General Motors Announces Free Maintenance Program

Posted by: Mark Bilek

Starting on 2014 model-year vehicles, customers who purchase or lease an eligible Chevrolet, Buick or GMC car, truck or crossover in the U.S. will be covered by a maintenance program that includes certain scheduled services for two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first.

According to Dan Akerson, General Motors chairman and CEO, "This new plan will kick off our customers' ownership experience on the right foot and keep our strong sales momentum going. We know that customers who service their vehicles at our dealerships are much more likely to purchase another GM product down the road."

For most 2014 vehicles, Chevrolet, Buick and GMC dealers will complete an oil and filter change, four-wheel tire rotation, and conduct a 27-point vehicle inspection based on what's called for in the vehicle owner's manual maintenance schedule and oil life monitoring system.

Some alternative-fuel vehicles do not include oil changes, and some performance vehicles do not include tire rotations when that service is not recommended. The program covers up to four service visits in the 24-month period, and is fully transferrable to subsequent owners. Customers who have already purchased or leased a 2014 model year vehicle will receive the scheduled maintenance program.

Cadillac vehicles beginning with the 2011 model year are already covered by the Cadillac Premium Care Maintenance Program, which covers scheduled maintenance services including oil changes, tire rotation, most air filter replacements and an inspection for four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.
