2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Factory Warranty
Assuming the in-service date was in 2021, here are some assumptions about the warranty status:
- The Basic/Bumper-to-Bumper warranty (3 years/36,000 miles) would still be active since it is less than 3 years from the assumed 2021 in-service date.
- The 3 year/36,000 mile Corrosion warranty would also still be in effect.
- The Powertrain warranty (5 years/60,000 miles) would remain active, as it is less than 5 years from 2021.
- The Rust Perforation warranty (6 years/100,000 miles) would still be in effect.
- The battery and air conditioning warranties warranty would also still be in effect.
- The Federal and California Emissions warranties (2-5 years based on vehicle) would likely still be active.
If you’re confused about what each of the factory warranties covers for your Chevrolet, I recommend checking out our article “The Ultimate Guide to Car Warranties.” This guide explains in detail what is included in the Basic, Powertrain, Corrosion Perforation, Air Conditioning, Paint, Battery, Tire, Federal Emissions, and California Emissions warranties that come standard from the manufacturer.
All of these component warranties together make up the complete Factory Warranty provided by Chevrolet on new vehicle purchases. Our article breaks down each warranty, what’s covered, the duration, and more. Understanding the ins and outs of factory warranties can help you make informed decisions about your vehicle’s service and know what to expect if repairs are needed. Check out “The Ultimate Guide to Car Warranties” for a comprehensive overview of the Chevrolet Factory Warranty.
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty, also known as the basic warranty, covers repairs to any defects in materials or workmanship in the vehicle for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. Assuming the in-service year is 2021, the Bumper-to-Bumper/New Vehicle Limited Warranty would expire in 2024, unless the vehicle has already exceeded 36,000 miles, in which case the mileage limitation would take precedence.
The basic warranty does not cover damage caused by accidents, misuse, alterations, lack of maintenance, environmental factors, or normal wear and tear. Things like tire wear, scratched paint, worn brake pads, and dried hoses are not covered. Also excluded are any repairs needed due to using improper fluids, non-GM parts, or enhancements that alter the vehicle from factory specs.
The powertrain warranty covers repairs to the engine, transmission, drive systems, and other major components for 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. For Chevrolet models, with gas engines, assuming the in-service year is 2021, this warranty would expire in 2026. Unless the vehicle has already exceeded 60,000 miles.
The powertrain warranty covers the engine, transmission, drive axles, transfer case, turbos, and other internally lubricated parts against defects in materials or workmanship. Things like hoses, gaskets, electrical connectors, and external sensors are not covered. The warranty expired after 5 years and does not transfer to subsequent owners. Consult your owner’s manual for full powertrain warranty details.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
The rust perforation limited warranty covers sheet metal panels against corrosion and rust-through. There are two components to this warranty. For corrosion coverage, it is 3 years/36,000 miles, whichever comes first. For rust-through coverage, it is 6 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Assuming the in-service year is 2021, the corrosion coverage will expire in 2024 and the rust-through coverage will expire in 2027.
The rust perforation limited warranty covers the repair or replacement of any sheet metal panel that rusts entirely through, causing a hole. Surface rust and corrosion caused by accidents, damage, or environmental factors are not covered. Consult your owner’s manual for full details on the rust perforation limited warranty.
Air Conditioning Warranty
The air conditioning warranty covers repairs to the A/C system components for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. For a Chevrolet vehicle with an in-service date of 2021, this warranty will expire in 2024, unless the 36,000-mile limit has been exceeded.
The air conditioning warranty covers the compressor, condenser, evaporator, belts, hoses, and related sensors against defects in materials or workmanship. Normal wear and tear, refrigerant, and maintenance items are not covered. The air conditioning warranty will expire after 3 years and does not transfer to subsequent owners. Consult your owner’s manual for full air conditioning warranty details.
The battery is covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. For a Chevrolet vehicle that has an in-service date of 2021, this battery warranty coverage will expire in 2024, unless the mileage limit has been reached first. The warranty covers defects in materials or workmanship that would cause battery failure. Damage from improper maintenance or accidents is not covered. Wear-out through normal use is also not covered, as the battery’s charge capacity will decrease over time.
The battery warranty is part of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty and provides repair or replacement of the original battery during the 3 year/36,000-mile coverage period. It will expire in 2024 and does not extend to subsequent owners. Refer to your owner’s manual for full battery warranty details.
