I've been looking into an extended warranty (online) for a Traverse. I don't want to be bombarded with email quotes that might wind up in my spam box. I haven't asked the salesman at the local dealer either.
Has anyone here looked into this at their local dealer and/or purchased an extended warranty program?
Thanks in advance.
Sorry, just trying to keep with the "Coffee House" motif...
When I picked up mine at the dealer last week I didn't know that the extra 3 year warranty was also at supplier price. I think I paid 1600 or 1700 for the extra 3 years because on a much larger vehicle, AWD, extra tranny cooling (I have tow package) my luck would be that something other than powertrain would fail.
Heres something my finance guy said He does and why in his opinion it's worth it. Sure some of it might be sales pitch but the dealer I bought from made this the best experience I have ever had buying a car. They talked to me like they were my brother giving advice to me. No old school dealer tactics, plenty of tips, and the willngness to earn my business no matter what the cost.
My Finance guy stated he also bought the full 68k 6 year coverage. He makes sure every other oil change he brings it to the dealer to do. The primary reason? GM Goodwrench mechanics get paid an extra fee if they find something wrong apprently. They get the part/labor, and a fee for finding and fixing an issue. So as he puts it. If you think there not going to do the entire 128 point inspection and shake and check things think again. They get paid to make your car trouble free as an incentive. Plus should the repair suddely take more than 2 hours they just give you a rental on them. The good inspection even on oil changes is one of the reasons why i decided at least I know I will be covered incase something gets caught. Again that depends on the mechanic of course but if thats true, Ican't think of a better incentive to make sure they are doing 128 point inspections. Your fast oil chnage places SAY they are, but they are usually staffed by kids, bug you for upsells, and do not do a strict run through according to GM specs like they would have you believe. I'll take mine to a GM certified trained mechanic that needs to go down a checklist and gets paid to FIND issues thanks.
Again your results could be differnt, but I don't want to take the chance.
