Why Invest in a Nissan Extended Warranty?

A Nissan Extended Warranty is a warranty that goes beyond the Nissan new vehicle limited warranty. A Manufacturer's warranty is the warranty that comes with buying a new vehicle. There is a lot of confusing information out there about how long a Nissan Warranty is for and which models are covered by which warranty that they offer. A Nissan manufacturer's warranty is divided into Basic Coverage or Powertrain Coverage.

  • Coverage on Nissan parts, from steering to air conditioning
  • Gold level coverage
  • Silver level coverage

Basic Coverage

Basic Coverage is for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. This warranty will cover repairs needed to correct defects in material or workmanship of all parts and components of a new Nissan vehicle. Why? Because a new vehicle should not be breaking down in the first 3 years or 36,000 miles. So, things that break must have defected.

Powertrain Coverage

The Powertrain Coverage is for a period of 60 months or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. This warranty covers any repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship. Powertrain coverage applies to the following components: Engine, Transmission and Transaxle, Drivetrain, and Restraint System.

What is a Nissan Extended Warranty?

A Nissan Extended Warranty goes beyond the manufacturer's warranty of 3 years, or 36,000 miles for basic coverage or 60 months and 60,000 miles for Powertrain coverage. Nissan Extended Warranty is known as the Security Plus Plan. This plan protects you from having to pay out of pocket for unforeseen breakdowns or repairs that are needed to keep your vehicle running at top notch. The extended warranty offers 24-hour roadside assistance, car rental assistance, reimbursement for towing expenses, 24-hour customer assistance, reimbursement for alternate transportation if you are over 100 miles from your home, including lodging and food.

New Warranties vs. Certified Warranties

Even if you are buying a used Nissan vehicle you may still have the option to buy a warranty. A new warranty comes with your newly purchased vehicle. With Nissan, a new warranty will provide coverage up to 36,000 miles or 3 years, whichever comes first. New warranties are normally transferrable from one owner to a new owner if the vehicle is sold provided, and if the vehicle hasn't gone over 36,000 miles or 3 years. With a certified used warranty, the used vehicle will be inspected first by a Nissan dealer and then warranties are offered.

New Nissan Extended Warranty

A new Nissan Extended Warranty will kick in when the Nissan Manufacturer's Warranty runs out. That means that if you buy an extended warranty, it will start right after 100,000 mile or 5 years, whichever occurs first. Keep in mind that you will need to purchase an extended warranty before the manufacturer's warranty runs out.

Certified Used Warranties

A certified used warranty is a warranty that is still in effect even though there has been a change of vehicle ownership.

Nissan Av​ailable Extended Warranty Plans

There are 3 levels of extended warranty plans with Nissan that you can select from. Those plans are Gold, Silver, and PowerTrain. These plans will cover you for up to 8 years or 120,000 miles whichever occurs first. Let's take a look at what's covered under each level.


The gold level will cover the most extensive list of components--2,140 to be exact--for up to 8 years or 120,000 miles whichever occurs first. Almost all major components are covered, with the exception of normal maintenance services.

Nissan models like the Leaf are great on gas and the physical attributes of a Nissan warranty are excellent, but purchasing an extended warranty for your Nissan vehicle is more than an investment in preserving parts. With a Nissan extended warranty, you get peace of mind.


If something goes wrong with our Nissan vehicle while it is under warranty, you can just drop it off at a Nissan dealer to have it fixed. You won't have to seek out a mechanic to try to troubleshoot what is going wrong. You also won't have to try to self diagnose the problem. There will be no long hours on google, troubleshooting or looking at where to buy parts. Just drop it off at a certified Nissan mechanic and go. Convenience means time for more important things in life. And time also can mean money.

Worry-Free Automobile Ownership

With an extended warranty you won't have to worry about how you will pay your bill if big repairs come up. An extended warranty can take the stress out of vehicle ownership. Many people have lost sleep and worried about how they would pay for unexpected auto repairs that their vehicle was needing. By buying an extended warranty you are taking that stress away.

Greater Value

If you sell your Nissan vehicle and can show that it was under warranty while you owned it, it will have a greater market value. Why? Because statistics show that vehicles under warranty are better-taken care of than vehicles not under warranty. Also, you could transfer your warranty to the new owner if the vehicle still had miles or years left on the warranty. This is a seldom looked at benefit of purchasing an extended warranty.

No Unexpected Big Expenses

This last benefit that I'm going to go over is self-explanatory and also the number one reason that many people purchase extended warranties. Because your vehicle is under warranty you won't have to shell out the money if something goes wrong that is covered under warranty.

Why Buy an Extended Warranty?

An extended warranty is much like purchasing any kind of insurance. Buying an extended warranty is like buying a safeguard for when unforeseen repairs come up. If you are not a risk-taker, an extended warranty is a great choice. Or maybe you don't keep enough in an emergency fund to cover unforeseen repairs. Whatever the case, an extended warranty may take the stress away. Even if you never use it, it may make you feel better to not worry what might happen if you need a costly repair. That in itself may make an extended warranty valuable to you. Of course, the main reason to buy one is that it will cover repairs if needed and save you money. Because an extended warranty can be financed into your monthly bill at the time of your Nissan purchase, it makes future repairs affordable.

Buying an extended Nissan warranty can take the stress out of vehicle ownership. With an extended warranty you won't have to worry about how you will pay for repairs if something breaks. The limited manufacturer's warranty is only going to cover the first 36,000 miles or 3 years, whichever comes first. After that, you are on your own if you don't purchase a warranty before your manufacturer's limited warranty runs out. You can either purchase the extended warranty when you buy a new Nissan or purchase it before the manufacturer's warranty runs out. There are 3 levels of extended coverage to choose from with Nissan. Those levels are gold, silver, and powertrain with gold being the most extensive and the powertrain covering a lesser amount of components.
