Coverage Mile After Mile

One of the greatest benefits that comes with purchasing a new vehicle is knowing you’re covered by the manufacturer’s bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. But what happens when that warranty period is over or a repair isn’t covered under warranty? How can you make sure you are protected from unexpected repair costs?

That’s where Protection Plans come in.1 With coverage specifically designed to protect your Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac, these vehicle service contracts make it easy for you to purchase extended coverage on top of or beyond your manufacturer’s limited warranty.2 And these plans are backed by GM, so you can feel confident you’re covered by a company you trust.

Choosing the right Protection Plan

You have the option to get a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac Protection Plan either at the time you purchase your vehicle or later during your ownership journey (subject to mileage restrictions). With three coverage options, customizable contract terms and deductibles, and coverage on up to 1,500 parts, you can help protect yourself from unexpected and potentially costly repairs.

See your dealer for details and pricing on extended Protection Plans. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having long-term coverage on your vehicle. Your wallet will thank you.
