Buick is exceeding expectations of luxury, and Buick Protection products are exceeding expectations of confidence. From Buick Protection Plans to Buick Tire and Wheel Protection, Buick Protection products can provide coverage and benefits that continue even after your new-vehicle warranty expires so you can just relax and enjoy the ultimate luxury: confidence.
Protecting yourself from potentially expensive covered repair costs doesn’t have to be complicated. The Buick Protection Plan is easy to purchase. Simply choose the coverage that’s right for you, Silver or Platinum, along with your deductible and contract term.
The Buick Protection Plan comes with extras in addition to coverage for approved repairs, including lost key and lockout coverage, trip interruption, towing, and rental car.
If a covered mechanical breakdown occurs, you’ll also have access to the Certified Service technicians found at any one of the 4,000+ GM dealerships nationwide. These technicians are specially trained to work on GM vehicles. They can even use the same quality of parts as those used when your car was first built.
RENTAL CAR COVERAGE (for covered breakdowns)
Need to rent a vehicle while yours is being repaired? No problem. Your coverage will pay for or reimburse you for a rental vehicle or for alternate public transportation expenses while your vehicle is being repaired (up to $40 per day/maximum of $280 for each repair visit).
TOWING & ROAD SERVICE
If your vehicle is disabled, your towing or road service charges are covered, up to $150.
If your Buick experiences a covered breakdown more than 100 miles from your home and a repair facility needs to keep it overnight, you will be reimbursed up to $200 a day for hotel and restaurant expenses, for up to four days or a total of $800 per occurrence.
LOST KEY & LOCKOUT
If your keys are lost, broken, or if you accidentally lock yourself out of your vehicle, you will be reimbursed up to $35 for locksmith services.
If you decide to sell your vehicle, your coverage can easily be transferred to the new owner upon payment of the applicable transfer fee shown in the plan Terms and Conditions.
You may cancel your contract at any time, including when you sell the vehicle or if loss of vehicle occurs , upon payment of any applicable fee. See your Buick dealer for details about refunds.
ONE-TIME DEDUCTIBLE ELIGIBILITY
You can choose the deductible that is right for you. Once a covered 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 Buick Protection Plan can help eliminate unexpected and high out-of-pocket repair costs. With just one major covered repair, the plan could quickly pay for itself.
COVERAGE WHEREVER THE ROAD MAY LEAD
With over 4,000 GM dealerships nationwide, your coverage protects you when you are at home or away.
THE RIGHT PARTS. THE BEST SERVICE.
Covered service at GM dealers is performed by factory-trained Buick Certified Service technicians. Repairs are completed with parts that meet performance standards appropriate for your Buick
Available in addition to the Platinum coverage of the Buick Protection Plan, Buick Wrap Coverage is a vehicle service contract that provides exclusionary coverage for approved parts not already covered by the standard manufacturer’s warranty (full or certified), or any exclusions as stated in the service contract. It’s a fresh look at coverage so you can drive with confidence.
Wrap Coverage begins on the contract purchase date at 0 months/0 miles. The term for the Platinum Wrap coverage will be based on your vehicle’s make and is only eligible for purchase during the vehicle’s bumper-to-bumper warranty period. See your Buick dealer for coverage details.
With Platinum Protection, you’ll have our most comprehensive coverage for your Buick. Platinum is the best way to help ensure that you are protected against potential expensive, covered 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 Buick unless it is on the Exclusion List.
