Mechanical Breakdown Insurance (MBI)
Next to your home, your vehicle is one of your most expensive investments, and if you're like most people, you keep your vehicle longer than the term of its manufacturer's bumper-to-bumper warranty. Mechanical Breakdown Insurance (MBI) is designed to protect you from high repair costs if your vehicle should have a covered mechanical breakdown.
What is Mechanical Breakdown Insurance?
A mechanical breakdown insurance policy (MBI) is a true insurance product. Like personal auto or homeowner's insurance, the MBI creates a direct relationship between the vehicle owner and the insurance company. The MBI product coverages and premiums are regulated by California's Department of Insurance, assuring a fair price for the coverage provided. Likewise, administrative underwriting and claim handling functions are subject to the review and control of California's Department of Insurance. This type of product regulation provides a higher level of consumer protection over other types of contracts including those that may be issued at the dealership, which are not generally regulated.
