In Specifications/Warranty...It states that the COMPLETE VEHICLE and TIRES are covered for 3 yrs/36K mi.
I take it to mean that things like brake pads, rotors, wiper blades, etc are also included. Maybe some one of you dealers can confirm it.

No, not the way I think you are thinking. Here is a section of a 2006 warranty booklet (G6) which should be the same for the Solstice.


What Is Not Covered
Tire Damage or Wear
Normal tire wear or wear-out is not covered. Road hazard damage such as punctures, cuts, snags, and breaks resulting from pothole impact, curb impact, or from other objects is not covered. Also, damage from improper inflation, spinning, as when stuck in mud or snow, tire chains, racing, improper mounting or dismounting, misuse, negligence, alteration, vandalism, or misapplication is not covered.

Damage Due to Bedliners
Owners of trucks with a bedliner, whether after-market or factory installed, should expect that with normal operation the bedliner will move. This movement may cause finish damage and/or squeaks and rattles. Therefore, any damage caused by the bedliner is not covered under the terms of the warranty.

Damage Due to Accident, Misuse, or Alteration
Damage caused as the result of any of the following is not covered.

Collision, fire, theft, freezing, vandalism, riot, explosion, or objects striking the vehicle
Misuse of the vehicle such as driving over curbs, overloading, racing, or other competition. Proper vehicle use is discussed in the owner manual.
Alteration or modification to the vehicle including the body, chassis, or components after final assembly by GM.
Coverages do not apply if the odometer has been disconnected, its reading has been altered, or mileage cannot be determined.
Important: This warranty is void on vehicles currently or previously titled as salvaged, scrapped, junked, or totaled.


Damage or Corrosion Due to Environment, Chemical Treatments, or Aftermarket Products
Damage caused by airborne fallout, chemicals, tree sap, stones, hail, earthquake, water or flood, windstorm, lightning, the application of chemicals, or sealants subsequent to manufacture, etc., is not covered. See "Chemical Paint Spotting" under Things You Should Know About the New Vehicle Limited Warranty for more details.

Damage Due to Insufficient or Improper Maintenance
Damage caused by failure to follow the recommended maintenance schedule intervals and/or failure to use or maintain fluids, fuel, lubricants, or refrigerants recommended in the owner manual is not covered.

Maintenance
All vehicles require periodic maintenance. Maintenance services, such as those detailed in the owner manual are at the owner's expense. Vehicle lubrication, cleaning, or polishing are not covered. Failure of or damage to components requiring replacement or repair due to vehicle use, wear, exposure, or lack of maintenance is not covered.

Items such as:

Filters
Brake Pads/Linings
Clutch Linings
Keyless Entry Batteries *
Audio System Cleaning
Coolants and Fluids
Wiper Inserts
Limited Slip Rear Axle Service
Tire Rotation
Wheel Alignment/Balance **
are covered only when replacement or repair is the result of a defect in material or workmanship.

Vehicle rental expense
Lodging, meals, or other travel costs
State or local taxes required on warranty repairs
Other Terms: This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.


GM does not authorize any person to create for it any other obligation or liability in connection with these vehicles. Any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose applicable to this vehicle is limited in duration to the duration of this written warranty. Performance of repairs and needed adjustments is the exclusive remedy under this written warranty or any implied warranty. GM shall not be liable for incidental or consequential damages, such as, but not limited to, lost wages or vehicle rental expenses, resulting from breach of this written warranty or any implied warranty.*
