The Acura MDX is the brand’s luxury crossover vehicle. It first went to market in 2000 under the Acura name. For a short stint from 2003-2006, it was delivered under the Honda brand name, but currently is listed as an Acura car model. It comes with third-row seating and seats seven passengers. And, as of 2014, overall U.S. units sold for the MDX was expected to exceed 700,000. It continuously hovers the line of being named the best-selling luxury crossover in the market and coming in second place.
The MDX has evolved over time to meet the technology and upgraded requirements drivers are more accustomed to from model year to model year. Features of upgraded models include push-button start, LED headlights, heated power seats, a power liftgate, and several other options to give drivers more with their driving experience.
The Acura manufacturer warranty is a basic 4-year/50,000-mile warranty, which rivals the basic warranties of other brands that are valid for 3 years or 36,000 miles. The powertrain option through Acura is valid for 6 years or 70,000 miles and provides a different kind of coverage. However, regardless of the type of manufacturer policy you have, it most likely will expire before you are ready for a new car. Fortunately, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be paying out of pocket for future vehicle repair expenses.
A vehicle service contract (VSC) can help secure peace of mind so you don’t have to face the chance of lapsed coverage. Being without coverage could mean several hundreds of dollars you’re responsible for at one time, which can cause quite the financial strain. With a VSC, you can budget monthly for the inevitability of vehicle repairs.
Policies also include benefits that cover expenses associated with breakdowns, such as towing services, rental car fees, and roadside assistance. This all can pose an inconvenience and quickly add up, if you don’t have proper coverage in place. A VSC offers coverage for the repair or replacement of many main vehicle components, such as the transmission, engine, or starter.

A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty,” but it is not a warranty. A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not.
