What is a Vehicle Service Contract [VSC]?

A Vehicle Service Contract or a "VSC" provides breakdown repair coverage for a vehicle after the manufacturer's warranty coverage expires. A Vehicle Service Contract is an agreement between a vehicle owner and a VSC provider/administrator that states components/parts that will be covered in case of a mechanical breakdown and components/parts that will not be covered. A Vehicle Service Contract is often incorrectly referred to as an "Extended Warranty."
