Every Acura owner drives off the lot with their luxury marquee backed by Honda’s industry-leading factory warranty, but though this warranty is thorough and Acuras are built a line above basic Hondas, every car breaks down eventually. Acuras are not excluded from this natural progression, but unfortunately, the break typically happens after Acura Extended Warranty has expired. This combined with the fact that Acura’s are more expensive to fix than the average Honda makes for a costly repair.
This is why Acura has created vehicle service contracts – or an extended warranty – for Honda Acura vehicles. Since Acuras typically reach a higher mileage and last longer than other Hondas, Acura’s extended warranty, Endurance, is something that all Acura owners should highly consider.
How does Endurance work?
If you purchase the Endurance warranty, that means that the doors of any Honda or Acura dealership are open to you, nationwide. You can also take your vehicle to any Acura-approved dealership, but if you go somewhere other than what is allowed in the contract, you will lose your coverage. Endurance makes a way for both new and used vehicles to be cared for by certified mechanics.
What’s the difference between an extended warranty from a dealer and Endurance?
Our program is called “Elite” for a reason. The Endurance Elite Membership offers much more peace of mind than most other warranties you’ll come across. You have total protection, 24/7 roadside assistance, and up to $5,000 in repair loans that you can repay easily and simply through payment installments. We make it even easier to access your account and stay in the know through our Endurance Protect App.
How much does an Acura extended warranty cost?
All of Acura’s vehicles are guaranteed to last long and be highly reliable. The Acura RDX, for instance, is not only Acura’s best-selling new vehicle, but it is also one of the top resale vehicles in the market today. Compared to other luxury marquees, its mileage ratings are excellent.
However, it’s because of their longer lifespans that Acuras necessitate the Endurance Elite Membership. Many owners find that significant repairs occur long after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired, and since Acura is a premium brand, these repairs can make some serious damage to your bank account. For example, an alternator replacement can cost anywhere from $295 – $1,499, a water pump from $323 to $1,805, and a head gasket replacement from $362 to $1,631; these three repairs are the most common for Acura cars, no matter which model.
Acura’s are excellently made cars that last longer and work better than most others, but no matter how well a car is made, it can and will break down eventually. Acura is no exception, and more often than not, these breakdowns happen unexpectedly. It’s likely that the cost of an extended protection plan will be significantly less than these fixes without a plan in place.
What extended car warranty covers the most for the best price?
You’ll find four different Endurance coverage plans. The Supreme Plan covers everything while the Select Premiere exempts power items such as brakes, steering, and gaskets. We realize that each individual has different needs, so we’re happy to work with you to provide the best plan for your car and lifestyle.
What types of charges does Endurance exclude?
We go above and beyond in providing the best and most extensive coverage for all of our customers. You can find a thorough list of any of our exclusions when you check out each plan and their sample contracts.
