Extended Warranty - Dealer Offered

Postby alanrmeadows [OP] » Jul 21 2021, 8:23pm

I am scheduled to pick up my new 2021 GMC Sierra Denali (1500 6.2L V8 4WD) in a couple of weeks, and I'm considering purchasing an extended warranty offered by the dealership's finance department. Any recommendations on which one I should choose and what cost I should expect.

Thanks

Unless the warranty is thru GM itself, (not thru the dealer and not thru any other third party), I would not buy it. Third party warranties are pretty useless.

Usually the cost of the warranty would easily replace your tranny. If your tranny does not go bad, then you wasted the money.

I guess I'm just thinking about all the things that can go wrong with the display screen, etc. Before I sold my F-150 L*** a few days ago, I had to replace the part that powers the screen. It was $1,100...or something close to that.

GM, in and of itself, does not offer extended service plans anymore. (The term warranty is not used, and that is for a multitude of reasons.) If you were to get one, I would recommend only one of the "warranty tiered plans" offered thru GM's financial arm, Ally, and only them. I think there are 3 levels of coverage. The finance guy will no doubt offer that to you, but first he may push a kinda "dealer internal" service plan/warranty.....but reject that one....like others have said, those are worthless.
If you're a good negotiator, you may be able to get the dealer to throw it in or split it with you. The dealer I bought my truck from threw it in for a 5 star Google review.

Here's the Ally plan website:

In general, is the purchase of one of these warranty tiered plans an overall good financial decision OR is the smart money on rolling the dice? Just seems like a lot of people have a lot of issues with vehicles these days, but that still may not warrant forking over the $$ associated with one of these plans...assuming of course that the dealer isn't willing to negotiate.

Just wait for a call. You'll eventually get one about your extended warranty and then you can buy one. No rush, you'll probably have at least 2 or 3 calls a week.

You can buy a GM Genuine warranty from a number of GM online Dealerships much cheaper. I would find the cheapest one-print it out and have your local dealer meet the price.

You can buy ANYTIME BEFORE the 3year/36,000 miles bumper to bumper is expired.

I could link several dealerships but you can find it out on your own.
