For what it is worth - I made the rounds this afternoon to some local GM dealerships in regards to GMPP prices (as my intent was, if at all possible, to support a local business before going to one out of state). Out of 3 dealerships I stopped at 1 stopped just short of calling me a liar when I told him of the wholesalers price and wouldn't work with me any more (and I won't be going back there again!), the second suggested that I buy a new car as to get further warranty coverage (uh, sure) and the 3rd was willing to work with me on the pricing and ended up matching the wholesalers price - much to my surprise!
Lesson learned: give the local businesses a chance, be honest and cordial with them and see what they are willing to do!

One difference. Here in TN if you buy locally, even if they match the sales prices, you pay 9.125% sales tax. So, just assuming round figures, your $1000 GMPP bought locally totals $1091.25 while buying off the internet out of state costs you $1000...of course, most states require that you send them the tax on out of state purchases, so it would be even

Yep... Every state is pretty much different on taxes. TN is fortunate that we have been able to avoid having a state INCOME tax so the sales tax is high to try and make up for that.

Here is mine story.
1. On 2/27/2010 I bought the 2009 Impala CPO with 38781 miles on it, specifically asked the financial manager with Community Chevrolet if there is any deductible, answer was NO. But it actually came with $100 deductible.
2. The CPO car came with 12000mile/12month as certified vehicle, and I purchased 32000mile/48month GMPP Major Guard protection. Again the financial manager with Community Chevrolet told us the car would still be in coverage till 2/27/2015 or at 82781 miles. So it will start after the certified warranty runs out. I think that is a logical explanation. Just to find out that the coverage I purchased only covers up to 2/27/2014 or at 70781. In fact, it costs $1800 for 20000mile/36month.
3. When I got the booklet, sent emails on 05/18/2010 to the sale person, financial manager, and sales manager asking to cancel the policy, the dealership seems to be nonexistence.
Call GMPP, they were saying that it is MY FAULT that signed a document that I didn’t understand. Had to admit that I was trick by the straight and simple lies from the seemingly friendly ppl in the dealership. Other than saying it is a scam to rip you off, with the GMPP running side by side with the factory warranty for CPO, what is the point? And both GMPP and ppl in the dealership try to hide that fact.
#57 of 59 Major Guard Extended Warranty
Apr 20, 2011 (2:43 pm)
Bought a dealer demo 2011 Impala LTZ this past Friday with 2,000 miles on it. Bought from GMPP web site the Major Guard Extended Warranty for 5 years / 100,000 miles. Now everything is covered like the 3 year / 36,000 miles warranty. Paid $1,475 for it but the other option was a local extended warranty company for $874 for the same coverage. I thought that the GM one was better as there is no question as to who pays. GM does. I had a 2007 Impala SS that was on it's third transmission in 60,000 miles. The car also needed a replacement module for the remote start / TPMS system that would cost $600+. The Major Guard would cover it. Got quite a deal on the LTZ, $31,655 MSRP and with all the rebates and discounts, $24,000.

Just purchased a Silverado C1500 LT. Using the link above, I am seeing the 72/72,000 plan for for $980 - $100 (expires 5/31). Wonder if this $100 special discount comes around every other month or so; or is it a rare deal?

Did anyone finally get to buy the GMPP from GM Outlet. I am at the verge of making a decision but am really not sure if GM Outlet is a scam or not. The website is not at all impressive and so my doubts.
