New Car -- extended powertrain warranty ?

Seven days ago I purchased a 2013 Nissan Altima in United States with 60 miles on it and a 5 year manufacturers powertrain warranty.

What company provides the cheapest 5 year EXTENDED powertrain warranty so I can have a 10 year total warranty with $500 deductible ?

My first (deleted) comment was lacking in detail.

I do not live in USA, but I researched the topic and found that easycare have a limited extended powertrain warranty as well as more comprehensive coverage.


I also considered that cheapest may not be suitable or sufficient coverage.
This is why the different plans should be compared.

Also an extended powertrain warranty may not be cost efficient if the car is not used for high mileage business use that enables tax deductions on such costs.
I recommend "NONE" because it is almost impossible to get information on the reliability of any company. Their claims procedure is almost always by mail. There are a number of warrenty scams operating.

Since you are the original owner and know the cars history, the second warranty is a waste of money if you follow the recommended maintenance schedule.  If it is a lemon you will know within 5 years and can get rid of it.

Most modern cars will go 200,000 miles without powertrain problems, again assuming proper timely maintenance.

I've done 150k to 300k miles on over a dozen cars and the powertrain has never went out.  I'd take the money and put in the bank and use it for something that may actually break

Your question asks:

" What company provides the cheapest 5 year EXTENDED powertrain warranty so I can have a 10 year total warranty with $500 deductible ? "

My answer is now repeated with no link, so please google their service.

They offer many different plans that may suit your needs.
You need to decide which plan may or may not be of economical advantage to your particular circumstances.


Unless you operate the car for business ( with tax deductions ) an extended warranty is pointless.

I must agree with dhsindy. In General extended warranties are a money maker for the seller.  It is assumed that you will either sell the product or give it up in some way before the warranty is needed.  Generally, most extended warranties are never used.
