Chevy New Car Warranty: What’s Covered in 2024?

Chevrolet offers a limited warranty that allows vehicle owners to enjoy their new units supported by outstanding service and coverage. The new vehicle warranty allows vehicle owners to enjoy peace of mind, cost savings, enhanced resale value, and regular vehicle maintenance.

Although new vehicles come with a manufacturer’s warranty, some vehicle owners experience persistent defects that are difficult to fix. As a result, affected consumers endure a frustrating driving experience riddled with frequent breakdowns and incidental expenses.

California Lemon laws allow consumers who buy new or used vehicles with a manufacturer’s warranty to obtain refunds or replacements.

If you bought a new Chevrolet vehicle with a persistent defect, consider speaking to a trusted Anaheim, California lemon law attorney.

Here is the coverage you can expect for your new vehicle:

What Is NOT Covered Under the Chevrolet Manufacturer Warranty?

  • Vehicle Misuse: You should use the vehicle according to its ability and design. According to the owner’s manual, the vehicle is designed for regular travel and favorable conditions. Therefore, any damage caused by unfavorable conditions like towing or competitive racing is not covered.
  • Incidental or Consequential Loss: The manufacturer’s new vehicle warranty does not cover consequential or incidental loss caused by vehicle or commercial loss.
  • Wear and Tear: The Chevrolet manufacturer’s new vehicle warranty doesn’t cover loss due to normal wear and tear. Similarly, it doesn’t cover loss due to scratches, chips, and dents.
  • Unauthorized Modifications: When you modify your vehicle, you may use unapproved or substandard parts that can damage it. The warranty doesn’t cover damage related to substandard parts.
  • Physical and Cosmetic Damage: The manufacturer doesn’t cover cosmetic damages such as discoloration and scratches. If you damage a car seat through mishandling, the manufacturer doesn’t cover it.

Duration of the Chevrolet Factory Warranty

The Chevrolet factory warranty promises a vehicle owner their vehicle will perform as promised in the first few years of service. It covers repairs associated with defects in materials or faulty workmanship that cause mechanical breakdown.

Here is the breakdown of coverages:

  • Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty— 3 years/36,000 miles

Depending on your lifestyle, the extended warranty offers three types of plans: silver, platinum, and powertrain. The platinum plan offers up to 8 years or 100,000 miles of warranty protection.

All extended warranty plans include towing, roadside assistance, trip interruption coverage, and car rental reimbursement.

Happy to hear from you. I was very pleased with the service you provided. I couldn’t be happier. The timing was excellent. I retired June 1st and didn’t really need the car anymore. I didn’t go out and buy another car. I decided to hang on to my money for a while.

I rarely called or emailed her because she always kept me in the loop. Every case is different but I am glad mine was quick and painless.
