If you’re in the market for an Acura extended warranty, we can help you find a plan that’s right for your driving habits and budget. Keeping your car protected for the long haul can be simple and painless with plans from third-party dealers like CARCHEX.

What Does a Basic Acura Warranty Cover?

If your Acura is just a few years old, you’re likely still under the manufacturer’s warranty. Here’s an overview of what one includes:

  • Four-year or 50,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty
  • Six-year or 70,000-mile powertrain limited warranty (includes hybrid powertrain)
  • Eight-year or 100,000-mile high voltage battery capacity warranty
  • Five-year or unlimited-mile rust perforation limited warranty
  • 15-year or 150,000-mile seat belt limited warranty
  • Federal and California emissions warranties

Note that when your Acura warranty expires, you’re responsible for covering the cost of all repairs on your own.

Is an Acura Extended Warranty Worth It?

Acura models get pretty solid ratings for reliability, with drivers typically seeing low repair costs compared to drivers of other cars. However, you’ll run into repair and replacement needs as any car ages. When your Acura needs attention, can you afford the cost?

Here are some common repairs reported by Acura owners:

  • Alternator replacement—$871 to $929
  • Water pump replacement—$684 to $808
  • Timing belt replacement—$866 to $1,007
  • Battery replacement—$221 to $232
  • Ignition coil replacement—$487 to $496
  • Oxygen sensor replacement—$303 to $318

When something goes wrong, it can be nice to have an Acura extended warranty in place to cover repair costs. The peace of mind that comes with having your car covered can make an extended warranty worth it, apart from the significant potential savings.

Can You Afford To Pay These Repair Costs?

If these numbers feel a little high to you, you’re not alone. That’s why an Acura extended warranty from a third-party company can help—this coverage can save you tons of stress and money over the long run.

How Much Does an Acura Extended Warranty Cost?

The price of an extended warranty from Acura depends on a few factors, including:


  • How much coverage you need
  • Your driving habits and needs
  • Your deductible
  • The make, model, and age of your car
  • Your warranty provider

Though more extensive plans cost extra, they offer a greater bang for your buck compared to slimmed-down versions. Acura extended warranty options from third-party providers like CARCHEX usually offer a greater value as well, along with plans that include a higher deductible.

Manufacturer’s Warranty vs. Third-Party Warranty

Perhaps the most important factor in determining the price of an Acura extended warranty is your provider. While you can buy an extended warranty from either your automotive dealer or a third-party company, here are some key differences.

If You Buy from a Dealer

Acura extended warranty choices from dealerships can be quite limiting. Most dealership warranties require you to take your vehicle to an authorized location for repairs and replacements to be covered. You’ll also likely be limited to using OEM Acura Parts for any repairs.

Many dealerships roll the cost of your warranty into your total car payment. While this makes your premium straightforward, it often means you’re paying interest on the price of your Acura extended warranty.

If You Buy from a Third-Party Company

Unlike auto dealers, the best third-party providers will have much more flexible terms of service, allowing you to pick the mechanic you trust most for your car repairs. You can also choose less expensive parts.

Buying from a third-party company means that you’ll be billed separately from your car payment, so you’re not paying interest on your Acura extended warranty.

Also, third-party providers tend to have more service contract options. That means your plan can be customized for your vehicle, so you won’t be paying extra for coverage you don’t need.
