I bought my 02 Bonneville about a week and a half ago now. When I was buying it I bought a GMPP Major Guard extended warranty. But today I had some issues canceled it. First the dealer told it was going to cost $1820 for a 4year 48k mile warranty. When I shopped it on the net with some discount sites for GM warranties they sell the same warranty for $1700 with a zero deductible. This warranty wholeseller said the dealers price was pretty good because they can make them up as much as they want. My dealer told me they would sell me the warranty for cost if I bought it from them with the car.
To be eligible for Major Guard I had to buy it from the selling dealer at the time of sell because all factory warranty'* where expired. Well the dealer informed me at the time of sell that price they quoted me was with a $100 deductible. So I ask how much more for it with no deductible. They said $1920 it was another $100 dollars more. So I agreed to pay it. Well I get a letter from GM the other day saying My car isn't eligible for the warranty. I called the dealer about it the day I got the letter. They said they would check into it. Today I spoke with them again and what they said was the car is eligible for the warranty but for the mileage(17K) and year(2002) it wasn't eligible for a zero deducible that it would have a $50 deducible instead. I got a little
and said that I shopped it on the net and it showed it was available before I even bought it from them. That I also shopped some aftermarket warranty'* as well and they could just give me my $1920 back and I'll go buy from someone who knows more about what they sell.
The bad news is if I do buy a warranty it will have to be an aftermarket one at this point. I wonder if I even should. Right now this is what I know that needs to get looked at. The passenger door speaker needs replace I can do this myself of course with something aftermarket.and this thread I did http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=72521
. The car is in like new condition and I just wonder if I should just put the money back in the bank.
My 1995 Bonneville had no problems until 130K and that was the uim. If this car is anything like that one it will be a wast of money to buy one. I just wanted some protection but know I don't even know if I should worry about getting one.
