Founded in 2006, Endurance is a warranty provider that offers a variety of options for consumers seeking vehicle protection plans.
These plans offer extended vehicle warranty coverage for auto repairs resulting from mechanical breakdown.
The company offers extended warranty protection for new cars and for used vehicles under 10 years old with less than 150,000 odometer miles. Although, Endurance may give some exceptions to those rules. Whether you have a new or pre-owned car, Endurance has a protection plan to suit a customer's warranty needs.
As part of its coverage, Endurance also offers 24-hour roadside assistance. Upon signing up for car warranty coverage, Endurance offers a free 30-day or 1,000-mile money back guarantee.
Potential clients can choose a protection plan from four coverage plans. This allows potential clients to find an affordable plan that offers good coverage and value.
Technically speaking, what most refer to as an extended warranty is really a vehicle service contract. The only true warranty is the manufacturer warranty.
Endurance warranty services come in four different coverage options:
Each Endurance auto warranty offers powertrain coverage, so they cover the drive axle assembly, engine, transfer unit, seals and gaskets, transmission, and turbo or supercharger repair.
If these parts experience a qualified breakdown or malfunction, the Endurance warranty will help pay for the car repairs.
The Superior and Supreme extended warranties 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 also offers exclusionary coverage, covering everything, except what is noted as "excluded" in the vehicle service contract. Exclusionary coverage is the highest level of coverage because it is comparable to a manufacturer warranty.
You can view a copy of an Endurance auto protection contract on the company's website to better understand the terms of this auto warranty coverage. This means that potential clients can have a good sense of the value they can purchase from Endurance without undergoing a sales pitch.
Endurance's warranty services and auto warranty options allow car owners to find a service contract that best meets their needs and covers major auto repairs.
The monthly premium of a car warranty is determined by the age, mileage, and use of the vehicle. The average cost of an Endurance car warranty is typically $350-$700 per year.
However, the cost varies depending on the extended coverage desired and the condition of the car. For more detailed information about what auto warranty costs would be for your car, contact Endurance directly.
Each of Endurance's four extended car warranty plans also offer additional car assistance.
During any 72-hour period, owners are entitled to one roadside assistance service covered under the policy.
Rental car reimbursement applies during the time that a vehicle is in the repair shop for repairs covered by an Endurance service plan. These rental car benefits are limited to a maximum of $30 per day for five days per occurrence. Assistance with rental car costs is a great added feature to Endurance's vehicle service contracts.
Clients can receive trip interruption aid when a covered part or system causes a vehicle breakdown while the vehicle is more than 100 miles from home. With this assistance owners can be reimbursed up to $450 for costs incurred while the vehicle was not drivable and in the shop being repaired. Owners can receive a maximum of $150 per day for three days to offset costs incurred during a covered breakdown.
Each additional service and feature shows Endurance's commitment to providing great value to its customers and increasing clients' peace of mind and customer satisfaction.
Endurance's extended auto warranty plans are 100 percent insured by some of the largest and most respected insurance companies in the nation. Because of this, car owners who buy a warranty from Endurance can know that Endurance will be able to meet claims obligations of its extended car protection plans.
Endurance was founded in 2006 and has quickly become one of the leaders in extended warranty plans during its time in business. Endurance has also demonstrated that it is a stable company and is poised for continued growth.
Unfortunately, Endurance does not provide warranty coverage or protection from corrosion or rust to its customers. However, this is a fairly standard practice among extended warranty providers. Most do not cover repair costs for normal wear and tear or damage resulting from failure to properly service and care for your vehicle.
Car owners should keep their cars well-maintained to ensure that they do not void their warranty.

