Default GMEPP and Dennis Fichtner

I bought an extended "warranty" from Dennis at Menholt Chevrolet in Montana, got it today 6/6/17.
This was the absolute best customer service I have ever received from anyone anywhere. Dennis did far more than was necessary in order to be sure that I got my plan and that it was exactly what I wanted, at the best price too.
If any are wondering about where to buy their extended plan this is the place. By the way I have a 2015 stingray with 35,975 miles on it so I was cutting it close, Dennis got me covered with out a problem.
This is the guy to go to make no mistake about it...he will get it done for you: thumbs:

Agreed! I just bought another GMEPP from Dennis and am 100% satisfied -- excellent service and I give him my very highest recommendation to anyone looking to buy a TRUE GM warranty and not one of those risky 3rd party warranties.

Same here, I've purchased 2 plans from the Fichtners 10 years apart. They are the best in the business.

......unfortunately, we Corvette owners who reside in Florida (due to Fl regulations ) cannot take advantage of this purchase.

Apparently that is no longer the case with the GMEPP. Check with Dennis to be sure, but his e-mail response to me looked like those of us in FL are good to go. It was GMPP that could not, and still can't, be sold by anyone but FL dealers. GMPP is now Ally Premirer. Smells like a 3rd party to me.

Dennis is great to deal with - I bought an extended warranty from him when I had my '00 and it was a problem-free experience.

Yes, you can, unless something's changed in the last couple of months.

The old GMPP (Ally) could not be sold by the Fichtners in about a dozen states including FL, but according to them, the current GMEPP can be sold by them in all 50 states.

Call them, their sales ads have always stated GMEPP could be sold to customers in all 50 states.

I had the GMPP through Mr. Fichtner on my C6, now have the GMEPP through him for my C7. Great service & pricing. No need for anyone to go anywhere else.

I'm curious as to how many needed the extended warranty for work on C7 Corvettes. They seem to be quite bulletproof, and from what I've read display most problems during the initial warranty period. Mine was two years old in Feb., has 11k+ miles on it, and has been flawless.

Default Thanks

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone, this post is very much appreciated and I guess I am doing my job correctly!!


As to VNAMVET, I sent you an email but you can buy the GMEPP or now called the Chevrolet Protection Plan from me in Florida, it is the old GMPP and now the Ally Premier warranty that I couldn't sell in Florida.


Again Thanks Everyone!!!!

Best of luck with the new Vette. I have had mine over 2 years and it has been flawless. Hope yours is too.

Dennis is the Man. Bought a number of GMPPs from him over the past 10 years.

Are Ken and Dennis Fichtner the same outfit? If not, is one better than the other, etc.?

Yes, they are. I believe Dennis is Ken's uncle. Dennis primarily handles GMEPP sales and administration, and Ken works at the same dealership.

I am Ken's Uncle and do the warranty plans, Ken is now a Inventory Manager for the dealership which happens to be the largest in the region. We stock over 700 new Chevrolets and usually have about 300-400 used at all times also.

How much is one of these GMEPPs? And how long does it last?
