I. AGREEMENT

The Declarations Page and Vehicle Service Plan Terms and Conditions make up the entire Agreement (the “Agreement”) between You and Us regarding the Coverage and related benefits for Your Vehicle. This Agreement begins on the Effective Date and ends on the Expiration Date or when the Expiration Mileage has been reached on the Vehicle Odometer, whichever occurs first.

II.DEFINITIONS

Throughout this Agreement, the words “You” and “Your” refer to the named Agreement holder as shown in the declarations page. This Agreement is between [QBE Administration Services, Inc.] (the Obligor) and You. The words “We“, “Us” and “Our” refers to the Obligor providing this Agreement. Other words and phrases that appear in bold face type have special meaning. They are defined as follows:

  1. Administrator means [QBE Administration Service, Inc.] You may contact the Administrator’s office at any time for coverage questions or receive assistance in filing a claim at [1-800-773-9980], [P.O. Box 372790, Denver, CO 80237-9714].
  2. Approved Vehicle means the vehicle identified by the VIN in the Declarations Page.
  3. Coverage means the Coverage You selected for the Approved Vehicle as fully described under Section COVERAGES.
  4. Covered Part: if you purchased the olive powertrain Coverage or the olive powertrain plus Coverage, Covered Parts are the parts installed at the time of the manufacturing of the Approved Vehicle that are specifically listed after each component group heading of the Coverage plan purchased. Any part not listed on the Coverage You purchased is not covered, regardless of the cause for its failure.If you purchased the olive complete care Coverage, all parts installed at the time of the manufacturing of the Approved Vehicle are covered, except for those parts and services found in Section VI. EXCLUSIONS of this Agreement. Repairs needed to a non-covered part caused by the Mechanical Breakdown of a Covered Part will also be covered under the olive complete care Coverage.
  1. Deductible: The amount shown in Item 3. of the Declaration Page for which You are responsible to pay to the repair facility in the event of a claim being covered by this Agreement. This does not include any non-covered repairs or expenses which You will be responsible for.
  2. Effective Date means the date on which Your Agreement will become effective, for the Coverage You have selected.
  3. Emergency Repair means a necessary repair to Your Approved Vehicle at a state licensed repair facility when the Administrator’s offices are closed.
  4. Expiration Date means the date shown on the Declarations Page that will cause this Agreement to expire, even if the Expiration Mileage has not been reached.

  6. Mechanical Breakdown means the failure of a Covered Part to perform its intended function due to defects in materials or faulty workmanship in its manufacturing. This does not include the normal reduction in operating performance of a Covered Part due to normal wear and tear, including parts in which wear tolerances that are outside the manufacturer’s specifications are exceeded that are not due to defect in material or faulty workmanship in the manufacturing of a Covered Part. (Please refer to Section EXCLUSIONS for other exclusion that may apply). Leaks of a Covered Part will only be considered a Mechanical Breakdown if it is an active leak to a drip. Seepage and/or buildup is considered normal and will not be covered.
  7. Retail Value of the Vehicle means the retail value of the Vehicle at the time of repair or service, as determined by NADA (https://www.nadaguides.com/Cars), taking into consideration the location, mileage and condition of the Approved Vehicle.

III. HOW TO MAKE A CLAIM

    1. If the Approved Vehicle is inoperable, and to prevent any further damage, immediately stop the vehicle and call for towing or roadside assistance. It is Your responsibility to use all reasonable means and precautions to protect the Approved Vehicle from further damage. Continued operation of the Approved Vehicle after any Mechanical Breakdown shall constitute failure to protect the Approved Vehicle. Any damage from failure to protect the Approved Vehicle shall not be recoverable.
    2. Prior to starting repairs, the repair facility must contact the Administrator’s claims office at [1- 800-773-9980] with diagnosis and estimate of repairs. If You experience an Emergency Repair when a covered Mechanical Breakdown occurs when the Administrator’s office is closed, You must have the repair facility contact the Administrator during the next business day. Failure to contact the Administrator and report the claim on the next business day may result in nonpayment (see Section VI. EXCLUSIONS).

IMPORTANT: You must call the Administrator prior to any engine or transmission disassembly. You are responsible for the cost of disassembly in the event the Mechanical Breakdown is NOT payable under this Agreement (see General Agreement Exclusions).
    4. If requested, permit inspection of the Approved Vehicle by the Administrator BEFORE repairs are performed.
    5. Upon request, provide proof of maintenance (see YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES).
    6. You must pay the Deductible and any other non-covered expenses as applicable.
