#14 of 42 Armada Warranty
Feb 19, 2008 (7:54 pm)
I just bought a 2008 Armada LE over the weekend (see details in the Prices Paid category) and they offered me a "Nissan 1" warranty for 5 year/75,000 miles for about $3,250, which I declined. I think they were trying to make up a little money due to the fact I got a pretty good price on the vehicle. He told me the Nissan 1 warranty could only be purchased when the vehicle was purchased.
Looking at the Nissan website I do not even see a "Nissan 1" warranty. Has anyone heard of the Nissan 1 warranty and if so is it different then the Nissan Gold Plus warranty?

Never heard of the "Nissan 1" warranty. Maybe it's their own warranty thing. I certainly wouldn't pay $3250, considering my 7yr/75K Gold Plus w/$50 deductible was only $1000 and can be applied at any Nissan service center. As far as when it can be purchased, it just has to be before your standard warranty expires, and it can be purchased at any Nissan dealership throughout the country.

Thank you for the information. I did some searching on the internet after the post and found some options, but not as low as $1,000 for the 7yr/75K Gold. Was that for the Armada, and if yes who did you buy it from? It looks like they were just trying to separate a fool from his money when they offered it at $3,250. It is nice to not play the role of the fool once in awhile.

I have to first make the disclaimer that I haven't actually picked up my vehicle (will be Saturday as it just arrived from Nissan groundstock today). With that said, I don't anticipate any problems even though everything has been done by phone, as they have been extremely nice and been following up with everything. I am getting a loaded Armada LE 4WD w/everything (MSRP 52460) at the same time as I am getting the extended warranty which is probably why they are giving it to me for so cheap. It is Upstate Nissan in Anderson, SC.

6/100K - paid $1890, zero deduct.
#19 of 42 My Extended Warranty
Mar 12, 2008 (10:13 am)
At first, I was going to just get the 7yr/75K extended warranty. Then I did the math and realized that 75K over 7 years amounts to an average of 10,714 miles per year, which is not enough for me since I plan on taking it for road trips because of the comfort. So, when I finally picked up my completely loaded 2008 Armada LE 4WD a few weeks ago, I upgraded to the Nissan Gold Preferred 7 year/100,000 extended warranty w/$50 deductible. I paid $44906 (included a $249.95 "procurement charge" which I didn't bother negotiating) for everything which makes the extended warranty costing ~$1800. The MSRP on the vehicle without the all-season mats and hood protector was $52,460. I thought the extended warranty was important because of the 4WD system. I thought the Gold Preferred was better because it covered more components and my Armada has every option in there possible. Plus, it "only" cost $600 to go from 75K to 100K miles and another $200 to go up to Preferred versus standard Gold. I think I got a good deal on the extended warranty because I just bought a $52,460 vehicle.

Ok guys and gals. I need to share my excitement! This past October I bought a 2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL with all the bells & whistles. She's stacked. I can't tell you enough how much I love this car. She's getting 26 - 30 miles to the gallon and not all freeway driving. Got her for under 28,000 including tax, license, & registration fees. I would never pay any other made up dealer processing fees. I also got 1.99% financing. Sometimes timing is everything. I suggest never ever buying an extended warranty package the day of the point of sale. You have 3 years/36,000 miles whichever comes first to shop. The day of purchase they tried to sell it to me for over $2,000.00 . Finally he said $1,875.00. I said I would think about it and would get back to them. I decided to search for a forum to find what others were paying. Well, it's nearly 6 months later and today I am going down to the same dealership, dealing with the same finance person and buying the 84month/100,000 mile warranty, $50 deductible, bumper to bumper for $1,200.00. I'm comfortable with that price. I think this car rocks and hopefully if she's anything like my old 1993 Altima I'll never need to use it.
#22 of 42 Nissan Maxima Continental Warranty
May 02, 2008 (7:24 pm)
Just got Warranty from Continental Warranty for Nissan Maxima 2005.
When I talked to sales, they said that I must buy right now or no deal. They cannot email me a quote and give me time to think. But they said I can pay 250$ today (fully refundable) and they send me package. I ve got +60 month, up to 100,000 miles with $0 deductible for $2100+ (after some negotiation). Can cancel within month. Should receive package within few days. I have slighly below 30K on odometer after almost 3 years since purchase day (original owner). Can anybody share experience or Ext. War. service with Continental Warranty. Plan name: super-puper Freedom Plus. Warranty is bumper-to-bumper (according to sales- I was mooched by two salespeople) and include roadside assistance, car rent and even hotel ($75/day). I ve heard some negatives about this company (they are in Washington State) that with these warranties customer have hard time to make their vehicle serviced becasue Nissan dealers and authorizationers cannot come to agreement when car need repair.

Yes the problem lies with the fact that Continental Warranty authorizes less money per hour than the dealership will charge. In fact a lot of mechanic shops will not take work from Continental Warranty just for that reason alone. What I've found out over the years that if you're going to buy an extended warranty do so from the manufacturer.
Every dealer can sell it so you can price shop the warranty rather than buy some 3rd party warranty where you don't even know if they will be around next year.
