I owned a 1988 Chevy Beretta. The TSB was for defective paint. I had no warranty at the time. The car was painted for free.

Same with a '96 Cutlass Supreme that I had. It had about 3 TSBs that were taken care of free of charge. Not one cent was ever paid out of my pocket. So with my experience, I have to say "Yes it's free".
