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.

Great experience. Stop paying for those overpriced dealer warranties when you can get olive at a 1/3 of the price. Very easy website and simple to purchase.

We are happy with the price and I will review again at a later date if we need to use the service.

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!

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!

Scott

Coverage Advocate

Scott stays active by tearing it up on the soccer pitch alongside his friends (he’s also lethal with a ping-pong paddle). Scott’s first auto-love came in the form of his faithful 1973 Datsun pickup. In “The Watson Datsun” he cruised all the way from Kansas City to Florida for a family reunion/theme park visit. When he’s not hitting the pavement, he’s eating killer KC BBQ, and cheering on his KC teams (yes, all of them).

When he’s not producing electronic music or volunteering at the Shriners Hospital for Children, you can find Jerry at the gym getting his pump on. His first automotive love came with a V8 rumble via his 1963 Chevy Impala Super Sport. Jerry’s most memorable road trip was when he crossed the border and drove from CA to enjoy the food and surf of Ensenada, Mexico.
