GM Adds 12-Month/12K-Mile Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty on GM Certified Used Vehicles and Saturn CPO Vehicles

August 22, 2008

DETROIT– General Motors will provide consumers with a fully transferable 12-month/12,000-mile "bumper-to-bumper" warranty with no deductible on all GM Certified Used Vehicles and all Saturn Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles sold in the United States. The announcement was made by Brian McVeigh, general manager, GM Fleet and Commercial Operations, and Jamie Hresko, GM North America vice president of quality.

GM also has extended the age and mileage eligibility standards for GM Certified Used Vehicles and Saturn Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles to include models six years old or newer, with up to 75,000 miles.

In September, GM Certified Used Vehicles will mark the sale of its three-millionth vehicle.

The fully transferable 12-month/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, which begins on the date of purchase of the GM Certified or Saturn Certified model, is standard on all GM Certified Used Vehicles or Saturn Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles purchased from participating dealers after Sept. 13. The warranty covers the vehicle from bumper to bumper on any vehicle defect related to materials or workmanship, including all but standard wear-and-tear components on the vehicle. All body and sheet metal components are warranted against rust-through corrosion for six years/100,000 miles.

GM Certified and Saturn Certified also provide buyers a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty with 24-hour roadside assistance and courtesy transportation, free vehicle history report, a comprehensive 117-point vehicle inspection, and a three-day, 150-mile customer satisfaction guarantee.

Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles, Saab Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles, and Hummer Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles operate separate programs — each of those programs has a six-year/100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper comprehensive warranty (whichever comes first), effective from the vehicle's in-service date.

Consumers can go to to learn more about GM Certified Used Vehicles, locate the closest GM Certified dealer, or search available certified pre-owned inventory, with 60,000-plus vehicles. Consumers can visit to learn more about Saturn Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles.
