[OT] Extended Warranty

    I was just wondering what's you guys' take/opinion on extended warranty/protection plans...

    I bought my 03' FX45 back in March and it's original warranty is up on November 29th.

    I feel more at ease if I buy one.

    Who, here... has bought them? And did you go with Infiniti's or some other plan. And, lastly... How much did you pay (please also include which plan, in terms of miles/months)

    oh, and 3rd party warranty plans... yay or nay?

    How many miles on your ride?
    Do you have service records?
    Normally, I would say not on these things. It's only an '03, & the FX seems very reliable.

    just turned 37k miles...

    today, I took my FX in for an oil change and brought up the trim issue that's a TSB, and just like that... they ordered the new ones for me... if my warranty had been expired... they (obviously) wouldn't have done so...

    I want to get a headstart on buying an extended powertrain warranty. I'm in the 60,000's on my FX and want to have enough time to research around. Has anyone purchased Extended Powertrain Warranty for their FX? If so, What kind. Any recommendations?

    if youre already expired on the warranty they're not supposed to sell you the extended. seeing that your in the 60K miles your expired at this point. But you can always check with the dealer and see if they will do it.

    Have any one check that website.. +1 with what Psiclne said.. That's why I'm not so sure about the website.. Cause anybody can just go and get their extended warranty renew even if us expired on that website..

    I will ask the dealership on monday about this too and see what they say..

    Well, notice how long ago this was originally posted? But that said, since Oct/07 I've haven't even put 13k miles on. I'm at 49,6xx miles right now. I don't drive it much.

    I extended my bumper to bumper warranty back when it was gonna expire, but my powertrain doesnt expire till sometime this fall or 70,000 mi (whichever comes first).
     
  12. For those that recently purchased an 09 FX, what type of deal were the dealerships giving you? The key here is that the warranty offered is a 7yr/100K but it's a warranty that runs concurrent to the 4yr/60K, so in effect you are paying for a 3yr/40K warranty. What type of $'s has anyone been quoted and is it worth it?

    I would definitely buy it. FX is a great car, but the earlier models just have too many small problems.

    I just bought my '07 FX from the dealer. It has 12.5K mi. on it. They offered me an extended warranty for 6 years and 100K for $2400. It seemed a bit steep since it technically only covers from the time the factory warranty expired. I've seen people get warranties on AMG Mercedes for about the same price and we all know how unreliable those cars can be. So I ended up passing on the deal.

    I think you made out pretty good on your factory warranty. :tup:
    Did it just end?
