OK, so we were able to get the vehicle qualified for a CERTIFIED plan for the next 3 years and 36K miles whichever comes first. That can be renewed for as long as you own the vehicle.
The program is going to pay for parts and labor on all covered repairs to the major systems of the vehicle minus a ($100) deductible.
That includes things like:
- The ENGINE:
- The TRANSMISSION:
- The DRIVE AXLES:
- The AIR CONDITIONING system:
- The FUEL system:
- And, really important, the ELECTRICAL:
That gives you an idea of how comprehensive the coverage is. It says here you’re still responsible for the maintenance like oil changes, brake pads, tires, etc. Are you keeping up with the maintenance?
Ok, with CERTIFIED you can take the vehicle to any licensed mechanic or dealership. You won’t be required to take it to a participation center.
It doesn’t matter what the repair cost is, even if it’s a small ($500-$600) repair or larger one like a transmission replacement – you’re just responsible for that $100 deductible.
Most importantly, claims processing is smooth and easy for CERTIFIED members – the administrators pay claims directly over the phone with a corporate credit card, which means NO reimbursement plans like you would have with the standard ones.
Does all that make sense?
Now, quickly, the benefits with CERTIFIED include:
- 24/7 roadside service with towing.
- And it will provide a rental car with any agency you choose if the car is in the shop.
Unless you have any questions about the program, I’m going to pull the rate now and go over the terms.
