Top 10 Best Extended Auto Warranty Companies

If you are in the market for extended coverage, finding the right extended warranty provider for your vehicle is essential. You want to have a peace of mind knowing that you are protected by the highest rated and the most trustworthy company out there. You don’t want to find out that your breakdowns are not covered and be stuck with high repair bills.

Below is the list of the best vehicle service contract providers in the United States (also known as extended warranties) based on coverage plans, pricing, claims support and customer service.
The Top Ten
1 Endurance

I have had my policy with Endurance Warranty for 2 years now, and I am completely satisfied. I always purchase a warranty for my vehicle whenever I buy it, because I have had my share of rough luck when it comes to cars. I know that it is better to be protected than to be left hanging high and dry when your car breaks down.

Endurance's service is really great. Whenever I call their customer service department to ask a question, pay my bill, or check on a claim, they are always so nice and helpful. They definitely get an A+ for service.

And the roadside assistance is a total lifesaver. My battery has died a few times, and they come right out to jump my car. The guy even followed me to the repair shop to make sure I got there okay. It's nice to see a company who really cares.

I have two cars covered by Endurance, and I have had zero issues with them. Each time my car has acted up, I have taken it to the dealer and had all issues resolved in a matter of a few hours. There were two times where the car had to be worked on for a few days, but I got a free rental car for those moments.

What I liked best is that their customer service is excellent. They have always been very nice and quick to get claims processed every time I call. I also had to have my credit card replaced because of the whole Target/Chase Black Friday issues last year, and I forgot to change my payment card for my policies. They waived my late payment fees and even pushed one of my payments back so I didn't have to pay two months all at once. They really do help you out.

I highly recommend them and tell all of my friends that if they are looking for a quality warranty that covers everything and that they can afford, they should go to Endurance.

I had a great experience with Endurance on my last vehicle, and I hope to have just as great an experience with my new one. I had a policy on my car before I moved to the "big city" (the mini apple) so I didn't have a need for my car when I moved two blocks away from my new job. Well, things have changed and now I need a car again. I just purchased one for a great deal and immediately called Endurance. The last car I had turned out to be a bit of a lemon, for which I am thankful I had the policy on. Out of five things that went wrong with that car in the four years I had it, Endurance paid for all of them. The only things I had to pay for were the deductible for each repair and one time when I used the wrong roadside assistance. However, they took care of a monthly payment for me, which they didn't have to do.

Anyway, I was very pleased with their service years ago, and I have no doubt it will be the same experience again. I also got a really great price for being a ...more

Great company! The customer service representative was very helpful and respectful (I think his name was Steven). He explained how the coverage works and what to expect. He mentioned what wear-and-tear items might not be covered, which makes sense. I haven't filed a claim yet, but I hope that everything will go just as I was told. So far, I'm very satisfied with them.

I bought the highest protection plan they offered, which covers almost everything. I would recommend everyone to do the same if you don't mind paying extra money (I think it was just $400 more than their regular coverage).

2 Carchex

I was recently shopping for an extended warranty on my vehicle and I checked out about 6 different companies. Carchex was the easiest to use, provided the best coverage for the price and seemed to have the best customer service. They were very friendly, patient and knowledgeable. While I hope to never need your services, I know you will be there if I do. Keep up the good work!

This company is good. Just like Endurance warranty they are not a scam. Both companies are very reliable and trustworthy. Not sure why Wanted auto protect is second... Weird. I wouldn't buy from them, I heard that wanted auto protect had a class action lawsuit...

Received a call from them after filling out multiple quotes online on different websites. They seem to offer good coverage and good prices. Purchased it last month and haven't used it yet. Will see how things go.

CARCHEX is by far the best company to purchase a vehicle protection plan from.

5 autopom!

I have gone to different extended auto warranty companies and had to come back to this company because they are so friendly and so professional. They offer various coverage plans and have flexible financing options. If you are looking for the best auto warranty this is a great place to look. This list has all the best companies and very helpful reviews from real people. I would highly recommend doing a research before buying a warranty for your car, especially for a used car. Remember though that sometimes they try to raise prices at renewal time if you don't stay on top of your policy.

Great company. I got great coverage from them, and I am very happy with it.

7 ForeverCar

Good extended car warranty company. I would rank it after Endurance Warranty. I think it's reliable.

8 Concord Auto Protect
9 Toco
10 EasyCare

It was a fantastic experience with EasyCare. I dealt with this company to get an extended auto warranty. They did exactly as they promised. I am very satisfied with their prompt response and helpful service. They are true professionals and experts in this aspect of getting auto warranties. As a customer, I really appreciate the way they completed the deal for me. I am so glad to recommend them. Keep up the good work!

I bought the coverage about a year ago from EasyCare. I haven't filed a claim yet, but I've read a lot about the company and it looks legitimate. They say that they've paid out over $2.3 billion in claims already. I bought it from a dealership.

The Contenders
11 Infinite Auto Protection
12 Continental Warranty

I have been calling around trying to find an extended warranty for my car for a while now, and I think that this company, at least so far, has been the best. The representative told me that they offered multiple levels of coverage, and that he was sure that he could find me an auto warranty that not only fit into my budget, but also would put my mind at ease and give my car the protection that I need. I haven't decided to buy yet, because I still need to call a few other companies and see what extended warranties they offer. But I have to say, from my experience with them so far, I am impressed.

