The GMEPP plan is the better plan, hands down! As far as the maximum duration, you can obtain a longer coverage period if you delay your purchase until further down the road. This has already all been discussed in this thread. As a said, read up. You can basically work it to get up to (nearly) 9 year/124K mile coverage, or 10 year/111K mile coverage with the GMEPP if you do it right.O.K. good2go . . . thanks for the heads up . . . I got a call in to Denny Menholt . . . waiting to hear back.
I also called a local dealer here and am just going to shop around for the best deal . . .
Also, interested to hear you all's take on better option:
The Indiana place is offering
GMPP / Ally - 96 month / 120K warranty - $0 deductible for $3176
GMEPP / GM backed - 84 month / 100K warranty - $0 deductible for $2880
I know GMPP / Ally is no longer GM backed, and maybe doesn't cover quite as many parts (less suspension / electronics coverage etc.)
Which one would you think is the better deal? I know for sure at 120K this vehicle is going to have its fair share of service needs.
All you basically need is to incur 2 fairly pricey repairs to get the ~$3K warranty to pay for itself. I know on my 96' Impala SS I paid $2200 for the extended warranty, and ended up having over $6000 in covered repairs so it was well worth it. But then I had another $14,000 in uncovered repairs as I lost both the engine at 115K and the transmission at 148K. If I'd had the 120K mileage warranty, it would have saved me $9,000 on the engine, so I'm split between a better warranty vs. better mileage.
