Nissan does an excellent job of covering their drivers with a healthy warranty. For 3 years and 36,000 miles you have the New Car Limited warranty, and for 5 years and 60,000 miles you have the Powertrain Warranty. While that coverage is great, what options do you have if you want more coverage?
Boardwalk Nissan highly recommends purchasing an Extended Service Contract for your new Nissan if:
- Your financing term is longer than the manufacturers warranty
- You plan to keep the car for longer than the manufacturers warranty
- You want the best resale value for your Nissan
Why do we recommend an Extended Service Contract in those instances? Boardwalk Nissan's Finance Team has great insight into why an Extended Service Contract makes sense for you. If your financing term is longer than the new car warranty, you might be in a tough spot in case of an unexpected repair. Making a car payment and dealing with a repair cost in the same month can get very expensive!
Also, due to the slow economy, many people are keeping their cars after they are paid off, and saving their money. If you are keeping your car for 7 years instead of 5 years, make sure you have an Extended Service Contract to protect you against any repair costs. Keeping a car after it's paid off and saving money only makes sense if you are covered against repair costs too!
When it comes time to sell your Nissan, your Extended Service Contract is fully transferable to the new owner. Don't underestimate how important this is to the new buyer! Nothing will help you get full value for your Nissan like being able to pass your coverage on to the new owners. Extended Service Contracts cover parts, labor, diagnostics, towing, rental cars, and trip interruption.
With coverage available up to 7 years, it's important to never worry about repairs, break downs, or being without a car.
