With all the attention both Ford and Ram Truck are getting lately for their new entries into the full-size van market (Ford with the all-new 2015 Transit and Ram Truck with the new-for-2014 ProMaster, Nissan has had a rough time reminding customers that it has full-size and compact vans it's pretty proud of.
One way Nissan is getting attention is in the most fundamental way fleet buyers understand — with durability and cost. To further prove the point that the Nissan vans are built tough and strong enough to take fleet abuse, Nissan has extended its commercial van warranty to five-year/100,000-mile (whichever comes first) bumper-to-bumper coverage for all 2014 and newer models.
The push to extend the coverage came because of the collected stories and data Nissan has built regarding vehicles being used in the real world. Some NV vans have collected more than 550,000 miles with only an alternator swap for repairs at the 382,000-mile mark. Whether this is enough to lure other small businesses or larger fleet buyers to the full-size NV or the new NV200 will be difficult to judge in this slow-growing segment. For now, Nissan is saying this is the best warranty in the commercial van segment.
