Volkswagen History

Volkswagen, known to its owners and consumers as VW was founded in 1937. VW is a German auto manufacturer headquartered in Wolfsburg, Germany. Volkswagen builds and ships their vehicles worldwide. Volkswagen translates to “People’s Car” in German. In the 30’s not many Germans had automobiles. Adolf Hitler ordered the production of a basic vehicle to transport families in order to have access to a vehicle. Hitler was very hot on this idea and in the end, sponsored the production of the VW Beetle. The Beetle was designed by Ferdinand Porsche. The VW Beetle became one of the most iconic autos across the globe. During WWII auto manufacturing changed to the production of military vehicles.

Post war, Volkswagen was an important element to regenerating the economy. Both the VW Beetle and the introduction of the VW microbus came in 1950. Then in 1955 VW introduced its sports car the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. It was a 2-seater, coupe convertible. Volkswagen produced the Karmann Ghia from 1955 – 1974. It is one of VW’s most popular models. With Volkswagen making more of an entrance to markets outside of Germany, they formed Volkswagen of America in 1955. Both the Beetle and the Bus were popular in the US market. Volkswagen continued to grow through the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Volkswagen continued to introduce vehicles like the Jetta, the Golf, the Polo and the Scirocco.

In 2017, Volkswagen announced their plans to create a new focus on electric vehicles. Their goal is to launch several new EV models. Volkswagen has over 120 production facilities across the globe and sells vehicles in over 150 countries. Their motto, “Shaping mobility for generations to come” is taken quite seriously within Volkswagen. VM is dedicated to make mobility sustainable for future generations. The Volkswagen group has created TOGETHER 2025. The goal is to make automobiles clean, quiet, intelligent and safe for all owners. This along with Together4Integrity bundles compliance, culture, integrity and risk management to create the basics for future success for Volkswagen.

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 a VW extended warranty for used cars sold, but are all extended warranties the same? In a word: no. Extended car warranties are like a promise, it’s only as good as the person making it.

olive is backed by an insurance provider with a long history of satisfying their customers. They’ve secured a consistent “A” rating from A.M. Best and an “A+” rating from Standard & Poor. We only partner with the best, so our coverage can be the same: the best.

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

the true 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 that five-year period 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, paying for serious mechanical repairs as they come up. But, unlike an extended auto warranty, olive covers more parts than your average extended auto warranty, and olive is backed by an insurance underwriter with a consistent “A” rating from A.M. Best, an “A+” rating from Standard & Poor. olive is coverage backed by a rich history of success.

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. 

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 leary of over-priced dealer extended warranties (which carry up to 300% markup!) 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 Ultimate protection plan not only pays for the covered components, but it pays for the labor and the metal hoses, couplings, seals and gaskets, linkages, and control valves (just to name a few). Now that’s coverage superior to an extended warranty! 

When you start adding up the cost of diagnostic time, parts, labor to install the parts, accessory parts, fittings, hoses, 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 warranty, without the headache.
