Is an Extended Auto Warranty from Endurance Insurance?


When people search for an extended auto warranty, oftentimes they believe that they are buying a type of insurance. While the two are similar, they are also quite different. We field this question countless times a day asking if our product is considered Endurance insurance. Unfortunately, it isn’t. Fortunately, it’s better.

First, let’s go over what an extended auto warranty is. Remember when you or a relative purchased a new car? Well, one of the benefits to buying new rather than used is that the new car comes with a manufacturer’s warranty. This is the manufacturer’s way of saying: Hey, if something goes wrong with the car, we’ve got you covered.

But when this factory coverage runs out, they will no longer pay for any repairs to your vehicle. Those repairs will be left to you. But that’s where an extended auto warranty comes in, better known as a vehicle service contract. This form of coverage protects your vehicle the same way your original warranty does, paying for repairs if your vehicle ever breaks down.

Basically, Endurance Vehicle Protection is not Endurance Insurance.

Insurance does protect your vehicle, but in a completely different way. Because the roads are so unpredictable, many states make it mandatory that you have collision insurance. This means that if you are ever in a collision that results in damage to your car, the insurance company will pay for your bills. This is where the two work similarly. This is why many people (incorrectly) refer to our product as Endurance Insurance.

Think about how many times you have had to file an insurance claim: Probably not more than a handful of times, if any in your entire driving career. Now think about how many times your car has broken down and you needed to get it fixed: More times than you could possibly remember.

While collision insurance might be mandatory to drive in most states, coverage from Endurance can prove to be just as useful, if not more! But instead of having to wait until your vehicle ends up in the repair shop, give us a call today to find out how affordable an useful an Endurance vehicle protection policy can truly be.

*A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty”, but is not a warranty.  A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not. Endurance is an administrator of VSCs and does not sell warranties.*
