Frequently Asked Questions:
I already have auto insurance, why do I need an extended vehicle service contract?
Precision Auto Protection covers you in similar ways that auto insurance covers your vehicle in case of an accident. The difference is Precision Auto Protection will cover you for the mechanical breakdowns. If your transmission was to go out your auto insurance is not going to cover a penny of the repair cost, with Precision Auto Protection the cost will be covered in full, your auto insurance company would not pay anything for that repair.
My dealers already sold me a service contract when I purchased my vehicle. Why should I get a new one?
The protection plan that you purchased at your dealer will expire sooner than later. It has an expiration date. When the coverage is expired you are vulnerable to the high cost of getting your vehicle repaired regardless of the breakdown. Precision Auto Protection will be able to help you with a peace of mind knowing that you are covered in case of a breakdown, again it’s not a question of what will happen the question is when.
How soon can I make a claim with my new service contract?
You can make your first claim after 30 days and 1000 miles. The reason we have to do this is because we have noticed people have tried to abuse the system and get a vehicle serviced with an existing mechanical problem. Unfortunately we cannot cover any existing issues; all of our policies have a grace period of 30 days and 1000 miles.
Are you affiliated with any dealers/factory warranty plans?
Precision Auto Protection is not affiliated with any dealership or factory warranty dealer. The vehicle service plans that Precision Auto Protection offer are different from the dealer warranty. With our service plans you don’t have to worry about your dealership going out of business and losing your coverage, with your service protection plan with Precision Auto Protection you can bring your vehicle to any certified ASE mechanic shop.
What happens if I need a rental car?
Many of our programs allow you to get rental car reimbursement. You don’t have to worry about not being able to get around while your vehicle is being repaired. The coverage plans do vary so depending on what plan you have just call the toll free number on your vehicle protection card for assistance.
What if I plan on selling my car in a couple of years? Will my service contract carry over to the new owner?
Yes, the vehicle service contract is fully transferable. This may even help you in selling the vehicle saving the new owner money on getting a new one or in the case of a breakdown.
