Overview

GMC’s CPO warranty offers powertrain coverage for up to 6 years or 100,000 miles from the date the car was originally purchased. It also offers 1 year or 12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage from the date you purchase the car, or from the date the original warranty stops if the car is still under the original new car warranty when you buy it. The plan is also fully transferable to subsequent owners and boasts no deductible.

What We Like

Full transferability; no deductible; special offers; 3-day exchange program

What We Don’t

Powertrain warranty starts from original sale date instead of CPO customer’s purchase date

Program Specifics

If you’re interested in buying a used GMC, you may want to consider checking out the automaker’s certified pre-owned program. That’s because GMC’s CPO program gives drivers some additional peace of mind compared to a standard used car by offering a factory-backed warranty and a few other benefits.

The primary benefit of GMC’s certified pre-owned program is the brand’s powertrain warranty, which runs for 6 years or up to 100,000 miles from the date the car is originally sold. The program also includes a bumper-to-bumper warranty, which touts 1 year or 12,000 miles of coverage from the day you buy the car or from the day the original limited new car warranty expires if the car is still under warranty when you buy it.

But the benefits don’t stop there. GMC’s certified pre-owned warranty also touts full transferability to the next owner, should you decided to sell your car while it’s still under warranty. There’s also no deductible for repairs, which is a benefit compared to many rival CPO warranties that do include a deductible. GMC also occasionally offers special financing rates on its CPO vehicles to make them more attractive to shoppers. Buying a CPO GMC qualifies you for some nice perks like a scheduled maintenance program, which includes two service visits over 2 years or 24,000 miles, as well a free trial period of OnStar services and SiriusXM satellite radio. Finally, if you don't like the certified GMC vehicle you've purchased, you have 3 days or 150 miles to exchange it for another vehicle.

GMC’s certified pre-owned warranty also comes with a few drawbacks. For instance, it’s a little confusing that the powertrain warranty starts on the day the original owner purchased the car, but the more comprehensive warranty starts when the CPO customer buys the car. Additionally, one extra year of bumper-to-bumper coverage isn’t exactly great, though we admit that it’s on par with many rivals.

We still recommend checking out GMC’s CPO warranty, as it offers several benefits you won’t be able to get with a standard used car.
