Mechanical breakdown insurance commonly known as MBI is a form of coverage offered by insurance companies as an add-on service on top of your existing auto insurance policy. An MBI coverage means that as an extension of your car?s insurance policy you get coverage for unexpected repair bills caused due to untimely electrical and mechanical failures.

An extended warranty on the other hand is a form of coverage offered by the car?s manufacturer/dealership or a third-party vendor that acts as an extension to your standard warranty that you get when you purchase a vehicle. That means it covers critical vehicle components like powertrain, key electrical components, etc. The extent of parts covered and duration is generally determined by the type and cost of the extended warranty package and can also include perks such as roadside assistance and trip interruption coverage.
