Hey everyone, just some news to share today. I got a letter from Nissan corp in the mail today in regards to a "Warranty Extension Notification"
Here's the gist of it:
Nissan previously extended your vehicle's New Vehicle Limited Warranty as it applies to the radiator assembly and its component parts from 3 years/36,000 miles to 8 years/80,000 miles, whichever comes first.
What follows is some information regarding the SMOD problem some 2nd gen Xs with automatic transmission develop...
Nissan is pleased to announce an additional extension of the coverage of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty on the radiator assembly, subject to certain customer co-pays that vary with age/mileage above 8 years/80,000 miles, to 10 years/100,000 miles (whichever occurs first). This extension covers the radiator and component parts, and includes damage, repairs, replacement and related towing resulting from this issue.
With the additional extention, the following warranty coverage will now apply:
-Up to 8 years/80,000 miles, whichever comes first, extended warranty coverage applies with no customer co-pay
-After 8 years/80,000 miles, whichever comes first, up to 9 years/90,000 miles, whichever comes first, extended warranty coverage applies with customer co-pay in the amount of $2,500.
-After 9 years/90,000 miles, whichever comes first, up to 10 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first, extended warranty coverage applies with customer co-pay in the amount of $3,000.
So my Xterra is already well beyond the mileage for this to apply to, but anyone else out there worried about the Strawberry Milkshake of Death with less than 100,000 miles on your vehicle now have some factory protection even if it's not completely covered.
my 2007 tranny started slipping 3 weeks ago,took it to the dealer and yup,milkshake! they took here right in gave me a rentel, and in 3 day`s had a brand new tranny and radiator. no co-pay with 68,000miles.
I was so happy with the dealer i traded it for a new 2012 prox.i got a killer deal on .! nice !!!
