FAQs

What is the Buick Powertrain Warranty?

All 2007 through 2012 passenger cars and light duty trucks are covered for 5 years or 100,000 miles† and all 2013 model year vehicles are covered for 6 years or 70,000 miles.

The Roadside Assistance and Courtesy Transportation programs are also 70,000 miles or-6 years (whichever comes first) for 2013 model year vehicles. For more details, please visit your Buick dealer or click here.


How is the bumper-to-bumper warranty affected by this warranty?

The Bumper-to-Bumper New Vehicle Limited Warranty on new Buick cars remains in effect for 4 years or 50,000 miles (whichever comes first). For more details, please visit your Buick dealer or click here.


Why has GM elected to make this change?

This move is intended to provide you with an unprecedented level of value, confidence, and protection. As a result, GM is elevating your total vehicle ownership experience with the best, most comprehensive consumer confidence package in the industry.


What about Courtesy Transportation?

Courtesy Transportation is also included for 5 years/100,000 miles† on all 2007 through 2012 Buick passenger cars and for 6 years/70,000 miles† on all 2013 model year vehicles.

Whenever warranty repairs are required, several transportation options and/or reimbursement of certain transportation expenses are available for your convenience at participating dealers.


What does the bumper-to-bumper warranty cover?

The bumper-to-bumper New Vehicle Limited Warranty covers vehicles registered in the U.S. and Canada from the date the vehicle is first delivered until it reaches 4 years or 50,000 miles (whichever occurs first). It covers the vehicle from bumper to bumper on any vehicle defect related to materials or workmanship. For further details, refer to your Buick Warranty Manual under "What Is Covered" and "What Is Not Covered."


Is my vehicle covered from rust, too?

Buick vehicles are designed and built to resist corrosion. All body and sheet metal components are warranted against rust-through corrosion for 6 years/100,000 miles (whichever comes first). Application of additional rust-inhibiting materials is neither necessary nor required under the Sheet Metal Coverage. Buick makes no recommendations concerning the usefulness or value of such products. Application of after-manufacture rustproofing products may create an environment which reduces the corrosion resistance built into your vehicle. Repairs to correct damage caused by such applications are not covered under your New Vehicle Limited Warranty. See your Buick dealer for terms of this limited warranty.


Do I have to go the Buick dealer where I purchased my vehicle to have this type of work performed?

While most customers prefer to have this type of work performed at their selling dealer, service can be performed at any Buick dealership.


Can I take my Buick to any GM dealership for warranty repairs?

Repairs must be performed by an Authorized Buick dealer, except in a situation when you are significantly inconvenienced and when a covered part or a Buick dealer is not reasonably available to the vehicle owner. It’s in your best interest to take your Buick vehicle to a Buick dealer for all repairs since they are the most knowledgeable about your vehicle.


Does Buick offer any service contracts for new or used vehicles?

Yes, the Buick Protection Plan is a great option for new and used vehicles and is available through Buick dealers. To learn more about the benefits of the program, see the Extended Protection section.
