Coverage Mile After Mile

One of the greatest benefits that comes with purchasing a new vehicle is knowing you’re covered by the manufacturer’s bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. But what happens when that warranty period is over? What if you could have that same coverage for even longer?

That’s where the new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac optional Extended Limited Warranty comes in.* Available exclusively for new GM vehicles, it includes everything the manufacturer’s standard bumper-to-bumper limited warranty covers — but for longer. And, the Extended Limited Warranty is provided directly by General Motors, so you can feel confident you’re covered by a company you trust.

How It Works

When you purchase a new GM vehicle, you automatically receive the standard manufacturer’s bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. But now you have the option to choose a longer coverage with the Extended Limited Warranty.

It’s important to note that the Extended Limited Warranty is not the same as a Protection Plan (also known as an Extended Vehicle Service Contract). Protection Plans, which have been offered in the marketplace for years, provide coverage for failure of certain parts. The new Extended Limited Warranty, however, provides full bumper-to-bumper coverage, including items not always covered by a Protection Plan.

You typically have the option to get a Protection Plan either at the time of vehicle purchase or some time later during your ownership journey (subject to mileage restrictions). The Extended Limited Warranty, however, is only available at the time you purchase your new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle. Ask your dealer how you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having a longer warranty coverage on your new vehicle. Your wallet will thank you.


*The Extended Limited Warranty is not available on vehicles sold in California, Florida, Hawaii, Maine, Minnesota or Missouri.
