GM ups powertrain warranty to five years, 100,000 miles

Dale Jewett

DETROIT -- General Motors is increasing the powertrain warranty on all its 2007 model vehicles to 5 years or 100,000 miles, the automaker said today.

The powertrain warranty is transferable and has no deductible, GM said. Previously, GM's powertrain warranty typically was for three years or 36,000 miles.

The move is a bid by the automaker to counter successful marketing of long-term warranties by competitors such as Hyundai and Kia.

In July, rival Ford Motor Co. increased the powertrain warranty on Ford, Mercury and Lincoln vehicles for 2007 models. The warranty is five years or 60,000 miles for Ford and Mercury vehicles, and six years or 70,000 miles for Lincoln vehicles.

I see this as a great move and on par with some Asian autos.

DCX for example got rid of their 7/70 warrranty stating it did not influence buyers. I disagree. I also was shocked when I just picked up my new Jeep Compass and only got a 1/2 tank of fuel! Thanks DCX! :puke

Gee. I wonder if this applies to my 2007 vette that I just took delivery?

EDIT: I guess so. Here's the supplement to the warranty docs:2007 Warranty Supp
