I do not buy these things unless there is a proven history of problems. GM usually allows you to purchase the extended warranty any time during the original warranty period. They also send you information before that time. I will continue to visit this site and watch for problems. No problems, no extended warranty. One must be careful of the internet though. I have a 2007 Harley big twin that everyone on the net was complaining about the new at the time 6 speed tranny. It was a gear whine issue from people that lugged their engine not an actual problem. I wanted to know if anyone had grenaded a tranny and no one had so I passed on their extended warranty. My money is better in my pocket than their's. The warranty on the 2010 Camaro is much better than the one that I got with my 2002 SS. I never would have used it had I boyght it. My 2002SS is getting traded today for my 2010SS. It has 61000 miles on it. The only issue was with the catalytic converters. Gm had extended the warranty on these at no charge because they knew that there was a problem. I had both sides replaced at no charge after the original warranty was already gone.
