2 Years of Free Maintenance Makes the Slick 2014’s Look Even Better!
Isn’t it great when people do nice things for you? Nothing beats a cheerful hello, someone who lets you go in front of them in line because you have fewer items, holding that elevator door for an extra couple of seconds… it’s the small things that really make for a great day. If that’s the case, how would someone taking care of your oil changes and other scheduled services for two years make you feel? Well, GM wants to make it a great year… make that two, for everyone who buys one of their 2014 vehicles.
GM’s new Maintenance program will take care of certain scheduled maintenance services for two years/24,000 miles (whichever comes first) for customers who purchase or lease an eligible new 2014 Chevrolet, Buick or GMC vehicle.
“This new plan will kick off our customers’ ownership experience on the right foot and keep our strong sales momentum going,”
“We know that customers who service their vehicles at our dealerships are much more likely to purchase another GM product down the road,” said Dan Akerson, General Motors Chairman and CEO, who announced the plan at GM’s 2013 annual meeting of stockholders. “It’s all the more important to bring customers to our service facilities for routine maintenance to further enhance the quality and reliability of their GM vehicles.”
If you’re wondering what the maintenance entails, for most 2014 vehicles it will include an oil and filter change, four-wheel tire rotation, and conduct a 27-point vehicle inspection based on what’s called for in the vehicle owner’s manual maintenance schedule and oil life monitoring system. According to the press-release, “some alternative-fuel vehicles do not include oil changes, and some performance vehicles do not include tire rotations when that service is not recommended.”
The program covers up to four service visits in the 24-month period, and is fully transferable to subsequent owners. Already bought/leased a 2014 vehicle and feeling left out? Don’t worry because customers who have already purchased or leased a 2014 model year vehicle will receive the scheduled maintenance program.
Taking care of your vehicles maintenance for two years? Sounds like a remarkably friendly gesture if you ask me!
