Where Can I Use an Endurance Extended Auto Warranty?

Certified mechanics and repair facilities across the U.S. accept Endurance auto protection plans. An Endurance extended auto warranty (more accurately called a vehicle service contract) is generally a wise investment if you have a used car.

After all, what do you do if you’re driving down the road one day and your vehicle begins to act up? Some people may continue driving, cross their fingers, and hope for the best. Others might pull over and take a look under the hood.

But if you’re an Endurance customer, you’ll just need to pick up a phone and give us a call. Almost all licensed repair shops and mechanics – and most definitely ASE Certified technicians – accept Endurance extended auto warranties.

Repairs After Your Manufacturer’s Warranty Expires

Unfortunately, if your manufacturer’s warranty or factory warranty runs out, you are liable for paying for any mechanical repairs. If you’ve had work done on your car in recent years, you’ll know that it is not cheap.

Insurance may not help, either. A car insurance company will only cover your vehicle repairs if a collision occurs. And Chevrolet, Toyota, and other vehicle manufacturers won’t cover your repairs if your factory warranty has expired. Unless you already have extended warranty coverage, you’ll probably shell out thousands of dollars to repair your vehicle.

Many dealerships and third-party providers, such as Endurance, offer drivers extended warranty protection for their vehicles. One benefit of choosing an Endurance vehicle protection plan over a dealership plan or competitors like CARCHEX or CarShield is that you can customize your coverage plan based on your vehicle, needs, and budget.

Though your covered repairs will vary depending on your contract, Endurance Warranty will generally cover the parts, labor, and taxes if your vehicle needs repair. In addition, we are a direct administrator of most of our plans – meaning we will work directly with the repair shop to handle the claims process while you wait to get back on the road.

Most certified shops accept an Endurance extended auto warranty, whether it’s an automotive dealership or a local mom-and-pop repair facility. And we can help you find a reputable repair shop when needed!

Repair Facility FAQs

Will my dealership accept an Endurance extended car warranty?

Yes, dealerships throughout the United States accept Endurance vehicle protection. We encourage our customers to choose the licensed repair facility that they are most comfortable with. If you trust your dealer over a standard repair shop, you can use it for your own peace of mind.

Does my local repair shop accept an Endurance extended auto warranty?

Yes, your local repair shop will most likely accept Endurance vehicle protection. However, your local repair shop must employ certified mechanics. As long as a certified mechanic works on your vehicle, your Endurance protection plan will be accepted.

Will chain repair shops like Midas or Pep Boys accept an Endurance extended car warranty?

Of course! An Endurance extended auto warranty will be accepted at any licensed repair shop. When your car needs to be serviced, show your Endurance vehicle service contract, and we will pay the covered claims directly to the facility. There are no messy forms to fill out or long reimbursement programs. A small deductible may apply, but this depends on your protection plan.

Where else can I go for repairs that are covered by my Endurance vehicle service contract?

Unlike most extended warranties or vehicle service contracts, Endurance plans are honored at any licensed repair facility anywhere in the nation. These facilities include dealerships, chain shops, or your local repair shop. Even if you are away from home, your vehicle will still be covered when you need repairs.
