Mechanical Repair Coverage

Does it seem like vehicle warranties never extend quite far enough?

How many times have you heard stories about appliances that never broke down, roofs that never leaked and cars that ran fine--until the warranty ran out?  A recent poll conducted shows that drivers intend to keep their vehicles for ten years or more.1; Most new car warranties last four years, so the chances of having to pay for repairs is greater than ever.

Car repairs aren’t getting cheaper, either. Major repairs like a transmission can cost $3,000 or more. And even small, but necessary repairs like a wiper motor can cost hundreds of dollars. When your vehicle’s manufacturer’s warranty has expired or if it doesn’t cover certain mechanical problems, you could be stuck with some unexpected expenses over and above your vehicle loan.  

That’s where adding MEMBER’S CHOICE®; Mechanical Repair Coverage to your loan can help. It can deflect some of the risk of costly repairs so you can afford to keep your vehicle running extra miles and extra years. With three different coverage levels and deductibles to choose from, there’s a plan to fit your family’s budget.

Whether you depend on your vehicle for work or getting your family to school and activities, you need transportation that’s safe and reliable. The older your vehicle, the more it takes to keep it in good working order. Not making small repairs can lead to even more expensive repairs. Ignoring other repairs can be dangerous.

MEMBER’S CHOICE®; Mechanical Repair Coverage can help cover the unexpected costs of parts and labor and help keep your family safe. If you’re planning to keep your vehicle beyond the manufacturer’s warranty, it could be the right way to go.