The tire warranty covers defects in materials or workmanship of the original tires for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. For a Chevrolet originally sold in 2021, this warranty will expire in 2024, unless the mileage limit has been exceeded. The tire warranty does not cover normal wear, tire damage from road hazards, or conditions caused by improper tire maintenance.
Tires will be replaced on a pro-rated basis if a warrantable condition exists, with Chevrolet covering 100% of parts in the first 12,000 miles. After the full warranty expires, the tire manufacturer may provide their own separate prorated warranty. The tire warranty is part of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty and will expire in 2024 without transferring to subsequent owners. Check your owner’s manual for full tire warranty details.
Federal Emissions Warranty
The Federal Emissions Warranty covers repairs to emissions-related parts for 2 years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first. For a Chevrolet originally sold in 2021, this warranty expired in 2023 when the 2-year time limit was reached. The warranty covers the repair or replacement of covered emissions parts like the catalytic converter, engine control module, sensors, and other related components. Parts that fail due to defects in materials or workmanship and cause the vehicle to exceed federal emissions standards are covered. Damage from accidents, misuse, or lack of proper maintenance is not covered. The Federal Emissions Warranty expired in 2023 and does not transfer to subsequent owners. Refer to your owner’s manual for complete details on the Federal Emissions Warranty.
The Clean Air Act
The Clean Air Act requires vehicle manufacturers to provide coverage for some emissions-related parts beyond the warranty period. For a Chevrolet originally sold in 2021, the Federal Emissions Warranty expired in 2023 after 2 years. However, under the Clean Air Act, Chevrolet may still cover repairs or replacement of certain high-cost emissions parts even after the warranty expires. This additional coverage could apply to parts like the catalytic converter, engine control module, or onboard diagnostics computer.
The Clean Air Act aims to ensure emissions systems maintain compliance with regulations throughout the vehicle’s useful life. While the standard Federal Emissions Warranty ended in 2023 for this vehicle, the Clean Air Act provides owners the potential for extended coverage if eligible emissions parts fail. Contact your dealer to see if the Clean Air Act might help with replacing faulty emissions components, even beyond the expired warranty period.
California Emissions Warranty
The California Emissions Warranty covers emissions-related parts on Chevrolet vehicles registered and operated in California and other adopting states. This warranty lasts for 3 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For a Chevrolet originally sold in California in 2021, this warranty will expire in 2024 when the 3-year limit is reached.
The California Emissions Warranty covers the repair or replacement of components like the catalytic converter, engine control module, sensors, and other emissions-related parts. It does not cover damage from accidents, misuse, or lack of proper maintenance. This more stringent warranty meets California’s emissions regulations. The California Emissions Warranty will expire in 2024 and does not transfer to subsequent owners. Refer to your owner’s manual for full details on the California Emissions Warranty.
2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Recalls
The NHTSA has issued recalls for certain issues with the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. These include recalls for daytime running lights that may not deactivate properly (NHTSA #22V903000), airbag control modules left in manufacturing mode that may prevent airbag deployment in a crash (NHTSA #22V873000), and accessory sports bars that can block the high-mounted brake light or cause it to not function (NHTSA #22V463000).
The recalls aim to correct issues that could increase crash risks due to reduced visibility or occupant protection. Owners of affected vehicles will be notified and can receive free repairs from Chevrolet dealers. Recalls are an important way for automakers and the NHTSA to help ensure vehicles meet federal safety standards. Checking for open recalls is recommended for all vehicle owners.
Extended Warranty Available Upon Car Purchase
When you purchased your Chevrolet, the manufacturer may have offered additional extended warranty coverage beyond the factory warranty. An extended warranty protects against repair costs for an extra time period or mileage.
To find out if you have an extended warranty, check your original purchase paperwork for a contract outlining extended coverage details. You can also contact the selling dealer’s business office with your VIN to check if an extended warranty is on file.
Extended warranties have their own duration limits based on time and mileage, whichever comes first. For example, a 5-year/100,000-mile extended warranty purchased when new would expire in 2027 for a 2022 Chevrolet, as the 5-year limit hits before 100,000 miles. Consult your specific extended warranty contract to see the time, mileage, and coverage details. Extended warranties provide extra protection once the factory warranty expires.
