Warranty Programs through Santa Barbara Auto Group

Cilajet Exterior Protection covers the paint, and wear and tear on the exterior of the vehicle. Cilajet Car Paint Protection is a sealant that bonds with the exterior of the car at a micron level, causing a “mirror-like” finish. It reduces surface flaws such as webbing, fine scratches, oxidation, and fading. Cilajet repels adhering impurities, protects against corrosion, aids in reduced brake dust buildup and ultimately aids in reduced car washes. Five and ten-year warranties are offered based upon new or pre-owned vehicles.

Cilajet Interior Protection covers the unpredictable loose stitching, seam rips, tears and burns that occur within the first five years of ownership, as long as the imperfection is less than two inches long. FAB by Cilajet provides defense against stains from food and drink. This protection guarantees that all interior carpeting, mats, and fabric upholstery treated will be stain free. HIDE by Cilajet offers leather and vinyl seat protection through conditioning that thwarts discoloration and fading.

Ghost Shield Paint Protection Film is the only self-healing paint-protective coating in the world. The transparent film guarantees resistance from scratches, tears, and punctures in the paint. This invisible layer absorbs debris including rocks, trash, and insects on projected affected areas. Each package offers different areas of car coverage. This five-year warranty guarantees the area covered from bubbling, yellowing and cracking.

First Class Paintless Dent Repair covers the cost to repair dents and dings throughout the life of the contract of the vehicle without affecting the factory finish.

First Class Wheel and Tire Protection covers the costs for wheel and/or tire replacement and includes the labor to mount, balance, replace/repair valve system, taxes, and towing. It also includes repair costs from cosmetic damages to original equipment, and replacement wheels and tires during the contract period. Rental reimbursement is an option to consider.

First Class Windshield Protection covers any costs due to damages from the road to the windshield. This includes cracks, stars, chips, and scratches.

First Class Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP) protects against unfortunate incidences such as theft, collisions and natural disaster resulting in a total loss. It covers the value between balance owed and balance paid on the vehicle. Also offered through the GAP protection through Santa Barbara Auto Group is the out-of-pocket expense of insurance deductibles up to $1,000.00.

LoJack coverage works with local police to track down the stolen vehicle. This device is undetectable to thieves and has a 90% recovery rate. Upgrades available include, LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System (LJU), LoJack Early Warning (EW), Extended Recovery System (XRW), and Guarantee Plus 5000 (GP5000). All aid in the quick recovery of your vehicle. Visit us at Santa Barbara Auto Group for further questions regarding LoJack and other useful warranty options.

Drive Worry-Free with Luxury Warranty Plans

2016-11-07T19:20:48+00:00November 14th, 2016|Santa Barbara Auto Group, Warranties|

Southern California drivers of luxury vehicles enjoy peace of mind with comprehensive warranty programs offered by the premium automotive brands offered at Santa Barbara Auto Group.

As summer comes to a close, fall and winter begin to dictate the weather. This means drivers must expect to encounter more threatening terrain and driving conditions. At this time of year, the likelihood of running into automotive problems is substantially greater, so it is important to be prepared if something should occur. Santa Barbara Auto Group offers comprehensive warranties to calm drivers’ nerves!

Why Warranties?

Often over-looked, a warranty is a very important aspect to consider when making the decision to purchase a new vehicle. With common uncontrollable risks like theft, collision, or natural disaster, luxury vehicles are at a higher risk of loss. Santa Barbara Auto Group offers customers class-leading warranties on premium vehicles allowing customers to feel confident that their vehicle is receiving premium brand parts, repairs, and maintenance by highly trained brand-specific professionals.

“We offer warranties on eight different luxury brand vehicles including Acura, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and smart. Customers can be sure that their vehicle is going to run at peak performance for as long as possible,” said General Sales Manager at Santa Barbara Auto Group, Duane Sanders.

Brand-Specific Warranty Programs

Understanding the specific benefits that a warranty offers is an important step in the process of shopping for a car. For example, Audi’s Pure Protection warranty program offers a wide variety of different coverage plans allowing for the customer to be the engineer of his/her own program. Audi drivers can opt for the Platinum coverage plan, in which virtually every aspect of your vehicle is protected by warranty. This has been described as the “Ultimate Peace of Mind” because it assures the driver that in any unfortunate automotive situation his out-of-pocket expenses will be covered. If a customer doesn’t feel the need for this kind of universal protection, there are several options that slim down the coverage to focus more on commonly occurring issues.

Another example of a comprehensive brand-specific warranty is Jaguar’s Vehicle Protection Plan. When purchasing this plan through Jaguar Santa Barbara your deductible is guaranteed waived upon bringing the vehicle into the specialists. This plan also includes Roadside Assistance.

“It pays off to be prepared,” said Sanders, “and who better to take care of your vehicle than technicians trained specifically for your brand.” Santa Barbara Auto Group offers a wide array of warranty benefits when purchasing a premium luxury vehicle.

Enjoy Peace of Mind with Premium Vehicle Warranties

2016-03-23T11:15:10+00:00March 23rd, 2016|Maintenance, Warranties|

Luxury drivers enjoy greater confidence thanks to the class-leading comprehensive warranty programs offered by the premium automotive brands sold at Santa Barbara Auto Group.

When it comes time to purchase a new or certified pre-owned vehicle there are many factors to consider. What kind of performance are you looking for? What designs speak to your personality? What kind of functionality do you need for your lifestyle? What technology and safety systems are important to you? While all of these questions are important, there is another aspect of vehicle ownership that is often looked over but plays an important role in your ownership experience – your vehicle warranty.

Luxury Brands Set the Standard for Warranty Care

When searching for a car, it is very important to understand the warranty program that will apply to your purchase. Thankfully, when you choose to purchase a premium vehicle you can have peace of mind knowing your car comes with class-leading coverage. At Santa Barbara Auto Group, we are proud to represent eight luxury brands including Acura, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and smart. All of these brands offer class-leading warranty programs for their new and certified pre-owned vehicles. This way, drivers can have confidence that their new car will continue to run at peak performance for a long time. We also offer an expert team of trained brand technicians to provide services, maintenance, and repairs as necessary so you know your vehicle is getting the best care possible.

Leading Warranty Programs

So, when shopping for a new car, take a moment to understand the warranty benefits offered. For example, Mercedes-Benz offers an extensive certified pre-owned warranty program that now includes unlimited miles for 12 months. Before the certified pre-owned warranty even goes into effect, each Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned (MBCPO) Vehicle is first covered by the remaining portion of the original Mercedes-Benz four-year/50,000 mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Once the vehicle reaches the year or mileage maximum, the MBCPO vehicle is no longer covered by the new vehicle warranty and the MBCPO Limited Warranty can immediately take effect.   For MBCPO vehicles that are not eligible for the New Vehicle Warranty, the MBCPO Limited Warranty takes effect at the time of delivery so there is still no gap in coverage.

Another brand that prides itself in warranty coverage is BMW. BMW offers a convenient and affordable maintenance plan known as the BMW No-Cost Maintenance plan. This plan covers regularly scheduled maintenance needs for the first 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For drivers who want even more coverage, there is also the BMW Maintenance Program Upgrade which increases the coverage to 6 years or 100,000 miles.

Thanks to strong warranty and maintenance programs, drivers have peace of mind knowing they can maintain a consistent service and check-up routine to keep their car in top condition. At Santa Barbara Auto Group we make this process even easier by offering a Scheduled Maintenance Guide online which outlines the services your vehicle requires and when they need to be performed. By staying on top of these simple services, you can help prevent major services or repairs in the long-term and enjoy top performance from your car for years to come.
