Warranty FYI

Just bought a 2011 Sierra 2500HD Denali. The 5year/100,000mile powertrain warranty only covers against defects in workmanship; not wear and tear. To get full bumper-to-bumper coverage requires purchasing an upgraded warranty. 3year/100,000 mile warranty with a $200 deductible added $1070.

Umm, hate to be the one to break it to you, but I think all factory warranties only cover defects. I don't know of any that cover wear and tear.

Has always been that way. Wear and tear is from use and a normal condition…

GM changed the way they do the powertrain warranty and really limited what they cover compared to when they first started the 100K warranty in 2007. I believe they stopped covering the Hubs and CV's on the 4X4's and limited some of the engine. Maybe a tech can chime in......

It's called "value engineering". Meaning they will remove items that were originally part of the package and charge the same amount or more. Or they will cover less and so to make up the same coverage they have you purchase the extended warranty at an additional charge to cover items that were covered before in the 5/100k warranty.

The finance guy when trying to sell me the extended warranty claims that the only thing the power train 5y/100k covers is lubricated parts..
