Leticia was patient, kind, knowledgeable and caring about my experience with your company. She went above and beyond to meet my needs. I had a complicated issue and was very frustrated. She de-escalated my frustration and walked me through the entire process and went and got assistance to get my issue resolved. She called me back with all the details.

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.
