Hey guys, I just bought an 06 LE yesterday (which is awesome) but I am a little ticked off right now. I just read through the Extended Warranty thread and it appears that I got SCREWED on the warranty. I was offered 5/75k for $2340 through MPP. When I inquired about the Nissan extended warranty I was told that it was $40 more and not quite as good. The thing is, I have the VPP purchase plan and I am entitled to a discount on the warranty. The dealer told me that $2380 was my DISCOUNTED rate through Nissan!! Is there any way to confirm what Nissan charges for their extended warranties? I need to find some hard evidence for when I go and insert my size 12's up this dealers backside!!

Other than that, I love the Armada and look forward to talking with you all.

Thanks,

Jason

I'd call and see if you can get a quote from another dealer. In TX at least I believe there is a 72 hour period where you can change your mind so perhaps you can get your money back. I definitely think you were screwed by the dealer though.

Pardon my ignorance on this, but what do MPP and VPP stand for in your post?

I have the Nissan extended coverage myself, but don't recall exactly what those abbreviations mean.

For reference... I bought the longest Nissan coverage with no deductible (7yr/100k) and paid just over $2400 upfront cost for it.

The only reason I was willing to pay that, was because the finance mgr offered me another half-percent off my loan rate if I bought it. I calculated the actual cost based on that half-percent savings and I end up paying about $850 for the extra coverage over the life of the loan.

We paid $1250 for 7/75 Nissan Gold $50 deductible extended warranty. We also qualify for the VPP program, got our 06 LE for about $1500 under invoice, plus we got the rebate.

Sorry about all of the acronyms. VPP is a discount purchase plan through Nissan. I am eligible for this through my employer. MPP is the aftermarket warranty that I bought.

*Update: I called the dealer yesterday and had a brief discussion with the finance manger. He agreed to cancel my MPP warranty purchase. I still need to purchase some sort of extended warranty so I will go through the Extended Warranty thread to see what you all have been able to buy.

Thanks

Good luck. Glad to see the manager stepped up. I don't have one, nor do I want one. ;)

I got ripped off on a 3rd party extended warranty a few years ago and I tend to shy away from them now, I will take my chances with the standard one.

I negotiated mine with the Finance Manager. She started out at 1895...wound up paying 1100 for 7yr / 100000 mile / 100 deductible. I think they called it the "Platinum" package.
Unfortunately, they get commission on what the car business calls "the back end". The more $ gross they negotiate, the greater the commission. Sometimes the commissions are step-graduated...so the more you negotiate, the higher the percentage commisssion for the finance manager. With that...many of them put their own price on it. If you balk at the exorbitant price...they will come down or it will piss them off and they will feel offended that you turned it down...might sulk...or may even try to make you feel like a dumbschizen! I've seen it many times. The same goes for the fluffy interior/exterior protection package they try to sell you.
Caveat Emptor!
