BREAKING: GM To Offer Free Basic Maintanance On Most MY14 Vehicles

Automotive News
June 6, 2013
Article Quotes:
DETROIT -- General Motors will include free maintenance on most 2014 Chevrolet, Buick and GMC models in a bid to increase sales through better customer loyalty, CEO Dan Akerson said today.
Buyers will get free oil and filter changes, tire rotations and 27-point inspections for two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first. GM recently began offering the same deal on its Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups and already offers a more extensive free-maintenance program for Cadillac.
A GM spokesman said the offer will be good on "virtually all" models sold at retail, with the possible exception of a few low-volume, high-performance cars. As a first time purchaser of a Stingray I was amazed to find it only comes with a 3 yr 36k warranty. I did not realize GM differentiated across it product lines. Now if I am reading this correctly the Corvette will be excluded from the 2 year free maintenance. :( My new XTS comes with 4yr 5ok bumper to bumper warranty and 4 yr 50k maintenance. Why is Corvette a poor stepchild when it comes to warranty and maintenance? :confused:

My guess is you have a car, corvette, low volume but has high R&D cost that GM needs to recoup so additional costs like free maintenance extends recoup time.

Fair enough. That makes sense. But then the shorter warranty for all Chevrolet products (not just Corvette) vs Caddy and Buick (often when they share some of the same parts, let alone engines) does not comport with me FWIW.:cool:

I was told an extended 100,000 warranty for the C7 will be available. At what cost? I have no idea :confused:
