Consumers have been long-time fans of the Toyota Camry, and with good reason. It’s often touted for its dependability and handling on the road. Although its styling and design don’t usually top the list of standout points, recent rumors within the automotive space say that loyal fans are in for a change with the 2018 Camry model.
The teaser image showcased larger wheels, a trunk-mounted spoiler, and LED taillights for starters, none of the features currently indicative of a Toyota Camry model. With continued advancements and technology upgrades, it’s likely the Camry’s popularity will continue to rise.
Toyota Camry car buyers can rely on the model’s 3-year/36,000 basic warranty for their coverage needs. With the powertrain warranty, drivers receive coverage for 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, major repairs don’t often occur until this original warranty is expired. It doesn’t mean drivers should automatically be expected to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars, if their vehicle ends up in the shop. There is an alternative.
A vehicle service contract can help prevent extraneous costs in the future. When your original warranty coverage has expired, this type of plan can ensure most major repairs, plus labor costs, are covered. This is welcome news to those who want to budget their monthly automotive costs and prepare for any unexpected repair surprises in the future.
A water pump or alternator can range close to $1,000* each to replace. This doesn’t include the cost that might be necessary due to calling a tow truck or renting a car temporarily because of a vehicle breakdown. These kinds of costs are covered under certain vehicle service contracts and can help make the situation much easier.
The make, model, mileage, and year of your vehicle all factor into the kind of plan you are eligible for.

Because repairs are inevitable as your vehicle ages. Wouldn’t it be nice to be prepared and covered ahead of time?

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.
