It is a GM warranty, but still not sure its worth it as I have had no issues.

If your going to keep it and even though you have no issues, I think that I would make the investment, it's a gamble that if you lose and I hope you do is only going to cost you $1,900.00 but if you win, it can save you thousands down the road.

When you have to do the transfer case replace it will pay for itself. Coming real soon, I got about 75k before mine went.

I have an 02 and just had the injectors replaced for FREE! 02-03 have an extended warrenty with GM for injectors. 7 years or 150,000 miles. If you see any white smoke take it in and they will change them out. My truck runs 100% better now....

I am aware of the cost of the identified repairs, but questioning how often the repairs are required.

Like mentioned previously - No Issues thus far.

As stated earlier buying the extended warranty is like making a wager. If you do go with the warranty shop around the price may be negotiable. There are a lot of high mile trucks out there that never had a dime put in them.

I had one of the very first 2001, besides a few major marketing problems the truck did nothing but run. Once truck got 200K miles had to rebuild trans, replace fuel pump, and replace front end.

Now have a 2005, truck has 70K miles, have replaced front end already & speedometer.

I have never had an extended warranty before. If I would have had it on this truck I would be at the break even point now.
