Compared to other main automotive brands, Infiniti is fairly new, officially starting North American sales in 1989. It is a division of Nissan focusing on the luxury vehicle segment and has introduced hybrid variations to its vehicle lineup. However, with the continuous advancements of premium model vehicles come an increasing price tag for ownership and eventually, repair.
Infiniti warranties are in line with the offerings of its main competitors. Basic coverage lasts for the first four years or 60,000 miles, whichever occurs first. The next level powertrain warranty is extended to six years or 70,000 miles. These are the two most common warranties offered at the time of vehicle purchase, but there is a longer list of options when choosing a standard Infiniti warranty.
Once these warranties expire, it’s up to the driver to pay for repairs, an idea that may not be fully considered in those first years of vehicle ownership. In order to maintain coverage beyond the length of the original manufacturer warranty, it’s best to look into options for a vehicle service contract (f/k/a an extended warranty). Unexpected costs and a non-functioning vehicle does not make for a good combination, especially for the majority of people who maintain an on-the-go lifestyle.
Average Repair Costs for Infiniti Vehicles
It’s not as likely brakes will need replaced in the first few years of driving, but as the years go on, it may become a necessity. Without coverage, brake repairs for an Infiniti can start at $100, but can quickly escalate closer to $1,000, depending on the severity of the repair(s) needed.
Paying out of pocket for these types of expenses is not ideal for anyone, which is where extended coverage comes into play. A vehicle service contract (f/k/a an extended warranty) can offer peace of mind for those who wish to maintain their budget when their vehicle is in need of major repair and their initial manufacturer warranty has expired. Consider it protection against the unexpected.
|Wheel bearing replacement||$186 to $1,241|
|Valve cover gasket(s) replacement||$87 to $1,360|
Choosing a Vehicle Service Plan
The choice for vehicle repair coverage of any kind requires research and understanding of what is covered and for how long. Coverage choices through US Car Protection includes three plans: Platinum Protection, Comprehensive Protection, and Powertrain Plus.
Each policy covers major components and are customizable. Each vehicle make and mileage will be taken into consideration to determine which plan is best. For example, the Comprehensive Protection plan is geared towards those who own older vehicles. Whereas, the Powertrain Plus plan works best for vehicles that already have high mileage.
