Acura Care Keeps You Covered – Part by Part

Acura Care® VSCs can cover repairs for virtually every component of your vehicle, 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 may cover the repair, potentially saving you thousands of dollars and repairs are made with only Acura authorized replacement parts (the highest quality parts available). That is the peace of mind you can have knowing you are covered. Illustrated are commonly replaced engine components - and what you would pay out of pocket without Acura Care.
