olive extended car warranty bbb A rating

Fernando ReyHorrible service. I purchased my car from a large reputable dealer and decided to buy my own car warranty. Buying Olive was a mistake. My car broke down on the freeway, and was towed to mechanic. Olive gave grief to my mechanic and 3 months later, I still haven't been reimbursed for my towing and car rental (despite several calls and emails).Don't buy Olive, go with another reputable company

Obtaining MBI coverage in California can be challenging. The most advertised company doesn't offer coverage in Ca. Options are limited and some have many hurdles like waiting periods of 30 days and 1000 miles(both have to be met) Note: Driving 1000 miles during Lockdown Pandemic orders is nearly impossible anytime soon. Most don't offer a payment plan option either, so pony up $$$ or nothing. However this is not the case with Olive at all. No waiting periods of any kind, payment plans (no fee) choose from 3 different deductibles, provide basic info on car and a payment source and you're done!Quite easy and straightforward!Arnie was the gentleman who assisted me with my many questions as I have used another provider for the last 3 years and had several questions- I am very pleased with the enrollment process and hope to be equally pleased should I need to use the service.So far so perfect!

I bought this extended warranty for my Elantra that had 60k miles. Bought it on the 15th after speaking to a rep. for over an hour. I was sent an email stating within 24 hours I would get the policy contract details , in addition they would be mailed. I received the email with the policy attachment on the morning of the 30th and received the paper copy on the 29th. On the 20th with no warning my car wouldn't start , I had already put approx. 300 more miles since getting the policy so I had it towed to Hyundai and was told the diagnosis/timing chain issues. Olive wanted an EXTENSIVE TEST done that costed an extra $500. After asking for several items , oil change receipts, information on the car etc... I was told the claim was denied due to PREEXISTING CONDITIONS?!?! Excuse me?? The adjuster told me to look at the policy on page 1 , it said no rebuilt titles. WELL, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT TO KNOW WHEN I GOT THE POLICY AND WAITED FOR 2 WEEKS OF BACK IN FORTH AND A $500 UNNEEDED TESTING!!!!! BOTTOM LINE , How was I to know that that is a preexisting condition if I NEVER seen the policy information until the very day the claim was denied? I called to explain this , and to tell them the situation and also to explain on top of the $3000 repair and the extra 2 weeks of no vehicle because I had to go through the back in forth emails , pictures, receipts.....I now have a $500 charge that was NOT needed. I lost my job due to Covid the very same day my car wouldn't start, so not only can I really not afford the $3000 but another $500? NO NONE AT OLIVE IS TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANYTHING . If I had gotten the policy paperwork info in the timely manner that was suppose to have happened I would have seen that rebuilt title is a preexisting condition. I TOLD THE REPRESENTATIVE IT WAS REBUILT! NOONE CARES!!! The rep told me , preexisting condition is my starter being out when I get the policy and trying to make a claim , rebuilt titles never entered the conversation. BEWARE THIS CAN HAPPEN TO YOU!!! I am NOT finished with this by far!

My daughter took in her Jeep Cherokee as the engine light came on. After investigation it was the thermostat and hoses. All expensive to replace. According to Olive they only fix mechanical issues and not something from environmental wear and tear like belts and hoses. Very disappointed. So much for worry free coverage. My suggestion is don’t waste your money, there are better coverages out there.

I purchased Olive extended car warranty on 10/9/20. The agent that helped me sign up was Scott Watson. Scott was really professional about his job and customer service. Scott explained all the details about getting my car insured with Olive. Olive needs more sales agents like Scott Watson. Olive CEO give this guy a reward with pay raise or a higher position in your company. Thanks Olive and also thanks to Scott Watson. 👍. 😋

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!

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.

Smart Car History

The name Smart comes from the Swiss company Swatch and Mercedes Benz. Swatch Mercedes ART, Smart. In addition, add a lowercase c for compact. The company was founded 26 years ago in 1994 and is a division of Daimler AG. A German company based in Boblingen, Germany. Smart was founded in 1994 but the idea developed in late 1982. The CEO of the popular watch company, Swatch had an idea to create a vehicle that one would be able to personalize the look and features of one’s car. The idea became known as the “Swatchmobile”. He strongly felt that a stylish city vehicle would be popular among city drivers. After many car manufacturers turned down his idea, he reached out to Daimler – Benz AG which is the manufacturer of Mercedes – Benz and they announced a deal in 1994. In a press conference they released two concept cars. Both the eco-sprinter and the eco-speedster were introduced.

The first-generation Smart car models were finally completed for sale in late 1998. The vehicles were rear engine, rear wheel drive, 2 passenger hatchback city cars. Soon after, they added a Roadster to the vehicle line up. It was a rear engine, rear wheel drive, 4-door, 4 passenger vehicles. Smart continued to add vehicles to the family and eventually in 2006, announced the development and testing of their Smart Electric vehicle. Up until 2008 Smart cars were not available for purchase at dealerships only sold on the grey market. The grey market legally imports autos and motorcycles in the US outside of the official distribution system. The sales of Smart Car in the US did not last long, due to slow sales and rules and standards needed for the Fortwo model. Smart exited the US market in 2019.
