AcuraThe Acura brand was launched in 1986 as the luxury vehicle division for Honda, implementing several model redesigns over the past few decades. It continually increases its U.S. sales year-over-the year reaching $177,165 in 2015, which was over a 5 percent increase of the year prior.Acura warranties include a standard 4-year/50,000-mile limited warranty and a 6-year/70,000-mile limited powertrain warranty. Both have exclusions and limitations, which makes it important to understand the contingencies of any contract before signing. Even if you’ve barely had the chance to enjoy your new car smell, it’s still a good idea to plan for future repair coverage for your vehicle.Many times a manufacturer warranty expires before we even realize it. Then, we’re left paying out-of-pocket for repairs. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a coverage plan in place to make sure you are budgeted for these unforeseen circumstances? A vehicle service contract (f/k/a an extended warranty) allows you to breathe a little easier when your vehicle requires repair and your original warranty has expired. US Car Protection provides drivers coverage options for their vehicles based on their make, model, mileage, and year.
Average Repair Costs for Acura Vehicles
Vehicle repairs manage to cost more than we ever anticipate. Brakes, for instance, can easily set us back a couple hundred dollars, as per the information listed in the chart below. This shows a sampling of the most common type of repairs necessary for Acura and what you can expect to pay, on average, for each. Also, over the years, more than one part tends to need replacement at once, which can cause quite a financial strain.
Among the benefits of our vehicle service contracts, we provide towing services, rental car reimbursements, and will pay the repair facility directly, so you don’t have to worry about coordinating payment or paperwork. Rather than having to go through the hassle alone, you will have an appointed administrator to take care of it all.
|Alternator replacement||$292 to $1,480|
|Starter replacement||$244 to $1,976|
|AC compressor replacement||$640 to $1,471|
