  • There may be a diagnosis fee, which is reimbursed if the repair is determined to be covered by the dealer's warranty (otherwise, diagnosis fees are not refundable)
  • The dealer will discuss the next steps for the repair (whether parts need to be ordered, expected timing, etc.)
  • Rental/loaner cars vary by dealer — the dealer will discuss availability and options

Q&As


If I sell my car, does the new vehicle limited warranty transfer to the new owner?

Yes. If the limited warranty is still active, it will transfer to the new owner.

Is there anything that will void my warranty?

Your limited warranty could be voided if the systems and parts under warranty are damaged by any of the following:

  • Damage due to accident, misuse or alteration
  • Damage or corrosion due to environment, chemical treatments or aftermarket products
  • Damage due to insufficient or improper maintenance
  • Damage due to contaminated, improper or poor-quality fuel
  • Damage due to impact (e.g., flying debris)

Are GM Accessories covered under my vehicle’s warranty?

If the GM Accessory was installed prior to taking delivery (at the time of purchase), it will be covered under the applicable new vehicle warranty (Bumper-to-Bumper, Powertrain, etc.). 

If the GM Accessory was installed after vehicle delivery, or replaced under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, it will be covered, parts and labor, for the balance of the applicable portion of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, but in no event less than 12 months/unlimited miles. 

GM Accessories sold over the counter, or those not requiring installation, will receive the standard GM Dealer Accessory Warranty of 12 months from the date of purchase, parts only. GM Licensed and Integrated Business Partner (IBP) Accessories are covered under the accessory-specific manufacturer's warranty and are not warrantied by GM or its dealers.

If I have a service issue that I think is covered under warranty, what do I need to do?

  1. Take your vehicle to any authorized dealer facility to obtain service.
  2. Those repairs qualifying under the warranty will be performed at no charge.
  3. Repairs that do not qualify will be charged to you.

What if a warranty concern is not handled to my satisfaction?

For best results, adhere to the following protocol: 

  1. Discuss your concern with a member of dealer management. Normally, concerns can be quickly resolved at that level. If the matter has already been reviewed with the sales, service or parts manager, contact the owner of the dealer facility or the general manager.
  2. If after contacting a member of dealer management, it appears your concern cannot be resolved by the dealer without further help, contact the Customer Assistance Center by calling 1-800-462-8782. Have the following information available: Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), dealer name and location; date of service; present mileage.

When contacting the Customer Assistance Center, remember that your concern will likely be resolved at a dealer's facility. That is why we suggest you follow Step One first if you have a concern.
