Honda’s compact SUV or HR-V is considered the “younger brother” of the CR-V crossover SUV. It combines the favored characteristics of the CR-V with the smaller Fit hatchback to create a new model that appeals to drivers looking for good fuel economy, roomy interior, and agile maneuverability.
Consumers appreciate its flexible interior, which has flat-folding seatbacks and rear-seat cushions that flip up to make room for taller items standing upright on the floor. It scored highest by Kelley Blue Book in driving dynamics and comfort and convenience, as well as receiving an overall rating of 9.5.
A Honda HR-V warranty provides coverage for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first, for its limited warranty and 5 years or 60,000 miles for its powertrain limited warranty. A warranty comes standard with the purchase of a new Honda, but what happens when that expires?
To avoid lapse in coverage, consider the benefits of a vehicle service contract. This is separate protection put in place to continue vehicle repair coverage after your original manufacturer warranty is no longer valid. If vehicle repair or part replacement is required after the 3 or 5 years of the initial warranty is up, you most likely will not want to pay for repairs out of pocket.
A trip to the repair shop can set you back financially hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars without a vehicle service contract in place. With increased age and mileage of a vehicle comes the increased chance of necessary repair. When this happens, a driver may also face costs to rent a car, tow the vehicle, and other expenses and stresses associated with the inconvenience of being without a vehicle.
Coverage from a vehicle service contract helps protect you against unexpected costs at inopportune times. It’s if your vehicle will need repair, it’s when. There are options between plans based on your vehicle’s eligibility. The make, model, year, and mileage all play an important part in deciding which plan will offer the most coverage at the best value. Explore your options and get the vehicle repair protection you need.
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.
