How long is the factory warranty on a new Chevrolet?
Chevy Factory Warranty includes 3 years or 36,000 miles of Bumper-to-Bumper repair coverage on all components except normal wear and tear items like wiper blades and carpet.
The engine factory warranty continues up to 60,000 miles on the odometer or 2 years after the basic warranty expires, whichever comes first.
Standard Chevrolet Warranty
Bumper-to-Bumper 3 Years | 36,000 Miles
Powertrain Warranty 5 Years | 60,000 Miles
UPDATE: Chevrolet has streamlined extended warranty options and only offers the bumper-to-bumper Platinum Extended Warranty.
Chevy no longer offers multiple extended warranty tiers or deductible options.
What does the extended warranty cover?
The Chevy Platinum Plan is the most comprehensive factory warranty extension offered.
It covers the cost of repairs for parts and labor on breakdowns of the engine, transmission, turbocharger, supercharger, ride control, electrical, cooling, fuel system, reverse monitoring, power tailgate lock, a/c, power windows, entertainment systems, and all other components except items on the exclusionary list.
What is not covered
Silver No longer available Thank you Chevy! The Platinum Warranty is so much better. The Chevy Silver Plan looked good at first glance, but did not cover nearly as many components as the Platinum Plan and often led to owner frustration of non-covered repairs and out-of-pocket expenses down the road.
It wasn't a bad choice for a base model Cruze, if the price was right, but for a fully loaded Silverado or Traverse the Platinum Plan was easily worth the extra premium.
How much is the repair copay?
UPDATE: The all new Platinum Extended Warranty now has $0 deductible!
Chevy priorly offered three deductible copay options: $0, $100, and $100 disappearing.
The disappearing deductible was appealing because the copay disappeared when returning to the original dealer and was only charged when repairs were done at a different location.
Now, no matter what dealer you choose, the deductible is $0.
When does it begin and end?
Chevy discloses the term differently now too!
Priorly, the length of the extended warranty was stated including the bumper-to-bumper warranty, meaning a 5 year plan would give you 2 extra years after the 3 year bumper-to-bumper warranty expired.
Now Chevy discloses the term in addition to the factory warranty, meaning if you buy a 3 year 36,000 mile extended warranty at zero miles, then you will have 6 years or 72,000 miles of full repair coverage.
How much does the Chevrolet Platinum Warranty cost?
Retail Market Value $0 Deductible: 2 Years | 24,000 Miles: $2015 3 Years | 36,000 Miles: $2900 4 Years | 48,000 Miles: $3540 5 Years | 60,000 Miles: $3770
Prices may vary for commercial and private usage, location of purchase, vehicle model, and equipment.
Will breakdowns caused by aftermarket modifications void my warranty?
Yes. You will void your warranty if non-GM parts are installed without prior approval from the manufacturer.
Is my Platinum Extended Warranty transferable?
You may transfer the extended warranty when you sell your vehicle private party, or you can cancel your plan for a prorated refund when you trade to a dealer.
Mail the following to the Administrator within 30 days of the sale to transfer your Platinum Extended Warranty:
Copy of original application (page 1 in Sample Plan)
