I just dodged an $8,000 repair bill and they did not replace 2 injectors @ $815 each plus labor. I understand the junk mail warranty - I get them also. With the problems on these trucks, it would seem an extended warranty would be justified.

Maybe not. Thanks.

I have an '07 1-ton dually. I purchased the GM Major Guard warranty just before mine went out of the factory warrant. You can choose the number of miles and deductible. Since I only had a little over 30K miles after 5 yrs., I chose 40K miles for 4 more yrs. with a 25 buck deductible. It cost a little over $2,000 and the dealer did a mandatory inspection prior to the sale. It's not an aftermarket insurance policy, but a OEM GM factory bumper to bumper warrant.

IMO just put $1,000-$2,000 (or more) in savings & youll have it for a raining day.
Extended warrantys arent worth the cost. & if you do want A extended warranty get the GM 1 not from a 3rd party company.

Remember they are not really warranty's but repair insurance. The companies price them so that they will make money on the average one. A few they will loose money on but on most they will make a good profit. Find out how much they want and put that money aside for repairs and you will be ahead of the game.

Agreed. Just set the money aside and put it towards a potential repair.

I spent $2K on a GM extended warranty and it's been useless. When my transmission lines went out I ended up having to do them myself anyway. The local dealer didn't want to do the job because GMPP doesn't pay them enough. They would only take the work if I paid the regular shop rate. Neither GMPP, nor GM Customer Service would do a thing to help me get it fixed under the warranty. This was the extended "bumper-to-bumper"/Major Guard warranty under which they are absolutely covered. Complete breach of contract, but they know you're not going to expend the resources to take them to court. It was an absolute waste of money...
