What is mechanical and electrical coverage?

Mechanical & Electrical Coverage ensures your car’s vital components, including the engine and electrical systems, are protected against malfunctions. This coverage acts as insurance for your vehicle’s essential parts, safeguarding you from hefty repair costs due to mechanical or electrical issues. Note: This doesn’t cover damages caused by accidents or misuse.

Many newer vehicles come with a warranty, which can cover mechanical and electrical repairs within a certain time frame (usually 3-5 years) or distance driven. However, depending on the warranty, you may find that some of the items that commonly wear out on cars aren’t covered. Purchasing an extended warranty is typically most affordable with a newer vehicle. Your warranty may require you to pay a deductible before the warranty begins paying out for repairs.

You may not need coverage if your vehicle is relatively new and still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, an additional warranty might be unnecessary. Additionally, if you’re skilled in DIY car repairs or have a trusted mechanic who offers affordable services, you might feel confident in handling potential issues without the need for an extended warranty to cover the cost.
