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.

How to Choose the Right Premium Vehicle Warranty When Purchasing a New Car

2017-02-20T17:15:16+00:00February 20th, 2017|luxury, New Vehicles, premium, Warranties|

With our class-leading comprehensive warranty programs offered directly from premium automotive brands, customers at Santa Barbara Auto Group can feel at ease on the road.

The process of purchasing a vehicle is a complex one with many different factors to consider. For instance, what kind of performance are you looking for? What style suits your personality? What functional aspects do you need to supplement your lifestyle? How much do you value technology and safety systems? Amongst these more exciting aspects to consider, there is one factor that is often over-looked, but really plays a significant role as the owner of a luxury vehicle – that is your vehicle warranty.

Warranties Directly from the Manufacturer

At Santa Barbara Auto Group, we are proud to be authorized dealers of eight different premium luxury brands including: Acura, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and smart. One of the benefits of being an authorized dealership for these brands is that we are given exclusive access to the best comprehensive warranty programs that come directly from the manufacturer. When searching for a new luxury vehicle, it is very important to understand the warranty program that will apply to your purchase. Many dealerships offer third-party warranties that aren’t backed by the automaker and tend to be bad deals when examined closely. Customers at Santa Barbara Auto Group have the advantage of gaining access to class-leading warranties directly from the brand manufacturers.

Questions to Consider when Choosing your Warranty Program

  • Do you plan on keeping the car for a long time?

If so, then considering an extended warranty program is a good idea, but if you tend to get tired of your vehicle after 2-3 years, then an extended warranty is not probably necessary.

  • Who stands behind the warranty?

Make sure the warranty is backed by the automaker and not a third-party. Warranties backed by third parties are usually only recognized by the dealership you purchased through, while warranties backed by the automaker are recognized by every authorized dealer around the country.

  • Have you shopped for the best price?

If you wait until your sitting down to purchase a vehicle before considering a warranty, it’s unlikely you will get the chance to thoroughly compare prices. Do some research before the purchasing process.

  • Do you know exactly what is covered?

This is an obviously important question when purchasing a warranty. Consider your past repairs and what recurring problems you’ve experienced to help guide you in your decision.

  • Will it give you peace of mind?

If you are the type of person that will benefit from the safety net of purchasing a comprehensive warranty, then it is a good idea. However, if you feel confident that you’ve purchased a reliable vehicle, then it might be okay to purchase a warranty with less coverage.

At Santa Barbara Auto Group, our friendly and knowledgeable sales representatives are ready to help you through every aspect of the purchasing process. So visit our dealership and be reassured that you’re making all the right choices when buying your next vehicle.
