Datsun, Infiniti, and Nissan are all motor vehicles sold under the Nissan Motor Company brand, a Japanese automaker founded in 1933. As of 2013, it ranked 6th as the world’s largest automaker with a full assembly line of cars, trucks, and SUVs, including the popular Nissan Rogue, Nissan Versa, and Nissan Altima.
The standard Nissan manufacturer warranty provides limited vehicle coverage for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Drivers may also purchase additional coverage under the Nissan powertrain warranty covering 60 months or 60,000 miles or an extended warranty of 10 years/120,000 miles for vehicles equipped with a continuously variable transmission.
And, recently, Nissan Motor Company increased its warranty for the 2017 Titan (full-size truck) to a 5-year, 100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty which rivals its competitors’ 3-year/36,000-mile warranties on trucks.
Drivers who have purchased their vehicles used from a third party may have received a Nissan certified pre-owned warranty, which may include separate coverage than the manufacturer contracts listed above. Whenever you make a vehicle purchase, carefully read through your contract to understand what repair coverage is (and is not) included.
Average Repair Costs for Nissan Vehicles
Modern-day vehicles are made with more advanced technology and better equipment, which is great news for car buyers. However, it also means the original warranty received at time of purchase may not be used within those first few years. Vehicle repairs like faulty brakes or engine and transmission problems usually occur further down the road, possibly after your original warranty has expired.
In order to prepare for these inevitable costs, US Car Protection offers drivers vehicle service contracts (commonly referred to as extended warranties) with different levels of coverage to include major parts of a vehicle’s engine, water pump, starter, alternator, and more.
The chart below is a snapshot of average vehicle repair costs for Nissan. If the average minimum totals nearly $300, plus the cost of labor and rental car expenses, this can quickly add up in a short period of time.
With a US Car Protection, you know ahead of time which parts are covered in your contract. Additionally, there is rental car reimbursement, towing services, and direct payment to the vehicle repair facility available to you as part of your coverage. Not only does this help alleviate cost, it can help mitigate the inconvenience that comes with vehicle repair.
