Nissan / Infiniti EXTENDED warranty information

Postby AZhitman » Mon Sep 26, 2005 6:03 pm

You've just bought a relatively new pre-owned car. It's a beauty. Just the one you wanted, with all the goodies and power you dreamed of. You worked hard for it, you deserve it!

But the factory warranty is either about to, or already has, run out.

You KNOW you need a warranty, since even seemingly minor problems can be pricey if you're going "out-of-pocket", especially at $130+ per hour.

Image

There's simply no need to buy an aftermarket warranty through the dealer. Most dealer warranties are the SAME as you can buy aftermarket (I have owned two, and they were SPECTACULAR), plus you don't pay the dealer markup. They all use one of about 3 underwriting companies, and a warranty is nothing more than an insurance policy.

Many dealers will tell you their warranty is superior in some way or another, but DON'T be fooled - not true.

By the way, here's a great discussion of why NOT to buy an extended warranty on a NEW vehicle!

My personal experience with an aftermarket extended warranty: When I bought my 1995 Q45t, I immediately shopped for an extended warranty, as the factory warranty was about to run out. The one I settled on was 30K miles (went from 75K to 105K), or 4 years, cost me $1500 (payable in installments, over 1 year, NO interest), I could take my car to ANY dealership, get a loaner, and a $50 deductible each time. Your results may vary, but suffice it to say I was VERY pleased with my coverage.

I went to my local dealer, got excellent service, they were happy (always got paid immediately), and all was well. I've owned a lot of cars, and I recommend you check into getting your extended auto warranty through Carchex - and make sure to ask them about the discount for NICOclub members!

Here's some MORE information on getting an extended warranty for your Nissan or Infiniti...

We hope this information is helpful - Stick around, there's a lot more great resources here!

Thanks!

Never heard of them, but most likely a reseller of one of the aftermarket warranties. Anyone can act as a reseller, they just jack up the price, purchase the policy for the customer and pocket the difference (service fee).

I have seen this term too many times on all makes and models to believe it's a reseller. The main reason I'm trying to find this company is that it on my carfax! It maybe still in affect. PS I just bought the car. Thanks John

The Infiniti Elite Protection Plan will start the day you purchase it and the mileage allowance will be added to what is currently on your odometer (so if you have 25k and you go with a 60/70 you will be covered until 95k or 5 years from now). The deductible will not kick in until your original 48mo/60k warranty has expired and the deductible is per visit not per item repaired. Infiniti requires an inspection and verification of the odometer prior to issuing the policy, so please call or email me for the details. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the Infiniti Elite Protection Plan. Thanks again and have a great day

Hi, Tom –

OK – here we go. I’m giving you 3 & 4 year options

3year/36K miles $849 ($100 deductible) $909 ($0 deductible)
4year/48K miles $979 ($100 deductible) $1089 ($0 deductible)


Go for the 0 – you will thank me. Prices are so close it pays to go $0 deductible.

I recall the extended warranty plans by Infiniti being cheaper than what Nissan quoted. I "am" looking for a coverage up to 100k miles for about $1,500. :biggrin: With the option of being refunded 100% - 50% of the priced paid if the extended warranty is never used.

SS - Check out that link in the first post... see what they can do. As I recall,I think mine was pretty close to those numbers.

As far as your last requirement, I don't think *anyone* offers that. No actuary or underwriter would go along with it.

It's actually very common for extended warranties to prorate remaining balances. Nissan of Santa Rosa seems to offer the best prices. But are reluctant to share the contract disclosure of what is and is not covered under the Nissan "new car" extended warranty.

I just checked with our Dealer, Infiniti of Austin TEXAS and they say they have never heard of or have not dealt with CarChex!

Anybody have any good experience with a Infiniti Dealership using CarChex ?

The dealers don't "deal with" CarChex. Actually, they probably don't like them, because they sell the same coverage for less money.

When you go in for service (with ANY extended warranty), the service advisor is dealing with an insurance company (after all, an extended warranty doesn't "guarantee" anything - it's an insurance policy).

Here are prices I was quoted for the Nissan extended warranty. The terms are the criterias that I was interested in:

Nissan Security+Plus Preowned Gold Preferred NI1 48 mo. 48,000 mi. 0 ded 1820
Nissan Security+Plus Preowned Gold Preferred NI1 48 mo. 48,000 mi. 100 ded at 1570
Nissan Security+Plus Preowned Gold Preferred NI1 36 mo. 36,000 mi. 0 ded at 1740
Nissan Security+Plus Preowned Gold Preferred NI1 36 mo. 36,000 mi. 100 ded at 1300

I personally think the prices are still somewhat expensive. :tisk:

Thanks for the help this is very helpful, the car was sold. I found another one I like that is certified a 2011 with 42k miles on it, for $29000 is that a good price or should I try to do more negotiation. I wanted to less mileage around 30k but I probably won't put more than 5k on the car a year

Just trying to get an idea for pricing these babies

Considering the horrific stories I am reading lately, I guess I need to get a warranty for my 2014. I usually never bother as I average 45-60,000 mi a year. but looks like I may use this policy in less than a year. :mad: Disappointing considering last Nissan I owned was a 1995 Truck that I did everything but set it on fire & its prolly still on the road, laughing at its shell of a relative -2014 Nissan :facepalm:

Hey Paul, your best bet for that info is to go into the part of the site that deals with that particular car - that's where the other owners can tell you more about pricing. :)

From Autoplace Nissan in Buffalo, NY:
Warrentec
120,000 miles / 5 years / $100 deductable
No deductable if they do the repair
Covers everything electrical (read your contract, some have exclusions)
This contract lists exactly what isn't covered, so you're not guessing.
$1200
Every car they sell also comes with LIFETIME powertrain, no deductable.

