PartProtection offers three distinct types of policies:
PartProtection (Part) provides an extension of the manufacturer's warranty for an additional 24 months, covering the part for up to 60 months*/unlimited mileage from the date of purchase. This policy is available on applicable OEM parts purchased over the counter or online from a participating dealership, and covers up to the cost of a replacement Part.
PartProtection (Service) provides an extension of the participating warranty for an additional 24 months, covering the part for up to 60 months*/unlimited mileage from the date of purchase. This policy is available on applicable OEM parts purchased from, and installed by, a participating dealership's Service Department.
PartProtection (Wholesale) allows the participating dealer the ability to provide 60 months*, unlimited mileage Parts & Labor coverage** on parts sold to Independent Repair Facilities (IRF's). This allows the IRF to offer longer coverage to their customers, AND offers them labor protection that they would not typically get when purchasing OE parts from the dealer. Longer coverage and labor coverage translates into more of an effort by the IRF to sell the OE part instead of Aftermarket parts from their local auto parts store - and into more sales by the dealer.
*Manufacturer's warranties vary from 12–36 months. PartProtection offers an additional 24 months/unlimited miles extension of the base warranty provided by the manufacturer.
**PartProtection (Wholesale) labor rates are paid at $85/hour, and labor coverage begins 31 days after the date of purchase.
PartProtection offers an array of benefits to both the consumer and the new car dealership, and finally allows Original Equipment auto parts to be sold with extended coverages, in the consumer friendly fashion that Americans have become accustomed to when purchasing consumer electronics, home appliances, equipment from Home Depot, and even houses.
For the consumer, PartProtection provides:
Coverage of up to three times as long as the typical Original Equipment part warranty.
Both Parts & Labor coverage on jobs performed in the dealer's service department, greatly decreasing out of pocket expenses when a repair is needed.
Assurance that, as long as Original Equipment parts are available, replacement parts will be Original Equipment and not a substituted Used or Aftermarket part. Guaranteed. In writing.
Convenient online access to view any and all parts that have been purchased with PartProtection coverage, even if purchased at different times and from different dealers.
Peace of mind knowing that both your vehicle and your wallet are being protected in the best possible way.
