I think too many people are trying to keep the factory warranty valid to worry about an extended one.noz34me said:Kind of goes along with my last "how many miles" question.
Looks like there's not many people that are out of warranty
Anybody spring for the extended variety, and if so, GM or aftermarket? What kind of prices are you seeing?
Unfortunately I have to agree with you on that one. Service is one of the primary reasons GM struggles like it does with its reputation on reliability. My friend had a transmission wind and grind on his sequoia and they completly replaced the entire thing and had him out of there in two days.Groucho said:Another reason I opted for the GM extended warranty- my last GM product, a 1991 S10 4.3l V6 pickup, attempted to hurl a connecting rod though the block, which is Very Bad thing. The truck had 95k miles on it at the time.
As I noted, this car will never see the inside of a GM service department unless another catastrophic failure occurs. It has been my experience that the level of incompetency and a general atmoshpere of not-giving-a-sh1t at these dealers is rivaled only by the Post Office and DMV.
Holy Smokes!GTODEALER said:Here is my list of "minor" problems.....
3 c.v. shafts
2 stub shafts
1 slave cylinder
1 power steering pump
1 ignition key cylinder
1 rear sway bar link
1 rear sway bar
..... that's all I can remember, granted I actually drove my car the way I felt it should have been driven, it didn't do all that bad. Trust me when I say that all cars are gonna have their problems, and I'm not the only one that has had issues.
GTODEALER said:I agree Blue, I really didn't specify that my car had tons of crap done to it and was drag raced regularly..... that's one of the reasons that I said it wasn't that bad, I wouldn't say I abused the car... I just found all of the weak links.
And, btw, I didn't get an extended warranty for the simple reason of modding my car, if you do this it's pointless. If I was going to get an extended warranty from GM, it would be GMPP.
