Why are cars with mechanical breakdown coverage more likely to command higher resale value than their uninsured counterparts? Having a mechanical breakdown coverage plan on your vehicle proves to buyers that your car, truck, or SUV has been well cared for. In most cases, purchasing a vehicle that has mechanical breakdown coverage means that the owner has already fixed those vehicle-specific problems that are common to that specific make and model.

Given a choice between two identical vehicles, one with mechanical breakdown coverage transferring with it, and the other without any sort of guarantee, a consumer’s clear choice is the vehicle that is covered. olive.com® helps mitigate vehicle depreciation by adding resale value to your ride. olive.com® is coverage when you need it, and, when you no longer need it, olive.com® is coverage you can transfer when you sell your vehicle.

olive.com® our coverage is backed

Extended car warranties are like a promise, only as good as the person making it.

Last year, over 40 million used cars and trucks were sold in the US alone. Many dealers try to include a Kia extended warranty for used cars sold, but are all extended warranties the same? In a word: no. Extended car warranties are like a promise, it’s only as good as the person making it.

olive.com® is backed by an insurance provider with a long history of satisfying their customers. They’ve secured a consistent “A” rating from A.M. Best and an “A+” rating from Standard & Poor. We only partner with the best, so our coverage can be the same: the best.

An olive.com® plan is an excellent alternative to a Kia extended warranty, it’s frictionless coverage backed by an insurance mainstay.

the true cost of ownership

Vehicle complexity is higher than it has ever been, which also causes car repairs to be pricier than they’ve ever been. The average length of a car loan now sits at 68 months. Over that five-year period of ownership, the average cost for repairs/breakdowns is between $2,000 and $3,000. Many drivers are a breakdown away from taking a serious financial hit.

But it doesn’t have to be like that, olive’s plans act like an extended auto warranty, paying for serious mechanical repairs as they come up. But, unlike an extended auto warranty, an olive.com® plan covers more parts than your average extended auto warranty, and olive.com® is backed by an insurance underwriter with a consistent “A” rating from A.M. Best, an “A+” rating from Standard & Poor. olive.com® is coverage backed by a rich history of success.

coverage for every driver type

new car owners

A new vehicle is a significant financial investment and one that can depreciate quickly. Taking care of your investment is vital for the retention of its value. olive.com® helps keeps your vehicle in pristine condition without the stress of having to pay for large, out of pocket expenses.

expired manufacturers’ warranty

There’s a reason your manufacturer’s warranty only covers bumper-to-bumper repairs for the first 3 years/36,000 miles. After this magical date, your vehicle is likely to require expensive repairs. olive.com® goes way beyond your vehicle’s original warranty, letting you rack up the miles with confidence.


Between soccer practice, laundry, dinner, and impromptu water-balloon fights, we know that family life is a busy life. olive.com® is here to take the worry out of a mechanical breakdown, so you can keep on schedule and on budget.

educated consumers

It’s smart to be leary of over-priced dealer extended warranties (which carry up to 300% markup!) olive.com® plans cover the big expensive parts and all the little parts that connect them together. olive.com® is affordable, direct from the underwriter, coverage.

olive® the difference

Our olive.com® Ultimate protection plan not only pays for the covered components, but it pays for the labor and the metal hoses, couplings, seals and gaskets, linkages, and control valves (just to name a few). Now that’s coverage superior to an average extended warranty!

When you start adding up the cost of diagnostic time, parts, labor to install the parts, accessory parts, fittings, hoses, gaskets, and couplings, the true cost of a repair becomes a bloated, nightmarish affair.

olive’s budget-friendly monthly fee makes a ton of financial sense. olive.com® coverage acts like an extended warranty, without the financial headache.
