Beat the Protection Plan Price Increase!

With Chevy’s recent announcement of a decrease in powertrain coverage from 60 months/100,000 miles to 60 months/60,000 miles I am certain that we will see a price increase for protection plans.

The price tables assume the overlap of protection plan with the base factory warranty.

Further, the new Protection Plans from GM Financial (GMEPP – Chevrolet, GMC, Buick, Cadillac Protection Plans) consider a vehicle “new” as long as the base bumper to bumper warranty has not expired. Therefore, a decrease in powertrain coverage for a 2016 model may have an impact on the plan pricing for any vehicle that is still considered “new” regardless of the model year, i.e. 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016.

Therefore, I am recommending that you purchase your protection plan in June before new prices are announced in July as 2016 production begins!

Remember, the prices that I offer on protection plans are not subject to sales tax and no charge for accepting a credit card.

I am offering both GMPP from Ally and GMEPP from GM Financial.

We can sell GMEPP in every state on vehicles that are 10 years old and with less than 120,000 miles.

We can sell GMPP on vehicles that are within the original bumper to bumper warranty and in all states EXCEPT for: Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Kentucky, Maryland, and Florida.

Have bought my last two price protection plans on my Corvettes from Ken. Encourage all comtemplating buying one, to at least contact Ken, as his price was the best on both.

Am considering purchasing the gmepp. However, is there a benefit to buying now with 200 miles and waiting till 12000? My understanding is the warranty extends from time of purchase therefore if you get 100k, you'd be out till 112000 vice 100200.?
And is there a time limit, I believe 1 year before you can't get the 100k/84?

Wait till 1 year anniversary or 12k, whichever is first.

The GMEPP can be purchased anytime up until your car is 10 years old and with less than 120K miles.

HOWEVER, the prices increase annually, and they increase as you accumulate miles.

A car that is still within the original 36 month/36K bumper to bumper warranty is considered "new" and thus is eligible for a lower price than one outside of the bumper to bumper warranty.

Certainly, one can wait if they choose.

I have been recommending purchasing a plan now instead of waiting for this reason:
GM has updated the dealer pricing and application website for the GM Extended Protection Plan.
As of TODAY the pricing for a 2016 is the same as it was for a 2015!
This won’t last long when they realize that they didn’t take into consideration the decrease in powertrain warranty from 100K to 60K miles.
This price increase will affect pricing for any Corvette that is within the original bumper to bumper warranty.

And, as the age of your car increases, the available time and mileage options change.

Finally, here's a comparison for you to consider:
Purchase an 84 month/75000 mile/$0 deductible plan today for $2115 ($2215 less $100 discount) on a new Corvette
Purchase a 48 month/48000 mile/$0 deductible plan today on a Corvette that is 35 months old and with less than 36K miles for $2885
Both plans would end at the same time and same miles. Waiting costs $770 more and doesn’t take any price increase into consideration.

Have a great day!
