olive: protecting the bits that keep your car moving!

olive in the news

avoid expensive car repairs

Cars were meant to enhance your freedom, not limit your choices. But recently, that freedom has become absurdly complex. Your new car can have up to 30,000 parts, all controlled by a brain more sophisticated than the system that put astronauts on the moon. These complex and expensive machines need coverage that keeps up with them.

If you bought a new car, your warranty would likely run out well before you are ready to let it go, and before your car payments end, leaving you with a big bill if something breaks down.

If you bought a used car, truck or SUV you probably have payments but no extended auto warranty at all. Extended auto warranties for used cars have become more critical as people keep their vehicles longer with longer payment terms.

olive is here to help

Preventing a breakdown from becoming a meltdown. olive coverage protects every single lubricated part of your engine and transmission, electrical components, AC systems, even your instrument cluster. At a fraction of the cost of a significant repair, olive’s bite-sized payment increments help get you out of the shop and back on the road. We’re on a mission to give peace of mind back to vehicle ownership, one driver at a time.

Best of all, our mechanical breakdown insurance (“MBI” for California residents) or vehicle service contracts (“VSC”for the rest of the US) have no yearly mileage restrictions up to 185,000 Miles. So whether you signup with 36,000 miles or up to 140,000 miles on your vehicle, you are covered all the way up to 185,000 no matter how many miles you drive in a year. This means you will have at least 45,000 miles to drive to work or across the US and Canada. No one else in the industry matches that.

why choose olive to cover your car against high maintenance costs?

  • No waiting period-quote today and get covered tomorrow.
  • Start coverage with up to 140,000 miles on your ride.
  • No yearly mileage limits-we cover you up to 185,000 miles no matter how quickly you get there.

I found this company and was thrilled about the options and the no waiting period or mileage amount to meet since we are not driving anywhere due to the pandemic. However we went to an appointment a week or so later and the car didn’t feel right so I had it towed to the dealership. It was the power steering pump. They didn’t cover it because they requested a picture of the liquid in the pump and because it looked old, they didn’t cover it. Of course it’s old. All the parts are old; the car is old so that just let me know that they won’t cover anything so I canceled and went this a different company.

Great customer service by Barbara. This is something new to me and never heard of extended car warranty. I was referred by a friend due to the fact my warranty just ended on my car and having an older car its nice to have that coverage incase anything happen. This was the first place I called, Barbara was extremely helpful and answered all my questions. IJust sign up today. Hopefully I won't ever need it. But it's nice knowing theres some relief should anything happen. Thank you for all your help and making sure i was completely comfortable with what i was signing up for.

Thankfully I have no need for a claim but I the security of knowing something major will be covered if the need arises. Sign up was so easy. Scott was very responsive, patient, informative and friendly. I never once felt like I was being pressured or scammed by an over zealous sales rep. I even took a couple of weeks to think it over and research the company. Their website is very forthcoming and if you don't find you answer there, give them a call...they are willing to talk.

I recently signed up with Olive for Mechanical Breakdown Insurance in place of an extended warranty for my pre-owned vehicle. I spoke with Jerry Perales and he was very knowledgable about their offerings and was able to clearly articular their value proposition and benefits. He provided me with multiple options, which I can change at any time. I would highly recommend Olive as an alternative to an extended warranty. With Olive, there's no contract as the policy is month to month. I can cancel or change my options at any time without any penalties. If you do call Olive, definitely ask for Jerry Perales! He's an absolute pro!

At first I was a little reluctant to choose Olive because they were a new company, however after reading the reviews, and getting prompt responses via email regarding my concerns I decided to go with Olive. I am so ecstatic that I did because I had purchased a used 2013 Nissan Pathfinder in June and to my dismay it started to have mechanical issues, so I took it to the Nissan dealership in Modesto who found that the transmission needed to be replaced and and they contacted Olive, who within a couple of days after the diagnosis of the transmission came out and approved the work order. Thank you Olive!

Easy and seems like a great deal. Instead of paying thousands up front for something you may never use, why not pay much less month to month, and cancel anytime! Sounds like a no-brainer to me!

They were really pushing another company, and found Olive! My car was protected within 10 minutes! They sent me my coverage form documentation by email, paid my first month, and I am good to go! Ask me again, if something should happen to my car! That will be the real test! So far, so good!

Buyer's beware! I purchased a warranty from Olive, and when I filed a claim for transmission replacement, it got denied. I had it diagnosed by a local mechanic. They rejected it because they said it didn't have enough evidence, so I brought it to an actual Ford dealership, which I paid out of pocket to have it diagnosed and got denied again, saying it is not good enough. What a waste of time and money for a company that doesn't even stand by their warranty. I mean, what more do you want?!?! An actual Ford dealer even said I need a new transmission.

convenient. straightforward. comprehensive.

