Vehicle Protection Plan for Used+ Vehicles

What is a Used+ Special Offer?
Used+ Special Offers make it easy to get an up-front price from the dealership on the specific car you want. You'll also have a personal contact at the dealership when you're ready to buy. Used vehicles marked as Used+ that also have a price strikethrough come with a special discount (available once you submit your contact details to the dealer).  And with our Used+ vehicle protection plan, we provide you with an extended warranty and 12 months roadside assistance, which means peace of mind, time saved, and less stress (works with qualified used vehicles only). Additionally, our program offers you a free gift card on qualified purchases.  Please click here for more details on the program.

What is the vehicle protection plan?
The vehicle protection plan is an extended 30 day/1,000 mile warranty and 12 months of full roadside assistance coverage. 

How do I activate the vehicle protection coverage?
Once you have submitted your information for the Used+ offer, you will receive an email confirmation certificate, as well as redemption links and instructions. The vehicle protection plan can then be activated after purchasing the vehicle.

How long after the vehicle purchase do I have to activate the vehicle protection plan?
You have 7 days after purchasing the vehicle to activate the vehicle protection plan.

Where do I bring the vehicle back for any needed warranty/repair work?
You can take your vehicle to any licensed repair facility in the U.S. or Canada.

Will I receive a card or something indicating the vehicle has a vehicle protection plan?
Yes. Once you have activated the coverage through the redemption emails, you will receive a contract ID number and a printable card with all the necessary contract information.

Does Edmunds administer the warranty, or is it from a third-party?
The vehicle protection plan is powered by CARCHEX, a third-party extended warranty company.

What does the 30 day extended warranty NOT cover?

Do all used cars on Edmunds qualify for the Vehicle Protection Plan?
