GM Extends Warranty On Performance PartsGM Performance Parts (GMPP) announced it will extend the warranty offered on its Performance Parts crate engines* to 24-months/50,000 miles (whichever occurs first), and it will add a 12-month/12,000 mile warranty to its Performance Parts components, effective March 1.

"Now, whether you're buying a brand new GM vehicle, a GM Certified Used Vehicle, or a GM Performance Parts crate engine for your project vehicle, GM is letting everyone know that our products offer outstanding quality, durability, and value," Executive Director of GM Accessories Nancy Philippart said. "This new GM Performance Parts warranty demonstrates our confidence in our performance products and builds on the steps we've taken to deliver both product excellence and industry-leading value."

The new warranty periods will be applied to GMPP crate engines, transmissions, and components installed in or purchased for street legal automotive applications after March 1, 2007, and is transferable to subsequent owners (by providing required documents to any purchaser of the vehicle in which the assembly/component was originally installed).

The new warranty covers thousands of GM Performance Parts, from spark plug wires to crate engines, and it is important to enthusiasts who see hot rodding and car building as more than a hobby-it's a lifestyle and a commitment-where brand loyalties are based on a mechanical relationship that is bolted in by quality and value. Only the best will do for the serious car enthusiast, and that's what GMPP offers.

Enthusiasts who crave the latest technology, maximum horsepower, and the expertise and confidence backed by GM can purchase GMPP crate engines, blocks, heads, and components from GMPP Authorized Center dealers or any other GM dealership nationwide.
