What is the factory warranty on a new Buick in 2020? 3 years or 36,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper repairs and 5 years or 60,000 miles of powertrain repairs are covered by the Buick standard factory warranty in 2020.
It was reduced 12 months compared to the 2019 model year.
Consumers can still get the longer warranty, even if the sale occurs in 2020, as long as the vehicle is a new 2019 model.

What do the Buick Extended Warranty Options cover?
Buick only offers one extended warranty, and it’s one of the best – most comprehensive – warranties in the automotive industry.
The Buick Platinum Extended Warranty covers over 1000 components including the engine, transmission, drive axle, heating, cooling, electrical, and everything else on the vehicle except the exclusions listed on the bottom of page 4 in the Sample Plan below.
How much is the repair copay?
That’s why it’s the best.
The Buick Platinum Warranty does not have a copay. Buick will pay the full cost of repairs including parts, labor, and rental car.
How much does the Buick Platinum Extended Warranty cost?
Retail Market Value
$0 Deductible: 2 Years | 24,000 Miles: $2100 3 Years | 36,000 Miles: $3100 4 Years | 48,000 Miles: $3750 5 Years | 60,000 Miles: $3950
Prices may vary by vehicle specs, usage, location, and start date.
If you are a long term owner and you buy the longest plan and you drive about 12,000 miles per year, then it’s worth it.
The odds are in your favor to have a return on your investment in the extended warranty. Car technology is advancing, and technicians need specialized training. The cost of labor continues to rise: currently near $150 per hour. Remember, the Buick Platinum Warranty length is in addition to the 3 year 36,000 mile factory warranty.
That means you will be covered for 8 years or 96,000 miles in total if you buy the 5 year 60,000 mile plan.
Chances are you will need at least four repairs during that time with a minimum average repair bill of $1500 considering the escalating cost of automotive repairs.
That equals an estimated total claims payout of $6000!
Where can I buy the Buick Platinum Warranty?
Buy your extended warranty from the same dealer you want to return to for repairs.
Dealerships have a monetary incentive to provide repeat clients with 100% satisfaction in the service drive.
Buick monitors repeat clients closely and dealer bonuses are linked to your experience.
This is one of the primary reasons Buick only offers the Platinum warranty with the $0 deductible now: because it's better for owners.