This company is VERY manipulative and out to get your money. They sent me a letter in the mail stating that the warranty on my car was about to expire, I called the next day and they said because I am financing my car through a bank, my bank REQUIRES me to have a warranty on my car. They charged my debit card $249 to "re-activate" a warranty that I DID NOT EVEN NEED. I called my bank the next day to ask if I needed a warranty on my car to keep financing it, they said NO. I called 4 or 5 times to cancel the policy but they kept talking me into keeping it and even lowered the monthly payments to $79 a month instead of the original $111.50 they were TRYING to charge me in the first place. I called today to ask when I could use the warranty because my car has been experiencing electrical problems, and they said I cant use it until I've put 1,000 more miles on my car. They even accused me of warranty fraud! They are the ones who TRICK people into paying for this warranty. I cancelled right after they told me this, DO NOT let this company lie to you and take your money like I did. LESSON LEARNED
This company uses unscrupulous tactics to get your business and to keep you from cancelling. The sales representative quoted a total price that was significantly less than what the payments added up to. I didn't do the math until we reached the verification process and it was at that time I told them I did not want to continue and to cancel. I noticed a charge on my account a week later and immediately called to cancel. The representative "Art" tried everything in his power to change my mind and when I wouldn't budge, he claimed he cancelled the contract and I would receive a refund in 3-7 days, but I wouldn't receive an email confirmation. A week later there was no refund and when I called, customer service didn't see any cancellation processed. I tried to cancel again with "Tony A" and he gave me the same schpiel as "Art". I called back and again, customer service did not see a cancellation processed. I will now have to contact my bank to get this refunded.
Very dodgy service. The immediately transfer you to a repair shop (in this case was Rapid Tune Chadstone) who can easily tell you whether covered or not but they do not, and after leaving my car there for 4 days thinking they have applied for the warranty I was told I was not eligible because not one of the covered items. The engine was heating up, and the warranty says engine and transmission, but because it was heating up from a radiator leakage they said this was not covered! Incredibly disappointing and you are better of without it
I was sold this warranty when I bought my Jeep grand Cherokee was told it was best warranty and it covers everything from bumper to bumper. I have brought in my jeep for service because the heat wasn't blowing. I was told by the jeep dealer that it was control heads that need to be replaced. The dealer called to but in the claim and was told it wasn't covered. The control heads control the whole blower system so dealer couldn't understand why it wasn't covered. I did call warranty company to discuss and was just told it not covered item and their nothing more they can help me with. I was do disappointed to purchase this top of line warranty for my vehicle. They are rude and they do not have any consideration. Why buy warranty if it covers nothing. I still have no heat in my jeep because I can not afford to pay for it on my own. It is in the middle of winter driving around in 20 degree weather with two small kids and no heat. It been terrible. This warranty company is bad please don't purchase them.
Agents were friendly, but use of the personal access portal is no good. I have only had it for a month, and have not used the actual product.
Have not used it yet. The customer service representatives are courteous.
Initial research, consultation and initiation of contract with the sales rep was positive. He was quite thorough and knowledgeable. However, when it was determined that the extended warranty was not going to be needed, the cancellation process was not as positive. While the cancellation and credit was handled promptly, the customer service rep was a disappointment. Understanding that his job is to try to retain a cancelling customer, his attitude was a bit rude and condescending. Providing star ratings is a bit difficult since my experience with Endurance had been limited, the customer service aspect was the cause of lesser stars.
Best prices so far I'm getting everything I could ask for
Great overall customer service and seems to be a great aftermarket warranty.
Sent emails to cancel. Should be NO CHARGE.
Excellent, friendly customer service with affordable price.
They wouldn't let me cancel. They guy told me to think about it for a week and get back to him and hung up. I had to go through the bank to get my money back. Do not use
It's ok, I just signed up last week, the people that signed me up were pretty amazing.
Easy process, great customer service, hope we never have to use it.
Purchasing was easy I have not had a need to use the service
I applied for a vehicle warranty extension at Endurance. The quality of product is very good.
Still pending. I am in my free look period. I glanced a few pages through the packet. I'll have to dedicate a good twenty minutes to this pamphlet which contains the service contract. For the money, I am estimating the cost of anticipated repairs over the contract years. If the car requires repairs and the ultimate cost is less than the service contract, well, who could know. Anyway, at the minimum, I know what it'll cost me for un-planned big-ticket repairs. The sales process was easy, I compared various plans and we found one that fit my driving habits. I didn't want to buy too much coverage, but I think they are all priced within a few hundred of each other anyway. Only certain types of vehicles fit the bill for one of their service contracts - within a certain year of manufacture and under certain mileage. Maybe they have 100k plans, but I wouldn't personally know. After a phone purchase, the contract was mailed to me and just received yesterday.
so far they have answered all my questions and their respnses have been very timely and informative
Endurance i s very company and his people are very helpful
Company seems nice but I think they are expensive for the coverage provided
One Star because I can't give No stars. They were quick to take my money. When I bought the coverage, I was specifically told that the suspension on my vehicle WAS covered. I was never sent a copy of my contract, but they took my money. When my air suspension had problems, they told me that they DON'T cover the suspension. STAY AWAY FROM THESE CROOKS!!!!!!
