So you want to know about protect my car? The best knowledge is insider knowledge. So lets begin. How do they get your information to call you? Mainly thru you going on the internet looking for car insurance qoutes. They also run TV ads and radio ads in select states telling you they will fix EXISTING problems with your car. Stop. Lol...who does that right? Well apparently their elite ambassador plan does. So how does that work? Well first off its a negotiation plan that you pay for but comes with free oil changes. You pay them $3000+ over 42 months for free oil changes & tire rotations & 2 tows per year. Heres the catch. Lets say your tranny went out and your first estimate is for $2000. Take it to PMC and they will negotiate labor, get cheaper parts, and bring the estimate down to $1000. Since your contract states you are liable for 50% of the FIRST estimate guess how much you pay directly to PMC? $1000. Guess how much PMC pays? $0. Remember youre paying them $75-120 a month. Plus the $1000. Btw they only pay in repairs the BLUEBOOK value of car. How much is your 2002 car worth? You could do better going online for discount parts and negotiating labor yourself not to mention you still pay a monthly fee plus the $1000. For what? Free oil changes? Really?

Now lets go to their salespeople and "compliance" director who happens to be a bar certified criminal attorney. Why does a warranty company need a criminal attorney? Check his name out on BBB. Then go to a attorney bar website. He goes on social media and if you expose them he is the guard dog. He should be titled the "protect my image" guy. Lets move on to the fact the people calling you to sell warranties. Pushy right? Well do you remember SDP, Magazine exchange, and Think Direct? Yes the same folks that sold millions unwanted magazines and got sued daily for decades? Well PMC uses their telemarketers to sell you car warranties. Let that sink in. The other warranties are the supreme, select, and driveline. Cost about $5500-$3500. Unless you own a benz or bmw you dont need them. Start a savings account for repairs would be better. Oh btw the "positive" BBB reviews and other reviews are solicited. They give customers 1-2 months of no payments or PMC reward dollars. In exchange they beg you to go to BBB and post a "positive" review. Dont be a sheep. Think and listen to them. You will see the scam.

Oh btw let me tell you what they tell their sales peeps to do. Ask you qurstions about your car to use against you to scare you. Its called hot buttons. They have daily coaching sessions. The coaches tell you "make them hurt" "use it against them" " throw it at them". If you call to cancel which many do they use it. The closers use it. You are nothing but a dweeb with a car about to catch on fire and PMC is your only hope. Do it for the kids. These guys tell you they sponser monthly lunches. Man you cant even get seconds and the portions are like army basic training chow hall servings. You better know someone who knows somebody to get that. As far as being voted tampa bays best workplace 2nd 1st 3rd or whatever that is paid for and solicited. Dont believe the hype. If you like ripping off people then protect my car with their 2 owner brothers who say they are us military vets, who knows, but they ask us to tell you that, is the place for you. Oh btw there is no veteran discount or senior citizen discount. Everybody pays the same in the final analysis. Remember clearwater florida is the telemarketing scam capital.
