I always buy the factory extended warrantees because they seem to be less headaches. I think you can still get yours from Nissan as long as you have the original 36k in force. Call as many dealers as you can as price will vary greatly from one place to next. Go for highest mileage with short time and save even more!

You can try checking out epinions.com. They provide reviews from consumers on almost anything, as long as someone writes about them. When I was considering switching to Geico (now that they insure NJ), I was reading about people's reviews and found it very helpful.

If you don't mind posting. How much were the dealerships charging in comparison, like for the 5yr/100K?

Years ago, I purchased a third party warranty for my Ford Explorer and it was the worst decision I ever made when it comes to purchasing a vehicle. It was very specific on what it did and did not cover (mostly didn't cover)...and it was not there for me when I needed work done. If you go the third party route, ask lots of questions and be sure to read the documentation.

Good luck:)

I had Warranty Direct on my Jaguar.
http://www.warrantydirect.com/

They have been around forever.
Their warranty is as good as the factory warranty.
It was transferrable (For a small fee...$25?.....which is valuable if you sell to a private party)
Of course, they do not double warranty.
So, for instance, if you buy a 5/60 from them and you A/C goes out after your factory warranty runs out (3/36) but before your extended warranty runs out, it is covered.
But your drivetrain would not be covered at the same time.
Why?
Because the factory warranty would cover the drivetrain for 5/60.


So just understand what you are buying.

Some people say that dealers don't like working with 3rd party warranty.
That's a bunch of hooey.
The big advantage of working with a 3rd party is that the dealer gets paid when the job is done. (Credit card over the phone)
Ask them how long they wait for Nissan to pay them.

I bot the Nissan extended warranty this time because I offered them a price and they took it.

I would recommend Waranty Direct.

I can't comment on Auto Advantage.
IMO, a company's history is every bit as important as there coverage/price.

You can buy Nissan extended warranty as long as you have the original factory warranty in force. I got a 7 year/100K for $1,400 @ $0 Deductible so this 3rd party contract seems to be high. If you expect to drive a lot, get 5 year 100k miles which is much cheaper. Take the 3rd party price qoutes (and other dealer qoutes) to several dealers. You will be surprised at the kind of deal they would be willing to make in order to sell you the warranty!
