K. I'm at 45K right now and haven't used warranty in last 9K. Maybe our cars age well?

I took my car in for warranty work last Thursday, they did the HVAC update and ordered a part to fix the trunk light. My heated seat complaint they could not duplicate.

Then I found out the bumper-to-bumper expired 9 days earlier, but they still honored it. I thought it should have been the day I closed the deal on the car, but apparantly it isn't.

My airbag light kept coming on for weeks. Took it in twice to get reprogrammed. Turned out to be a bad passenger sensor from setting a heavy back pack on it.

At 0 miles, my trunk lid wouldn't unlatch every time. It took 3-4 presses to get it to open. Dealer adjusted the latch and all is good.

replace the whole BCM due to the service stabilitrak issue (this was a pain, have to bring it back and forth 4 times), replaced a rim (paint pealing off), replacing broken 3rd brake light. The car has 6600 miles on it.

1. Four-pack gauges plugged in. AC belt realigned. Loaner (never driven because they sold it while I had it.)
2. AC belt replaced.
3. AC belt, and harmonic balancer replaced. Check valve installed in heater hose. Differential fluid changed twice on same visit. Four day rental at no cost to me.
4. Transmission occasionally misses 3-4 upshift. Not taking it in until it becomes more frequent.

Glove box wouldn't close without being pushed hard the day I bought it. They ordered a new one and replaced it 11 miles on the odometer.
