    If you register a car in the State of Florida No One will discount the plan, as all of the dealers got together with the State of Florida Insurance commissioner, and the State of Florida considers the GMPP insurance, so you have to be licensed in the State of Florida as an insurance agent to sell it, NOTE! a big farce and ripoff as each dealer does not have a licensed insurance agent on premises, A Joke but nothing you can do. Try complaining to the insurance commissioner? This is one reason I went with a Ram pickup. I always have been a GM guy, no more.

    Hi Christopher:

    I have a 2009 CTS that I bought certified last year. I did buy the extended warranty at that time as I was fully covered. Any idea as to a GM plan that might still be available for me to purchase at this point ? I appreciate your feedback. Thanks.

    Hi Christopher,

    I’m curious about how the GMPP you bought has worked out after a few more years. You said almost 4 years ago that it covered $666. Has it expired yet or are you still covered and did you find that you got your money’s worth out of it? I’m about to close on a new GMC truck and I expect the standard sales pitch about buying the GMPP plan. It seems silly to buy a 5-year plan at the time of purchase when the first 3 years are already covered and the power train is covered for 5 years. It seems like I’d be better off waiting until month 35 to buy 5 years of protection for years 4-8 even if it cost me twice what you paid. Is that not an option or am I overlooking something?

    Thanks, Christopher. I picked up my new Canyon today with no extended warranty. At least for now. Coincidentally, I also own a 2008 Pontiac Solstice GXP.

    Have you found any dealers that offer really low cost online or over the phone just to meet quotas? I’ve done this with Ford and Dodge to get an amazing low price and I need one for a Equinox.

    Thank you for a really well-written and informative article. I have an SS with under 1000 miles on it. According your article, it’s best to wait until about 30,000 miles and/or 5 months before the bumper-to-bumper expires. I don’t suppose you have a graph/table with the pricing over time?

    I was going to purchase a USED GM suv that was turned in way over mileage for a 2 year old vehicle. To bring payments down I am paying tax, title, plus about 30% down. Then of course at the end they present the extended warranty for about $3k . This could be a deal breaker for me because I feel like I am being railroaded. I am a true skeptic because the nature of this industry is truly speculative, a bet if you will. Not sure I want to do business like this.

    Hi buddy, thanks for the detailed info.
    i am buying 2018 traverse here in ontario, canada. here gm is not offereing gmepp, they are still going with gmpp.
    on new vehicles they are offering standard
    2018 and below (i noticed that from 2019 the base warranty doesnt cover tires)

    base warranty including tires = 3yrs/60,000KM (not miles :D)
    power train component = 5yrs/160,000KM
    sheet metal corrosion = 3yrs/60,000KM
    sheet metal rust through = 6yrs/160,000KM

    Emission Control
    defects and performance = 3yrs/60,000KM
    specified major emission component = 8yrs/130,000KM

    now they are offering me GMPP total plus plan for 6yrs/100,000KM for C$2600. (full price is C$3800, they are offering C$1200 discount BAIT :D) i havent negotiated anything on GMPP yet.

    by going through your article and the valuable practical experience you and others shared, i m planning to skip this offer with the purchase and will go for it when i am at 30months/50,000KM left for the base warranty of 36months/60,000KM.

    am i doing a right decision here? is there anything any of you guys can guide me or inform me off?

    Hello Christopher, great info and I learned so much reading your post! Question I got a new 2017 Camaro and had 2K on it and after the 2 free GM oil changes I plan on changing my oil with Mobil One oil and also change the oil filter, but since I am not a “ASE-certified mechanic” but I can keep records as to when and how and what I did, could this or will this void the GMEPP warranty if I get it with in the 12K?

    I can’t find much about this and GM won’t just say if you change your own oil and there’s an engine issue like low or no oil, will that void my GMEPP warranty?
