Please provide a list of at least 5 of these companies so we can all run out and buy their products (10 would be nice if you can do that). p.s. Recalls don't count.
Here is an article on secret warranties, or as I called them bulletins or things covered after the warranty expires.

Might be more relevant if it referenced vehicles from this century.

Thanks to wide spread use of the internet, "secret warranties" are no longer so much a secret these days.

+1 The request was for more up to date information based on the initial post.

The point is they exist. Don't get upset when I show you information that backs it up. I can tell no matter what I show you, you are wanting to argue about this. Done responding to you.Have a nice day😊😊

Doesn't upset me in the least. I won't own a daily driver not covered by a factory warranty.

You call them secret warranties, GM calls them special coverage's.

You still did not answer the question. How long do you expect someone else to pay for your failed side detection system? 5 years, 10 years, 20 years?

Manufacturing defects happen. That's why vehicles come with a warranty. That is why owners have the option to purchase extended warranties.

Many like to roll the dice but then like to rant about the manufacturer when the manufacturer doesn't want to pay for out of warranty repairs.

As I said, I do not understand that mindset. Of course it always seems to be about money. My son sees this on a daily basis. Once out of warranty repair estimates reach a certain dollar amount all of a sudden owners start looking for someone else to pay for the repairs.

People are strange.

Let's not forget about campaigns. Many forums (this one included) have people with inside information who post those in special places for all to see. Unfortunately, our first 'insider' left the forum a few years ago. He was the one who started the ball rolling here and was very quick to post to a list he created.

p.s. Even most campaigns (if not all) have an "expiration date." The only thing with any longevity is a recall.

So I took the advice from here and contacted the GMC through Facebook messenger. Took a few weeks of talking because they respond 24 hours after you write them - they asked me to take the vehicle to the dealership and pay for diagnostics. I was going anyway for an oil change - the dealer said "yup, it's not working" and called me to set up an appointment for the repair free of charge. I did not need the letter I'm guessing that GMC from Facebook gave them the OK to replace the sensors and the harness.

From first contact to repair - less than 1 month and most of that was because I was out of town for a week over Christmas / New Year.

Thanks to everyone for the information abut the special letter and GMC contact info.
Mine didn't have the special letter either but after contacting GMC they contacted my dealership and everything was replaced for free (except the diag fee).
