We all love our new cars, and want to keep them in that mint condition, but New England roads (and sometimes other drivers) have other things in mind.  From an accident, to dings from a pebble, potholes and parking lots, it takes a toll.   So, to offset the expenses that can come with such situations,  Patriot Subaru has an array of Protection Plans designed to help you if the "what if" happens.

Protection Plans That Make Sense

The nice thing is that each plan covers a different topic, so you can choose one or several programs to suit your needs. Our Finance and Insurance (F&I) specialists are here to walk through the plans with you, and assemble a program to your specifications.  We offer four specific vehicle protection plans, which include:

    Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP):  If your vehicle is declared a total loss due to accident, GAP coverage alleviates the financial burden by waiving all or part of the remaining loan balance.  Since other parties may have a financial stake in the matter, GAP addresses everyone involved in the loan process.

    • Decreasing or eliminating additional your out-of-pocket expenses
    • Protecting your credit history
    • Relieving the losses of the lender from an unpaid balance

    You can purchase GAP coverage at the time of purchase, so be sure to ask about it when you're going through the loan process.  The same coverage is provided if your vehicle is stolen. Notice we did not say "lost or stolen"  - if you plain lost it....well...that's a hard one to cover!

    Vehicle Service Contracts (VSC):  WIth a Vehicle Service Contract, you will add protection against unexpected mechanical or electrical failure. The WiseTVP plan consists of benefits including towing, car rental, trip interruption, emergency roadside assistance and tire road hazard coverage.

    Appearance Care Service Contracts (ACS):   Keep that new car look by applying an Appearance Care plan such as WiseCare.  This offers protection to both interior and exterior surfaces from unsightly dents, dings, and tears.  Coverage may include paintless dent repair, windshield repair, wheel repair and interior or exterior surface repair.  The plan may also include 24/7 roadside assistance with key replacement.  It is not just for brand new cars either - WiseCARE offers an ACS plans that can manage costs for cosmetic repairs to any vehicle, whether new or pre-driven - regardless of its mileage and pre-driven vehicles up to 8 years of age.

    Tire and Wheel Protection (TWP):   No one beats a pothole,and nails can ruin a day.   Aside from a flat tire, you can have a damaged wheel,  that leads to other issues of steering and alignment. Tire and Wheel Protection plans save you the hassle of being jammed up with mounting expenses. TIREWise has  coverage including:  

    • Tire Repair/Replacement: If the tire can't be repaired, it will be replaced
    • Wheel Repair/Replacement: If the wheel is damaged and prevents the tire from holding air, it will be repaired or replaced
    • 24 Hour Roadside Assistance: Flat tire assistance and towing from road hazard damage
    • Mounting and Balancing
    • Rental Car Reimbursement
    • Trip Interruption
    • Alloy Wheel Cosmetic Damage Repair (optional coverage)
    As you can see, there are options. Taking a few moments with our F&I specialist while you are going thru financing, makes sense. No obligation, but all good information to know.
