Exclusionary Coverage

This is the highest level of coverage available, just like when the vehicle is under its original manufacturer's coverage. This is called Exclusionary because rather than state the thousands of components which are covered, it simply states the handful of excluded components which are not covered. The only excluded items are generally wear-and-tear components and routine maintenance.

Comprehensive Coverage

This is the best option for vehicles that are still newer, but no longer qualify for Exclusionary coverage. These policies cover most of the same components as Exclusionary policies, but not as many "bells & whistles," so to speak. For example, Comprehensive still covers important components such as brakes and suspension, but may not include things such as a navigation or stereo system which an Exclusionary plan may cover.

Enhanced Powertrain Coverage

This coverage is generally for vehicles which are starting to become higher in age or mileage. This covers all the major mechanical items, as well as the A/C and electrical components.

Basic Powertrain Plus Coverage

This covers all the major mechanical items, as well as a few of the major A/C and electrical components.

Basic Powertrain Coverage

This is the most basic level of coverage, covering only major items, such as the engine and transmission. Basic Powertrain does not cover any electronic items.

Consider the Statistics:

  • The average consumer drives their vehicle about 20,000 miles per year.

  • A vehicle is the second largest investment in most households.

  • A major engine or transmission repair can cost between $2500 and $4000.

  • You are more likely to use your Vehicle Service Contract than other forms of protection.

  • You depend on your vehicle! Now you can depend on American Auto Shield to protect your vehicle investment and to get you the best possible prices for parts and repairs.

   

 

More than 1/3 of all vehicles experience one or more failures in a given year. In fact, the average vehicle service contract holder will make 4-5 claims over the life of their contract. Hourly labor rates currently average over $80 nationwide. With the complexity of today’s vehicles combined with today’s labor rates, one repair can often cost more than the Vehicle Service Contract itself. Additionally, the risk of component failure and associated repair costs increases with your vehicle’s age and mileage. Often owners put off needed repairs until they can afford the cost of the repair – often resulting in additional damage to the vehicle, additional repair costs, and unsafe driving conditions.

 

 

Disclaimer: National Repair Solutions offers Extended Motor Vehicle Service Contracts, or Vehicle Service Contracts.  *A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty”, but is not a warranty.  The VSC industry is moving away from this terminology to avoid confusion. A VSC provides repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not. National Repair Solutions is not an administrator of VSCs and does not sell warranties.*
