#1 of 51 How much did you pay for extended warranty
Mar 18, 2007 (7:06 pm)
How much are people paying for an extended warranty for an 07 G35 Sedan? (please state deductable and years). I was told that once the car has something like 6 months on it, the extended warranty costs more from Infinity -- is this correct? Does anyone know of any dealers discounting the warranty selling over the internet?
#2 of 51 Warranty coverage
Mar 20, 2007 (3:25 pm)
I have a certified I30 which is covered under a 7-year, 100,000-mile warranty. The "service engine soon" light came on the day before yesterday. I made an appointment with the Infiniti dealer yesterday and brought the car in this morning. It turned out that the oxygen sensor needs to be replaced. The dealer said that the O2 sensor itself is covered under warranty. However, in order to install the new sensor, the dealer said a new computer program has to be installed, which is NOT covered under warranty and will cost me $120. To me, it doesn't make sense at all. If it is required, shouldn't it be covered by the warranty? I suspect the dealer is just trying to squeeze some extra money out of me (in addition to the $50 deductible).
I've seen many times in Acura, BMW, and other forums that people are routinely getting free software upgrade during the warranty period, especially for first-year models. So, I thought it should be free of charge for Infiniti as well. Does Infiniti always charge customers for software upgrade even during the warranty period? Please help, thanks.
By the way, I hope it's OK to post my I30 question here since it also applies to G35.

I am also interested in knowing this. When I purchased my 07 G35 Journey, the dealer offered a 6 year 100K miles extended warranty for $2500 from a 3rd party. It also has ad deductible which I don't remember the amount. I didn't get it and want to see how much is the factory warranty.

I decided not to grab the extended when I pick mine up (This week hopefully)
But, I'm starting to see more and more keyless issues with the car leaving people stranded.
The thought of being 100 miles away from home in a dead car with no roadside assistance kills me.
If I pay $2500 for the warranty, I'll never need it.
If I don't buy it, I'll wish I had.

Invest the money somewhere and hold on to it in case you need it for repairs. In other words, use it to self-insure.

I agree... but it's not so much the cost of repairs.
It's the thought of being stranded.
At least with Road Side Assistance, you get a tow, ride and loaner.
Being stranded stinks.
With my luck, it'll be in that neighborhood that Chevy Chase took his Family Truckster through when his hubcaps were stolen.

$2,500 for a 3rd party warranty, 6 year, 100,000 miles for a new G35 is probably at least $1,000 more than you should be paying. I ended up paying less than $1,6000 for a 7 year, 100,000 miles with $50 deductable for a Infiniti Warranty. There is a pretty large markup on warranties and some dealers try to get as much as they can get. Remember, you can buy your Infiniti warranty from any dealer in the country. I've found that with other car brands, some dealers will advertise on the internet. Also, keep in mind that it's generally safer to get the manufacturer warranty than a third party. Hope this helps.

What are people's thoughts on purchasing the Infinity Extended Warranty on a loaded G35 Sedan? Is there any point to buying it upfront vs. buying it before factory warranty expires? Anybody know of any dealers selling it at a significant discount? If you buy it upfront, you don't get any significant benefit from it for four years, but it will begin being prorated from purchase date (if you traded in your car).

The dealer offered me a 100,000 7yr warranty, but it was $2,500.
I turned it down, thinking I could find better somewhere else.
It's good to get into one as soon as possible.
The Infiniti price changes 90 days after taking delivery.
Most third party providers set their price on the mileage the car currently has.
Getting it as soon as possible saves you money.
I personally thought I would skip it, but as I get to know all the bells and whistles in my fully loaded 'X', I'm starting to think a warranty may be a good idea.

Check out the 3rd party warranty places, like warrantydirect.com they have the 07G35 for 7/100 $0 deductible for $1300. or you can get their best bumper to bumper for less then $2400 on an 8/120 $0 deductible.
I've heard of people getting the Infiniti warranty for $1600. you might want to give them a call and make an offer at that price and see if they bite.
Some people think your better off taking that money and investing it to make money. Using it if you need it.. if you don't use it, it's still your cash. but personally I'm not worried about nickle and dime issues, I'm concerned about major $4K repairs that you have to get done in order to even dump the car. i.e. powertrain.
