Coverage and Benefits
What type of coverages and plans are available?
GMPP offers three levels coverage.

This service contract's exclusionary coverage will cover virtually every component of your GM car or truck when there is a mechanical failure after the original warranty –even if it simply wears out. Major Guard also includes Alternate Transportation and Roadside Assistance.
– Value Guard protects your vehicle and protects your budget. This
protection plan offers a wide range of coverage for new and used vehicles and
is endorsed by General Motors. Value Guard covers the costs of labor and parts
for nine major assemblies if a mechanical failure occurs after the original warranty–even
if the component simply wears out. Value Guard also includes Alternate Transportation
– Basic Guard covers many of the most costly components on your vehicle.
Endorsed by General Motors, Basic Guard covers four critical assemblies. Both
the costs for labor and parts are covered if there is a mechanical failure after

How does the rental plan work?
GMPP will pay the costs to rent another vehicle or pay the cost for
public transportation. The limit is $35 each day with a maximum of $175 for each
repair visit with a Major Guard or a Value Guard contract.
The service or repair must require at least two hours of labor time as per the
GM time guide or needs to be held overnight in the
repair facility. (See contract details.)
In the event of a parts delay, the maximum amount per repair visit will be raised
to $280. The GMPP must be told of the delay during the first five days of
the rental period. Reimbursements for rentals are only for rentals from
licensed rental agencies or GM dealerships.
