The 2014 Acura MDX Warranty Covers You Longer

February 1st, 2014 by

When you look for a new luxury crossover like the 2014 Acura MDX, warranty coverage may not be the very first thing on your mind, but we think it’s something you should certainly be thinking about.

At Chicagoland Acura Dealers, we know that you look to luxury vehicles like the MDX as more than just a new car; they are a new investment. And a longer warranty means a better protection of your investment. Vehicles like the 2014 BMW X5 try to compete with the MDX, but in many areas—including warranty coverage—they fall short.

Basic and Powertrain Warranty Coverage Matter

While many drivers have come to expect that once the basic warranty coverage is done, they are out of warranty, most automakers have extended powertrain coverage. Not only has engine design made it so that their powertrains are more dependable, but most automakers also know that these are some of the most expensive parts of a vehicle and are worth protecting for longer.

We say “most automakers” because the BMW X5 has the same terms for its basic warranty as its powertrain warranty—48 months or 50,000 miles. Acura’s MDX has a 48-month/50,000-mile basic warranty, but when it comes to the powertrain, Acura protects you for 72 months or 70,000 miles.

When you factor in that the Acura also has earned better ratings from ALG for its residual value—60% at 36 months and 40% at 60 months compared to the BMW’s 47% and 34% respectively—it seems clear to us where your money is better spent.
