Chevrolet Extended Warranties | Your Protection Plan

Chevys usually outlive their warranties, which means that their owners are often unprotected against expensive auto repairs bills. Chevrolet extended warranties are good investments and can help you save time and money on costly repairs.

To learn more about extended warranties, and why you should consider a third-party warranty, read on. The CARCHEX experts will show you how to find the most comprehensive coverage for your Chevrolet at the most affordable price.

What Is Covered by a Chevrolet Dealership Warranty?

When considering an extended warranty for your Chevrolet, the original protection plan and expected lifespan of those parts should be considered. New Chevy vehicles come standard with the manufacturer’s warranty that includes:

Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Coverage

Chevy offers bumper-to-bumper protection for three years or 36,000 miles. This basic coverage option covers most parts between your bumpers as well as defects in glass, seating fabric, interior trim, and more.

Powertrain Limited Coverage

Chevrolet trimmed its five-year powertrain warranty for the 2016 model year from 100,000 miles to 60,000 miles. The powertrain warranty covers the engine, transmission, and drivetrain, and offers a $0 deductible. Also, it’s coverage is completely transferable to new owners at no charge. Powertrain coverage doesn’t cover as many components as bumper-to-bumper coverage, but it lasts a lot longer.

What Is Not Covered by Chevrolet’s Warranty?

Unfortunately, not everything is covered by powertrain and bumper-to-bumper warranties. Before you consider an extended warranty, it’s important to know what isn’t covered under your original Chevrolet warranty. Note that Chevrolet’s manufacturer warranty does not cover the following:

  • Tire and wheel damage or wear (this is normally covered under their own manufacturer’s warranty)
  • Damage from truck bedliners
  • Damage resulting from accidents, misuse, or alterations
  • Issues caused by environmental elements, chemical treatments, or aftermarket products like sealants
  • Damage from “insufficient or improper maintenance”
  • Issues resulting from impact, use, or other environmental causes
  • Problems resulting from the wrong fuel-grade
  • Components like third-party electronics (DVD players, wireless headphones, etc.)

It’s also important to note that anything not original to the vehicle or any part that is not an authorized Chevy part is not covered by this warranty.

Is an Extended Warranty Worth It?

When your manufacturer’s warranty doesn’t cover all of your vehicle’s parts, it can be challenging to afford the cost of necessary repairs. Take a look at a couple of common Chevrolet repair estimates:

  • Radiator Hose Replacement—$213–$265
  • Oil Pressure Sensor Replacement—$266–$339

With an extended Chevrolet warranty, you have extra protection for repairs and damages that could potentially be extremely expensive.

Where Can I Find The Best Warranty Plan for My Chevy?

Research shows that the average age of the cars on our roadways is a record-high of 11.5 years—or more than twice that of the standard powertrain warranty offered by Chevrolet. This means that most Chevy drivers won’t have coverage once their factory warranty expires.

Since the average repair cost for Chevrolets over a 10-year period is $8,800, it is recommended that Chevy drivers get protection against expensive repairs to keep them on the road for a longer period of time.

CARCHEX, a third-party company, offers several levels of extended coverage for Chevrolet vehicles, with a number of plans within those levels. The chart below outlines the five coverage levels:

How Can I Find the Right Extended Warranty?

Chevrolet offers extended warranty packages that can be purchased from your local Chevy dealer. However, the extended warranties sold by dealers will usually come at a higher price.

Consider purchasing your extended warranty from a third-party warranty provider like CARCHEX to get an affordable vehicle protection plan with great coverage. We offer the following benefits:

A Variety of Affordable Plans

Car dealerships frequently mark up the cost of their vehicle protection plans while third-party providers are incentivized to find the best price on your extended warranty.

At CARCHEX, for instance, we use our power in the warranty marketplace to provide affordable prices on extended warranties. Our personalized quoting process finds the right plan for your car and budget.

Great Resale Value

Getting an extended warranty for your vehicle can increase its resale value. If you’re hoping to sell your Chevy Traverse or other Chevy model in the near future, look for a third-party extended warranty that is transferable from owner-to-owner, like the Extended Vehicle Protection Plans offered by CARCHEX.

Options for Serving your Vehicle

Many factory warranties stipulate that you can only have your car serviced at specific dealerships and repair shops. With third-party companies like CARCHEX, however, you can have your Chevy repaired at your choice of over 30,000 repair facilities—allowing you to find the best mechanic for your needs.
