Is your manufacturer’s original warranty expiring or did you just buy a used Nissan? Consider purchasing a Nissan Extended Warranty or a vehicle protection plan from Autopom.
Like all of the Japanese vehicle manufacturers, Nissan enjoys a fairly solid reputation for reliability. In fact, the average Nissan can be driven about 195,000 miles before it loses all of its value. That is a lot of miles! So if you’ve decided to buy a new or used Nissan, you have probably made a good decision. That does not mean, however, that you should not consider a Nissan Extended Warranty or a vehicle protection plan from Autopom.
Nissans are far from perfect when it comes to reliability. According to the J.D. Power 2014 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study (which examines problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of three-year-old vehicles), Nissans experienced 142 problems per 100 vehicles, which is nine problems more than the industry average of 133. That means that currently, in spite of the notion that Nissans are reliable, they are actually slightly less reliable than the average vehicle! Be sure to note that those 142 problems are within the first three years, when things really should not be going wrong.
Can you imagine what you might run into after three years, which is also when the manufacturer warranty has almost certainly run out? This is where a Nissan Extended Warranty or a vehicle protection plan from Autopom could really come in handy, giving you peace of mind and saving you money! Of course, different years and models from Nissan can have greatly different degrees of reliability, so be sure to research your specific Nissan to ensure you make the right decision for you and your budget.
For example, you will unquestionably want to consider extended protection if you own or are about to buy a 2013 Nissan Altima. According to www.carcomplaints.com:
“The 2013 Nissan Altima is showing multiple early problem trends, prompting us to give it our ‘beware of this clunker’ badge.
Owners are complaining about a whining noise from the power steering pump and a concerning amount vibration related to the CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). Not to mention constant windshield problems that appear to be the result of poor design.”
