aftermarket warranties??? need advice

when i worked at the dealership back in 2001, aftermarket warranties were a freaking nightmare. people's cars would sit for days waiting for the company to approve the work before the dealership could even touch the car. then sometimes, after the work was done, they would deny coverage and the people would have to pay. GMPP was the only way to go if you didn't wanna stress out whenever your car needed fixin'. ever since then, i have only dealt with GMPP. they are hassle-free and awesome! but now we're in a situation where a car we're interested in is not at a GM dealer and is out of factory warrranty.

should we revisit the aftermarkets? have they changed? are there any you would recommend? any you would stay away from?

thanks in advance for any help

I think they have changed a lot lately. I work with them everyday, being a GM dealer Service Manager. Just have to watch the coverages, and read some of the fine print.. Comprehensive coverages are the best to get if it is offered, only way to get all the electronics covered. Powertrain warranties out there only cover internal items in differentials and transmissions and engines. Look for things like do they pay diagnostic charges with repair, do they replace with new or used parts.. believe it or not some companies use used parts they ship to the dealer. Do they cover all fluids. Most GM dealers will still sell you a GMPP warranty, just have to go to a GM dealer. They have after market too. They will make you pay for an inspection on the car to look for any "pre-existing conditions" and then they will sell you the warranty. That is typically the best way to get the most coverage. Hope that helps. If need more info send me a PM. and maybe you can call me here at work and I can give you more information.

Warranties are a gamble for both parties. You gamble that it will break, and it'll be covered under warranty. The company selling you the warranty gambles that you will never need the warranty. Guess who usually comes out on top? The warrantor, not the warrantee.
