Automotive Protection Programs Offered Through Nissan and Infiniti Dealers

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, May 8, 2014 /CNW/ - Safe-Guard Canada is pleased to announce a new partnership with Nissan Canada Extended Services Inc. (NCESI). Protection plans administered by Safe-Guard Canada will be available to Nissan and Infiniti buyers and lessees in 219 dealer showrooms across Canada beginning in Q3 2014.

Products and Services offered will include:

  • Tire & Rim Protection: Covers the cost of tire repair or replacement in the event of damage due to a road hazard and wheel replacement when damage to the wheel prevents a seal between the tire and rim. Cosmetic coverage takes the worry out of minor scrapes when parking.
  • Lease End Protection: Enhances the lease experience by providing financial protection for common excess wear and use charges.
  • GAP: Protects the customer in the event of a total loss of the vehicle by waiving the difference in the customer's actual cash value and the balance of the finance agreement.
  • Paintless Dent Removal: Permanently removes dings and dents from vertical and horizontal surfaces of the vehicle without harming the factory finish.
  • Windshield Protection: Repair of front windshield due to cracks or chips caused by rocks or road debris.
  • Appearance Protection (Exterior & Interior): Exterior protection to ensure the vehicles finish remains beautiful for years to come. Interior protection covers damage from everyday use and spills.
  • Key Replacement Protection: Covers the replacement of the primary vehicle key up to $800, plus $250 for replacement of additional keys on secondary key ring as well as lock-out assistance.
  • In addition, a dedicated field team will support the existing Vehicle Service Contract and Pre-Paid Maintenance products offered by NCESI.
