I don't think that's a bad deal for the mileage. I just purchased my Rogue in December 2016. At the "closing table" the finance guy quickly pressured me to buy a warranty extending the factory warranty to 10 year, 100,000 miles. He started at $4,000, I said no. 10 minutes later, he offered it for $3,000. I said no. 10 minutes later he said he'd give it to me for $2000. I said, can I take it home and read it over more closely. He said no, it's now or never. I was wary as he original asked (and obviously would have took) DOUBLE what he would have settled for. The 100k isn't so attractive, as I don't drive that much. The 10 year I would have been interested in but not without looking at the contract more closely. I would like to have taken it, but why it was "now or never" pissed me off - you would have screwed me for double the price, what else am I missing? Oh well, maybe when the 36 months is nearing the end and my mileage is still fairly low I may try somewhere. I am a little confused by who you bought yours through. Was it through "the Mechanic", the Warranty group" or through the place you bought it from?PoMansVan wrote:I generally don't buy EWs for all the reasons mentioned in this thread, but I reluctantly bought one for my recently acquired "certified pre-owned" 2016 Nissan Quest SV that had 32K miles on the ticker. This van was previously a rental. The CPO status gives it 7yrs/70K total of powertrain only coverage. The super-mega dealer chain I bought the Quest from deals with EW contracts through "The Mechanic" which is backed by "The Warranty Group". For 5yrs/70K miles of additional bumper/bumper coverage with zero deductible provided you use any of the service departments within this dealer group. $100 outside the dealerships. They originally came at me with a figure that was right around $3000. The lowest they would go was $2100 and I took it, but I'm somewhat sick about it. LOL. Regardless, I'm covered for 5yrs/ ~102K miles.
Dennis, sorry I missed your post! The aftermarket warranty I purchased was one of the preferred companies/ contracts this dealer chain likes to work with. I can use any one of their dozens of local dealerships for service should I need to.DaytonDennis wrote:........

Looking to purchase a 2015 Q40 with 23k miles - The original basic warranty expires at 60k or October 2018 (14 months), and the Factory Powertrain will expire October 2020 or 70k miles (38 months).Q451990 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 23, 2015 9:56 pmI think to some extent it depends on the car. The extended warranty on my first Q paid for 3 transmissions, a fuel pump, valve cover gaskets, an ignition switch, and a ton of other stuff. On the wife's G they made some of that money back. If I were buying a Maxima or Q40, I'd probably take my chances. With a car like a Q50 that appears to be very glitchy, I'd be more likely to spend the cash.
Is there any company you recommend for extended warranty over Infiniti Elite or if that is not an option. 2012 M56s?AZhitman wrote: ↑Fri Aug 03, 2018 9:51 pmTypically, I like to read the entire policy before buying... Even though I wrote this article a while back, my opinion (and suggestions) have changed drastically since then.
Truth be told, your Rogue (or any newer 'economy' car for that matter) will get 100k without major repairs. Maintenance is key, but unless you're buying something cutting-edge (or high-hp, prone to abuse-related failures), it's very unlikely you'll ever need the coverage. PLUS, your powertrain warranty will still be in place.
$935 in a good-performing mutual fund is $1350+ in 5 years. Set that $935 aside (and don't forget the $100 deductible) and pay out-of-pocket if it need something. Insurance policies are simply Vegas-style wagers, and the House always wins.
