Tan Chong Insurance Business Stream (TCIBS), the insurance division of Tan Chong Motor Holdings, has announced the launch of an extended warranty programme for Nissan owners, specifically for Almera, Serena S-Hybrid and T32 X-Trail owners.

The TC Warranty Plus programme offers a warranty extension to the standard three-year warranty for Nissan owners, and comes into effect after the original manufacturer’s warranty period of three years or 100,000 km (whichever comes first) runs out.

There are three packages available under the programme, the first being an EW 150 package. This consists of an additional two years or 50,000 km of coverage, identical to the original manufacturer’s warranty.

Next is an EW 200 package, which provides an additional four years or 100,000 km on top of the original warranty. Here, the fourth and fifth year coverage is identical to the original manufacturer’s warranty, while the sixth and seventh year provides warranty on three components (engine, transmission and steering system).

The third is the EW 25 package, which is applicable for vehicles less than five years old where the warranty has lapsed or voided. Depending on that choses, the package provides an additional one year/25,000 km or two years/50,000 km (whichever comes first, for all the packages) or coverage for three components (engine, transmission and steering system).

Prices range from as low as RM488 right up to RM2,988 for an EW 200 package available for the Serena and X-Trail.

The TC Warranty Plus programme comes after the introduction of the seven-year, unlimited mileage warranty for new Nissan and Infiniti models sold as of January 1, 2017, and provides owners with vehicles purchased before then to enjoy peace of mind motoring.

There’s an early bird promotion for these packages, and those who sign up before October 31 will receive a free petrol engine refresh kit.
