buying gto, warrenty?

I will probably buy a GTO today

2006 Used Pontiac GTO at Fincher's Texas Best Auto & Truck Sales in Houston, TX, IID 5437849

How is the Pontiac Warrenty these days knowing GM's situation. Can I extend the Warrenty on the GTO? could I buy a new warrenty?

Thanks

Perhaps you should talk to the dealer. According to the ad it has a 'factory warranty'. I'm sure they could give you any details about the existing one and/or extending it.

Thanks. Also, honestly, how reliable has your GTO been?

It should come 12/12 bumper to bumper I bought a 3/36 extension. I've been very happy with mine so far.

Gm is back in the green and has paid back 100% with interest all the money they got from Taxpayers. I just got the letter from them this week.

When I bought mine a little over a year ago, I bought an extended warranty 7 yr 100,000mile "Platinum" warranty. I think I paid about $3000 or so for it. The car only had 22,000 miles on it. The more miles it has the more expensive the extended warranty will be. Mine covers basically everything thats not a "wear" part, like shocks, brakes, etc.. $50 deductible and they just fix it. Has come in handy a few times so far. These cars are reliable but when they do break down it can be pricey..especially at the dealer. But I can take mine to any repair facility that specializes in our type of cars they just have to call to get approval before fixing.

Sorry for going off topic, but actually, GM is being a little deceptive on this. The in fact did pay off one loan with interest, five years early. But they used money from the TARP bailout to pay it off. They basically took money out of one pocket and put in the other. Here is the story on what they really did if anyone is interested...

I wouldn't even call with their asking price. You can do much better then that. It does have SAP grills and bumpers.... but no 05/06 hood. Also has 17s.

As soon as I saw this I seen it is out of factory warranty. How? Look at the miles... 37,275 Factory ended at 36K. Balance of factory warranty? It expired.. False advertising. Unless a GMPP was taken out on that car before the factory 3/36 expired a GMPP is not attainable, as a GMPP must be taken out before the original warranty expires. At best an extended warranty from one of many would be the only way to go. Meaning you will have to shop for one or have the dealer help you.

Incidentally the factory warranty begins the first day the car is put into service which more than likely at 4 years out it probably was.

Did GM Pay Back Its Loan? Not Really - GLG News
As long as the FEDS retain majority ownership status, right now they own 61%, GM can burn in hell. I do not see the FEDS relinquishing control, they are in the process of trying to acquire private enterprise one sector at a time. KUDOS to FORD, I am not a FORD guy but I would buy a new FORD over GM or Chrysler until the FEDS give it back. I do not see this happening at least before 2012 if we are all lucky.
