As of the 2017 model year, the Chevrolet Equinox, at 12-years-old, is relatively new to the Chevrolet family, when compared to other models. The crossover SUV is ideal for the driver who wants extra seat space and the look and feel of a SUV without committing to the Chevy Tahoe or other larger vehicle type.
The Equinox is available in four trim levels, each including its own special features and updated technology. The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox LT, for example, comes with heated mirrors, infotainment system which links with Chevy’s MyLink interface, smartphone integration and other components and features for drivers looking for an upgrade.
Under the Chevrolet warranty, drivers can choose from basic vehicle protection of 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first or limited powertrain protection of 5 years or 60,000 miles. As an added incentive for powertrain policyholders, drivers benefit from the manufacturer’s transportation program, which offers courtesy services like roadside assistance, flat tire repair assistance, dead battery assistance, and services for if you lock your keys out of your car.
While it’s important to have coverage in the first few years of vehicle ownership, it’s equally as important to maintain repair coverage as your Equinox ages. A vehicle service contract (VSC) prevents the lapse when your original warranty is no longer valid. It provides drivers an extra feeling of security since it covers many of the major components that tend to break down over the years, such as the engine, starter, transmission, or A/C unit. Policies are customized based on your basic car information and includes the parts and labor of the repair, as well as free towing or free roadside assistance, if needed.
Unexpected vehicle repairs are one of the most common things that can throw off a person’s monthly budget. When you add all associated repair costs together, the total can easily reach into hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. Many cannot afford to pay that out-of-pocket, but can’t afford to be without their vehicle either, causing a dilemma. Fortunately, a VSC can help on both fronts by providing an opportunity to have the repairs performed as soon as possible, while also being reimbursed for rental car fees.

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.
