How to Find the "Original In-Service Date"???

I just bought a 2007 Z71 Colorado with the 5yr/100k warranty. I'll probably reach 5 years before I reach 100k miles. GM states that this warranty is for "5 years from the Original In-Service Date".

I guess what this means is 5 years from the day it drove off the lot. Great, since I am the second owner....how do I find this out? I'm sure if I call GM they can tell me but I was wondering if there is something obvious on the vehicle I could look for.

Thanks!

im pretty sure the warranty is non-transferable so it means nothing to you anyway

07 and up powertrain warranty is fully transferable. The warranty goes with the truck, not the owner.

Re: How to Find the "Original In-Service Date"???

Call your local GM dealer (can be any ex. Chevy, Buick, Cadillac, etc.) and get connected to the service department. Most service writers will pull it up while you're on the phone with them. All you need is the last 8 of your VIN, not a bad idea to have the full VIN just in case. They will tell you everything you want to know. Also, if the previous owner purchased an extended warranty, often times they are forwarded to the new owner as well. Like BigZ71 said, the warranty goes with the truck, not the owner, unlike Dodge and other manfs.

I just called the dealer. My 07 was purchased on 12-19-07. Since I have 40k miles on her, it basically means I have 3yr/60k miles left on the powertrain warranty! I can live with that!
