Owning a Nissan Leaf Electric Vehicle (EV) has many benefits in today’s world. These range from saving on gas to federal tax incentives and helping the environment by choosing a green car. When your Nissan Leaf’s factory warranty expires we recommend investing in an extended warranty or Vehicle Service Contract which means the same thing with Chaiz. We will look at the Nissan Leaf extended warranty cost of a 2017 Nissan Leaf, to get an idea of the cost of Chaiz warranties.

We will also conduct a Nissan Leaf review of a 2022 model, to see what the latest benefits are of owning this car. Many people are going green these days and choosing EVs or Hybrid Vehicles as there are fewer emissions and many other benefits.

What Coverage Does a Nissan Leaf Factory Warranty Offer?

When you purchase a new Nissan Leaf, it comes with a standard factory warranty. This offers bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage (exclusionary coverage)  for the car for  3 years or 36, 000 miles, whichever comes first. The car also comes with a 5 year or 60, 000 miles powertrain warranty. When your factory warranty is due to expire, you can invest in an extended warranty.

The Three Type of Nissan Leaf Extended Warranties on Chaiz

There are three types of extended warranties offered on Chaiz. These are known as the first type- the bumper-to-bumper warranty, the powertrain plus warranty and the powertrain warranty.

A Bumper-to-bumper car warranty is the most comprehensive coverage and the most expensive option. It covers most of the important components of your car between the front and rear bumpers.  

Powertrain plus coverage is slightly less comprehensive and slightly cheaper.

Powertrain coverage is the least comprehensive coverage option but also the most affordable.

Simply input your Nissan Leaf’s details onto our search tool and the top warranties will appear offered to you by third-party warranty providers. The Nissan Leaf extended warranty cost varies on Chaiz according to warranty type. A 2017 Nissan Leaf with 60, 000 miles on the odometer brings up the following warranties:

A bumper-to-bumper extended warranty/ exclusionary coverage will cost around $50.

A powertrain plus extended warranty will cost around $37.

A powertrain extended warranty will cost $35.

These warranties are very affordable and worth investing in as your warranty will cover repair costs from a mechanical breakdown, and you can save thousands here.

There are Sometimes Additional Perks Offered by Chaiz Warranties

Some warranty plans offered by Chaiz have additional perks. These include: 24/7 roadside assistance, a tire changing service as well as fuel delivery. They also sometimes offer trip interruption which means if your car breaks down further than 100 miles away from your house, your warranty will cover your accommodation fees. These additional perks are a bonus when you’re out on the road.

Nissan Leaf Review

We would like to do a Nissan Leaf review of the 2022 Nissan Leaf to get an idea of what the benefits are attached with buying this EV. The Nissan Leaf is a fully electric car and doesn’t need gas. It gets its energy from the electric engine in-between its front wheels. It’s a lithium-ion battery. Charging is simple, you just plug in at a charging station.

Due to not using gas, there is no tailpipe and thus zero emissions. The Nissan leaf doesn’t have an internal combustion engine, so you don’t need to change oil which lowers maintenance costs. The overall maintenance costs are cheaper. The average cost of repairs and maintenance on a Nissan Leaf is $748. That is quite high and why we recommend investing in a Chaiz extended warranty.

Nissan Leaf Cost Savings

When you buy a Nissan Leaf you may qualify for Federal Tax Incentives of up to $7, 500 depending on your personal tax for buying an EV. You will also save a lot of money on gas or diesel as your EV won’t need this fuel to power the car.

Choosing an EV is Wise Choice

There are clearly many benefits to owning a Nissan Leaf EV. You are doing the environment a favor as your car won’t have emissions. Your maintenance costs will be lower due to the electric components of your car too.

Buying A Nissan Leaf Extended Warranty on Chaiz is a Wise Idea

If your factory warranty has expired, buying a Chaiz warranty is quick and easy. Drive with peace of mind knowing your EV is covered in case it breaks down and save thousands on repair bills.  You can also sometimes benefit from the additional perks that some of our warranties offer.
