You Have GMC Warranty Questions, Smith Motors Has Answers

A GMEPP Warranty can protect your vehicle from unforeseen repairs

When purchasing a vehicle, we all envision how the car will run. We can picture ourselves cruising down a back road with the windows down and the radio blaring, or we see ourselves embarking on an adventure with suitcases stacked high in the trunk. But do we visualize how our new car will run in three years? Five years? Ten years? When offered a warranty at a local dealership, it’s easy to feel pressured into buying one. Who wouldn’t want to insure their vehicle from future costly repairs? But what if there was a better option? With cheap, aftermarket extended warranties posing a constant temptation, we must stop and decide what’s really important in a warranty—a task that Smith Motors can answer with ease.  

Better, Reliable, Nationwide

With extended warranties offered left and right, it is often difficult to understand how one varies from another and which ones are the most beneficial. Many dealers or third-party insurers offer costly warranties—warranties that usually include a substantial exclusion list. So which warranty should car buyers choose to ensure that they are not disadvantaged in the future? When buying a GM product, a GMEPP warranty is always the most dependable choice. With special features like transferable contracts, repairs for failures caused by wear and tear, and the honoring of your contract by all GM dealerships, a GMC warranty is always there to protect.

How Do I Obtain a GMC Warranty?

After deciding that a GMC warranty is the best option for you, the next step in the process is receiving a quote from a licensed GMEPP (General Motors extended protection plan) dealer. When receiving a quote, a few pieces of crucial information are needed: the year, make, model, odometer miles, VIN number, drivetrain (two or four-wheel), average miles driven per year, and the years of coverage needed. After receiving a quote, you can decide on the amount of time or the mileage you want covered (all contracts start from the date of purchase with the current odometer mileage and end when either the selected time or mileage is reached). Even if your included warranty is still functional, it is best to purchase an extended warranty right away to ensure that you avoid paying higher prices in the future (due to market fluctuation).

Which Plan is Best for Me?

You have a quote, you chose the amount of time for which your vehicle will be covered, but now you’re left with one more difficult decision—Silver or Platinum? Though both warranties provide excellent protection for your GM vehicle, they do cover different parts and offer different services.
