What Types of Warranties Does Nissan Offer on Its Vehicles?

Nissan offers both standard and extended warranties for new cars as of 2015. Nissan models manufactured between 2003 and 2010 and equipped with continuously variable transmission coverage have a limited 10-year or 120,000 mile warranty as well.

Nissan offers a standard 36-month or 36,000-mile limited warranty. The factory warranty covers all damages to almost all the parts of the vehicle. The warranty excludes components, such as brake pads, that wear out quickly. Nissan also offers a five-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on new vehicles. This warranty offers protection for various parts including the engine, transmission system and drive axle.

Nissan's extended warranty plans provide additional protection for an extra charge. The exact cost of the extended warranty plan depends on the car and the specific plan. Nissan's extended warranties also extend the lifespan of the basic warranty plans.

Nissan’s Security Plus extended protection plans provide mechanical protection for up to eight years or 120,000 miles. Trained technicians at Nissan dealerships nationwide repair new or used Nissan cars for owners who have this plan. The prepaid maintenance plans provide maintenance services at Nissan dealerships nationwide for new and used vehicles.

Nissan certified vehicles that are six years old or newer with less than 80,000 miles qualify for an 84-month or 100,000-mile limited warranty. The warranty begins from the car’s original in-service date.
