General Motors has announced a "GM Total Confidence" buyer-protection program for all new GM cars and trucks bought in April. The program includes:

  • Payment protection: Covers up to nine months of payments on vehicle loans or leases ($500 maximum per month) if you lose your job for economic reasons during the first two years of ownership.
  • Vehicle value protection: Covers any difference in trade-in value if the outstanding principal loan balance is more than the vehicle's retail value after half the vehicle payments have been made, for up to six years.
  • Five-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty: Covers repair costs and provides roadside assistance and courtesy transportation, plus the warranty is fully transferable if the vehicle is sold.
  • OnStar: Provides one free year of OnStar's Safety and Security package.
