The Acura RDX has been the brand’s compact luxury crossover SUV since 2007. In accordance with Acura’s positive safety reputation, the RDX is the second from the brand to feature Advanced Compatibility Engineering, a design that helps better absorb collisions. It’s received a perfect rating from the U.S National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the 2017 RDX model ranks 3rd on U.S. News & World Report’s list for Luxury Compact SUVs.
The RDX remains a popular choice among drivers for its comfortable interior and smooth handling. And, the Acura brand overall is known best for its reliability among their vehicles, but faces stiff competition with the more advanced infotainment features offered with other brands. However, U.S. News & World Report also named the RDX a finalist for Best Luxury Compact SUV for the Money.
When it comes to warranty coverage, the crossover SUV comes standard with a limited policy that provides coverage for 4 years or 50,000 miles. Drivers may also opt for a powertrain, 6-year/70,000-mile limited warranty when looking for vehicle coverage. Regardless of which coverage drivers opt for, most likely they will have their SUV far beyond the manufacturer warranty expiration date and do not want to face paying out of pocket for repairs.
A vehicle service contract (VSC) can help prevent lapse in coverage. While the policy is separate from your original warranty, it can give you the coverage you may need for repairs down the road. Generally speaking, CarSure VSC plans cover main vehicle components like the engine or transmission, among several other parts. To see what you qualify for, you can submit your vehicle information and receive a free quote.
This vehicle repair coverage option also comes with several helpful benefits. This includes towing, reimbursement for rental cars, roadside assistance, and flexible plans. Rather than having to stress about the inevitability of vehicle repairs that can cost hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars, learn about options you have through a VSC.

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.
