I have used a warranty from SWBC called Major Mechanical Protection. They were pretty no nonsense and fair.

With the M37 and all the electronics, I decided to get a warranty. I bought my 2012 with 66K on it. I got their top tier coverage (platinum) for 50K or 60months for $1700.00. I figured I could get some struts, probably motor mounts, etc done before the warranty end and break even. Well my power folding mirrors aren't working and it's starting to look like that repair is going to be $3000+. Also I think I might have strut mounts making noise.

Did the warranty cover the repair?

I just recently contacted Nissan USA, as my powertrain warranty just ran out, and my extended warranty is going to run out in 11k miles. Nissan told me their warranty goes up to 100k miles on the odometer. Is it worth for me to get this warranty once my Rogue crosses 72k?

I am definitely planning on purchasing the Infiniti Elite zero deductable around the 29,000 range on my 2017 QX50 which currently has 14,750 miles. I will have no choice but to get it prior to the 4 year mark (to avoid the $1200 premium increase going over 30,000 miles) on my bumper to bumper due to excessive miles.Regardless, it happens to be a great warranty and is not third party but directly through Infiniti. I had it on both my G35s in the past and more than paid for itself over the course of 10+ years of ownership. Unfortunately, here in Florida, the price of the warranty is regulated and I am unable to price match out of state. The longest term of 72month/82,000 miles is fairly expensive at around $3200 but still worth it as I have every package with a fair amount of electronics. I wouldn't consider going without it.

Hey all. I hope someone here can help me answer my question fairly quickly. I presume I already know the answer to it but I just need some really good advice from Infiniti owners.

I own a 2014 QX80 purchased October 23rd. I received information from the finance gal last week and is like to make my decision either tomorrow or next Monday. Can any of you give me some really good advice concerning extended warranties on the QX80. First lux vehicle I've ever bought. Bought one step down from the Limited vrsn.

This is what I was given concerning Extended Warranty pricing. As I said, any help or advice is sorely needed.

Hi Anthony:

It was great talking with you earlier. I have two different warranty options that are available for your 2015 Infiniti QX80. The INFINITI Elite Protection Plan comes with a $100 deductible, and provides you complete protection at all Infiniti dealerships. The Platinum Plan has a $100 deductible, and provides you with nationwide coverage at all repair facilities so you are not just limited to Infiniti dealerships. I have also attached the brochures for the Infiniti Elite Plan and the Platinum Plan. Below are the terms and pricing:



INFINITI Elite Protection Plans with $100 deductible:

60 months/60,000 miles: $7,252 + tax

48 months/60,000 miles: $6,232 + tax

48 months/48,000 miles: $5,477 + tax

36 months/48,000 miles: $4,875 + tax



The Platinum Plan with $100 deductible:

48 months/50,000 miles: $4,048 + tax

36 months/45,000 miles: $3,905 + tax

24 months/30,000 miles: $3,638 + tax



All plans start from date of purchase and current odometer reading. Let me know what plan is going to work best for you and I would be glad to assist! Talk with you soon!

Welcome aboard!

Holy hell. Here's how I'd handle that: It's clearly out of the original factory warranty... but if you take that column of numbers on the left, pick one, take that amount and put it in an interest-bearing account, don't touch it and let is sit, I can't imagine you can't be self-insured. Assuming 3 or 4 repairs over the life of the warranty adds another $400 to the cost, PLUS any non-covered expenses.

That car is ranging between $25k - $35k nationwide. I just don't see how giving them another 10%-25% for a car that's depreciating FAST is a smart financial move (in 5 years, that's a $9k vehicle).

Worst-case scenario, you have a major malfunction (likely in the electronics, let's say the nav/audio stack takes a crap). That's $3500 out of pocket if you take it to the dealer and self-pay. Basically, you just broke even (or worse, depending on the plan you chose). The drivetrain is proven - I'd not hesitate to take that vehicle well above 100k miles.

Good luck, and let us know what you decide!

Appreciate your response to my question. Original factory warranty ends October 23rd which is this this coming Tuesday. My brother just told me the exact same thing today Don't buy the warranty but invest that money. In the end these vehicles are built to last as long as you take care of it (fingers crossed)

I don't know that I'd call it a ripoff, but it's simply an insurance policy - and an insurance policy is a bet, where the house wins if they don't pay out.

I'd get her into the dealership tomorrow [yes, tomorrow]. Mention it's making an odd noise at speed, sometimes the radio volume fluctuates and the speakers crackle, the MPG is lower than normal, it's down on power, and sometimes it doesn't start on the first crank of the key. Make them go ALL through it - if they find something, great. If not, at least you got a full inspection and a free car wash. :)

By the way, $7252 (without tax or any $100 deductibles) invested in a good mutual fund over 5 years equates to an ending investment balance of
$10,655.57.

I like my chances with that bet. ;)

Hello all,

I bought my 2015 Q70 Sport new on 11/03/2014 and the factory warranty is about to expire. The car only has 24,000 miles on it after 4 years of ownership and I've had all the 5,000 mile services done at the dealership where the car was purchased. All work done has been been maintenance with the exception of a braking/steering pull issue and a shimmy when braking issue that was covered under a voluntary recall.

Would anyone advise an extended warranty in my case or just take my chances? Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

RichMarth

I just purchased an additional extended warranty for my 2016 Rogue, since the current extended warranty is about to be done soon (Rogue has 71k on clock) in about 1k miles. This new warranty gives me an additional 100k miles of coverage (coverage ends at 172k) for 4 years, which I will probably blow through this since I do lots of highway driving. But it should be able to cover the first transmission replacement (cause we all love Nissan's affairs with them Jatco CVTs). Apparently, from what multiple sales people told me, the dealerships should be able to find.

Not a chance.

The good news is, that's a bulletproof truck. Put $100 each month into a savings account, and this time next year, you'll have enough to do almost any repair or maintenance it might need. Drive it until it no longer makes sense to fix, and you will have gotten your money's worth out of it!
