Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac Extended Protection Plan by General Motors

Your vehicle may be complex, but protecting yourself from potentially expensive repair costs doesn't have to be. We make our plans easy to understand, so you know exactly what you are getting. Simply choose the coverage that's right for you, Platinum or Silver, along with your deductible and contract term.

Protection Plans come with extras beyond coverage for repairs, including lost key & lockout coverage, trip interruption coverage, towing, and rental car.

If a mechanical breakdown occurs, you'll also have access to our Certified Service technicians found at any one of over 4,000 GM dealerships nationwide. The technicians at our dealerships are specially trained and work on GM vehicles like yours every day. They can even use parts with the same quality that went into the assembly of your vehicle.



Need to rent a vehicle while yours is being repaired? No problem. We will pay for or reimburse you for a rental vehicle or for any public transportation expenses while your vehicle is being repaired. TOWING & ROAD SERVICE If your vehicle is disabled, we will cover your towing or road service charges, up to $150.


If your vehicle breaks down more than 100 miles from your home and a repair facility needs to keep it overnight, we will reimburse you up to $200 a day for hotel and restaurant expenses.


If your keys are lost, broken, or if you accidentally lock yourself out of your vehicle, we will reimburse you up to $35 for locksmith services.


If you decide to sell your vehicle, your coverage can easily be transferred to the new owner


You may cancel your contract at any time, including when you sell the vehicle or if loss of vehicle occurs.


You can choose the deductible that is right for you. Once a part is repaired or replaced, the deductible for future repair or replacement of the same part is waived.




You choose the mileage, duration of the plan, and deductible.


The Protection Plans can help eliminate unexpected and high out-of-pocket repair costs. With just one major repair, the plan could quickly pay for itself.


With over 4,000 GM dealerships nationwide that honor service covered in this plan, you're covered at home or away.


Covered service at GM dealers is always performed by factory-trained Certified Service technicians. Repairs are completed with parts that meet performance standards appropriate for your vehicle.

Platinum Coverage:

With Platinum protection, you'll have coverage for nearly every component on your vehicle. With the increasing complexity of today's vehicles and high-tech features, Platinum is the best way to ensure that you are covered against potential expensive repairs.

In the event of a covered component failure, even when it is the result of normal wear and tear, you're protected. The Platinum Plan coverage is an exclusionary coverage. That means that everything is covered on your vehicle unless it is on the platinum exclusion list.


Rental: In the event of a covered breakdown, we will pay for or reimburse you to rent a replacement vehicle or for public transportation while your vehicle is being repaired. Coverage will be provided up to $40 per day with a maximum of $280 for each repair visit (unless increased as specified below as a result of parts availability delays).

Towing/Road Service: If your vehicle is disabled, we will pay for or reimburse you for receipted towing or road service expenses, up to $150 per occurrence.

Trip Interruption: If a covered breakdown occurs more than 100 miles from your home and results in the repair facility keeping your vehicle overnight, we will reimburse you for receipted hotel and restaurant expenses, up to $200 per day for a maximum total per occurrence of $800.

Lost Key & Lockout: If the keys for your vehicle are lost, broken, or accidentally locked in your vehicle, we will reimburse you for receipted expenses, up to a maximum of $35, for locksmith services.
