Your car is essential to your way of life. Is it fully protected? Car insurance covers you in the event of an accident, but what if you car breaks down. What do you do? An extended vehicle protection plan from LaSalle, is like the other half of your vehicle's coverage. It protects you from the unexpected (yet inevitable) and expensive car repairs that car insurance does not. Here's how it works. You choose the level of coverage that's best for you and your vehicle. In the event of a breakdown, you choose the repair shop, you pay a deductible (choice of $100, $250, & 500), show your LaSalle membership card, and we take care of the rest. It's that simple.
When to Buy
The sooner the better! Even if your car is covered by the original factory warranty, now is the time to lock-in on a great rate. If you wait until your factory coverage is expired, or worse, if your car breaks down out of warranty, it will cost you more money in the long run. Can you imagine if you locked-in on a fixed gas price five years ago? Think how much that would have saved. Like other insurances, a warranty will be less expensive if you lock-in while your car has lower miles and is in better condition. Think about it. Vehicles are not like fine wine they don't age well with time. Over 86% of vehicles break down within the first two years of coverage expiring. Don't wait until it's too late. Get the coverage you need at a price you can afford today.