Every year the cost of vehicle repairs continues to climb as vehicle complexity increases. The average cost of a single repair ranges from $500 to $600 dollars. Sound steep? It is, and that can be a real hit to the piggy bank. On average, drivers 18-34 paid between $2,000 and $3,000 in vehicle maintenance and repairs over five years of vehicle ownership, because their original car warranty ran out before the life of their car. And that’s just the average. Many car owners paid more!

olive is a better way to protect the investment and freedom you know as your car. We do this by providing affordable, accessible extended mechanical coverage for all vehicle types. Simply pick a plan that suits you, select a manageable deductible, and away you go.

olive’s VSCs and MBIs extend coverage for your car beyond the factory warranty. We have no yearly mileage restrictions up to 185,000 Miles. So whether you signup with 36,000 miles or up to 140,000 miles on your vehicle, you are covered all the way up to 185,000 no matter how many miles you drive in a year. This means you will have at least 45,000 miles to drive to work or across the US and Canada. No one else in the industry matches that.

Sleep soundly, dreaming of icy beverages and white sand, because olive your mechanical breakdown fears now have a solution.

go olive the places!

olive understands that your car, truck, or SUV is not just another purchase. It’s the second biggest financial decision you’ll make. With your vacation fund intact and coverage blanketing the continental United States, now might be a good time to head out on that road trip you’ve been planning. And if that “check engine light” decides to illuminate itself half-way through the Mojave desert, rest assured because you’re covered wherever you roam. We even cover the first $100 in towing costs for covered repairs.

yes, olive is transferrable.  

Why are cars with mechanical breakdown coverage more likely to command higher resale value than their uninsured counterparts? Having a mechanical breakdown coverage plan on your vehicle proves to buyers that your car, truck, or SUV has been well cared for. In most cases, purchasing a vehicle that has mechanical breakdown coverage means that the owner has already fixed those vehicle-specific problems that are common to that specific make and model.

Given a choice between two identical vehicles, one with mechanical breakdown coverage transferring with it, and the other without any sort of guarantee, a consumer’s clear choice is the vehicle that is covered. olive helps mitigate vehicle depreciation by adding resale value to your ride. olive is coverage when you need it, and, when you no longer need it, olive is coverage you can transfer when you sell your vehicle.

olive our coverage is backed

Extended car warranties are like a promise, only as good as the person making it.

Last year, over 40 million used cars and trucks were sold in the US alone. Many dealers try to include an extended car warranty for new and used cars sold, but are all extended car warranties the same? In a word: no. Extended car warranties are like a promise that is only as good as the person making it.

At olive, all of our products, customer service, and reputation for excellence have earned us an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and we’ve partnered with some of the insurance industry’s largest companies to back us. We’re in the business of helping you live life covered!

An olive plan is more than an extended vehicle warranty, it’s frictionless coverage backed by an insurance mainstay.

the actual cost of ownership

Vehicle complexity is higher than it has ever been, which also causes car repairs to be pricier than they’ve ever been. The average length of a car loan now sits at 68 months. Over those five years of ownership, the average cost for repairs/breakdowns is between $2,000 and $3,000. Many drivers are a breakdown away from taking a serious financial hit.

But it doesn’t have to be like that, olive’s plans act like an extended auto warranty for a new or used vehicle, paying for serious mechanical repairs as they come up. But, unlike an extended auto warranty, olive covers more parts than your average warranty. At olive, all of our products, customer service, and reputation for excellence have earned us an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and we’ve partnered with some of the insurance industry’s largest companies to back us. We’re in the business of helping you live life covered!

coverage for every driver type

new car owners

A new vehicle is a significant financial investment and one that can depreciate quickly. Taking care of your investment is vital for the retention of its value. olive helps keeps your vehicle in pristine condition without the stress of having to pay for large, out of pocket expenses or an overpriced extended car warranty from the dealer.

expired manufacturers’ warranty

There’s a reason your manufacturer’s warranty only covers bumper-to-bumper repairs for the first 3 years/36,000 miles. After this magical date, your vehicle is likely to require expensive repairs. olive goes way beyond your vehicle’s original warranty, letting you rack up the miles with confidence.

families

Between soccer practice, laundry, dinner, and impromptu water-balloon fights, we know that family life is a busy life.  olive is here to take the worry out of a mechanical breakdown, so you can keep on schedule and on budget. 

educated consumers

It’s smart to be leery of over-priced dealer extended vehicle warranties. olive plans cover the big expensive parts and all the little parts that connect them together. olive is affordable, direct from the underwriter, coverage 

olive the difference

Our olive Complete Care protection plan not only pays for the covered components, but it pays for the labor and the couplings, seals, gaskets, linkages, and control valves (just to name a few). Now that’s coverage superior to an extended auto warranty!

When you start adding up the cost of diagnostic time, parts, labor to install the parts, manufacturer installed accessories, fittings, gaskets, and couplings, the true cost of a repair becomes a bloated, nightmarish affair.

olive’s budget-friendly monthly fee makes a ton of financial sense. olive coverage acts like an extended car warranty, without the headache. Dig the details?  See full coverage information in terms and conditions.
