AUTO SHIELD ROAD HAZARD WARRANTY
WHAT IS ROAD HAZARD DAMAGE:
Road Hazard damage is caused by unforeseen road conditions on a public road or highway, that should not exist there. This includes road debris, potholes, and nails. Road Hazard damage can result in the vehicle’s body panels, headlights, taillights, tires, wheels or windshield to be damaged.
Autoshield’s Road Hazard program helps cover your vehicle from road hazard damage.
The most common types of road hazards are potholes, screws, nails, glass or foreign road debris.
Road hazard damage can occur if a tire fails due to the following reasons:
Autoshield’s Road Hazard Protection Program covers the following types of damage. Usually, these damages are caused by road hazards such as nails, glass, and potholes.
Tire + Rim Repair
If your tires or rims are damaged due to a road hazard, you’re covered for unlimited repair and/or replacement claims.
If minor chips and cracks occur due to random road debris, you’re covered for repairs to only the front windshield.
Key + Remote Replacement
Replacing a lost, stolen, or damaged key is as annoying as it is expensive. Not anymore, you’re covered.
Dent, Scratch + Paint Repair
You’re covered for both door dings, scratches, and dents requiring paint repair on the body panels of the vehicle.
Headlight + Tail Light Replacement
If your headlights, taillights, or fog lights are damaged due to road hazards, you’re covered for the repair or replacement.
You’re covered for wheels damaged by accidental scrapes against medians, potholes, and even curbs.
Car Rental Reimbursement
In cases where your vehicle repair will take more than one day to fix, you’re covered for car rental reimbursement related to your claim.
Please refer to your Terms & Conditions for a full description of your coverages. Thank you!
WHAT IS NOT A ROAD HAZARD:
Defects from bad materials or workmanship
Current manufacturers’ warranties cover tires that become unusable for any reason within the tire manufacturer’s control, typically covering materials and workmanship. Some examples of this would be belt separation, tread separation and out-of-round.
This type of damage IS covered by the manufacturer’s warranty program, however, this damage is not considered a road hazard. Therefore, this damage is not covered by our road hazard protection program because it is within the manufacturer's control.
Damage caused by curbs is NOT covered by Road Hazard Warranty, as curbs are not a road hazard.
Damage that is not considered road hazard, include damage caused by fire, vandalism, theft, accident, off-road use, improper inflation or improper installation of tires. None of these are covered by Autoshield’s Road Hazard protection program.
For more information about what is and what is not covered by our road hazard protection program, please see the complete terms and conditions for the program. If you have further questions, please contact the program administrator by calling the toll-free number that is listed in the Terms & Conditions.
