Very informative and the prices are good. Tried other Car Shield type plans, olive is the only one that did service in California.

Had an excellent experience. Olive is one of the best rated warranty companies. The representative was knowledgeable and got me set up in minutes. Really excellent service.

I was worried until my service writer said "no problem" after calling for authorization. From then on it was seamless and efficient. My Olive warranty is the best thing that's happened for my car and the most worry free purchase I've made in a long time.
