Nissan Warranty Information
One important benefit of buying a new vehicle is warranty coverage. Though Nissan vehicles are known for being valuable and dependable, there’s still no beating the extra peace-of-mind bestowed by a warranty.
Since consumers these days keep their vehicles for an average of seven years (and take an average of 69 months to pay for them), it’s important to inquire how much of that time will be covered by warranty. The importance grows due to the fact that, as much as we love the multitude of technological and safety advancements present in modern cars, the more sophisticated build complexity has resulted in the unfortunate side-effect of more expensive repairs.
Duration of New Vehicle Limited Nissan Warranty Coverage
Nissan fits every new vehicle with 3-years/36,000 miles of basic warranty coverage. In addition, each comes with powertrain coverage lasting for 5-years/60,000 miles.
If you spring for a Nissan Leaf, you’ll also get a 5-year/60,000-miles electric powertrain warranty, along with 96-months/100,000 miles of coverage on its lithium-ion battery pack. This is in addition to the New Vehicle Limited Nissan Warranty described above.
Roadside Assistance coverage lasts for 3-years/36,000 miles. Regarding emissions, the Nissan catalytic converter and engine control module warranties last for 8-years/80,000 miles.
Extended warranty options are available for coverage beyond the standard warranty periods.
What’s covered by the New Vehicle Limited Nissan Warranty?
The New Vehicle Limited Nissan Warranty promises that buyers will not be charged for the repairs of defects in the materials or workmanship of all parts and components of each new Nissan vehicle. Basically, things that are the fault of the automaker will be covered. As with most warranties, maintenance needed for normal wear and tear, or damage due to driver neglect/accidents, is not covered.
