Is bumper to bumper warranty transferrable?

    I am about to buy a used Suburban (2013) and have a question about warranty. Two sources so far have managed to confuse me completely.

    It seems clear from this one ( that the powertrain 5-yr warranty is transferrable but there is no mention if the 3-yr bumper to bumper is too. They have (purposely?) not answered that question in the FAQs either. Does it mean they are trying to quietly screw the new owners of slightly used cars (less than 3yrs and below 60k kms) out of the b2b warranty?

    Does someone know for sure? thanks

    yes you get the balance of the unused 60,000 or 3 yr ... go to a dealer and inquire about one of their used 2012 or 2013's that have under 60,000km and ask. Or look on the internet and call and ask about how much of the new car warranty is left...
    I purchase a used 2009 that had 25,000km on it and had warranty work done, no problems...

    I agree, it is transferable. That being said, if you purchase at a dealer I would look into getting an extended b2b warranty.
