posticon My extended warranty just expired.


My extended warranty on my T-30 has just expired.
Heres the damage to Nissan.
1. front lower control arms replaced.
2. Rear brake light switch (replaced 2 times)
3. Air conditioning fan motor - they became very noisy!!! - replaced once on original warranty, and once again 1 day before the extended warranty expired. - I'm told getting the A/C fan unit replaced is an expensive job to do????

Re: My extended warranty just expired.


Interesting, but what are you saying?

Is that just a list of things fixed under the extended warranty?

Warranty work does not cost the Dealer for parts and it is a source of labour time income from the Manufacturer. They love it.

Point 3 was that the a/c fan motor was replaced twice under warranty. Even replaced one day before warranty expiry - Excellent value for you.

Yes, it was no expense for the Dealer as the Manufacturer paid him for the warranty work.

I may have missed the point but it seems you are well ahead.

Re:


Ahh the old A/C fan motor noise. It's actually just the bearing in the fan unit, of course you have to buy the whole fan unit as the bearing is not sold separately - unless of course you disassemble it and go to a bearing shop for a replacement. Pretty involved job though.

But hey sounds like money well spent on the warranty then, fingers crossed your exy now gives many more years of troublefree service emoticon

Re: My extended warranty just expired.


Mine just expired (6 yrs Dec 2013)

Items replaced under new car warranty:
- CVT Transmission at 33,000kms (new one making same noises but they refused any further action; car still drives great so perhaps no problem)
- Front splines greased and tightened.

Items replaced under extended warranty:
- Both fuel senders "out of spec" (Fuel gauge top bars not working)
- CVT Shifter mechanism (faulty microswitch - the couldn't get out of Park issue)

I'd be concerned about the noise if they replaced a tranny @ 33,000km for the same noise previously

Re: My extended warranty just expired.


I'm resigned to the fact that the noise is and was probably originally just backlash in diff etc.

Car drives great and no noise even when towing etc so nothing "Fatal" in my opinion (hoping).

Noise only happens when there is no drive or retard ie throttle is 'feathered' so backlash is usually the reason for some noises in this situation and could be argued is normal.

If it was a bearing noise then that is a different matter.

Re:


I bought Extra Time / Extra Distance to get to 150,000km/5 years.

At 106,000kms - my car went into limp mode on the way back to Canberra. Culprit: EGR valve sensor. I got a hire car Kluger for 5 days (as i was more than 100kms from home), then a Corolla after 5 days from Nissan dealership where it was towed to (Goulburn) and got the whole EGR replaced (as the sensor is emded in the EGR).

Then at 110,00km - injector failure as advised by my mechanic. Wrong! One of the valves has to be replaced.. and its not a serviceable part... yep: ENGINE BLOCK AND CYLINDER HEADS are being replaced with a brand new one! I was also given a Petrol CVT T31 to use while its off the road (so far 3 weeks, will be probably another 4-6 weeks before the engine comes in from Japan). Nissan is covering all servicing costs on the complimentary vehicle as well.

Did you have to fight for that with Nissan Australia or everything run smoothly with the warranty claim?

Re:


at this point, i haven't had to fight them.

Today they requested from my local dealership (where the car is at) for a copy of my logbook. Don't think there'll be too many problems, considering 9 of 11 services were by the dealer. Of the other 2, 1 of them was the service where they identified the injector problem, and the previous 100,000km one was just a simple oil change really which I got done while the clutch was being replaced.

but... you never know! I'm sure once they see the last 2 were not-dealer ones, their tune may change.

Re:


Ha. Another woe to add:
my car was broken into when I put it in for servicing at the dealership (long story... but essentially dealer forgot to put my car into storage for the weekend, ACT police called me on Sunday, lots and lots of stuff stolen)...

Nissan requested the logbook today - looks like it was stolen with everything else in the glovebox.
