Fidelity Automotive Solutions Receives Certification from the Vehicle Protection Association

A thorough review regarding industry standards of conduct and an evaluation of compliance with federal and state laws confirms that certified companies are protecting consumers and honestly representing services provided.

Selbyville, DE, October 8, 2010 – The Vehicle Protection Association (VPA), an association formed to promote regulatory transparency, education and accountability for marketing and servicing automotive service contracts, announced today that Fidelity Automotive Solutions successfully completed the Certification-Audit Program.

Fidelity Automotive Solutions obtained certification after going through a thorough evaluation, including an on-site audit, to ensure they are in compliance with federal and state laws and that they are upholding the Standards of Conduct established by the Vehicle Protection Association.

"By achieving certification, Fidelity Automotive Solutions has demonstrated that they are committed to protecting consumers and providing the most fair and honest service possible," said Larry Hecker, executive director of VPA. “Customers can rest easy with the knowledge that the company is adhering to our association standards of conduct and is honestly representing services provided."

"Our goal is, and always has been, to provide our customers with the finest possible service and to protect them from the high cost of auto repairs," said Johnny Jirau, Chief Compliance Officer of Fidelity Automotive Solutions. "VPA certification confirms our strong commitment to our customer, letting them know that that we continue to be a leader in the industry and that we are always looking out for their best interests. "

As part of the Certification-Audit Program, companies must submit to a third-party for review. In addition to an on-site audit, companies also complete a self evaluation. If they pass through all of the rigorous evaluations, they can display the Vehicle Protection Association Certification logo on their marketing materials as a sign to consumers that they are a good company to work with.
