Whatever car you decide to buy for your teenager; used or new, make sure there is a warranty on the vehicle, that way if something does happen or the car suddenly breaks down, you won’t be the one paying for the costly repairs. Let Endurance take care of you!

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.
