 GM 100,000 mile warranty

We are thinking of updating to a new mini van from our 02 Chevy Venture. What with the lousy reliability records of our domestic cars, I was leaning toward an import. A couple days ago I saw the new GM warranty program, I read it and re read it. Looks like they warrant everything that normaly never breaks down, like the engine, tranny, etc. No mention of the stuff that keeps you broke, like air conditioner, electric doors, windows, wheel sensors, etc. Come on GM make it a real bumper to bumper warranty then you'll get my attention. Frank.

It's a viscous circle Frank, to keep the prices down and sales up, they have to cut corners and force parts suppliers to do the same, then they have reliability issues that mean reduced sales and warranty costs still kill the bottom line.

I was looking at a new car 4 years ago and my sister and her husband were also shopping for much the same thing at the same time, so we were comparing notes.

We both wanted a higher end small sedan. They bought the Caddy, I bought the BMW. My car was covered, bumper to bumper for 4 years, including scheduled maintenance. THere's had the basic GM warranty. Mine has needed nothing BUT scheduled maintenance in 4 years, they gave theirs back this spring because they had such a problem with it.

There was only about $5,000 difference in price between them new, but they got about half of what mine is worth when they traded it back in at the same dealer they bought it from.

Gee, I wonder why GM is having such a big problem?

Best of luck.

100,000 mile warranty?

That would have equaled 9 transmissions on my 91 Chevy patrol car.

GM = JUNK! After the hosing I took on a new 1993 Suburban K2500 4 x 4, I will NEVER own a GM product again! At least not until they pay me back the $8,000 hit I took trading it in on my current Dodge 2500 Cummins pickup as well as a 100% bumper to bumper NO COST 100,000 mile EVERYTHING covered including comparable size SUV rental car to get me around while it spends much of its life in the shop. Same thing applies to Ford!

We did check out a couple "Rice Burners", Honda and Subaru over the weekend. Neither offer any big deal warranty above the domestics, but they both seem to have a pretty good rating far as reliability. One brother in law is on his second Subaru, says he would'nt own anything else. he did have a somewhat major engine problem after warranty, but it was fixed at no charge without any hassle. I'm kind of a simple guy, don't really need 90% of the electronic dodads that car makers seem to think I need, so if they started building 61 Ford Falcons again I'd be the first in line to buy one, simple as a hammer and that's about all you needed to fix one. Frank.

100,000 mile warrenty is BS. First off you get 36,000 bumper to bumper, up to 60,000 to cover some wear parts like the timing belt, then the rest of the 100,000 is for the engine and transmission. Nothing much has changed just some ear candy for a few more miles on the engine and trans. It is not just GM is all 100,000 warrentys. You got to drive something might as well have 100,000. You could buy a ford they might still be in buisness next year or the government will bail them out with our tax money like Dodge.
Why did they not bail out Enron and give all those people the money that was stolen from them.

just passed 192,000mi on my Geo prizm driving the vicious NJ roads. I think this thing will keep on going until I get bored of it. Of course the only thing GM in this car is that badge, the rest is honest to goodness Toyota.
