All About The Chevrolet Warranty
Car repair coverage that’s included with the sale of a car, such as a bumper-to-bumper warranty and powertrain warranty, only last for a limited time. These plans are designed to cover factory defects for the first few years of ownership. After that, unless you have a vehicle service contract (also known as an extended car warranty), you will have to pay for repairs out of pocket.
In 1911, the Chevrolet Motor Company of Michigan became a part of General Motors. Chevy is known for its popular and affordable models as well as iconic American sports cars like the Corvette. When you buy a new Chevy today, here is what is offered through the Chevrolet warranty.
How long does a Chevrolet manufacturer warranty last for?
If you buy your Chevy from an authorized Chevrolet dealer in the U.S., you will have a limited car warranty. It is included with the price of the car and you don’t have to sign up for it.
Though there are some variations that occur depending on the model, here are some of the general guidelines applied to the Chevy manufacturer’s warranty:
- A limited bumper-to-bumper warranty
- Three years or 36,000 miles
- A limited powertrain warranty
- Five years or 60,000 miles
- A rust warranty
- Six years or 100,000 miles
These warranties cover the original purchaser of the car and anyone else who owns the car after that as long as it’s still under the warranty timeframe. This means that if you buy your car used with just a few miles, you’ll still be covered.
What’s Covered in a Chevrolet Manufacturer Warranty?
A Chevrolet warranty will generally cover the cost of any repairs (or replacements) due to factory defects on materials, parts and components that happen during the warranty timeframe. The repairs (including towing, parts, and labor) will be done at no cost to the owner as long as it’s determined the cause of the repairs are due to:
- Defect related to factory materials
- Defect related to factory workmanship
Wear and tear are generally not covered under a manufacturer’s warranty.
What does a Chevrolet bumper-to-bumper warranty cover?
Chevrolet’s bumper-to-bumper warranty will cover repairs and replacements on major Chevrolet-supplied parts for 3 years or 36,000 miles.
Examples of the major components covered are:
- Air conditioning
- Braking system
- Electrical system
- Engine cooling
- Fuel injection
- Powertrain (engine, transmission, driveshaft, differentials and axles)
- Seals and gaskets
What does a Chevrolet powertrain warranty cover?
In general, Chevrolet offers a powertrain warranty for 5 years or 60,000 miles and only covers repairs or replacements due to factory defects on the car’s powertrain:
What does a Chevrolet rust warranty cover?
Chevrolet offers a rust warranty for 6 years or 100,000 miles that covers rust-through on the car’s sheet metal.
What’s not covered under a Chevrolet manufacturer warranty?
The Chevrolet dealer facility will determine if the repairs are due to a factory defect and begin working on them.
In general, a Chevrolet warranty will not cover any damages due to:
- Abuse or negligence
- Accidental damage
- Airborne chemicals, road debri, hail and any other environmental condition that can affect the car
- Alteration or tampering of original parts
- Improper repairs
- Installation of non-genuine Chevrolet parts
- Lack of recommended maintenance
- Misuse of the car, like racing or driving it recklessly
- Normal wear and tear (including dings, dents, chips or scratches)
- Water contamination
Does a Chevrolet warranty cover tires?
A Chevrolet basic limited warranty may cover tire problems due to factory defects but not due to wear and tear.
Does a Chevrolet warranty cover maintenance expenses?
A Chevrolet warranty does not cover the cost of regular maintenance. That is the car owner’s responsibility and it’s actually a requirement. Remember, your manufacturer’s warranty claim may be denied if the dealership determines that you haven’t kept up with regular maintenance.

What happens after the specific time frame of the Chevrolet warranty ends?
Chevrolet’s limited bumper-to-bumper covers most of the major parts of your car. After 3 years pass, the powertrain warranty covers the engine, transmission, the driveshaft, differentials and axles for two more years. This coverage is designed to cover factory defects and not wear and tear. This means that any wear and tear that causes your vehicle to break down will result in a repair that you’ll have to pay on your own.
Consider buying coverage that can help you pay for repairs. Checking reviews on extended car warranties will help you make a more informed decision.

