The Acura TLX is a luxury mid-size sedan manufactured under the Honda brand name and has been in production since 2014. Sales have fluctuated over the three model years the TLX has been available in the U.S. It saw a surge with the 2015 model year, reaching over 47,000 units, but dipped in 2016 to a little over 37,000 units sold.
However, when compared to others in its class, drivers are drawn to the low base model price, as well as the design of its interior. Like others under the Acura/Honda brand name, safety scores the highest of marks. The 2015 TLX received 5 stars across the board from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for its safety features. It also earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+ award from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Limited coverage under the basic Acura manufacturer warranty is valid for 4 years or 50,000 miles. The powertrain policy provides coverage for 6 years or 70,000 miles. These warranties surpass the “norm” of other basic warranties in the industry, which typically provide limited coverage of 3 years or 36,000 miles.
What about when your Acura manufacturer warranty expires? Are there options? You don’t want to be left without coverage at all, especially as your vehicle gains more mileage and more years pass by. This is where a vehicle service contract (VSC) can be helpful. A VSC fills the gap so there is no lapse of vehicle repair coverage when your original warranty ends.
Since there’s never an ideal time to take your car into the shop, it’s a good idea to ensure you have repair protection in advance. A vehicle breakdown causes financial stress, inconvenience, and can mean you’re without your daily mode of transportation for a few days. A VSC can help alleviate these complications.
With a CarSure VSC, you have access to free towing, free roadside assistance, and rental car fee reimbursement. Once signed up with a policy, your claims manager will handle payment directly to the repair shop, helping to alleviate some of the paperwork and communication needed from you to get your vehicle fixed. Each policy can be customized per driver and covers repair or replacement of larger components of your vehicle such as the engine and transmission.
Find out what kind of policy you qualify for by requesting a free quote. Provide the make, model, year, and mileage of your vehicle, and you can learn what benefits are available to you, how much it would cost, and the value of the policy over the long-term.

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.
