EasyCare® Extended Warranty Plan Benefits
EasyCare knows that there are both hidden repair costs and security concerns when cars need repairs. That’s why each EasyCare extended warranty plan comes with important benefits designed to protect car owners and their wallets.
All warranty plans include Roadside Assistance, Towing, and Rental Car Reimbursement. TotalCare® and StatedCareTM also include Trip Interruption and Wheel & Tire Protection
These driver benefits, and the extended warranty, are transferable to the new vehicle owner, when you sell your car. Of course, you can also easily renew your EasyCare plan. EasyCare offers a wide variety of coverage and benefits. Please see your contract for details of your coverage.
With EasyCare®, you don’t have to worry about being stuck on the side of the road alone. Each EasyCare extended warranty comes with 24/7 Roadside Assistance, covering the following:
- 24-Hour Toll-Free Emergency Dispatch
- Emergency Towing (even if needed as a result of a non-covered repair)
- Battery Jump-Start
- Fuel Delivery

- Lockout Service
Roadside Assistance services are effective for the entire length of your EasyCare vehicle service contract. They are provided by Vehicle Administrative Services (VAS). If you need Roadside Assistance, please call: (800) 538-4181, option 1.
For a covered repair, you will receive towing reimbursement of up to $65 per occurrence. If you choose to tow the car to the selling dealer, you will be reimbursed reasonable towing charges up to $100 per occurrence.
Rental Car Reimbursement
For a covered repair, you will receive rental car reimbursement of up to $30 per day, for up to 6 days. Upgrade Option: Up to $50 per day for up to 6 days (surcharge required). All EasyCare extended warranties include rental car reimbursement.
Trip Interruption Coverage
If you are at least 50 miles from home, and your car is disabled from a breakdown of a covered part or a covered mechanical failure, you will receive reimbursement for food and lodging, up to $100 per day for up to 3 days. (Only on TotalCare® and StatedCare™).
Tire & Wheel Coverage
With EasyCare® contracts offering tire and wheel protection*, you will be reimbursed for the replacement of tires and wheels damaged by glass, metal punctures and other road hazards. Your tires must have at least 3/32" of tread depth at time of blow out or flat for coverage. (Wheel & Tire Protection is included with TotalCare® and StatedCare™).
Other Ownership Advantages
The chances are great that you will have unexpected and expensive repairs to your car before you finish paying for it. In fact, the average term for a car loan is nearly 6 years, while the typical factory warranty provides full coverage for only 3 years or 36,000 miles. And, if you buy a used vehicle you may not have any warranty at all.
Although some manufacturers provide additional powertrain coverage to supplement their original factory warranty, but this is carefully limited coverage that only covers "driveline" items specifically identified in the fine print.
The right Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) can cover you in the following important areas:
Cover Repair Related Costs
Many repair related expenses are not covered by new car factory warranties. Things such as rental car reimbursement (assuring use of a vehicle while factory warranty repairs your vehicle), reimbursement for hotels, meals, and emergency phone calls if a repair is required while away from home, replacement of tires (and, wheels when necessary) damaged due to road hazard, towing, etc. Enhanced coverage that “wraps” the factory powertrain warranty to provide more comprehensive coverage that is closer to the full factory warranty. And, if you already have an extended factory powertrain warranty you can get an even better deal upgrading to more comprehensive EasyCare® coverage.
Protection After The Warranty Expires
EasyCare Protects You After The Factory Warranty Expires. EasyCare VSC's cover up to 95% of the things covered by a new car warranty, depending on the coverage you select. The few things that are not covered - such as squeaks, rattles, wind noise, water leaks and normal wear out items - are only covered by factory warranties for the first twelve months. With an EasyCare VSC, you don't have to come up with the full cost of the repair. Instead your exposure is limited to the amount of your deductible.
Assure The Highest Possible Resale Value for Your Vehicle
There are four things that determine the resale value of your vehicle; age, mileage, equipment, and condition. Of all these factors, the mechanical condition of the vehicle is something you can control and maintain. With an EasyCare VSC you limit the cost of repairs to your deductible, which means when something happens you can get your vehicle repaired properly and promptly. If you sell your vehicle you can even transfer the unused portion of any EasyCare VSC to the new owner, adding value and assuring you can get a better price.
Let's face it, for most people their car is the second largest purchase they make. In many cases, it's also the second largest monthly bill. With EasyCare you can keep your vehicle properly serviced. An EasyCare VSC, covers unexpected repair costs whenever they arise.
