Hello fellow Cruze owners,

I bought a brand new 2014 Cruze about 3 years ago and my warranty is about to expire. I get a lot of calls from companies who are offering extended warranties at outrageous prices and I mostly write them off as spam. I've also gotten estimates from Chevy through the mail.

As a first time new car buyer, I am very unfamiliar with car warranties and I just want to make sure I don't get ripped off. I figured some of you Cruze owners have been in the same position as me and maybe you could give me some advice.

I only have about 15k miles on my car and don't drive it too much. Is warranty a necessity or would you guys recommend it? Also if I don't get warranty before it expires, can I purchase one at a later time or will it be too late/more expensive?

Thanks everybody!
Ignore any calls or letters from people trying to part you with your money. I have a 14 and like you only put 15K on the Cruze. I am now fully covered under the GMPP (now sold as the GMEPP) for the next 4 years. You can purchase this plan from your G.M. dealer and I wouldn't wait until your New Car Warranty expires. There are a lot of shady Car Warranty companies out there. Is it a necessity, well no as you still have the basic powertrain coverage for another 2 years. This is what I will carry around in my Car for the next 4 years, and you can go to ANY licensed shop, not just a dealer. If you are going to keep your Cruze get one. In fact get your Dealers best price and then go to the next Dealer and see if they could beat it. I went with a Zero deductible and feel protected.
