An Important Note about Alterations and Warranties

Installations or alterations to the original equipment vehicle (or chassis) as distributed by General Motors are not covered by the General Motors New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The special body company, assembler, equipment installer, or upfitter is solely responsible for warranties on the body or equipment and any alterations (or any effect of the alterations) to any of the parts, components, systems, or assemblies installed by GM. General Motors is not responsible for the safety or quality of design features, materials, or workmanship of any alterations by such suppliers.

GMC Sierra/Yukon Hybrid Warranty

In addition to the Bumper-to-Bumper coverage described previously, General Motors will warrant certain Hybrid components for GMC Sierra Hybrid and each GMC Yukon Hybrid (hereafter referred to as Hybrid) for 8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first, from the original in-service date of the vehicle, against warrantable repairs to the specific Hybrid components of the vehicle. For Hybrid owners requiring more comprehensive coverage than that provided under this Hybrid warranty, a GM Protection Plan may be available. See your GMC dealer for more details.

What Is Covered

This Hybrid warranty covers repairs to correct any Hybrid component defect related to materials or workmanship occurring during the 8-year/100,000-mile term for the following:

Transmission

Hybrid transmission assembly and internal components, including the transmission auxiliary fluid pump, transmission auxiliary pump controller, and three-phase transmission cables.

Brakes

The brake modulator assembly is covered by the 8-year/100,000-mile warranty.

Towing

During the 8-year/100,000-mile Hybrid warranty period, towing is covered to the nearest GMC servicing dealer if your vehicle cannot be driven because of a warranted Hybrid-specific defect. Contact the GMC Roadside Assistance Center for towing. Refer to the Owner’s Manual for details.

Other Hybrid Components

The Hybrid battery and the 300-volt electrical system including hybrid high voltage wiring, hybrid control modules, Traction Power Inverter Module (TPIM) and the Accessory Power Module (APM), are covered under this warranty.

What Is Not Covered

In addition to what is not covered by the New-Vehicle Limited Warranty, there are a few additional items that are not covered by the Hybrid warranty, including wear-items such as brake linings or regular maintenance (coolants, fluids and filters). For complete details, refer to your Warranty and Owner Assistance Information booklet.

What is the GMC 5-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Warranty?

All 2007 through 2013 passenger cars and light duty trucks are covered. The Powertrain Limited Warranty is 100,000 miles or 5 years (whichever comes first). It is fully transferable and there are no fees and no deductibles. The Roadside Assistance and Courtesy Transportation programs are also 100,000 miles or 5 years (whichever comes first). For more details, please call or stop in.

How is the bumper-to-bumper warranty affected by this 5-year/100,000-mile warranty?

The Bumper-to-Bumper New Vehicle Limited Warranty on new GMC cars remains in effect for 3 years or 36,000 miles (whichever comes first). For more details, please call or stop in.

What about Courtesy Transportation?

Courtesy Transportation is also included for 5 years/100,000 miles2 (whichever comes first) on all 2007 through 2013 GMC passenger cars.

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 3 years or 36,000 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 GMC Warranty Manual under “What Is Covered” and “What Is Not Covered.”

Is my vehicle covered from rust, too?

GMC 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. GMC 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 GMC dealer for terms of this limited warranty.

Do I have to go the GMC 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 GMC dealership.

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

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