General Motors (GM) has announced that it will provide a fully transferable five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty with no deductible for all its 2002 to 2006 certified used models.

The plan, which covers 900 components related to the engine, transmission, final drive assemblies and transfer case, will be effective from March 5th.

GM Certified Used Vehicles will also provide a three-month, 3,000-mile bumper to bumper warranty, as well 117-point vehicle inspection and a three-day, 150-mile customer satisfaction guarantee.

A 24-hour roadside assistance plan, effective from the date of purchase, will also be provided for five years or through 100,000 miles - whichever target the owner reaches first.

GM is implementing the plans as it battles against a reputation for poor reliability and durability compared to Japanese and Asian brands.

"It's just another piece, we think, that gets at this quality-gap perception and reinforces that we're making some pretty good stuff these days," Brian McVeigh, general manager of GM fleet and commercial operations, told the Associated Press.

GM brands Cadillac, Saab and Hummer are not included in the plans and have their own six-year, bumper-to-bumper limited warranty.
