The Mazda RX-8 had nearly a decade-long run as the manufacturer’s 4-door sports car. Though its fuel mileage wasn’t as promising as its competitors, drivers still appreciated its fun, sporty appeal. Meant for road trips along winding roads, the RX-8 most likely isn’t a first choice for a commuter vehicle even today.
Like others in the Mazda family of cars, the RX-8 is available with the basic warranty providing coverage for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. And, drivers can select an extended powertrain option good for 5 years or 60,000 miles. However, depending on if you bought your car new or used, your warranty may already be long expired or set to expire soon.
For older vehicles, the likelihood of a major vehicle repair increases, simply due to the added years and mileage on the car. If you are responsible for paying for repair costs on your own, it can cause a financial strain, since average costs can add up to several hundred dollars. Instead of dealing with unexpected, expensive costs, you have an option that could be more affordable to you in the long run.
A vehicle service contract provides coverage for vehicles that have warranties which are no longer valid. The plans cover major automotive parts, such as the engine, transmission, starter, and other necessary components that make a vehicle operable. Each policy offers different coverage, but there is a Comprehensive Protection plan that is geared more toward a vehicle with high mileage.
Additionally, these plans come with benefits to help alleviate stress and costs when your vehicle needs repair. Every vehicle service contract includes complimentary towing, roadside assistance, and rental car reimbursement. We are also known for our excellent customer service; our primary goal is to find a customized coverage plan that works best for your driving and vehicle needs.
Vehicle repairs are inevitable and typically happen at the most inopportune times. Wouldn’t it be nice to have the coverage you need at the time you need it? Consider the benefits of a vehicle service contract and receive your free quote today.

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.
