Five Years / 100,000 Miles !!!

Posted by ifitsgotanengine on September 6, 2006


Finally. GM announced today that every 2007 GM vehicle would ship with a five year/100,000 mile warranty.

Could this be a step back to the path of profitability?

We can only hope.

It’s interesting to me that I found out about this via an e-mail from someone at Hass MS&L, GM’s marketing firm. Here’s a copy of the email I received. Did anyone else out there receive a similar note?

Hi, IIGaE. We’re trying to let people know about a major announcement from GM today. We thought you and your readers would be interested.

GM is extending its powertrain warranty to 5 years or 100,000 miles on all vehicles. The warranty is fully transferable and includes roadside assistance.

GM came to this decision in large part due to customer feedback it received on its FastLane blog. For more info, please see:

And let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for your time,
