Chevrolet offers one of the longest powertrain warranties of any American car company. The warranties are completely transferable, with no limitations, to any subsequent owners during the warranty period. There is no charge to transfer any warranty.
- The Chevrolet complete vehicle, bumper-to-bumper warranty is good for three years or 36,000 miles. The entire vehicle, including the tires, is covered during this period against any defective workmanship or defective materials in the vehicle. This warranty covers the costs of towing the vehicle to the closest dealership when a part under warranty needs repair or a replacement.
- A rust-through warranty is provided for six years or 100,000 miles. This coverage is protection against rust that causes holes in any sheet metal parts of a Chevrolet. The rust must cause a hole to be eligible for this coverage. There is no maintenance to the sheet metal required to keep the rust-through warranty.
- The powertrain warranty is good for five years or 100,000 miles. This warranty covers specific parts of the engine, transmission and drive systems. It includes: the cylinder head, manifolds, every lubricated internal part, seals, gaskets, oil pump, transmission case, the fuel systems, engine mount, the final drive housing, universal joints and drive system supports among other parts. Clutch linings, brake pads and brake shoes are not included. There is no deductible for this coverage.
- Towing is provided for the full five years or 100,000 of the powertrain warranty.
- The GM Protection Plan is a separate warranty that is available for purchase for Chevrolets through the dealership. The plan provides coverage for the cost of labor and parts when a mechanical component fails. The coverage is in effect even if wear and tear to the vehicle causes the failure.
- Courtesy transportation is available for five years or 100,000 miles and is good in the U.S. and Canada.
- The Roadside Assistance Program is in effect for new Chevrolets for five years or 100,000 miles. This plan covers the cost of towing, some required maintenance and the cost of alternate transportation when the vehicle is being serviced.
- A Chevrolet with a 6.6 liter Duramax Diesel engine has a separate warranty for five years or 100,000 miles. The coverage includes the entire engine and includes the components of the turbocharger. There is no deductible for this warranty.
- Chevrolet hybrid vehicles have a different new vehicle warranty. The warranty is good for eight years or 100,000 miles. The warranty includes coverage for the transmission, steering, the braking system and components related to the starter generator control module.
- The hybrid warranty covers towing for eight years or 100,000 miles when the vehicle needs work performed on a part under warranty. In some cases, courtesy transportation may be available during the warranty period when a hybrid is being repaired.
- The proper maintenance as recommended by Chevrolet is required in order to keep each of the warranties valid.
