When you bring the car in for warranty work, do you get loaner car?

does the dealer give you a loaner vehicle while they fix your car ?

In varies dealer to dealer. However if your car requires overnight work and it is covered by warranty. GM does make provisions for rental cars. Meaning that if it must be kept over night the dealer can arrange a rental car for you and GM reimburses the dealer

I guess they don't have loaner cars on their lots anymore ?

Well when they worked on my car for two weeks, they brought me to enterprise and paid for it. Also they do give out loaners for a couple hours.

I got a loaner car (not a rental) when they were working on my current vehicle a few years ago. Probably depends on the dealer. Either way, you shouldn't be stranded.

4 years ago I got a rental from the dealer for a week. The dealership covered it...they have an arrangement with Enterprise.

When my dealer had my new Camaro in the shop for two days they gave me a brand new Impala as a loaner. While the car sucked compared to the Camaro, I didn't have to pay a dime.

I usually wait outside the post office next door to the dealer and when some idiot leaves their car running, jump in, take it and use it for the day.
Then at the end of the day I'll drop it off (running) at the 7-11 down the road and wait for the next guy to drive it off.
Eventually it winds up back at the post office because these jerks don't shutoff their car and take the keys when they stop at the post office or 7-11.
So, its all good...

fat chance


Locally, which is all I can say for...

Most dealers have rental cars and you can usually guilt them into it. It is a given on an overnight warranty job, yes you get one but if it is just a day job, they will give you one if you push the issue. I took the in laws Durango in for remote start and they gave me a rental... not a loaner. And free remote start but that another story... thanks Chrysler!

The local BWW dealer gives you a loaner. If you bring a BMW in for any service, even oil change, no matter how old or POS the BMW is, you get a brand new BMW. I think the only ones they don't loan are M cars and the 6 and 7 series. The rest the do, even the Z4.

My dealer does rentals, usually mid class GM. I had an Aura once and a Equinox once.
