FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What coverage levels does the Protection Service Contract offer?

There are two levels of coverage offered through the Protection Service Contract: Silver and Platinum. Silver provides basic component coverage, while Platinum covers most mechanical and electrical components on your Buick. There are a number of time and mileage options from which to choose. For more information, see your Buick F&I Sales Representative.

Where should I get my Buick repaired?

During the term covered by your service contract, you may have covered repairs completed at any participating dealer.

What deductible levels are available?

Deductible levels include $0, $100, and the Disappearing Deductible feature.

What is a Disappearing Deductible and how does it work?

The Disappearing Deductible feature provides the ability to waive the $100 deductible when you return to the dealership where you purchased the service contract for a repair covered under the service contract. If you go to another dealership for a covered repair, you will have to pay the $100 deductible.

What is the Commercial-Use Surcharge?

The Commercial-use surcharge provides your vehicle with coverage if you intend to use your Buick for activities such as jobsite activities, delivery of goods, service or repair work, farming, ranching, route work, or snow removal. The Commercial-Use Surcharge is paid at the time of contract purchase.

Does the Commercial-Use Surcharge exclude any Buick vehicles?

Is coverage under the Protection Service Contract transferable to a subsequent owner?

Should you sell your covered Buick to another individual, any remaining coverage under the Protection Service Contract may be transferred to the new owner prior to the service contract’s expiration date. Within 30 days of the transfer of ownership, you must send the completed Transfer Request form and pay any applicable fee to the administrator.

For used Buick vehicles, when does the Protection Service Contract or term of the contract start and end?
