If your Acura RL is a 2009 or newer and has fewer than 50,000 miles it qualifies for Acura Care. Acura Care is the only extended service contract for an Acura RL backed by and endorsed by American Honda, the people that built your car. Acura Care for your Acura RL is honored at every single Acura dealer in the United States. You can even use it in Canada.
All Acura dealers are contractually obligated with Honda to honor Acura Care regardless of where you purchased it. Claims are paid to the dealer directly by American Honda much like regular warranty claims. If you have a zero deductible plan, all you'll need to do is to sign the repair order for covered repairs. It couldn't be easier.
There is no better coverage sold anywhere, at any price, for your Acura RL. Acura Care's exclusionary coverage is so extensive that it will cover you whether you have a problem with your door handle or you simply lock your keys in your car. Honda authorized navigation systems, DVD players, XM radios and security systems are all covered. Acura Care even goes beyond the standard factory warranty for your RL; you'll also get Roadside Assistance and rental car coverage which starts on the day you purchase the plan.
You can purchase Acura care for your Acura RL at any time within the original full factory warranty. However, the best time to buy is when your RL is still new and has fewer than 6,000 miles. This is when the longest plans at the best prices are available. At this point, your RL could be covered as long as 8 years or 120,000 miles. Acura Care for new vehicles starts from the original purchase date of your vehicle with zero miles.
Acura Care coverage for an Acura RL with over 6,000 miles is considered a near new vehicle plan. There is absolutely no difference in covered componants between new Acura RL and near new Acura RL plans. The difference is that the time for near new plans start on the day that you buy the plan and plan mileage ends at the stated mileage of the plan.
It may be difficult to predict how long you'll keep your RL, but with Acura Care you have options. If you decide to sell your RL while it is still covered, you can transfer the coverage to the new owner. After all, a used car with factory-backed coverage will command top dollar on the used car market. On the other hand, if you trade your RL for a new one or it's totaled, stolen or you just need the money, you can cancel Acura Care and receive a prorated refund for the unused portion.
Acura Care VSCs can cover repairs for virtually every component of your Acura RL even after the original factory warranty has expired. If anything should go wrong in the vehicle's drivetrain, the navigation system, even the stereo, Acura Care can cover the repair, potentially saving you thousands of dollars. That is the peace of mind you can have knowing you are covered for the unexpected.
