I got the impression that the extended warranty program is provided by Nissan or at least affiliated with Nissan so I don't understand why Nissan would have two sets of rules for warranty repair. If anything I would think a customer paying for an extended warranty would get preferential treatment.
I dont understand either...Im not sure how thats set up. is it 3rd party acting on nissans behalf or is it actually just a different part of the nissan warranty division?
regardless im just sayings there must be different standards as ive never heard of anyone ever denied for that criteria alone on their original. go look at the transmission registry you see people check in with the legitimate semi common solenoid issue or the line pressure or the shift fork all seeing the symptoms getting only half their gears in limp mode and they get swapped. Nissan has been really good about this post 2008 LC drama. the variable in this case seems to be the extended warranty and the amount of usage of the car... you take that away and he is no different than all those cases approved. even less so as some of those approvals were on tuned cars or cars with more mods than him