I purchased a warranty from this company a few years ago for my Honda. They were very informative on the phone and seem to be a reputable auto warranty company. With so many warranty providers out there, it's hard to know which one is the best. I guess you can't find out until you file a claim. A friend of mine had Endurance warranty and said that they are good too. Overall, my experience with Continental Warranty has been good, but again I haven't had a chance to file a claim yet, and this seems to be the reason why so many people are upset with other companies - claims not being approved.

If you ask me if I would recommend Continental Warranty to a friend, I don't know.

13 National Vehicle Protection Services

I have been looking for a warranty for my Toyota Camry for about two months now. I have been doing all my research to ensure that I not only pick the right company, but also get the best price and the highest level of coverage.

I called National Vehicle Protection Services and their representative was very friendly and seemed very knowledgeable about their warranties and how they worked. Their quote was a lot cheaper than most of the other places I checked, but I am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing.

I have been warned on a lot of different websites that I shouldn't just go with the cheapest option, but that I should go with a company that offers good coverage that I can afford from a company that I can trust. Unfortunately, I can't find that much information about these guys, which worries me some. But for the moment, they will be my top pick when I finally decide to buy a warranty.

National Vehicle Protection Services is the top company on this list in regards to customer support and in paying claims. NVPS works directly with hundreds and hundreds of dealers, most of the warranty companies and the largest most well known roadside assistance membership companies providing all of their remarketing services. I would definitely make sure you receive a quote through NVPS. Their whole culture is not only the highest level of customer support but also an environment where they find ways to ensure claims are getting paid. You can get a quote at or call 8775159966.

14 Key Vehicle Resources

I was trying to find the best extended auto warranty company because I had heard some horror stories about certain companies and wanted to make sure that I avoided them. Anyway, I found Key Vehicle Resources online and called in to get an estimate for coverage and to find out more about the company. The representative that I spoke with was very helpful and gave me a lot of information to go over with my husband. We have not purchased our coverage plan yet, but I will be calling them once I have moved some money around and get paid for this period. Overall, I was very happy with the service that I received from this warranty company.

15 Century Automotive Service Corp
16 Route 66 Warranty

I am in negotiation with Route 66 regarding my current car. However, I have to get out of my current contract with Easy Care Warranty because they refuse to pay for an air conditioning problem that I believe they should pay for. The dealer sold me a "Stated Care" Easy Care warranty, but it turned out to be worthless when Easy Care stated that my warranty did not cover an "accumulator door" for the AC system, even though they call the "Stated Care" warranty that I was sold "a comprehensive warranty" with regards to the AC system. In my opinion, they are crooks.

Route 66 is sold through my credit union, and the initial quote is fairly low while the coverage is "comprehensive" in the true sense of the word. When I get my car back from the dealer (who, incidentally, agreed to pay half the cost of my AC repair), I plan to drop the Easy Care coverage and I will most likely get the Route 66 one.

I was looking for an extended warranty for about 2 months before I found these guys. I was starting to lose my mind after the search didn't turn up any companies that I felt safe going with. I called about 10 or 20 companies before I decided to choose coverage from this company.

I will tell you that out of all of the companies and salespeople I talked to, I was the most impressed with these guys. They were very patient with me and they didn't make me feel rushed when I wasn't yet ready to buy. They explained everything in a way that I could understand. I hate when people in the automotive industry try to use a lot of big words or specific terms relating to my vehicle. I know it's just to confuse me and scare me into buying whatever they're trying to sell. I was happy to see that they didn't try this on me.

Their prices are affordable too! I was able to get monthly payments that were surprisingly low for a 2009 Nissan Versa. Every other company quoted me at a much higher ...more

17 GEICO (Mechanical Breakdown Coverage)

Includes all parts and systems, not just the specific list of items covered by most dealer warranties. The protection plan saves you money, charging only a small premium for each policy period, instead of one payment upfront. This extended auto warranty lets you get your car repaired wherever you like, at any repair shop.

"Peace of mind. It is cheaper than an aftermarket warranty from the factory."

18 AAA The American Automobile Association is a federation of motor clubs throughout North America. AAA is a privately held national member association, and service business with over 58 million members in the United States and Canada. AAA provides services to its members, including roadside assistance and others.

This extended auto warranty company is the best. They were very helpful when I was buying my coverage, and they always answer my questions when I call. I would recommend them to friends and family.

This list also includes very reliable and trustworthy auto warranty companies.

19 CARS Protection

I called in to update my home address and request a new information packet. I was connected with a representative who spent more than 15 minutes on the phone with me trying to update my address in the system. The system was not working properly, but the representative was patient and helpful. He walked me through my extended auto warranty policy and gave me a lot of useful information about required maintenance. He didn't waste a minute of the call.

Thank you for all your help. With the high cost of car repairs, we all deserve the peace of mind that an extended car warranty can provide. I would recommend everyone who has a vehicle that is 2 years old or older to purchase an extended car warranty.
