She is just coming up on her 6th birthday. To date 36,203 miles and not a penny on repairs or maintenance. All oil changes and state inspections free for life from the dealer. Now as far as mods and tires... lets not go there.

Just under 21k miles. Transmission completely replaced under warranty .. That was a little over $6k on the invoice that I didnt have to pay for.
if you dont mind me asking, auto or manual and what did you notice that indicated a failure that necessitated transmission replacement?

I just reached 36,000 miles with zero $ on production defects. However, there have been damages caused exclusively by the Chevrolet Dealership of Yuma, Arizona.

6 years, 28K, so far only maintenance items - oil changes, AGM battery, FOB batteries, tires. Let's keep it that way 🤙

2015 SS. Just about to roll past 40,000 miles. Right rear mag shock was leaking around 12,000, both rear shocks replaced under warranty. Other than oil changes and new tires (A/S 3+s at 34,000 — my OEMs lasted longer than most, apparently), no issues or repairs. Spent $1,500 recently for paint correction and ceramic coating — car looks new again!

2015 with 42k on the clock. I had a bad swaybar link at around 22k. CPO warranty covered the repair. Beyond that, the passenger-front wheel well lining started hanging down at one point. I replaced that myself for about $150 (mostly in shipping).

29,509 miles, zero out of pocket, zero warranty work. A couple of bucks on mods, gas, tires, and oil. Probably in that order...

How reliable are our cars? An extended warranty a good value?

I will start: 53,000 miles and zero dollars spent on repairs (”repairs” defined as flaws, not maintenance).
Silver 2014 here with 45K miles and have spent about $3000 on repairs so far. Now my oldest son says he would like to buy it from me, so I might be working out deal with him.. At least it will still be in the family and I could drive it once in awhile.

Mine is a 2017 that is creeping up on 12k miles. No repairs have been needed, warranty or otherwise. I perform the regular maintenance and occasionally do a small mod. It is always garaged when not being driven.

As reliable as these cars are I think the GM extended warranty is still a good value in most cases. It’ll pay for itself pretty much with one mag-ride shock failure. However the one issue with the extended warranty is you will need a good GM service department to be able to take it to. My conundrum is that I generally do all of my own work so I don’t have a relationship with any of the dealers in the area. Consequently I’d be reluctant to use the warranty whenever I had a repair need.

My case aside, if you have a good service center, and your car sees temperature extremes (parked outside) or a lot of use, I think the extended warranty is money well spent. If your car is a daily driver and you don’t have another mode of transport, then it’s almost a must have.