History of Chevrolet
Chevrolet, an American automobile division also known to owners and consumers as Chevy was founded in 1911. Chevrolet is a division of General Motors Company founded by Louis Chevrolet and William Durant. Chevrolet is one of General Motors’ most prominent brands. Today, Chevrolet cars and trucks are sold worldwide. Chevrolet’s headquarters is in Detroit, Michigan. Co-Founder Louis Chevrolet was a Swiss race car driver and engineer. With his help Chevrolet designed their first vehicle the Series C Classic Six and it was introduced at the New York Auto Show in 1913. It was a 6-cylinder, 4 door touring model assembled in Flint, Michigan. It was well built but costly so the next several model releases were smaller, 4-cylinder vehicles. In 1914 Louis Chevrolet had several differences with his partner and sold his shares of the company to William Durant.
Chevrolet continued to have success from 1915 – 1922 with the less expensive Chevrolet Series 490. When it was debuted, it was sold for $490.00. In 1919, General Motors commercial trucks were rebranded as Chevrolet. The next set of trucks released was the Chevrolet Truck in 1924. During the 20s and still to today Chevrolet continually competes with fellow American auto manufacturer Ford Motor Company.
Over the years, there have been many popular cars and trucks along with performance vehicles that have come from Chevrolet. Chevrolet’s flagship sports car the Corvette, was introduced in 1953. The Corvette has spanned 60 years and eight generations from 1953- 2019. By far above all other American performance vehicles, the Corvette is known as “America’s Sports Car”. Another sports vehicle launched by Chevrolet was the Chevrolet Camaro. The Camaro was introduced in 1966 and competed alongside the Ford Mustang. Interestingly enough, the Camaro lasted from 1966 – 2002, thru four generations. Chevrolet ceased production in 2002 and then in 2009, Chevrolet entered production with the fifth-generation model. Chevrolet says that to this day there are over 5 million Camaros that have been produced and sold.
Chevrolet has operations in over 140 countries worldwide. The logo and emblem have had minor iterations of the years and it has provided consumers reliable quality, spirited design and optimal performance over the 100+ years in business. With new models, the introduction to hybrids and ecars and new innovation Chevrolet is bound to be producing cars in America for many years to come.

We even cover the first $100 in towing costs for covered repairs.
yes, olive® is transferrable.
Why are cars with mechanical breakdown coverage more likely to command higher resale value than their uninsured counterparts? Having a mechanical breakdown coverage plan on your vehicle proves to buyers that your car, truck, or SUV has been well cared for. In most cases, purchasing a vehicle that has mechanical breakdown coverage means that the owner has already fixed those vehicle-specific problems that are common to that specific make and model.
Given a choice between two identical vehicles, one with mechanical breakdown coverage transferring with it, and the other without any sort of guarantee, a consumer’s clear choice is the vehicle that is covered. olive® helps mitigate vehicle depreciation by adding resale value to your ride. olive® is coverage when you need it, and, when you no longer need it, olive® is coverage you can transfer when you sell your vehicle.
olive® our coverage is backed
Extended car warranties are like a promise, only as good as the person making it.
Last year, over 40 million used cars and trucks were sold in the US alone. Many dealers try to include a Chevrolet extended warranty for used cars sold, but are all extended warranties the same? In a word: no. Extended car warranties are like a promise, it’s only as good as the person making it.
olive® is backed by an insurance provider with a long history of satisfying their customers. They’ve secured a consistent “A” rating from A.M. Best and an “A+” rating from Standard & Poor. We only partner with the best, so our coverage can be the same: the best.
An olive® plan is an excellent alternative to a Chevrolet extended warranty, it’s frictionless coverage backed by an insurance mainstay.
the true cost of ownership
Vehicle complexity is higher than it has ever been, which also causes car repairs to be pricier than they’ve ever been. The average length of a car loan now sits at 68 months. Over that five-year period of ownership, the average cost for repairs/breakdowns is between $2,000 and $3,000. Many drivers are a breakdown away from taking a serious financial hit.
But it doesn’t have to be like that, olive’s plans act like an extended auto warranty, paying for serious mechanical repairs as they come up. But, unlike an extended auto warranty, an olive® plan covers more parts than your average extended auto warranty, and olive® is backed by an insurance underwriter with a consistent “A” rating from A.M. Best, an “A+” rating from Standard & Poor. olive® is coverage backed by a rich history of success.
coverage for every driver type
new car owners
A new vehicle is a significant financial investment and one that can depreciate quickly. Taking care of your investment is vital for the retention of its value. olive® helps keeps your vehicle in pristine condition without the stress of having to pay for large, out of pocket expenses.
expired manufacturers’ warranty
There’s a reason your manufacturer’s warranty only covers bumper-to-bumper repairs for the first 3 years/36,000 miles. After this magical date, your vehicle is likely to require expensive repairs. olive® goes way beyond your vehicle’s original warranty, letting you rack up the miles with confidence.
Between soccer practice, laundry, dinner, and impromptu water-balloon fights, we know that family life is a busy life. olive® is here to take the worry out of a mechanical breakdown, so you can keep on schedule and on budget.
It’s smart to be leary of over-priced dealer extended warranties (which carry up to 300% markup!) olive® plans cover the big expensive parts and all the little parts that connect them together. olive® is affordable, direct from the underwriter, coverage.
olive® the difference
Our olive® Complete Care protection plan not only pays for the covered components, but it pays for the labor and the metal hoses, couplings, seals and gaskets, linkages, and control valves (just to name a few). Now that’s coverage superior to an average extended warranty!
When you start adding up the cost of diagnostic time, parts, labor to install the parts, manufacturer installed accessories parts, fittings, gaskets, and couplings, the true cost of a repair becomes a bloated, nightmarish affair.
olive’s budget-friendly monthly fee makes a ton of financial sense. olive® coverage acts like an extended warranty, without the financial headache.
