Question about the new GM warranty extension from 3years to 5 years on bumper/bumper
Does anybody have any experience with acquiring this warranty?
For clarity, I am talking about this one. (I think the correct title is "Extended Limited Warranty". It extends the 3Y/36K bumper to bumper to 5Y/60K)
I bought my car on 3/2/19. I specifically asked the dealer about this, they said never heard of it. They tried to sell me their inhouse warranty (really an insurance policy, with so many exceptions as to be almost worthless). I persisted, they went away, and 1/2 hour came back with something they characterized as "GMPP" (which I understand is now called Ally, as they bought it from the GM bankruptcy). This was not the Chevrolet Protection Plan, which is more like the old GMPP. Interestingly, priced same as their inhouse one.
I was tired by then, just wanted out of there, and figured I could go buy it from some other dealer (like Fichner). I call the dealer I had bought my last GMPP on my 2014 Stingray from, and he told me it was a one chance, had to buy at delivery. I said not offered by the dealer, he said GM allows them to do this, i.e. not offer to a purchaser of a new vehicle.
Is that right, i.e. the dealer can refuse to offer, and the customer has no option?
I am interested if anyone has purchased, approximate cost, and can the dealer refuse to offer?
