WHAT GM'S EXIT MEANS FOR CHEVROLET DRIVERS
General Motors has announced plans to transition manufacturing and sales of Chevrolet vehicles in South Africa. What does this mean for Chevrolet drivers?
Local operations are said to be handed over to Isuzu.
GM SA claims that if you are a Chevrolet owner, aftersales and parts support "will continue through the existing GM dealer network to the end of 2017". The same applies for Opel owners, however, GM SA adds that this will only go on "until the details of our discussions with PSA have been finalised".
The company promises that all existing warranties and service plans will remain in place, but from 2018 Isuzu dealers will provide after-sales and service support to Chevrolet customers.
If you wish to sell your Chevrolet back to the dealer, GM SA says "we stand by our products and don't believe there will be a need for customers to sell their vehicles back to the dealers, especially as each vehicle's warranties and after-sales service will be honoured".
However, if you still want to sell you car back, normal business practices will be followed.
If you're looking for Chevrolet parts in the years to come, GM SA has promised to "continue to ensure parts are available for Chevrolet vehicles up to 10 years after production of your model has ceased".
Chevrolet owners - pay attention!
