2007 Outlook XR
Default Extended Warranty

Just thought I would share my latest experience with you. The background of this is a I am former Lexus, Acura, and Toyota driver. I haven't owed a GM car in 15 years until the Outlook came out. Needless to say I was very interested in an extended warranty since I planned on keeping this baby for quite some time at least 7 years and am a bit shaky on the long term reliability issues with this vehicle.

All 5 dealerships in my area (S. Florida) did not sell the GM Protection Plan (GMPP) Major Guard which is the premium product. They wouldn't even give me a quote on GMPP. All of them offer something from North American Warranty a third party warranty. They only thing I have ever learned in all my years about extended warranties is do NOT purchase one if it is not backed by the manufacturer. Period. Third party ones promise the world and either fold or find an exclusion to not pay.

I wound up dealing with a Cadillac dealer in PA who wholesales out extended warranties from GM through volume. The real GM thing at a considerable discount. I faxed in my application and was out the door for $1555 ( $2080 retail) for 7years/100,000 miles for major guard. The dealer wanted $2800 for comparable coverage through North American. They acted as if the GM product was more money and not as good. They lied. I also found out that they can sell the GMPP they just chose not to offer it to me probably because it was not as profitable.

If anyone is interested I believe it is available up to the first 12,000 miles as new. The site is www.gmoutlet.com

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
