Coverage - 10 / 10

As with most providers of car warranties for both new and pre-owned vehicles, Endurance offers the traditional three types of coverage: drivetrain, named component, or exclusionary. Where they really set themselves apart is in their specialized coverage, which includes high tech components, commercial vehicles, and electric cars. Bear in mind, however, that Endurance limits their payouts to the trade-in value of the vehicle in question.
Limit of Liability: The average trade-in value of the vehicle as provided by the NADA Guides or the purchase price of the Vehicle as provided by a Bill of Sale.

First off, their phone reps know zero, cam provide quotes based of of regurgitated info from a screen. Monkeys inputing data, to spit out data to you. Could not tell me in specifics if the stock turbo was a covered item. Secondly, company refuses to warranty range rover. Not worth my time, and judging by other reviews where this company has cheated paying customers, I'd say I dodged a bullet by owning a range rover.

I purchase an extended warranty from endurance and when it was time to use it to have my transmission fixed they denied the claim that is not a good company to do business with.I have all the paperwork needed to go to court.

Hey Brad (Endurance rep) why is it you only follow up positive feedback with a comment and don't follow up with the negative feedback? I think we all know why Brad, because the negative feedback is true and you can't deny that.

I previously wrote a review in regard to the endurance extended warranty company. I WROTE a bad review on Endurance.Since then I have been contacted by John at Endurance.He explained that they write for interstate ins. Company too if your vehicle does not meet their criteria to be covered by them. . Because my vehicle did not meet their criteria for them they where 3rd party and wrote me a policy with Interstate ins. He has made things right as far as Endurance goes since then. I have nothing but good remarks for him and Endurance! I just wished I could have taken a policy out with Endurance!

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU BUY FROM ENDURANCE. I purchased a coverage program on April 20, 2017. It had a 30 day/1000 mi waiting period. After driving over 5000 miles (and well over the 30 days) my check engine light came on. I took it to a local repair shop and received a P2004 code. Intake manifold stuck open. I turned in a claim that was denied. They stated that it happened due to a carbon build up. They also told me that my repair facility told them the mode of failure. They never told them the mode of failure, in fact Endurance didn't want to hear what the mechanic had to say. Endurance told me it was denied, period! After several phone calls they told me that they would send an inspector... Read More

I had great experience with Endurance. My car broke down yesterday and I towed it to my mechanic, we reached out to Endurance to find out if the repair is covered and it was. The mechanic is fixing my car now and endurance will pay him directly, I only have my deductible. I'm so happy I purchased extended warranty, it really saved my money!

I submitted a request for info on the extended warranty, can't get an email, phone or a pidgeon for a response. If that's the response time on an inquiry, I would hate to see what they do when you need their services.

Very happy with the service I received today. Highly recommend this warranty company.
