About Select Auto Protect

Select Auto Protect provides three extended auto warranty plans that help cover the cost of unexpected repairs after a car’s original manufacturer’s warranty runs out. Car owners will find coverage for various auto components and systems under its warranties.

Pros & Cons


  • Unlimited number of claims
  • Directly pays repair shop
  • Use any ASE-certified mechanic


  • No online cost information
  • No instant quotes

Bottom Line

Select Auto Protect provides three coverage options and payment plans for a customized contract, but you have to call for quotes. You can take your car to any ASE-certified mechanic and make as many claims as you need.

What is Select Auto Protect?

Select Auto Protect offers extended car warranty plans that cover repair and replacement expenses after your vehicle’s original manufacturer’s warranty expires.

There’s no limit to the number of claims you can make, and the company’s agents are available 24/7. You can take your car to any ASE-certified technician. If the facility can’t repair the covered part, Select Auto Protect pays to replace it. The company pays the shop directly — you don’t have to worry about paying the bill upfront and waiting for reimbursement.

Select Auto Protect plans

Select Auto Protect has three plans to choose from.

This is the company’s most basic plan. It provides coverage for:
  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Cooling system
  • Brake system
  • Electrical system
  • Drive axle
  • Trip interruption
  • Gas refill
  • Roadside assistance
  • Rental car
The Select Gold plan covers everything under Select Silver plus lockouts and the vehicle’s steering system.
The company’s Select Platinum plan includes everything in Select Gold and adds coverage for:
  • ABS brakes
  • Air conditioning system
  • Heating system
  • Fuel system
  • Turbocharger/supercharger
  • Hi-tech equipment
  • Front suspension
  • Back suspension
  • AWD/four-wheel drive

Select Auto Protect coverage

Select Auto Protect covers all makes and models, and the company covers cars of all ages. It only requires that your vehicle is in good working condition when you obtain your warranty.

Select Auto Protect also doesn’t ask for any in-person inspections. You simply provide them with your VIN and the current odometer reading. The company doesn’t list what states it’s available in.

Select Auto Protect cost

Select Auto Protect doesn’t have any price points, fees, deductibles or other cost information on its site. Its main webpage shows you can get an instant, free quote online, but submitting the form simply displays a thank you message and lets you know your message has been sent.

Extended vehicle warranty plans typically cost around $2,500, but that figure is heavily influenced by your car’s age and mileage and the coverage level you select. You can compare your Select Auto Protect quote to that figure for a better idea of your plan’s value.

Select Auto Protect FAQ

Does Select Auto Protect require a vehicle inspection?

No, the company only requests your VIN and the current odometer reading to purchase a plan.

Select Auto Protect lets you choose any ASE-certified technician in the country.

How are Select Auto Protect claims paid?

Select Auto Protect pays the repair facility directly, and you pay your deductible separately. Select Auto Protect doesn’t require any paperwork or for you to pay the bill first and then be reimbursed at a later time.

Do we recommend Select Auto Protect?

Select Auto Protect is an established company with a selection of warranty and payment plans that make it simpler to find the right fit. It’s easier to find a mechanic you trust because you can use any ASE-certified technician. You also don’t have to worry about any upfront payments because the company pays the shop’s bill directly. Select Auto Protect doesn’t display any pricing or fee information online, however, which makes it more difficult to compare to other companies.

I was promised the best auto warranty in the business. They put me through the multiple steps to file a claim and after three weeks told the dealership (not me) that my claim was denied. Since then I've tried at least a dozen times to reach the salesperson or the person handling my claim. No one has yet called me back.

    Will not cover a claim that happened after the transmission failed, after the warranty was in effect. Spoke to managers, apparently they wanted to send me money back instead. The manager was completely unprofessional, and Adam is a dirty salesmen.

    Stay away. Completely dishonest. Won't pay the claim. Won't be around - they will be gone with your money. I had Platinum coverage. Had a power steering go out. They would not cover it because there was an unknown fluid leak in a complete rack and pinion one piece. The dealer was flabbergasted. This is not a real company. This is fraudulent. Try anyone else. I don't think they are all this bad.

    Reviewed Oct. 3, 2022

    Be aware that they offer a 30-day money back guarantee but you cannot have any repairs until you reach the 30-days and 1,000 miles. After two payments I was denied a fuel module repair on my Audi. The repair totaled less than my two payments already made. They denied it stating that the module was not covered under the fuel system. The warranty lists vaguely that the fuel system is covered on their top tier Platinum warranty. When I requested my money back they only offered to provide one payment back. Completely unacceptable when a policy is costing well over $2k to begin with.