Do you know the mileage/year limit that CarChex will cover? My Krom has 3 years left on an extended warranty through another company, which already refused to extend it further, so I'm just looking for options down the road.

Hi,

I just got a quote from CarChex. I have a 2007 M35 with 61k miles on it. For a 3 yr/36k warranty, I was quoted the following:

Titanium w/ Tech(you need this if you expect coverage for bluetooth, dvd, nav,etc) 2,930.73
Platinum w/ Tech and GPS $3,095.51 ( yeah I don't know how she managed to make prices go up for lower level coverage, but there it is)
Gold w/ Tech and GPS $3,033.45 (again, same as above)

I got quotes for bronze and silver levels too, but they are pointless as they do not cover seals and gaskets, so I'm not listing them here.

The prices above are all for $100 deductible, 3 yr/36K warranty. I don't consider this a great deal by any means, so I'm going to disagree with those who advocated CarChex. The sales rep was reluctant to provide me quotes for lower coverage levels. She initially quoted the Titanium level, which she clearly wanted to sell to me. And as you can see by the figures for the lower coverages, she made sure they did not compare favorably with the Titanium coverage level she wants me to purchase. I don't appreciate high-pressure sales tactics, especially ones that are so obvious. So I'm still shopping, and would appreciate any owners out there who have gotten better deals for similar coverage.

Re: Nissan / Infiniti EXTENDED warranty information

Postby AZhitman » Tue Jul 22, 2014 6:10 pm

Actually, there's a pretty simple explanation for the difference in pricing.

The Titanium program is the highest level of coverage a vehicle can qualify for and covers everything on the vehicle with the exception of the exclusions. The exclusions typically list items such as paint, regular maintenance items, upholstery, sheet metal, chrome, and other items that one wouldn’t expect to be covered under a vehicle service contract.

The coverage levels below Titanium are based on a list of covered items. If a part isn’t listed than it isn’t covered. The listed component plans can still be very comprehensive and a great option.

The Titanium product is a product designed for newer vehicles or vehicles with lower mileage - they're a lower risk, since they're newer. That's why they can offer more coverage for less money. The other levels of coverage cover less but the expected vehicles are those that have higher mileage (and are more likely to experience mechanical failures).

FYI: When we purchased our new 2014 Rogue SL (AWD) this past summer (w/242 miles), we also purchased a 120month/120K mile bumper-to-bumper warranty (w/$100 deductible) for $1,288 from the dealer. I think we got a decent deal on it.

FYI: Even with a warranty, unless your car ends up needing repairs the dealership charges like 150 bucks or so.

We purchased the Infiniti Warranty through this company since our west coast Infiniti dealership didn't sell one for our new JX. Sherry was awesome and beat everyone else's prices plus they financed it for us. We will go back again when we buy a new car.

Re: Nissan / Infiniti EXTENDED warranty information

Postby Meegan » Thu Jun 25, 2015 3:40 pm

Yesterday I purchased a Certified Pre-Owned 2013 M37x with 9,489 miles. My warranty is 6 years/100,000 miles with the car. I was talked into also purchasing the Elite Extended Protection Plan (Gold Plan) which extends my coverage after the 6yr/100k for an additional 2 years (8yr/120,000 miles) for an additional $2,329.00. I traded in my 2006 Infiniti M35 with 140K as it needed an estimated $4k in service repairs and also needed new brakes soon.

My husband was upset with me for purchasing the extended warranty and I called yesterday to cancel it. I received this email from the Finance Manager, "Attached are the two documents required for cancellation, I just need a signature on each. Please email these back at your convenience. I’m bummed you are deciding to cancel the coverage, it’s an amazing plan and I’m certain you will use it during your ownership. Please remember you have 60 days to cancel and receive a full refund. I encourage you to do some research before completing the process, as your vehicle has quite a few bells and whistles that can equate to costly repairs."

Her email lead me to start doing a little research today to see if I should keep the warranty, get one somewhere else, etc. I just sent in for a quote from the Infiniti Elite Vehicle Protection Plan at the Scottsdale, AZ location to see if they can beat what I paid at my dealership thanks to a few of the above postings. I am waiting to hear back as to what they will quote me. It's a hard decision as I already have a 6 yr/100k warranty and what if I decide to sell the car prior to the 8 yr extended warranty. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

So thankful I found this site!

Welcome aboard, Meegan!

That's a tough one - It's unlikely (statistically) that you'll keep the car beyond 100k miles, but let's look at what you got with the car... can you post up some details on the coverage? I'm guessing there's some info on there with a website where we can look at the exclusions in the contract - it may not be worth much, in which case a good bumper-to-bumper policy would be a smart move.

Have hubby pop in and ask questions as well - We're here to help. No reason for this to be a point of contention between you two, because ultimately, you both want the same thing: A trouble-free experience with your expensive new car (great choice, BTW) that's not going to become a financial boondoggle.

As I said above, my personal experience with an aftermarket extended warranty: When I bought my 1995 Q45t, I immediately shopped for an extended warranty, as the factory warranty was about to run out. The one I settled on was 30K miles (went from 75K to 105K), or 4 years, cost me $1500 (payable in installments, over 1 year, NO interest), I could take my car to ANY dealership, get a loaner, and a $50 deductible each time. Your results may vary, but suffice it to say I was VERY pleased with my coverage. My Q required $5600 in repairs over the duration of the coverage - I'd say it was a smart gamble. :)
