Extended Nissan Warranties from the Dealership
The most basic level of Nissan’s Security+Plus plans is the Powertrain Preferred, which covers the repairs due to the mechanical breakdown of your vehicle’s engine, transmission, front-wheel drive, fuel system, four-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, suspension, electrical, brakes, and air conditioning.
If you select Nissan’s Security+Plus Gold Preferred plan, virtually all major components of your vehicle’s repairs will be covered, with the exception of routine maintenance. If you opt for the Silver Preferred option, you will receive the Powertrain Preferred components and the additional coverage of your transmission, rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, steering, electrical, brakes, and air conditioning.
Should I Get a Nissan Extended Warranty?
Why should you consider an extended warranty for your Nissan? Although they remain popular cars among consumers, Nissan ranked just 21st on the Consumer Reports 2018 Car Brand Report Card (and down from 18th on the 2015 report) with an overall score of just 64. In 2016, the rankings noted Nissan was “the most inconsistent product line” when the brand also ranked 21st on the list.
Not only will a warranty bring you peace of mind and save you money in the long run on costly repairs, but a transferable warranty can also help increase the value of your Nissan should you decide to sell it. Your car’s buyer will appreciate not having to go through the hassle of trying to choose a warranty plan on their own.
