Nissan New Car Warranty
Nobody wants to think about warranty coverage when shopping for a new car, but you want to feel reassured that should something go wrong, you won’t be the one footing over the bill. Warranty coverage can vary quite a lot between automakers, and even between models. You’ll also find that there are a few different warranties applied to every model. Each vehicle receives a basic warranty, a powertrain warranty, corrosion coverage, federal emissions performance, defect and long-term defect and seat belt coverage.
Naturally, these are all things that most car owners will hope last. Nissan offers one basic coverage policy for all models except for the Nissan Titan, Nissan Leaf and Nissan commercial vehicles, which receive their own, separate terms. The basic coverage, which covers any repairs necessary due to manufacturer defects in materials or workmanship, lasts for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. Your powertrain coverage which many consider the most important, lasts for 60 months or 60,000 miles.
Your basic warranty is the one that covers any manufacturer defects or recalls. You want to know that if something went wrong during its production, you aren’t the one who will pay for it. You’ll also be happy to know that if you need to be towed for any reason that is covered under warranty, you won’t foot the bill for that just so long as you have your vehicle taken to an authorized Nissan dealership.
Nobody will accuse you of driving a rust bucket, as Nissan is so confident in its manufacturing process that your model is covered for 60 months, with no mileage limitations. No additional protection is needed. This coverage states that any sheet metal provided by Nissan will not corrode and rust through. If it does, your authorized Nissan dealership will replace the piece at no charge to you.
What is your powertrain? The engine, transmission, transaxle and drivetrain are all covered, so you can say the basic meat and bones of your vehicle. If anything goes here, you won’t be getting far, which is why you need it covered. The Nissan powertrain warranty lasts for 60 months or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. Older models may also have extended warranties on the CVT.

The Nissan Warranty provides plenty of reassurance, ensuring you’ll be protected against manufacturer defects, powertrain failure and exterior rust – but what if it’s just not enough?
