Basic Guard Coverage

GM Parts and Labor Costs

Specific GM components within four major assemblies on your vehicle are covered for parts and labor repair costs caused by mechanical failure even if it results from wear and tear*. That includes GM parts and labor on:

  • Engine
  • Transmission / Transaxle
  • Front / Rear-wheel-drive assemblies
  • Fuel system

GM Towing

If a covered component fails, GM Basic Guard will provide authorization or reimbursement for towing (some limits apply)**.

Is GMPP Major Guard a GM Extended Warranty?

A GMPP Basic Guard service contract is a promise to perform (or pay for) certain repairs of services. Most consumers call this a "GM Extended Warranty", however a GM service contract is not a extended warranty as defined by federal law. The separate and additional cost distinguishes a service contract from a GM warranty. A General Motors Protection Plan (GMPP) may be arranged at any time and always costs extra; a GM factory warranty comes with a new GM and is included in the original price of the vehicle.
