I'm thinking everything done to your Esky this far was covered by the original factory warranty? Did you get a service package with this warranty?I have an Escalade 2021 ESV and I bought the extended warranty through the dealership. I think mine was 7k. I have 32k miles on mine now and I have had the lifter issue, a severed injector harness grounding wire, a faulty rear leg taillight and now I’m about to take it in for an exhaust shell in the cabin. Honestly looking back, I wouldn’t have bought it because I don’t think the truck will make it to 60k before I dump it. My two cents.
Yes you are correct. No out of pocket. I think my point is the reliability at this point makes me think I won’t even really use the extended warranty. I just don’t feel that the build quality is there.I'm thinking everything done to your Esky this far was covered by the original factory warranty? Did you get a service package with this warranty?
I wouldn't worry. Every manufacturer has 'lemons' and most are attributed to a weak service department who don't know how to repair things correctly the first time. They guess 4 times and the jig is up in most cases.Well, they can’t really be any more unreliable than the pickups…same: trans, engine, transfer case, rear diff, steering rack, etc. But, I hear you…hoping these
incidents are few and far between…but the evidence seems to be mounting. Sure glad my dealer “includes” a lifetime powertrain service contract…
Hi Everyone! I got a '22 Yukon Denali XL, and thinking about purchasing an extended warranty plan to ensure my drivetrain is covered. Has anyone been purchasing the extended plans for their Tahoes/Yukons, or do y'll ride it out and fix things as you go? I currently have 19k miles on the vehicle, purchased in March of this year. We take it on long road trips with the kids, and this is our primary kid hauler around town. We do expect to keep the car for 9-10 years (hopefully!) as we really like the room inside. My downside is - I was quoted $3,200 for 6 years and 90k miles. 6 years start ticking from my purchase date, so I essentially get 3 extra years or 90k miles total whichever comes first. I always drove Japanese SUVs, and never really kept them past 5 years. So wondering if warranty is a good investment here, or are these trucks pretty reliable? My brother just crossed 200,000 mile in his '09 Tundra and never had any major issues. But seeing how much electronics these new trucks have, and how many folks complain of the lifter and transmission issues, I'm a bit nervous losing my manufacturer warranty a year from now (high miles).
^^^ This!!!OTOH, I still have $16k in the bank that I never used to buy extended warranties on anything over the past 30 years. That'll pay for a lot of parts for me to fix my 2022 Tahoe, if anything ever goes wonky on it.
I'd rather not bet against myself. Most folks haven't figured that out yet.
