LAKEWOOD, Colo. — Warranty Solutions, a provider of vehicle service contracts for new and pre-owned vehicles and a part of the Wachovia Dealer Services family, introduced EcoMind, a coverage option designed to protect consumers and the environment.

EcoMind provides additional mechanical breakdown coverage for the parts that help vehicles run more efficiently, burn fuel more cleanly, and reduce overall emission output.

The cost of this additional coverage is $75 and covers the following components: vapor emissions canisters, distributor cap, catalytic converter, muffler, exhaust pipes, pcv valve, smog pump, spark plug wires, ignition coil boot and connectors. A moderate failure of any one of these components could cost significantly more than cost of the EcoMind option.

EcoMind is available at participating dealers nationwide. With each EcoMind purchase, Warranty Solutions will make a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation, a nonprofit conservation organization. Each donation equates to the planting of 25 trees.
