General Motors is dramatically cutting the warranty coverages on Chevrolet and GMC vehicles beginning with 2016 models.

Free scheduled maintenance and warranty coverage do not rank high as a reason to purchase a vehicle among buyers of luxury brands, said Steve Hill, GM North American VP.

The new Chevy and GMC warranties will be five years or 60,000 miles on the powertrains, including courtesy transportation and roadside assistance.  Here's more from USA Today!
