2014 Chevrolet Impala - front three-quarter view



A day after Ford announced it was scaling back the complimentary maintenance program for its Lincoln brand, General Motors has gone in the completely opposite direction, offering most of its 2014 lineup with free maintenance. Since 2011, Cadillac models have all come with a four-year/50,000-mile complimentary maintenance program, but Chevrolet, Buick and GMC vehicles will now come standard with free maintenance for two years or 24,000 miles for the 2014 model year.



The program will give vehicle owners and lessees free oil changes, tire rotations and 27-point inspections following the recommended maintenance schedule laid out in each vehicle’s owner’s manual. We contacted GM to see which vehicles were eligible for the program, and a spokesperson got back to us with the following comment:


“All 2014 models are eligible, it’s just that the included services vary by model, e.g., Spark EV would not need oil changes, Corvettes don’t recommend tire rotations.”

Even better, this plan applies to 2014 model year vehicles already purchased or leased, and it is fully transferable if the car is sold. Scroll down for GM’s official press release.