This is the worst customer service experience I ever had. I purchased the warranty 05/31/18 for my Hummer 06 and made all my payments. Well I was experiencing some electrical issues so I took it to a repair shop on 10/08/18 who the guy was familiar with these warrantry programs so he called Endurance up they sent the claim to United Car Care. Well UCC denied the claim stating there was a mileage discrepancy on the car fax report. Iam trying to figure out why would they need a carfax report to repair my truck anyway I got a copy of it and the on the report it showed that the purchased mileage which was 107 on May 1 when I bought the truck was saying purchase date 07/27/18 with this mileage. told them now I never reported anything to carfax, called my back where the loan is being held at and they said it was the state who prob reported it on that date since they have the title till I pay it off anyhow contact carfax they said there isnt any mileage discrepancy and they couldnt change anything on the report. I let United Car Car know of this also emailed them the emails that Carfax was sending regarding it wasnt a discrepancy on their part. They told me they needed a maintenance invoice in which I provided printed out with the logo of the shop and they denied that and said it didnt have my vin number. OMG I did every thing they asked and needed and they came back with every excuse it is now October 29th, truck still in shop since Oct 8th I have been getting rentals they will not pay for or reinburst me for. Her name is Ashley and Mario over at UCC both saying they are managers when I asked to speak to Ashley's mgr he (Mario ) said he was one but as I was letting him know Im very upset and this is not right he kept saying you need to speak to Ashley which she suppose of have left early Friday 10/26 when I called. He was very unprofessional and rude and he hung up on me and my fiance. This is uncacceptable. He kept saying his notes said for me to contact ENDURANCE so when I did spoke to Daniel w he was pretty ok but gave me the runarround talking bout he will get wit his directors and UCC directors and call me Momday which is today. Im so upset I fell for these warranty companies. I lost $700.00 so far and my Hummer still needs repaired. I would not trust Endurance they may have great customer service but when its time to get a claim in with United Car Care WATCH OUT Bc they will spin yo in circles till you are dizzy and nothing is solved. I cant believe they have warranty companies out here taking our money but dont fix the issue
Endurance claim they will cover your auto mechainical problems. However, when your car do run into problem and when you do file a claim, they would try every way to deny your claim. My car has mechanical problem thats verified by cars own manufacture mechanic Professionals. Endurance have been requesting unreasonable documents and ultimately deny the claim. The customer representive was not helpful and unprofessional. I would not recommend anyone to trust what they advertise. They wouldn’t cover you when youre in trouble. But they would take your money. It was a very bad experience chosing endurance. I would give 0 star if i could
They are extremely expensive compared to similiar companies.
Customer service agent was a lovely girl who immigrated from Bosni. A delightful girl, very knowledgable.
Before taking my truck to the dealer, I called Endurance and told them that the A/C had gone out. I had purchased their best policy. The Endurance representative told me to take my truck anywhere and Endurance had me covered. Wrong! Did not pay one red cent. In other words, it didn't matter that I checked with them first before the repairs were done.
My experience with is limited as I just purchased the policy and have not used it. The purchase process was simple and easy. I did have a question regarding the warranty and emailed customer service. I am still waiting for a response.
My request was simple I asked for a quote. I was barraged with texts and emails, and non-stop phone calls, but after several weeks had still not gotten the quote I kept requesting. I would never work with this company.
I have paid for my warranty for over a year. I took my car into the shop on Thursday June 7th before 8AM. It is now Monday afternoon at 2:30 and I have been trying to talk to Customer Service about getting the work authorized as the dealership has diagnosed it and has the parts but Endurance has not authorized my service even though it is covered by my policy. I have been on hold for over an hour and half. I dont think I would call that a brief delay.
I went to the company web site for a quote on a car i just purchased. It claimed that i could get a uick on line quote. I entered all of the pertinant information and it said i would be receiving an email with a quote. I received an email without the quote and was asked to call for the quote. I received a phone call which i declined to answer. I do not like being bombarded with phone calls as soon as any interest is shown. Why can an extended coverage company not give an estimated cost via email such as standard auto insurance companies. I received three phone calls within minutes of submitting my information. Guess i'll go without an extended warranty since the only way to get a quote is to spend extended time on the phone. It also appears by other reviews that the company often refuses payment of claims claiming existing conditions on the car. Isn't this why one gets insurance, for unforseen conditions? Guess i`ll pass on this for now.
