My husband and I bought new cars. We were suggested by USAA policy to buy the New Car Replacement Value insurance for our new expensive cars.
We were told by numerous USAA reps that the ncr will be the value of the car - depreciation plus 25%. So after many questions this made sense to us. Unfortunately my husband was severely injured and his brand new car was totaled. So we weren’t concern because the lady hit my husband not me Nd we had the ncr.
Well no- the calculation is actually value if car - depreciation- repair costs + 25%. So the 80k that we thought we were getting turned out to be 22k. Usaa claims it’s all in writing in the packet they send out. But the problem is when you say and explain on the phone something else I feel that is a horrible tactic..
especially for military personnel who expect honesty and don’t have time to double read their oacket to make sure their agents are telling the truth. By the eY I got my mom sister and I called 6 different times in the last month and we were given the same atory over the phone about what is covered and the calculation of ncr.
It never mentioned the repair costs. Usaa very dissapoinyed.
