High-Cost-Of-Repairs

National Auto Division Vehicle Service Contract

Cost of Repairs



Why is an Extended vehicle service agreement necessary? How much do typical repairs cost?



Our 25 years of experience and historical data show that vehicles will require 5-6 repairs between the expiration of the factory vehicle service agreement and 125,000 miles on the odometer.


The facts are that vehicle repairs (both parts and labor) keep rising dramatically. Labor Rates in many markets are rising at an alarming pace to top $100 per hour. According to recent surveys, consumers must keep their vehicle an average of 9 years due to rising replacement costs. Since most people cannot afford to be without transportation, necessary repair bills can amount to thousands of dollars over that many years of ownership.


Today's vehicles contain many electronic, computers, and high tech components that are complex in design that need replacement due to failure. As technology enhances the design of our vehicles, associated repair costs will raise dramatically.
