I started searching for a good warranty for a “new to me” 2007 Mini Cooper. The car is gorgeous and I want to keep it that way. After speaking with 4 different companies is was obvious to me that CARCHEX offered the best coverage for the price. I’m ecstatic!

I finally chose a vehicle warranty company and after all homework and reading reviews...I chose the wrong company. Very poor service and will not pay for service claim. I feel like I was mislead. Very, very disappointed.

Only the cancelling was difficult.. I said I had severe macular degeneration & could no longer drive. That should have been it, but the agent insisted I HAD TO listen to all the other options I could choose instead. He HAD TO do this!? Finally I asked if I could answer now. His answer was "not yet!". I was actually WAITING for HIM to finish , like a petulant child! My obligation was to call to cancel my contract NOT to help him keep HIS job.

I am Still waiting for my refund after canceling my account, back in September. My payment was due on the 25th, I paid it early, (silly me) on the 20th, like I usually do. On the 22nd, I called and cancelled my coverage, I was asked to fill out a handwritten request for my money back. It is now Nov. 8, and I am Still waiting for my return. So inclosing, I would not even consider giving a rating until I receive my money back!

The Final Word

Both CARCHEX and Endurance offer 24/7 roadside assistance, car rental reimbursement, and trip interruption reimbursement with their warranty plans. However, the benefits offered by Endurance only come with Endurance Elite Membership, which is only included with the extended warranty for one year. After the first year, policyholders will have to renew their membership.

Both have a nice selection of extended warranties, though CARCHEX has a few more plans to choose from. With CARCHEX, clients can choose to add coverage for their car’s key fob, emissions, and luxury electronics. The ability to customize a coverage plan is a nice feature of CARCHEX’s extended warranties. More choices and the ability to add coverage are advantages of working with CARCHEX.

While both CARCHEX and Endurance are excellent choices for buying an extended car warranty, CARCHEX offers a few more plan options and the ability to customize coverage. These options and features give it a slight edge over Endurance.
