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.

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.

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.

Scott

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). 
Jerry

Jerry

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.

Barbara balances her time between crushing weights at the gym, hiking and listening to audiobooks, all while cruising in her prized Mustang (her current ride and dream car). Her most memorable road trip was when she braved 17-degree weather to make a trek to the Grand Canyon.
Arnie

Arnie

Arnie spends his free time honing his swing on the golf course or fishing for monster burbot. His four-wheeled-freedom came in the form of a mighty Oldsmobile Firenza. He promptly took that Firenza on a road trip to Nashville to enjoy the food and sounds of Music City. Someday he wants the keys to a Bentley Continental GT Coupe.
Alex

Alex loves sports, when he’s not playing a pick-up game of basketball, he’s coaching his son’s baseball team, or cheering on the Golden State Warriors. Alex’s started his driving obsession in a raucous, 1988 McLaren edition convertible Mustang. His most memorable road trip was on a gorgeous drive from Cabo to La Paz, Mexico.

Ernie loves playing golf, spending time with his family and training in martial arts! He and his family's road trip of choice is Lake Tahoe and, on the way, enjoy stopping for a quick lunch at Texas Roadhouse. His first truck was a Nissan extended cab mini truck, which you could say is a little different than his dream car, a Porsche Panamera…coming soon!

She also loves to go to dinner anywhere on the Chicago River to enjoy the spectacular view and watch the Chicago Cubs. Tanya's first car was a Saturn Coupe, and she dreams of soaking in the sun adventuring in a convertible.
