    warranty

    I have an 08 ext. The warrany is about to expire in november. I have 51,000. What are your thoughts and suggestions on extended warranties. Are they worth it? I bought the tire warranty and never had problems so that was a waste.

    Re: warranty

    The only extended warranty I would buy (if you qualify) is GM Major Guard: http://www.gmprotectionplan.com/majorguard.html

    It is more expensive than 3rd party warranties but works exactly the same way and is as solid as your original warranty.

    Re: warranty

    ^ Yeah that's about right ... it really depends on what vehicle you have, how many miles, model year, etc.

    There's no set price, you can shop for it around GM dealerships the same way you shop for a car. It's usually (but not necessarily) a little cheaper if you package it as part of purchasing a used vehicle that's about to go out of warranty.

    Re: warranty

    I just bought a GMPP warranty for my 09 ESV. I was about a month away from the BtB expiring. The longest extension I could get was 4 years. A 4yr/40,000 mile ($200 deductible) extension was just under $2200.

    Re: warranty

    My 2010 had 32k on it and only 18 months remaining on the BtB warranty in March of 2013 when I purchased it. Being that I have a company truck to commute back and forth to work in and only drive occasionally I elected to go with the Max Time plan instead of the Max Miles plan and purchased the EasyCare TotalCare that will carry me for 72 months or 75k miles with a $100 deductible for $2,200. I'm not sure if I got a good deal or not but it seemed reasonable to me considering the cost for simple repairs on these vehicles.

    GMPP is not the same as a factory warranty, it's a great warranty but it's not like a factory warranty. All you have to do is call several dealerships in or out of your state, you will find a great price on that product. You do have to have the GMPP warranty in place a certain number of months and miles prior to the expiration of your factory warranty. It can be purchased at nearly any time prior to the expiration of your factory warranty, you do not need to purchase GMPP warranty at the time you buy a car.

    GMPP offers many levels of warranty coverage. From the way it was explained to me, the highest level Major Guard coverage I was referring to is essentially the same as the factory warranty one would receive with a CPO vehicle, which itself is basically an extension of the vehicle's existing warranty.

    Was I misinformed?

    Re: warranty

    I believe GMPP Major Guard is the warranty one would receive with a CPO vehicle, but it is not an extension of the factory warranty. A better description might be "after the factory warranty". It's a great warranty, but not Gold Key that's for sure.

    My Cadillac service advisor told me it's TOTALY waste of money to get a extended warranty.
    I have known him for 6 years.

    Re: warranty

    Get it, Get it, Get it you wont be sorry it is worth every penny.

    My dad did not teach me much, but when I was 16 in 95' and he bought a 95' Jeep Grand Cherokee I saw him buy the extended warranty and I saw him get so much use out of it. I saw that it only added 36$ a month to the car payment and I have had it on everyone of my cars since than and I never regret it and got over triple my money out of it.

    no its not, I got the 100k mile meaning 50k more w 4 years 100 ded major guard. I got good use out of it I paid $2200 and I paid around $120 a month for 2 years financed it. I must have used it for over 9k the major expense was a new radio, catalytic converter, starter, master cylinder, 4x fuel injectors, heated seat module, axle front piece, door actuators all 4, xenon light ballast, some o2 sensors and this is what I can remember. So it is well worth it. I even got reimbursed 35$ a day for a rental car i had to get. It also puts your resell value of your truck you can transfer it. Its like owning a new truck again. If you have a AWD truck the transmission goes it can cost over 4k to fix and AWDs do go more often. My last 03' ESV the major expense my GMPP cover on that was a new transmission and radio as well because the DVD nav was working incorrectly.

    Your service advisor is not psychic so he can't tell you the future but my service advisor told me laughing Mr Demeter I see that you got good use out of your extended warranty you milked it for every dollar. All I gave him was $100.00 every time. The only thing it does not cover is cosmetics like faded badges, belts and hoses. which is almost never to change and if so it would cost 50$ - $100.00

    My clutch slave failed, $100 deductible and GMPP covered that and a couple of power steering pumps, a rack and other things. It was a good thing for me. Best part was, while the slave was replaced the tech put in the LS7 clutch and fly wheel that was in my trunk. ---------- For $1,500 my wife's town and country is covered for 8/80 with rental and trip interruption. Like a Chrysler isn't going to blow a trans after the main warranty runs out.

    I cannot agree with that statement. Some warranties on things like TV's and etc. might be a waste but with a $75k+ vehicle the warranty could pay for itself in one trip to repair shop dealer, stealer or Indy.
