Calloway doesn't have a relationship with GM? That is hard to believe. If you can order a corvette with the Calloway option, and the car is subsequently sent from the factory to Calloway, hard to believe Calloway doesn't have a relationship with GM! But what do I know, don't own a Calloway Corvette, but it sure stands to reason, if you can order a Calloway Corvette.....or better yet buy a Calloway Corvette that is sitting in a Chevrolet Showroom, there has to be some connection!
Yes, Callaway has a very strong relationship with the GM network, and not just Corvettes, but additionally with other models across the entire GM line. You can walk into any GM dealer that is also an authorized Callaway sales/service dealer, such as Criswell, and "check the box" so to speak, and your ordered vehicle will go from factory, to Callaway, and to the dealer for delivery with full warranty.
It is my understanding that Callaway will work with GM's dealership network.
However, on a power train warranty claim on a Callaway Corvette, the dealership's service department is paid by Callaway's warranty department, not GM's warranty department.
Rodney, that is accurate, although GM will determine if a power train warranty claim is a GM issue, or a Callaway issue, thus determining who foots the bill.
Of note, like the GM warranty, the Callaway warranty can be extended at owner's cost. Without going into specific fine print, here's a generalization of the warranty from my brochure:
Callaway offers the most comprehensive aftermarket warranty in the industry. Overlapping the factory GM warranty, Callaway covers all Callaway components and GM components that are affected by Callaway components. GM dealers do not block factory warranty on Callaway Corvettes
; they perform maintenance and warranty repairs with support from Callaway Cars.
In the rare occasion that a Callaway car or truck requires attention by a Chevrolet, GMC or Cadillac dealer to address a warranty-related problem, GM and Callaway work together to return the vehicle to its owner as soon as possible. For 36 months or 36,000 miles from the vehicle in-service date or mileage (whichever comes first) Callaway assists the dealer to conduct a timely diagnosis of the problem. Callaway will then supply any required Callaway replacement parts and technical support, and reimburse the dealer for the dealership’s labor cost. Plus, if failure of a Callaway component should result in damage to covered GM powertrain parts, Callaway will also reimburse the dealer for those parts and labor as well.
