Yes, Mercury offers a type of extended warranty. The Mercury extended warranty program is called Mercury Mechanical Protection, and it covers the cost of repairs to the engine, transmission, drive axle, and brakes, among other things. The cost of Mercury's Mercury Mechanical Protection varies depending on the vehicle, but it averages about $800-$9,000 for a 3-7 year term, depending on make, model, year and mileage.
In general, extended warranties are meant to keep drivers from paying out of pocket for sudden repairs, since mechanical problems are not covered by other types of auto insurance.
Mercury Extended Warranties Cover:
- 24-hour Roadside Assistance
- Rental Vehicle Assistance
- Road Hazard Tire Protection
- Trip Interruption Coverage
- Electrical System
- Drive Axle
- A/C & Heating
- Fuel System
- Convenience Tech
Coverage details can vary depending on which Mercury plan you choose. Additionally, since Mercury Mechanical Protection is designed to supplement the original manufacturer's warranty, cars must meet certain requirements to qualify.
Mercury Mechanical Protection Eligibility Requirements
- Up to 14 years
- Mileage requirements vary depending on the plan
Coverage and eligibility details can vary by state. It's also worth noting that Mercury Mechanical Protection is technically a vehicle service plan, which provides the same coverage as an extended warranty. However, vehicle service plans are offered by car insurance companies, whereas extended warranties are generally sold by dealerships or third-party companies.