A little high on rates, slow to deliver contract and paperwork
Its fine. I am secure and i have and extended warranty.
they cover everything. easy to use. good customer service. excellent repair coverage.
No reason. Just paid for 4 months and did not need their help. Now I do and had just renewed so will see what they will do. Friendly salesman of course.
the price ok,. and service is ok too...!!
I have had an awful experience with Endurance. I was driving my vehicle when the warning lights turned on and immediately pulled off the freeway to safety. It took a number of days for a "third party" to inspect the vehicle, they denied any payment according to my service dealer because they stated that I was operating the vehicle after the warning light had turned on. They did not provide me with any objective evidence of this being the case. They said they would not reimburse me for the tow, and so I called to speak with the company regarding all of the above. The customer service was unprofessional, they were rude to my wife and when I called I was equally unsatisfied. I spoke with the Claims Department Manager Adam K., he said on the phone, something to the effect of: "Well, you should have noticed radiator coolant all over the driveway if you were paying attention." For the record, we are very observant and take excellent care of our vehicles, there was no point at which we observed any liquid or coolant underneath the vehicle. I was quite offended at his suggestion, and the fact that he thought this sufficed as evidence to deny a claim. I guess we will see if they attempt to rectify the situation, at the end of this aside from the inconvenience of the delay in having the third party inspect the vehicle, their refusal to cover towing, their confusing denial after third party inspection, I only wish there was an option to give a rating of 0/5 stars, because I feel that I've received zero assistance and Endurance has been of zero value to me and my family.
On my way to work I heard an unusual noise coming my tire so I pulled into a Honda Dealership and they looked at it and said that the tire bearing need to be replaced. They called Endurance and a claims manager said that this issue could of started before the policy when into effect so they declined to pay. The dealership couldn't believe that reply from Endurance. I had to call Endurance and a rep told me that any part that can be called pre-existing is usually always denied and he personally didn't agree with that routine denial... The fix was just $83.00 after the $100.00 deductible... so they lost a customer over $83.00.
I have had Endurance for a month now and I am extremely satisfied with their customer service, especially with Martin.
Scott went above and beyond when answering my questions and made sure that I wasn't on hold while finding an answer that he wasn't sure about. He didn't transfer me to other departments or make me go through another process and was very thorough. Very happy with his interaction and positive demeanor.
Kevin D assisted me in cancelling my service. He explained all of the +/- of the plan. After discussion, he cancelled the contract with refunds which he assures me will be forthcoming in up to 5 business days. He was extremely professional and I just wanted you to know. Thank you.
MS K was wonderful very pleasant and knowledgeable of what I was looking for she was great.... She's the reason asking with your history that I signed up immediately
Kevin was extremely helpful and has a wonderful attitude !
I called to cancel my extended warranty since I sold my car. Dealt with Kevin and was quite impressed with his professionalism and efficiency. Had good experience with Endurance even though it was a fairly short time
Edfdie H has had great customer service with me every time I call in. I will only go through him when I have any questions about my policy or in need of repairs on my car.
Ran into financial hardship called to cancel, and manager eddie P took care of the month of January for me. He is a frigging saint
Mr. Eddy P, has been my main contact since I took out my service plan! He is always so friendly and happy! I appreciate great customer service and Eddy provides it every time I contact him! Great personality!
Customer service rep Kevin D was very professional and very helpful in helping me resolve an issue I was having with mepco concerning my warranty. Without Kevin's courteous and efficient service I would have cancelled my coverage.
I couldn't have asked for better service… I had an issue that needed resolving on an urgent basis, and not only was the issue resolved to my satisfaction, I got a call back confirming that I was satisfied! The initial sale or price may be really important to some people, but the service and the follow up when needed, is what gets My business ... :-)
My experience with the company is outstanding. Nicole demonstrate a highly exceptionable Standard on handling all of my conversations and handling my case perfectly. Nicole goes above and beyond the standard of the company policies to ensure her clients are well taken care of. Thank you Nicole for being that person for this company and making this company a successful company. I will recommend others to come to this company just for the way Nicole handle my case.
