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!

I was worried until my service writer said "no problem" after calling for authorization. From then on it was seamless and efficient. My Olive warranty is the best thing that's happened for my car and the most worry free purchase I've made in a long time.

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.
