EnduranceAdvantage™ Preferred Protection Plan Explained

A mechanic in front of a car.

Purchasing a vehicle is an exciting milestone. A new car can mean new opportunities, new connections, and a new, reliable means of transportation. While a new car from a dealer will come with a manufacturer’s warranty to cover critical vehicle parts, many used cars do not. Investing in a vehicle service contract (VSC) or an extended warranty could help you avoid costly auto repairs that your insurance provider may not cover.

A VSC or auto protection plan, such as the EnduranceAdvantage™ Preferred, can keep both your wallet and your vehicle protected from unexpected breakdowns and expensive repair bills. EnduranceAdvantage can also help you stay up-to-date on all your preventative maintenance needs — at no additional cost.

Endurance Component Protection Levels

When selecting an EnduranceAdvantage vehicle protection plan from Endurance, you will have three levels to choose from — the Prime, Plus, and Preferred plans.

Each of these three coverage options comes with extensive component protection, unrivaled maintenance benefits, and expanded eligibility as standards. Endurance customers will also receive 1 year of free Endurance Elite Benefits such as access to 24/7 roadside assistance, tire repairs/replacements, collision discounts, and more with the purchase of any Endurance protection plan

Prime

If you are shopping for an affordable protection plan without having to give up coverage on some of the most important components of your vehicle, the Prime protection plan is a great choice. Ideal for daily drivers, the Prime plan is going to be the most affordable plan in the EnduranceAdvantage program and will offer extensive component coverage for vehicles 20 years old or newer with unlimited odometer mileage upon plan initiation. This coverage allows for your most expensive components, such as the engine and transmission, to be covered, along with a few other key components.

Plus

The EnduranceAdvantage Plus plan is best suited for the daily to moderate drivers with vehicles that are 15 years old or newer and have up to 200,000 miles. A step above the coverage offered in the Prime plan, the Plus plan offers customers a more inclusive coverage plan with affordable pricing compared to the Preferred plan.  You are also able to remove the mileage restrictions on both the Plus and Preferred plans. However, commercially used vehicles are unable to combine this feature into their policies.

Preferred

Offering the most comprehensive coverage available on the market today,  the EnduranceAdvantage Preferred plan is ideal for heavy-duty drivers or for anyone looking for near-complete vehicle coverage, with both seals and gaskets included. The plan will cover vehicles 10 years old or newer with up to 150,000 miles.

A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “auto warranty” or an “extended car warranty,” but it is not a warranty. A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s car 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. Not all vehicles qualify for coverage; Endurance does not offer VSCs in California.
