GM Warranty Cancellation

Your GM warranty can be Canceled – Read below about how to cancel your GM Warranty Coverage.

Can you cancel your GM Warranty?

You can cancel your GM warranty at any time for a pro-rated refund through your selling dealer directly. In order to cancel your GM warranty, you will need to contact your GM warranty company in writing; and let them know you would like to cancel your contract so they can send you instructions on how to do so. If you sell your Vehicle, you may be able to transfer your contract to the new owner if desired.

What are the most common reasons to cancel your GM warranty and claim a refund?

1.) You purchased a GM warranty and the terms and mileage have not expired. (Even if you no longer own the car, you can still qualify for a refund.)

2.) You traded in or sold your vehicle to a dealership or private party. (As long as you didn’t transfer the warranty to someone, you are most likely entitled to a refund.)

3.) Your vehicle was totaled by your insurance company or if it was stolen and not recovered.

4.) You refinanced your Car Loan. (Gap insurance doesn't carry over to the new loan)

How do I cancel my GM Warranty?

"How do I cancel my GM Warranty?" is always a question that doesn't have an easy answer. Since extended car warranties (service contracts) differ based on the company backing the warranty or the issuer, the methods for canceling vary. We'll provide you with some general steps in order to assist you in canceling your GM warranty.

Step No. 1 – Review the warranty paperwork

Pull out the paperwork for your GM car warranty and look for the section that outlines cancellation. Once located, follow the instructions carefully.

Step No. 2 – Write a letter

Certain GM warranty companies require consumers to request cancellation in writing. If so, there may be a form to fill out. Write that letter, including the form, and keep copies of the cancellation documentation.

Step No. 3 – Give them a phone call

Instead of a letter, a phone call might help initiate the cancellation process. Reach out to the company you have the GM warranty with, explain that you wish to cancel, and follow the company's instructions on how to accomplish that task.

Step No. 4 – Follow up

After a few days, you should receive a cancellation confirmation. This may involve an email notification, text message, or letter in the mail. If you are due a refund, you should receive a credit back to your original method of payment within 7-14 business days. Please note that the timeframe can start from the time the company has acknowledged your cancellation request.
