Mechanical Breakdown Protection

  • Mechanical Breakdown Protection through Holyoke Credit Union
  • Easy Street, Main Street, or First Street Coverage
  • How to obtain Mechanical Breakdown Protection

Mechanical Breakdown Protection – often referred to as MBP – is a wise choice for many of our members, but may not be for everyone. The information presented here can help you decide if Mechanical Breakdown Protection is right for you.

First, consider the fact that most major repairs occur after the manufacturer's warranty expires and, if you are like most Holyoke Credit Union members, you are keeping your cars longer, while repair costs continue to rise. In order to avoid out-of-pocket costs for these repairs, some sort of extended coverage is a necessity!

The big question is how long you anticipate owning your car. If the car you've just purchased is new, take a close look at its factory warranty before making a decision on more coverage. If you plan on keeping the car for a long time, or if you will be putting a lot of miles on your car after the factory warranty expires, Mechanical Breakdown Protection may be a good investment.


Mechanical Breakdown Protection through Holyoke Credit Union

If you will be keeping your car for quite a few years, Mechanical Breakdown Protection is a good idea . . . and a good deal. Holyoke Credit Union offers Mechanical Breakdown Protection to its members and provides fairly-priced polices for both new and used cars. This cost is about half what a dealer would charge you for a typical extended warranty. Another benefit is that Mechanical Breakdown Protection usually allows you to take your car to your repair shop, where dealer warranties limit work to specific dealerships.

Available only to our members, Holyoke Credit Union Mechanical Breakdown Protection offers the following:

  • You can purchase coverage for both new and used vehicles
  • Competitive pricing compared to plans offered by many auto dealers
  • All MBI plans also include 24-hour emergency roadside service and rental car allowance
  • Easy Street, Main Street and First Street* Qualification based on year, make, model and mileage of vehicle
  • Nationwide protection
  • Comprehensive coverage designed to keep your vehicle on the road
  • No deductible on covered parts and labor
  • 30-day "Free Look" allows you to cancel for any reason within the first 30 days and receive a full refund less any claims paid


Easy Street, Main Street, or First Street Coverage*

Be ready for the unexpected and ensure you're covered in the event a mechanical breakdown occurs. With Mechanical Breakdown Protection from Route 66 Warranty, you can rest easy knowing you are covered. Route 66 Warranty's Mechanical Breakdown Protection Plans are available for both new and pre-owned vehicles, and coverage is transferable if you sell your vehicle before your agreement expires providing added resale value.
