How much does the 100,000 mile warrenty cost. Does it cover the hardtop?

Is it worth it?

Try customer relations at you dealer. Usually they will sale it to you as long as it has less than 24,000 miles on it, less yhan 3 years old.

Try the Internet

There are places that sell extended warranties that are supposed to be equal to the dealers, but they are less expensive. Had I known about these places I would have gotten the 100000 mile warranty. As it is, my 60000 mile extended warranty is about $600.00 more than the 100000 mile warranty offered by some of the site on the internet. Make sure you check them out. Make sure you get everything in writing.

I like the non-dealer outfits for extended warranties. But it appears that the top may not be covered with these non-dealers. This one maybe worth paying the extra bucks for the dealer's coverage. make sure they put it in writing that they cover the top. Negotiate with them. They get these from the same place as the non-dealers, they just mark it up a lot higher to rape us. I never got one for my SSR but have one on my Range Rover.

When I checked with my dealer my SSR was just over 1 year old and I could no longer get the 100000 mile warranty. The longest they would give me was a 7 yr. 70000 mile warranty. When I asked the price it was $6995.00. I went on the internet and got the same warrany for $1450.00. It does cover the mechanical part of the convertible top.

Hook, line and sinker

Warranties are only good if a good company stands behind them. At my dealership, we only sell GMPP warranties. No after market. With the aftermarket, at least in California, if the company goes out of business, you're SOL. Theres only two that I would consider, GMPP and GMPP.
Mike :cool
PS: We don't RAPE anyone. We negotiate with the customer, and we have the highest closure rate on warrant sales. :)

Hi Ken, I went with Warranty Direct. You can go to their website: www.warrantydirect.com and all the information is there. The gentleman I spoke with on the phone was Keith. His direct line is: 888-241-8464 ext. 1411.The warranty is the California MBI and since mine was over a year old the longest I could get was 6 yr. (from the date I purchased the policy), 75000 total miles. My cost was $1437.00. I also asked my service rep at Power Chevrolet and he said they had no problems with Warranty Direct.

What's a GMPP warrenty? I don't want to have to negotiate with a third party. I thought these extented warrenties were just like the GM warrenty, where I could take it in to any dealer and they'd fix stuff.

Also, what's the cost? A ball park would be fine.

Gmpp

A GMPP warranty is a General Motors Protection Plan. You can take yor GM vehicle to any GM dealer and they will repair all items. It is an extension of the factory 3-36 warranty. There are no exclusions. Speaking of aftermarket warranties. Be very careful. Some warranties require that you pay up front, then you are re-imbursed for items that they may or may not pay for. (Like a medical plan, they will pay for the procedure, but not the full amount). On the re-imbursment programs, it sometimes take several months to get your money back. Additionally, with GMPP, it also extended your roadside assistance for the duration of the warranty. If you buy a 7-70,000 warranty, your roadsiside assistance is good for 7-70,000.
Now class, are there any more questions? :)

GMPP - Good Advice by Mike!

Watch Six, Mike:

All you extended warranty shoppers better check out Mike's post. :nono He is exactly right. I'm old service writer. We had lots of trouble with some companies. Some even demanded that we use rebuilt parts, alternators, starter motors, etc. Had to have advance approval first. Very time consuming, tech waiting, etc. As they say, "you get what you pay for"!

There's the one in Temecula this Fri. evening I'm going to. I kind of liked the one you mentioned about meeting at your shop for lunch and then maybe caravaning over to the beach. Axiom mentioned something about a weinie roast at the beach. Maybe we could combine them. Sounds like it would be a lot of fun.

I compared the GMPP, the CarMax extended warranty, and Wynn's. Wynn confirmed with me by phone that hard power top was covered. It also offered roadside assistance and the best price overall (6 yrs 90K). Wish I had had the website offered above to compare additional plans - thanks for posting it for future reference.

I got mine at the time of sale and it is a GM sponsored 100,000 mile bumper to bumper zero deductible. $2,800.00. I checked with another dealer several months later and it is in the GM computer system. :cool :cool

Thanks, I was wanting to know what price to expect.

How many years? I'll run out of time on the warrenty before I'll use up the mileage.
