What is the importance of keeping a maintenance record?
It is also recommended that receipts covering the performance of GM scheduled maintenance as per specified intervals must be retained in the glove box literature envelope and presented to your dealer upon request. Damage to your vehicle caused by lack of maintenance is not covered by your warranty. Therefore, valid receipts can be very important if a question arises as to whether a failure is caused by lack of proper maintenance, or a defect in material or workmanship.
Why are defects covered by warranty while damages are not?

Defects are covered because manufacturing is responsible; on the other hand, we have no control over damage caused by such things as collision, misuse, and lack of maintenance which occur after the vehicle is delivered to you. Therefore, damage for any reason which occurs after the vehicle is delivered to you is not covered under the warranty.
Maintenance services are also excluded from the warranty because it is the owner's responsibility to maintain their own vehicle in accordance with the maintenance schedule.

What can be serviced at a qualified dealer?
Maintenance and repairs can be performed by a qualified dealer service center outlet; however, warranty repairs must be performed by an authorized dealer.
How are paint and body damages covered?
Defects or damage to sheet metal, paint, trim, or other appearance items may occur at the factory during assembly or while the vehicle is being shipped to the dealer. Normally, any factory defect or damage is detected and corrected at the factory during the inspection process. In addition, dealers are obligated to inspect each vehicle before delivery. They repair any uncorrected factory defects or damage and any transit damage which they detect before the vehicle is delivered to you.
