When you pick up a new Nissan, it’s smart to think: “Should I buy extended warranties?” After all, you’ll want to enjoy the best protection possible. They aren’t for everyone, but there’s no denying the advantages you’ll enjoy by taking out an extended warranty. With that in mind, we’ve put together a quick but comprehensive guide covering everything you need to know. Learn more with our finance team at Douglass Nissan of Waco below!

Understanding Extended Warranties

Before you think about extending your warranty, you should first familiarize yourself with the standard Nissan warranty. At present, every new Nissan comes as standard with:

  • 36 Months/36,000 Miles of Limited Vehicle Coverage
  • 60 Month/60,000 Miles of Limited Powertrain Coverage

However, you might want to extend that coverage over a longer period, and that’s where extended warranties come into the picture. They pick up where the standard warranty leaves off.

Why Should You Take Out Extended Warranty Coverage?

  • Peace of Mind: Modern vehicles use cutting-edge technology, which means you’re less likely than ever to be involved in an accident. That said, such technology is more complex, so repair costs can be steep. That’s why it’s better to protect yourself for longer.
  • Convenience: Extended coverage plans often provide compensation for more than the cost of repairs. You’ll also get towing services and even money for hotel stays covered.
  • Easier Budgeting: Some people like to gamble that they won’t need repairs, but it’s always easier to budget when you know exactly what you’ll need to pay each month. Would you rather have a fixed rate or have to save for unexpected costs?
  • Superior Servicing: It’s more convenient to keep using manufacturer service centers when you’ve taken out an extended warranty, which means enjoying the attention of experienced and certified technicians.
  • Retained Value: Extended warranty programs become more valuable as the vehicle gets older. Such models are more likely to be well-maintained, so they hold their value better and should command a higher price than others when you come to sell.
