If you’re looking for a Nissan extended warranty, you may be wondering what protection plans are offered by Nissan and by third-party providers. The experts at CARCHEX can help you understand and compare your options so you make the best overall choice.
What’s In a Nissan Dealership Extended Warranty?
Nissan offers three coverage plans for new and pre-owned vehicles under its Security+Plus extended warranty program. All Nissan extended warranty contracts are transferable for a fee, and your vehicle can be covered up to eight years or 120,000 miles with a $0 or $100 deductible. Below are details about Nissan’s dealership extended warranties:
Powertrain Preferred—Covers 839 components of the engine and transmission, as well as specific components within the vehicle’s suspension, steering, fuel system, brakes, and other vital systems.
Silver Preferred—Covers over 1,500 components, including all items covered under the powertrain preferred plan and some components of the interior and electronic systems.
Gold Preferred—Covers almost all components except for tires, brake pads, spark plugs, and other routine maintenance items.
All Nissan extended warranty plans also include roadside assistance, but only Silver and Gold plans cover car rental reimbursement, towing reimbursement, and trip interruption. You can choose between either a $0 or $100 deductible for any of the three plans.
Downsides of a Nissan Dealership Extended Warranty
Typically, dealership warranties are more expensive than third-party alternatives. The cost of this Nissan extended warranty can also be rolled into your vehicle financing, meaning you’ll end up paying interest on your warranty.
When you put your Nissan extended warranty in the manufacturer’s hands, your vehicle can only be fixed at a Nissan dealer. The extended warranty also won’t cover repairs made by non-Nissan mechanics.
Since dealer extended warranty plans provide so few options, you may end up paying a high price for coverage that you don’t want. Keep reading to learn how a Nissan extended warranty from third-party providers like CARCHEX can be customized for your personal driving habits and budget.
Extended Protection from CARCHEX
Instead of the three Nissan extended warranty tiers, CARCHEX offers five levels of coverage, with a number of customizable plans within each level. Each plan is backed by a reliable provider.
- Titanium Coverage, our version of a bumper-to-bumper warranty, covers nearly all components of the vehicle.
- Platinum Coverage is our highest level of stated-component coverage available.
- Gold Coverage includes components on all major systems of the vehicle, making it ideal for vehicles with over 60,000 miles.
- Silver Coverage is our plan that gives essential coverage to your vehicle’s major systems.
- Bronze Coverage is designed to protect you from the biggest costs associated with repairing your vehicle’s engine and transmission.
Coverage terms are between five and 10 years for most Nissan extended warranty plans from CARCHEX, so you’ll receive long-lasting protection for your vehicle no matter the mileage.
All Nissan extended warranty choices from CARCHEX include 24/7 roadside assistance, trip interruption benefits, rental and towing reimbursement, and other roadside benefits at no additional cost. That way, a mechanical breakdown won’t leave your pockets empty due to costly repairs.
Protecting Your Nissan for Years to Come
Consider Nissan’s track record for reliability and the fact that most Nissan models are not very expensive to maintain, costing an average of $500 to maintain annually, according to RepairPal. Though in Consumer Reports ratings, Nissan ranks better in dependability than GMC, Jeep, or Ford, it still ranks below Toyota, Mazda, Subaru, and other manufacturers.
Nissans generally last a long time, but after your three-year or 36,000-mile Nissan manufacturer warranty expires, you’re on the hook for all repairs. If your Nissan is used, check out our list of the best extended warranty companies for used cars here. To learn more about choosing an extended warranty for a used car, check out our guide here.
