Acura Care Enhancements


Enhanced Component Coverage

For many years, replacing a light bulb in a car was considered routine maintenance by most automobile manufacturers. After all, most bulbs would only cost a dollar or two and little or no labor would be charged during a replacement. It would have cost more to administer the claim then the dealer would receive for reimbursement. However, Acura Care has always covered the cost of bulb replacement in the dash. While it would still only cost a dollar or two for the bulb, the time spent could result in a labor charge that could be considered unreasonable by a person who had a Acura Care Service Contract.

Advancements in lighting technology has given rise to the use of the more modern LED and LCD bulbs. These are much more efficient, brighter and last longer than the older bulbs, but they cost a lot more. In many cases, a bulb replacement has gone from a one digit expense to a three digit expense.
