The ABS light came on in our 2001 Toyota Highlander. Our mechanic found the tone ring on the rear axle missing.
It was unclear whether it had broken off, or corosion was to blame. They refused to cover the new axle, a $700 repair because there was corrosion in that area. The five star plan we had purchased cost $2400 for four years of coverage. We were close to three years into the plan and had never used it.
The only info we were given when we purchased the plan was a glossy brochure with covered parts listed which looked very comprehensive and listed drive axle. The exclusions portion of the brochure said nothin about corosion. However the fine print stated see your contract for specific exclusions and detail. The insurance company made a subjective call that was bogus.
They obviously reserve the right to refuse coverage of any part they has any corrosion on it.
We live in New England where any vehicle that has seen even one winter has corrosion acrioss many parts. Do not purchase this plan if you live in New England or any snnow and ice are, you will be taken
