Should I Buy An Extended Warranty?


Whether you’re shopping for a new Nissan Altima or a gently-used Nissan model, you have the option to purchase an extended warranty. However, many Palmetto Bay car buyers wonder “Should I buy an extended warranty?” and “Are extended warranties worth it?” In short, if you plan to own your car for an extended period of time, then an extended warranty may be worth the additional cost. Learn more about how extended warranties work and see if they’re the right choice for your vehicle with HGreg Nissan Kendall. 

What Is Extended Warranty Coverage? 

South Miami drivers can opt for an extended warranty when they are financing a used or new Nissan model. An extended warranty provides additional maintenance coverage once the factory warranty on your vehicle has expired. Each extended warranty plan varies, but if your plan allows it, you can add extra services like towing or roadside assistance. An extended warranty is like an additional safety net. If a major repair pops up after your powertrain warranty has ended, your extended warranty will help cover the repair costs. Extended warranties are worth it if you want to avoid paying for potentially costly repairs. 

New & Used Vehicle Extended Warranties

You can get an extended warranty when you buy a new or used vehicle, but they will work differently depending on the condition of the car. Whether you plan to buy a new Nissan or a used one, read our extended warranty tips below:

New Vehicles

Consider how long you plan to keep your new vehicle before you agree to an extended warranty. If you plan on getting a new car in 10 years or less, then an extended warranty may not be the best option for you. Newer Nissan models are extremely reliable and last for many years without major part failure. However, if you do plan on keeping your vehicle for over 10 years, then an extended warranty is worth it. 

Used Vehicles

If you decide to purchase a used vehicle, you will want to have it inspected before you buy it. Even though Nissan vehicles are very reliable, it may not have been maintained as well as it should have been. After you have a Homestead Nissan technician inspect your preferred used model, review their report and discuss with them the possibility of a major part failure. If the vehicle is in good health, but may have some trouble after a few years, an extended warranty may be worthwhile. Similarly to new vehicles, how long you plan to own the car is also a factor you should consider. In general, getting an extended warranty on a used Nissan model is encouraged so you’re protected from expensive repair costs if they occur.
