#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.

I just purchase a 2009 Nissan Murano. I love it but I am totally confused by how they "screwed" me on the Security Plus Agreement. They gave me a Gold Preferred 36 months/45,000 miles for $1500. This does nothing for me because the car is covered by the Warranty for that time period. Next they gave me a Maintenance+Plus Agreement for 45,000 miles at $750 and told me it included tire protection and car rental allowance. I called the next day and asked them why the blanks weren't filled out in these agreements and they said computer error and I would get the contracts in 30 days. Next I took the car on a trip and discovered I didn't have Maintence Plus when I had a flat tire! The out-of-town Nissan dealer told me confidentially I had been screwed on these agreements. Now the GM/Managing Partner where I bought the car won't return my phone calls and I have contact Nissan Consummer Affairs. I haven't bought a new car in 10 years. I love this car BUT I hate all this hassle and lying. Why would they do this?
My husband wanted to buy a Nissan next year but now ............. Any ideas on what I do next. We are retired, mature and I guess stupid.

You probably can cancel the extended warranties by sending the dealer a letter. But first you may want to call your local consumer protection office and see what advice they can give you.
And please visit Dealer Ratings and Reviews and tell the world about your dealer.

I am also looking for an extended warranty. Just bought my 2009 Altima 2.5 SL with lots of bells and whistles. I was looking at the Nissan Security Plus Gold Preferred Plan - they wanted $1850 for 84month/100,000miles w/$50.00 Ded. Sounds like this is way to much to be spending. What did you use for ammunition to get the price down?
Has anyone else gotten this warranty for a lower price? Where did you get it? I assume I can do all this via Fax, Phone, and Fed-Ex. I'm in Calif, so I'd even take a drive to a surrounding state if the price was substantually lower.
