The Nissan Cared4 extended warranty scheme has been set up to eradicate the worries of buying a used car. It really is all about peace of mind.
About knowing that only the best cars make it onto their forecourt, because only the best cars qualify to be covered by `Nissan Cared4`.
Checks carried out
All Cared4 vehicles will undergo the following before the vehicle is sold to you:
1. A 90 point vehicle condition check
2. HPI/Experian finance and provenance checks
3. VMC mileage check
You get a minimum 12 months of Nissan-supported warranty, though many younger cars will keep the balance of their initial three-year warranty programme.
Either way, you can expect cover for all components up to 75,000 miles. There’s no limit on claims under the policy up to the purchase price of the car.
So what’s covered?
Well, just about everything excluding the usual wear and tear items. What it boils down to, however, is that not only will they put right a major mechanical defect but they’ll also make sure that you get where you’re going with the minimum of inconvenience.
Also included as an additional benefit, if the vehicle is more than two years old at the time of purchase, is MOT Care which covers the cost of repairing, replacing or adjusting specific defective parts in the unlikely event that your car fails its next MOT.
Nissan Cared4 provides confidence of a 30-days/1,000 miles vehicle exchange. In the unlikely event that your vehicle has a demonstrable fault that cannot be resolved and the vehicle has covered no more than 1,000 miles from the date of purchase, and you are within 30 days of purchase then your vehicle will be replaced free of charge with a vehicle of a similar specification.
Under the Scheme
The Cared4 warranty applies to Nissan car sold through your local Nissan Cared4 dealer, provided it’s less than seven years old and has covered under 75,000 miles.
You’ll also receive free MOT tests for the duration of your ownership of the car, as well as test-failure insurance for the first one.
Your dealer will undertake these. They even promise to wash your car and provide a courtesy vehicle during scheduled services.
Nissan want you to experience how owning a used car feels like owning a new one. Cared4 provides Nissan roadside assistance, service and repair price match guarantee and a free courtesy car when required.
Summary: A comprehensive scheme offering real peace of mind. Your local dealer SLM will also offer you a price match guarantee on competitor quotes within a 10-mile radius. Plus they offer two years complimentary servicing and two years Pan-European Roadside Assistance when you purchase a Cared4 vehicle from them with 9.9% APR representative finance.
