Vehicle Service Contracts

Vehicle Service Contracts from Zurich

South Hills Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram provides a full line of vehicle protection products sold exclusively through Zurich to help protect your automobile or truck.

Beyond Your Factory Warranty:

Modern cars and trucks are increasingly complex machines. With thousands of moving parts and sophisticated electronics, technicians require more training and shops required advanced equipment to keep your vehicle. Over time these factors have driven up the cost for consumers.  According to AAA, the costs associated with maintaining a vehicle had the single largest percentage increase from 2012 to 2013, growing by 11.26 percent. Today's cars are marvels of engineering, but eventually something will break. After your factory warranty expires, don't get stuck paying for your repairs out-of-pocket. Purchasing a vehicle service contract can save you thousands of dollars.

At South Hills, we recommend Zurich Vehicle Service Contracts to all of our customers. Zurich Vehicle Service Contracts provide coverage of parts and labor costs to repair or replace major components. Dealerships, and repair facilities across the United States and Canada will honor Zurich Vehicle Service Contracts. Another great benefit they provide is flexibility. The service contract can be purchased separately or easily attached to your monthly payment for a small amount each month. This will help to eliminate unexpected major repair costs. Your Zurich contract can be transferred to the next owner of your vehicle for a better resale price. You can actually recapture some of the cost of your service contract even after you've enjoyed its benefits. The greatest advantage Zurich provides is the ability to choose from five program options, allowing you to select the level of protection that's best for you.
