What is the warranty on a 2018 Chevy Silverado?

My neighbor is selling his Chevrolet, and I’m interested in buying it, but I’m hoping I can still take advantage of its warranty.

The 2018 model was one of the
better years for the Chevrolet Silverado
, but this truck’s warranty is likely on its last leg. Here’s what the warranty on a 2018 Chevy Silverado included:
  • A 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty
  • A 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty
Since you’re looking at buying a 2018 Chevy Silverado, its basic new vehicle warranty is likely expired unless the original owner bought the extended warranty for 5 years or 60,000 miles—whichever comes first. Even if that’s the case, both an extended warranty and the powertrain warranty should be coming towards the end of their 5-year limit.
Car warranties only cover repairs for faults that can be traced back to defective parts or manufacturing. Instead of looking into the costs of even more extended warranties, put your focus on something that you’re more likely to benefit from—like lowering your
