Frequently Asked Questions

When does the warranty on my Nissan begin?

The warranty period begins on the date the vehicle is delivered to the first retail buyer or put into use, whichever comes first.

No, there is no deductible for warranty repairs.

Is towing covered?

If your vehicle is inoperative due to failure of a warranted part, towing service to the nearest authorized Nissan dealer is reimbursable for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Is rental car reimbursement covered?

No. However, rental car reimbursement is a benefit of most of the Security+Plus Service Agreement plans.

Who will determine if the repair on my vehicle is covered?

Take your vehicle to the nearest Nissan dealer, like Brown's Dulles Nissan. Once we've diagnosed the problem, you will be advised whether the repair is covered. We are conveniently located in Sterling, VA.

Will I be reimbursed for a warranty repair not done at an authorized dealer?

Your Nissan warranty generally requires that you take your Nissan to an authorized Nissan dealer. However, contact Nissan Consumer Affairs at (800) NISSAN-1 between 8:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m., Eastern/Central/Pacific Time, Monday through Friday, to find out if, in your particular situation, the cost of repair is eligible for reimbursement.

Are scheduled maintenance services covered by warranty?

No. You are responsible for properly using, maintaining, and caring for your Nissan as outlined in your owner's manual and your Nissan Service and Maintenance Guide. Keep copies of all maintenance records and receipts for potential review by Nissan. Failure to do so could result in the denial of warranty coverage.

Evidence that required maintenance has been performed in connection with related warranty repairs should be kept as proof of such service. You can use our online Service Record Manager to help you keep track of routine maintenance, but keep copies of all maintenance receipts and records. There is also a convenient maintenance log in your Nissan Service and Maintenance Guide.

We also keep vehicle history on service appointments at our Nissan dealership, which can be accessed via our online service scheduler. To learn more, contact our Service center at (855) 875-9517.

Can I modify my vehicle or add accessories not authorized by Nissan?

Your Nissan New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover repairs for damage or conditions which are determined to be due to the installation or use of non-Genuine Nissan Accessories available at the time you order or purchase your new Nissan, as well as after purchase from our Nissan dealership.

How often do I take my Nissan for service?

Your Nissan's Service & Maintenance Guide is designed to help you make sure your vehicle receives necessary and timely maintenance. Visit Manuals & Guides to find the right information for your model and year. Utilize our online service scheduler for your next appointment at our Nissan Service Center.
