If there is one thing about CARS Protection Plus that its customers can depend on, it is its dedication to providing honest, transparent service. CARS Protection Plus honors all covered repairs, and all vehicle service contracts were designed with the user in mind. There are no cheap tricks or vague language to confuse the customer and cheat them out of money. Unfortunately, not all companies in this industry are CARS Protection Plus, and there are scammers out there who promise one thing but provide another. Here are a few red flags to watch out for when choosing a vehicle service contract provider:


You Are Getting Urgent Mailings: Fear is a great motivation for many things. It is not, however, a truthful way to sell vehicle service contracts. Unfortunately, some companies will try to scare potential customers by sending warnings about their warranty expiring and how that could lead to a financial disaster if something happens to their vehicle. The best vehicle service contract providers will not resort to these tactics and will instead focus on the positive features of the coverage.


You Are Dealing with a Pushy Salesman: If you are dealing with a representative that won’t take no for an answer, you may want to turn somewhere else. A salesman should be enthusiastic about what he’s selling, but you shouldn’t feel pressured. He or she should give you all of the details you need to make an informed decision, but he or she should also give you time and space. Don’t make a rash decision because of a pushy salesman. You should always ask for an explanation of your coverage in writing so you know what is exactly covered.


The Vehicle Service Contract Is Too Good to be True: You should shop around for an excellent product, but if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. A vehicle service contract shouldn’t be free or cover everything. Every vehicle service contract will have some limitations, so if you don’t see any, you should definitely do a little more investigating.


There Is No Company History or the Company Is Uninsured: In the vehicle service contract industry, reputation matters. History matters as well. CARS Protection Plus, for example, is insured and has a long track record of honest service. If the company you’re looking at doesn’t, look elsewhere.
