The Volkswagen Beetle a.k.a. the Bug may be one of the most beloved cars of all time. The sporty, zippy car is a veteran in the automotive space. And, in 1972, it beat the car production world record previously held by the Ford Model T. It’s not just nostalgia that makes the Beetle popular among drivers. It’s the high safety ratings, nimbleness, and because it’s pure fun to drive.
Older Beetle models won’t come with the 6-year, 72,000-mile manufacturer warranty newer models have. The original, basic warranty, valid for 3 years or 36,000 miles, most likely is expired, if you own an older model. But that doesn’t mean you have to go without vehicle repair coverage. Whether or not your warranty has expired or is set to expire soon, you have options when you select a vehicle service contract (VSC).
A VSC provides repair coverage when your original warranty is no longer valid. There are specific plans for vehicles with higher mileage or for older vehicles that may need separate needs. Coverage includes major components of your vehicle, but there are different tiers to consider. Not sure which plan is best for you? A friendly representative can talk through options with you and answer any questions you may have about coverage.
This type of contract also helps you budget and plan for the time your vehicle is in need of a major repair. When this happens and you don’t have a warranty in place, it can be costly. Will you be prepared to pay potentially several hundred dollars to get your car up and running again? These expenses can easily cause a financial strain on anyone’s budget and can potentially be avoided with a VSC, which offers customized coverage.
Every CarSure contract also includes benefits, such as working with “A” rated administrators, the option to take your car to any ASC-Certified repair shop, and free towing services with 24/7 roadside assistance. Don’t face unexpected, out-of-pocket expenses by going without repair coverage. Let us know how we can help. You can receive a free quote by providing the year, make, and model of your car. From there, decide how a vehicle service contact can be of the most benefit to you.

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.
