GM Cuts Back on Warranties: Consumers Lose

GM has decided to cut back on the warranties and free service offered on Chevrolet and GM vehicles.  The reason:

“Free scheduled maintenance and warranty coverage do not rank high as a reason to purchase a vehicle among buyers of non-luxury brands,” said Steve Hill, GM North America vice president.

Really?  I wonder about that.  I am curious to see what statistics, surveys, or data GM used to come to that conclusion.  Perhaps GM is correct on this and I will admit I have no info to dispute GM but….I would think “..buyers of non-luxury brands” would be MORE interested in warranty protection and reducing service and maintenance costs.  Guess I am wrong.

At any rate, guess you better buy a new GM this year.  And for those of you that don’t here’s hoping you don’t have any issues with that new vehicle.
