GM Accessories and Associated Accessories

GM Accessories offers two types of accessories: genuine Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac Accessories and Associated Accessories

Genuine Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac Accessories are designed, engineered and tested by GM. When installed by an authorized GM dealer, they are covered for the balance of the new vehicle’s warranty or 12 months/12,000 miles, whichever is longer.

Associated Accessories are engineered and provided by a lineup of well-known manufacturers, each with its own individual warranty coverage. If warranty service to an Associated Accessory is required during the accessory’s warranty period, contact the accessory manufacturer to determine the correct repairs. For more information on warranty claims of Associated Accessories, refer to Section 1.3.4 of the Parts/Accessories P&P Manual.
