GMC Acadia recently went through a complete redesign – giving this midsize and family friendly SUV a fuel efficient engine, high safety scores and seating for up to 7 people. While cargo space in the Acadia isn’t quite as large as other’s in its class, the lower based price, and more options for base models, make the GMC Acadia a great midsize SUV. GMC packed the Acadia base model with more included features than other comparable vehicles, such as a 7-inch touch screen GMC infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone integration.
The new Acadia performed very similarly to other comparable midsize SUV when looking at reliability. GMC backs its vehicles with a basic 3 year/36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty and a 5 year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty. The powertrain warranty will cover expensive repairs due to manufacture defects, like the engine, transmission, transfer case and more. The factory won’t cover repairs that occur due to misuse, accident or alterations. Your GMC dealer will have a complete breakdown over coverage features.
When your factory warranty expires, you’ll find yourself responsible for any, and all, repairs and breakdowns. Even with vehicle reliability being the best it’s been in years, breakdowns and repairs are an inevitable part of car ownership. Vehicle service contracts (or VSC) are designed to pick up right where your factory warranty leaves off. These VSC are separate from your manufacturer warranty, but they can provide the same type of repair coverage.
CarSure offers three base options of Vehicle Service contracts, each with various coverage options that are designed to match the needs of you and your vehicle. Based on the mileage and age of your Acadia, CarSure will have a plan and option that will fit within your budget. And while all plans are unique, each one comes with free roadside assistance and towing in case you do experience a covered repair breakdown.
The three various VSC plans offered by CarSure all cover major components such as your engine, transmission, starter and more. The newer vehicles, such as the Acadia, are becoming more reliable on computer technology – and this technology is just as likely to experience problems as other parts of your vehicle. That’s why CarSure offers plans that even cover the technical side of your Acadia. For complete details on coverage options, give us a call, or complete the form on this page.

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.
