Re: GM Reduced Powertrain Warranty for 2016 - Do not vote unless you purchase NEW
There are other unwritten concerns. Such as dealer availability. I won't consider certain brands just because I would have to drive 40 miles or more to a dealership. We do have 8 major brand dealers here. But 3 or 4 are undesirable for several reasons.
And then there is the matter of service department reputation. We have a dealer (used to be and Olds dealer too) here for a popular foreign brand that I would not ever consider. We had one of their foreign branded minivans back in 2001 and the dealer looked for ways to weasel out of the warranty. And they could screw up even an oil change or tire rotation.
I have found that if you visit the dealer for the occasional oil change, buy a set of tires when needed, and develop a rapport with a service writer of your choice, that you will get much more in return that just minimal service.
Also, if you had a good sales person when you buy your vehicle, they can and most often are a good liaison to the service department if you need some support. They know future sales are at stake, so will help when a potential issue may arise.
