ABA Seguros Auto Extended/Optional Endorsement
When shown as covered on the face sheet of the policy, and upon payment of the corresponding premium, this endorsement modifies coverage and limits as follows:
Increased Limits for Civil Liability for Property Damage and for Bodily Injury to Third Parties
The Combined Single Limit for Property Damage Liability/Bodily Injury Liability limit is increased to US $500,000.
Increased Medical Expenses for Occupants of the Insured Vehicle

Guaranteed Bond and Legal Assistance
The company legal representative will post bond or deposit the guarantee before the Agent of the Public Ministry Office and/or Penal Judge up to US $300,000 to obtain the provisional release of the Driver, and/or the release of the covered vehicle and to guarantee the repair of the damaged third party property.
Increased Cost of Repair
With prior agreement of the Company, the Insured may proceed to repair the vehicle outside Mexico. Instead of Mexican labor rates, the Company will require at least two estimates and will pay the actual labor costs incurred in the USA or Canada, not to exceed $100 per hour for any type of vehicle (only if covered for collision and upon payment of the corresponding premium). Vehicles will be considered a total loss at the option of the Company.
Deductibles for collision and total theft are fixed at US $500 and US $1000 respectively. The deductible for ATV's and UTV's is $2000 USD while self-propelled and/or decoupled from the towing unit.
Theft of parts and accessories that are permanently attached to the insured vehicle, excluding video and sound reproducing equipment, personal property, or objects contained in the vehicle. This coverage is subject to the fixed deductible of US $500 for theft.
Intentional and malicious damage to or destruction of the insured vehicle. This coverage is subject to a fixed deductible of US $500.
Deductible Waiver in Accidents with Third Parties at Fault
If the insured is involved in an accident in which an uninsured third party is at fault, as determined by the corresponding Mexican legal authorities, and damage is sustained to the insured vehicle, the company will pay for damages to the insured vehicle and waive the corresponding deductible.
The Insured, however, must fully cooperate with the Company in order to retain the corresponding right of recovery against the third party responsible for the accident.
In case of total theft or loss of the insured vehicle with a loan or lease on the vehicle, the company will pay the unpaid net balance of the loan or lease, even if the Actual Cash Value of the vehicle is less than the loan or lease amount. In no event shall The Company’s liability under this clause exceed the Actual Cash Value of the vehicle multiplied by 1.15. This coverage applies ONLY when the insured amount of the vehicle as listed on the declarations page is equal to or greater than the Actual Cash Value of the vehicle
