Looking over the information. Is it my understanding by reading this, most of the diesel emissions, sensors and such is not covered? If so it seem not worth getting for the most part. I would imagine the DEF system would be part of the emissions, correct? What do you guys think?

[FONT=&quot]Exclusion List[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Components that are not covered are those listed on the Exclusion List:[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]A. Any of the following parts: carburetor, battery and battery cable/harness (unless listed as specific covered parts), standard transmission clutch assembly, friction clutch disc and pressure plate, distributor cap and rotor, glass, lenses, sealed beams, light bulbs, fuses, circuit breakers, cellular phones, game centers, AM/FM radio/cassette/CD players exceeding $3,000 repair or replacement cost, speakers, audio/video equipment, pixel damage due to impact on display screens, key fobs, tire pressure sensors, remote control consoles, radar detection devices, brake rotors and drums, all exhaust components, and the following emission components: EGR purge valve/solenoids/sensors, vacuum canister, vapor return canister, vapor return lines/valves, air pump/lines/valves, catalytic converter/filtering/sensors, emission vapor sensors, gas cap/filler neck, weather strips, trim, moldings, bright metal chrome, upholstery and carpet, paint, outside ornamentation, bumpers, body sheet metal and panels, frame and structural body parts, vinyl and convertible tops, any convertible top assemblies, hardware or linkages, tires and wheels/rims.

Filters, lubricants, coolants, fluids, and refrigerants will be covered only if replacement is required in connection with a breakdown. [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]C.

[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]D. Any breakdown caused by misuse, abuse, negligence, lack of normal maintenance required by the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule for your vehicle, or improper servicing or repairs subsequent to purchase. Any breakdown caused by sludge buildup resulting from your failure to perform recommended maintenance services, or failure to maintain proper levels of lubricants and/or coolants, or breakdowns caused by fuels containing more than 10 percent ethanol (if the engine was not manufactured for this fuel mixture), or failure to protect your vehicle from further damage when a breakdown has occurred or failure to have your vehicle towed to the service facility when continued operation June result in further damage. Continued operation includes your failure to observe warning lights, gauges, or any other signs of overheating or component failure, such as, fluid leakage, slipping, knocking, or smoking, and not protecting your vehicle by continuing to drive, creating damage beyond the initial failure. [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]E. Any repair or replacement of any covered part if a breakdown has not occurred. Any part that a repair facility or manufacturer recommends or requires be replaced or repaired or is an update, and is not a breakdown, is your responsibility and expense. [/FONT]

Any alterations that have been made to your vehicle or use of your vehicle in a manner not recommended by the manufacturer, including but not limited to the failure of any custom or add-on part, all frame or suspension modifications, lift kits, any tire that is not recommended by the original manufacturer if it creates an odometer/speedometer variance of greater than 4 percent, and trailer hitches. Also not covered are any emissions and/or exhaust systems modifications, engine modifications, transmission modifications, and/or drive axle modifications, which includes any performance modifications. [/FONT]

It is changing here in the future. Here is the e-mail I received.

[FONT=&quot]Please find below more information on the Chevrolet Protection Plans (GMEPP), pricing, and what we need to put a policy in place.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Here’s a YouTube video from Chevrolet on the Plan:[/FONT]

I am also including the pricing for a GM Protection Plan.
If you reside in any of the following states you are not eligible for a GM Protection Plan, but you are eligible for a Chevrolet Protection Plan:
Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, and Florida.
[FONT=&quot]NOTE: GM will be announcing a price increase any day. [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]If you purchase a Chevrolet Protection Plan from me before the end of June and before any announced increase I am discounting my already discounted GMEPP prices $200![/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Differences between the old GMPP and the new Chevrolet Protection Plan:[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]GMPP is a product of Ally Bank[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]GMPP will no longer be available in the near future[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Ally will not have access to GM records and the submission of claims by dealers June be not be transparent to the customer[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Chevrolet Protection Plan (GMEPP) is a product of General Motors[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Chevrolet Protection Plan (GMEPP) offers the same coverage as GMPP with this additional benefit: * Coverage for ride control suspension & shocks[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]About the GM Extended Protection Plan[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Chevrolet-Buick-GMC-Cadillac is a Divisional Extended Protection Plan that provides premier coverage for your General Motors vehicle.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Affordable Protection[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]The Chevrolet-Buick-GMC-Cadillac Extended Protection Plan can alleviate unexpected and expensive repair costs. Even one covered repair can pay for the cost of the vehicle service contract.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Peace Of Mind From The People You Trust[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Certified Service experts stand behind repairs or service covered by the Chevrolet- Buick-GMC-Cadillac Program. Certified Service technicians know and understand every part of your Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle and use specialized diagnostic equipment and the right parts to complete your repair.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Covering MORE Between the Bumpers[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Many vehicle service contracts don’t cover certain items that can lead to other failures, like seals and gaskets. We do. In fact, most mechanical and electronic components of your vehicle are covered against mechanical breakdown.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]With the Chevrolet-Buick-GMC-Cadillac Protection Plan, you'll have coverage for many components, including wear and tear and seals and gaskets which are not covered on many other plans on your vehicle. With the increasing complexity of today's vehicles and high-tech features, the Chevrolet-Buick-GMC-Cadillac Protection Plan is the best way to ensure that you are covered against potential expensive repairs.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]In the event of a covered component failure, even when it is the result of normal wear and tear, you're protected. Chevrolet-Buick-GMC-Cadillac Platinum coverage is an exclusionary coverage. That means that everything is covered on your vehicle unless it is on the exclusion list.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]What are Protection Plans?[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Your vehicle June be complex, but protecting yourself from potentially expensive repair costs doesn't have to be. We make our plans easy to understand, so you know exactly what you are getting.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Protection Plans come with extras beyond coverage for repairs, including lost key & lockout coverage, trip interruption coverage, towing, and rental car.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]If a breakdown occurs, you'll also have access to our Certified Service technicians found at any one of over 4,000 GM dealerships nationwide. The technicians at our dealerships are specially trained and work on GM vehicles like yours every day. They can even use parts with the same quality that went into the assembly of your vehicle.

Yeah, I looked at the that new one. From a forum member who's judgement I trust, the Platinum is not go good. The pricing I got was a heck of a lot more expensive and the coverage not as good. The way the plan works is different - and it seems to me to encourage the dealer to skimp on the repairs. I went with Major Guard.
