What is a Equinox Extended Warranty?
A Chevrolet Equinox service contract is a promise to perform (or pay for) certain repairs of services. Most consumers call this a "Chevrolet Equinox Extended Warranty", however a Chevrolet Equinox service contract is not a extended warranty as defined by federal law. The separate and additional cost distinguishes a service contract from a Chevrolet warranty. A General Motors Protection Plan (GMPP) may be arranged at any time and always costs extra; a Chevrolet Equinox factory warranty comes with a new Chevrolet Equinox and is included in the original price of the vehicle.
Are you thinking about extending coverage on your Equinox?
If you are purchasing a Chevrolet Equinox, or if you already own one, you may be thinking about getting some level of extended coverage beyond the normal Chevrolet Equinox factory warranty. Although Chevrolet Equinox's are generally very reliable vehicles, a General Motors Protection Plan, commonly referred to as a Chevrolet Equinox extended warranty, may provide you with extra protection to offer you the peace of mind you are looking for. GMPP for your Chevrolet Equinox can provide coverage that goes beyond the factory warranty of your vehicle, providing years of added protection. These General Motors Protection Plans (GMPP) are accepted nationwide at all Chevrolet dealers, and also afford you with most of the benefits provided with a new car purchase.
Equinox Extended Warranties - Alternative Provider
Many third party websites offer protection plans that they call Equinox extended warranties, these too are not to be confused with a warranty. Their is only one factory backed protection plan, namely the GMPP - General Motors Protection Plan, in which is not a warranty at all, it is a service contract with a promise to perform (or pay for) mechanical breakdown. Many consumers feel more comfortable with the convenience and affordability of a factory backed protection plan. However, there are alternative Equinox extended warranty providers. You should investigate your options before choosing your extended protection plan.

Application of additional rust-inhibiting materials is not required under the corrosion coverage and none is recommended. See your Chevrolet Equinox dealer for terms of this limited warranty.
Equinox's and their components are assembled or produced by different operating units of General Motors, its subsidiaries, or suppliers to Chevrolet worldwide. General Motors sometimes find it necessary to produce Equinox vehicles with different or differently sourced components than originally scheduled. Since some options may be unavailable when your vehicle is assembled, General Motors suggests you verify that your Equinox includes the equipment you ordered and that, if there were changes, they are acceptable to you.
Equinox are equipped with engines produced by Chevrolet Powertrain or other suppliers to Chevrolet worldwide. The engines in Chevrolet products may also be used in other Chevrolet makes and models.
