Mechanical Repair Coverage (MRC)

Help keep your vehicle on the road longer and avoid costly repairs. Members Choice® Mechanical Repair Coverage2 can help deflect some risk of costly repairs keeping your vehicle running extra miles and extra years. With different coverage levels and deductibles to choose, there’s a plan to fit your family’s budget. 

You depend on your vehicle and need transportation that’s safe and reliable. The older your vehicle, the more it takes to keep it in good working order. Not making small repairs can lead to even more expensive repairs and ignoring other repairs can be dangerous.

  • 24-hour emergency roadside assistance: Up to $100 per occurrence. Includes towing, battery jump start, fluid delivery, flat tire assistance and lock-out service.
  • Travel expense reimbursement: Up to $200 for lodging, food and rental expense when a covered breakdown occurs more than 100 miles from home.
  • Transferable: If you sell your vehicle privately, the coverage can be transferred for a fee, adding resale value and appeal.
  • Cancelable: Receive a full refund within the first 60 days or a pro-rated refund thereafter less an administrative fee.
  • No out of pocket expense at time of mechanical repair: (except for any deductible and any repairs not covered by the policy)–the covered repair is paid directly to the authorized repair facility by the plan.
  • Ask about deductible options.
