Hi gang: not sure if this is the right place to put this query, but I'm wondering what other forumites might know about QQ extended warranties?

Our QQ was 3 years old last July, and so we took out a 12-month Nissan 'manufacturer' warranty, I think the cost was pretty reasonable but can't now remember.

Today we've receieved advance notification from Nissan that the warranty expires in two months' time and if we would like to renew it automatically from its expiry date, the cost will be ú399.90p, payable in 10 monthly interest free deirect debit installments.

That sounds OK to us. What we can't figure out (because of old age and amnesia) is if the warranty cover includes any kind of breakdown cover (Nissan Assist?) though we think it'd be surprising if it did, at that price.

Our other query is: what experience have fellow forumites had of other extended warranty providers? Are there any worth recommending?

I think, repeat think, the warranty is only valid if serviced by Nissan main dealer, which includes free RAC.

I've been extending my warranty each year for my 2012 QQ and is serviced each year by my Nissan dealership.  There is probably cheaper options out there, but is it worth the hassle?  
By the way, I have had no problems with the car in nearly 7yrs of local commute motoring.  Its an insurance policy of sorts as sods law says that the day I decide to not extend my warranty for 2020, the engine will probably blow up.

Thanks Proff and Doug: much appreciated.

We've received an extended warranty quote from MotorEasy, ú317 for 12 months compared to Nissan's ú399. That warranty also claims to cover 'wear and tear'-- pretty unusual, methinks -- and is probably best teamed with annual servicing from a MotorEasy appointed garage. Our son has his Fiat looked after via ME bookings; he likes the free collection and return of the car to his home address, and the fact that he got a main dealer service for less than would've been the case had he booked the car in himself.

That said, we're very much of Doug's way of thinking -- especially if it's the case, as Pro7het has mentioned -- that RAC cover is included in the Nissan warranty price.

As Doug says, cheaper options save money, but we've never yet been able to put a price on peace of mind. Our main dealer is an absolute delight, and so we're happy enough with the idea of having the QQ serviced by it as part of the warranty's T&Cs.

Thanks again.

it seems to me that modern cars are so complex in the computer systems , only the main dealers will have the equipment to sort them out.Even main dealers can have trouble at times , I had a BMW that our local dealer had trouble with , one day it actually produced the fault local to the garage,{the gps screen going bright red and other faults] they spend 2 hours with it connected to a boffin in head office.
You can not really expect a garage dealing with all makes to be so well equipped for all the makes they see.
An independent specialising in one make can be a good half way house
