Questions and Answers

Q: How much does the lifetime warranty cost?

A: There is absolutely no cost to you. Simply select an eligible new or used vehicle with less than 70,000 miles and finance your purchase with us. You still get the same low prices that we have always offered.


Q: Does my vehicle need to be maintained at Forest Lake Chevrolet Cadillac?

A: If you live far enough away that making a trip to one of our dealerships for service isn’t feasible, then you can get your vehicle serviced at any shop. We recommend that you call the warranty provider for approval on your shop prior to repairs, just to be sure.


Q: If I am out of town and I need to have my vehicle serviced elsewhere, does that void my warranty?

A: Absolutely not, but we recommend that you call the warranty provider for approval on your shop prior to repairs.


Q: If I do have to have my vehicle serviced at another service center, are there any additional out of pocket costs?

A: As long as you get pre-authorization to have your vehicle serviced at another service center, you only pay the deductible.


Q: Don’t many new vehicles already include a 100,000 mile powertrain warranty?

A: Yes, many new vehicles (not all) include a 100,000 miles powertrain warranty, but our warranty extends indefinitely beyond 100,000 miles and includes the majority of our pre-owned vehicles, including those with 50, 60, 70,000 miles. With our lifetime warranty it is covered for life. Plus, the 100,000 mile powertrain warranty from the manufacturer is not transferrable, so when buying a used car you are not eligible for the manufacturers warranty.
