Basic Warranty Features
Endurance has three plans from which to choose: Secure, Superior, and Supreme. Each of the warranties include the drive axle assembly, engine, seals, gaskets, transfer unit, transmission, and turbo or supercharger. The Superior and Supreme plans add the air conditioning system, brakes, cooling system, electrical components, front and rear suspension and steering to the covered parts or systems, giving coverage which is more like the original bumper-to-bumper warranty from the manufacturer. The Supreme Plan offers exclusionary coverage, covering everything, except what is excluded in the contract. Endurance does not publish the exclusions for coverage on the Supreme plan, however.
Some aspects of the powertrain system are covered by each of Endurance Warranty's plans. The company does not disclose the options for the length of protection for these plans, however. It is important to note that since powertrain protection is typically longer than other aspects of a new vehicle warranty that some vehicles may have double coverage under both warranties for a span of time. If there is existing coverage, the original manufacturer's warranty is used first before Endurance will pay for a claim. The engine, drive axle, and transmission are covered on each of Endurance's three service plans.
Each of Endurance's three service plans include 24/7 roadside assistance. Included in this service are towing to the nearest authorized facility (within 25 miles), lockout assistance, emergency fuel delivery (owner must pay for the cost of the fuel), and flat tire changes (with owner's own spare tire). During any 72-hour period, owners are only entitled to one roadside assistance service covered under the policy.
Roadside assistance benefits from Endurance are administered by Road America for all states except for Arizona, Arkansas, Hawaii, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nevada, Tennessee, and Texas.
Those purchasing a service plan from Endurance also receive rental car reimbursement during the time that their vehicle is in the shop for repairs which are covered by their Endurance service plan. This coverage is limited to a maximum of $30 per day for five days.
Endurance plans each include a provision for trip interruption. If a covered part or system cause a vehicle breakdown while the vehicle is more than 100 miles from home, owners can be reimbursed up to $450 for costs incurred while the vehicle was unable to be driven and in the shop being repaired. Owners can receive a maximum of $150 per day for three days to offset their costs which were incurred during a covered breakdown.

Basic Warranty Length
Endurance does not disclose options for the length of its warranties on its website because warranty length is dependent upon auto manufacturer, model, and mileage. In order to obtain warranty length information, potential customers must speak with an Endurance sales representative.
Low Rental Car Reimbursement
In the event that you need rental car, Endurance will only reimburse you no more than $30/day to help pay for it. This is significantly lower than other extended car warranty providers-some of which reimburse upward of $60/day.
Endurance does not provide protection from corrosion or rust through to its customers.
