With Mechanical Breakdown Protection, we have you covered.

MBP, powered by Route 66, covers repairs to your vehicle’s major systems, such as its engine or transmission, all from an Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)-certified shop. While it’s similar to a manufacturer’s extended warranty, it may be available on more vehicles and provide additional coverage for more systems. This type of protection can be purchased on top of a manufacturer’s extended warranty or in place of the extended warranty, if the vehicle is not covered.1

MBP Coverage Includes:

  • Engine
  • Drive axle assembly
  • Automatic and standard transmission
  • Brakes
  • Seals and gaskets
  • Fuel delivery
  • Exhaust
  • Power system
  • Steering
  • Some plans include air conditioning and electronics

MBP Coverage Excludes:

  • Tires, wheels, struts
  • Brake shoes or pads, rotors, drums, belts, hoses
