Buick has announced that for the 2006 model year all models will come with a 4 year or 50,000 mile manufacturer’s warranty. This makes Buick and Cadillac the only models to have better than General Motors standard 3 year or 36,000 mile coverage.
The question that frequently comes up is do I still need to purchase a extended warranty or vehicle service contract. The answer in our opinion is a resounding yes. These vehicles are jam packed with high tech electronics in addition to the normal powertrain items. These items usually fail sometime after 50,000 mile threshold. Statistics have shown that more than 89% of the auto warranties purchased pay out more than the amount they were purchased for.
