Designed to Meet Your Needs

Select the Basic Guard term best for your situation. Coverage is offered based on years of anticipated ownership and annual mileage driven. Deductible choices are available from $0 to $200, meaning you can minimize unanticipated out-of-pocket expenses for covered repairs.

Basic Guard can be purchased at any time during the new vehicle warranty period, but the earlier you buy, the better the value. If a vehicle is out-of-warranty when it is purchased, Basic Guard can only be obtained at the time of vehicle purchase. You can even include Basic Guard as part of your monthly payment.

Repair paperwork is gone too, because everything is taken care of by your GM Dealer.

You may also enhance your vehicle’s value, because if you sell your vehicle, Basic Guard can be transferred to the new owner for a small administrative fee.

With Basic Guard, your vehicle is protected. Regardless of the term you select, Basic Guard will give you peace of mind for the long run.

Rely on Basic Guard to

  • Protect you from unexpected covered repair expenses
  • Ensure covered repairs are made by GM trained technicians or the facility of your choosing
