Two cars produced in three years. Near bankruptcy. High debt with the main financial backer wanting to quit. Engineer leaving. All of these things sound like a recipe for disaster, right? Well in this case, for David Dunbar Buick, it was a recipe for success.
William Durant, founder of General Motors, was the owner of the nation’s leading horse-drawn vehicle company at the same time that David was struggling to keep his company afloat. Once William took an interest in the Buick Motor Company, it was immediately incorporated and moved from Detroit to Flint, Michigan. Before the company had even produced 40 Buicks, he was able to receive over 1,000 orders at a New York Car show.
From booming success during the Roaring 20’s to feeling the hit of the Great Depression, Buick has managed to maintain its image and reputation as one of the most dependable vehicles on the market today. There was a reason you chose a Buick over other cars. The luxury feel of the vehicle along with its reliability makes it very marketable and appealing.
In order to protect your Buick for years to come, you need a GMPP.
How Does an Extended Protection Plan Benefit Me?
That’s a great question to ask before you invest in an extended protection plan! Unexpected bills can be the cause of great stress—especially when they are expensive, like vehicle repair bills often are. A General Motors Protection Plan (GMPP) is a fantastic way to make sure that after the basic factory warranty is up, your vehicle is still covered in case there is an issue. Smith Chevrolet can help you set up the only official GMPP!
Which Plan Should I Choose?
Both plans offer great coverage! The plan that you choose will depend on what you feel is best for you and your vehicle. The GMPP Silver Warranty will help cover components of nine vehicle assembly areas; however, the GMPP Platinum Warranty offers more extensive coverage of electrical and mechanical components, even if the damage is a result of standard wear and tear!
If your car is in the shop and you need other means of transportation, don’t worry! With the Platinum Plan, you’ll be reimbursed for any costs associated with alternate transportation. Along with the transportation reimbursement, you also have roadside assistance available with both options.
What Is Included With Roadside Assistance?
There is a lot included with roadside assistance! Having car trouble while traveling is a drag for any trip. Even though Buicks are very reliable vehicles, issues may still arise while on the road. A GMPP will alleviate the stress associated with this problem!
If an issue occurs, call the 24-hour toll-free number, and help will be on its way for any of these services:
- Flat tire change
- Battery jump
- Locksmith/Key service (not available in Kansas)
- Out-of-gas fuel delivery
How Much Does a GMPP Cost for My Buick?
It depends! A lot of different factors go into the final price of a GMPP including model, age, odometer mileage, and whether the car was bought new or used. Additionally, the price will vary depending on what level of coverage, deductible, and month/mileage you select. The best way to find out is to get a free quote!
