For those automobile owners who plan on keeping their vehicle for an extended period of time, a unique warranty offered by Findlay Chevrolet takes the worry out of automobile ownership.
The Never Ending Warranty extends the General Motors warranty that includes a five-year, 100,000-mile power train warranty along with the comprehensive three-year, 36,000-mile warranty which covers everything except wear and tear items.
The Never Ending Warranty extends the ownership a step further by covering the engine, transmission and drive train for the life of the vehicle. The warranty is nontransferable and pertains to the original owner unless the vehicle was purchased certified and pre-owned with less than 20,000 miles.
“This is awesome because it gives consumers peace of mind,” said Doug Fleming, sales manager for Findlay Chevrolet. “They can be protected as long as they own the vehicle.”
Findlay Chevrolet Service Manager Tony Smith, who has been in the car business for 18 years, said there are stipulations in the warranty that require consumers to have maintenance and recommended services completed at Findlay Chevrolet.
“For instance, the oil must be changed at Findlay Chevrolet every six months or 7,500 miles whichever comes first,” explained Smith. “The consumer needs to maintain the vehicle in order for us too cover the vehicle.
“Pride in ownership is definitely a part of the warranty and that certainly includes the owner doing his or her recommended maintenances.”
Fleming added that the purpose of the campaign was to create customer attention while also simplifying automobile ownership.
“Our campaign allows the vehicle owner to shop here, buy here, forever here,” Fleming added. “Customers never need to go anywhere but Findlay Chevrolet if the vehicle is purchased at our dealership.”
Fleming said Findlay Chevrolet has models to cover every buyer needs, ranging from the miniature Spark priced from $13,900 to some Corvettes that are priced at about $70,000.
“This is most definitely a revolutionary warranty,” said Fleming. “It’s one-stop shopping in the car business, for sure.”
Findlay Chevrolet is part of Findlay Automotive Group, which was founded more than 50 years ago by the late Pete Findlay, whose son, Cliff, now spearheads 27 new and pre-owned automobile dealerships in Nevada, Utah, Arizona and Idaho.
