    Your dealer should be able to check warranty availability by running a check on your VIN. That will tell them when it was originally put into service. Good luck.

    Yes, the warranty clock starts running as soon as the car is originally purchased. A 2004 could have been purchased in late '03.

    Become a supporting member and do a vin check in the cts-v thread. You will be able to tell when you warranty will expire.

    Re: call me retarded...but I need help

    you are probably out of warranty. My car was built on 04/04 and sold on 04/07.

    Unless you car was sold in december of 2004 you are out of warranty, If not get your butt into the dealer.

    And also see about getting a "certified" gm extended warranty, they run around 1500$ for 2 more years.

    I got the a 2 year for 2100$ since im out of warranty but they are doing prob 1500$ of work right off the bat so its worth it for me.

    yes, call the dealership and ask them about an extended warranty since you bought the car there. They might hook you up on a deal.

    My dealer got me a 2 year/36k, 12 month payment no interest warranty.

    It ran like 2100$ but it will save me alot. Sounds like you need something similar.

    Or there is an advertiser here, get the shortest possible warranty and then wait a month and have them fix everything. You are still going to have a scrap at the dealership. they will say "oh that thunk is normal"...

    You will need bumper to bumper to cover that thunk and 3rd light.

    Check your trunk shocks.

    GO TO THE V FORUM AND GET A FULL VIN RUN. IT WILL TELL YOU EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN DONE. Oh and cough up some cash for a membership here

    called the dealership lastnight an getting the GMPP warrenty for 2200 for 2 years, 30k miles. does this sound right or high?

    also, thats 12 month payments of 180 w/ 0% interest with 10% down ( 240 ) also the guy told me they dont need to run my credit for extended warrentys. that seems goofy....
