    I may be mistaken but it seems like my dealer mechanic said that when Chevy came out with the 100k mile warranty in 07 that it covered u-joints and brakes. I see the 2011's 100k warranty doesn't cover as much. Did GM change the warranty? I remember thinking it was odd that GM would include brakes under a drivetrain warranty, when i bought my 07.

    Unless i'm extremely mistaken, the GM 100,000 mile warranty is drivetrain exclusive. There is almost no warranty out there that will cover normal wear items such as brakes, ujoints, and the such.

    The 100K warranty is for "powertrain" and GM has made some changes as to what is covered. GM warranty has become more complicated over the past few years. You have the factory bumper to bumper 3/36, 100k powertrain, Certified Used, GMPP, emissions warr, lifetime parts and labor, reman trans 3yr-100k, t-case 2/24, engine, etc.. Lets not forget about recalls and special policies. The only way to know for sure what you have or what you are getting is to have the dealer look it up by the VIN. Regardless of what you have, don't be surprised if your dealer wants you to sign for diagnosis of the concern before determining if it covered. If it is covered you don't pay diagnosis, if it is not covered you may have to pay for diagnosis.

    I just had my 2008 2500hd in for the u-joints and they where covered under warranty. They even replaced the broken exhaust manifold bolts under the powertrain warranty. and my truck has 68,000 on it.

    I found out that if you have a 2007 or a 2008 the "powertrain warranty" cover ALOT more. i thought my dealer replaced the rotors undere the powertrain warranty at 40,000 miles but he said no, all I know is i didn't have to pay for it. Must have been under the 36,000 miles then. But anyway it does cover alot more than the powertrain, u-joints, water pump, starter, and lots more. GM changed this in 2009 because they lost money and basically it only cover the power train now, nothing else.

    My U joints had 150,000 miles on them before I replaced them and they didn't really need it I just had the drive shaft out for another reason and decided to do it then. Im not surprised they are warranting them for 100K
