Vehicle Protection Plans

Shield yourself from auto repair costs
VPP from Mountain America is an easy and affordable way to get extended warranty coverage on your vehicle.

Pay for repairs with VPP

You don’t need a new car to get new car peace of mind. With Mountain America’s vehicle protection plans (VPP)*, you can protect yourself against expensive mechanical breakdown or electrical repairs even after your vehicle’s basic warranty coverage has expired. VPP also provides comprehensive roadside assistance, nationwide coverage and the flexibility to select a repair shop of your choice.

The average new car is out of warranty in just two and a half years, and as time goes on, the likelihood of mechanical failure on your vehicle is inevitable. Advanced electronics, complex systems and increasing labor fees mean repairs may cost you thousands. VPP provides additional coverage to help pay for these expenses.
 

Protect your vehicle today

A vehicle protection plan can be purchased at any time—even if you don’t have a vehicle loan. It can also be financed into a new or existing auto loan from Mountain America. To see if your vehicle qualifies for VPP, call us at 1-800-748-4302.


*VPP is considered insurance coverage in some states. The purchase of VPP is optional. Whether or not you purchase VPP will not affect your application for credit or the terms of any existing credit agreement you have with our institution. There are eligibility requirements, conditions and exclusions that could prevent you from receiving benefits under VPP. You should carefully read the contract for a full explanation of the terms.
