Elite maintenance plan.
We got the JX AWD yesterday and we ended up taking the Elite maintenance plan (zero deductible) offered by the finance gal. We have a 39 month 15K/year lease, so she offered a 45,000 mile plan for ALL the scheduled maintenance in the owner's maintenance booklets (basically every 3750 miles). She showed an actual cost of 2246 from their own service department charges for each of the maintenance. Those figures were true, compared to my experience with my two G35 vehicles since 2003. We got it for 50% off at 1123. I think it was a pretty decent deal to get dealer servicing and it's good at any Infiniti dealer in the US, where most would offer a loaner +/1 car wash at each service.
Anyone else purchase the plan or have thoughts about it?
There was a discussion about the extended warranty.
Does this mean other people can buy the elite maintenance plan from your dealer?
I'll find out what my dealer is offering when I pick up the JX this week.
Extended warranty and prepaid maintenance are 2 different products. Our lease is fully covered under standard warranty, but we still have to do maintenance, so this maintenance plan seemed like a good deal. We'll actually probably use it to service at another dealer closer by. There are some dealers that sell both online, our deal was only good at time of purchase from Infiniti of Oakland (CA). That price was what I'd calculated I would spend at an indepedent repair shop, but now I get Infiniti service with loaners, etc.
Hey JX35MD.. Do you have a copy of the list for which she calculated 2246?
Anyone else buy these plans and how much did you pay for it? I was interested but my dealer wouldn't come down below 2000.
Hey JX35MD - Here are the rates I got from an online website (I think its a dealer in Florida).
Premium - 1399
Elite 1 - 939
Elite 2 - 669
Can anyone describe the Premium, Elite 1, and Elite 2 offerings?
I don't know all the details of the different plans, but on our contract there are selections for $0, $50, $100 deductible and we have the zero. That may be the 3 levels you are quoting. It's also not the time period, but miles that matter more when looking at a maintenance plan as most folks go based on mileage not how many months they've had their car. I don't have a printout of their standard service pricing, but she showed me all the expected services and prices on her computer screen and they were 49 or 59 for a 3750 mile oil change, about 100 for the 7500 mile oil change and and tire rotation and inspections, about 499 for a 15000 or 45000 mile intermediate service, and 699 for a 30000 mile major. All of those added up to 2246 over 45000 miles.

He charges about 65% of dealer charge, but he doesn't have a loaner or shuttle and does not wash the car. Many real picky owners over at the G35 forums say that they always demand NO car wash, but I've never had any problems when getting it washed at the dealer with a service or warranty repair.
My local dealer now charges something like $10 or $15 for fuel every time you get a loaner. It used to be free loaner and return it with the same amount of fuel, but many probably abused that. Now they charge that upfront and you return it was whatever amount of fuel you want. I had to send them out to fuel up the car once when they tried to give me a loaner with the low fuel warning flashing on the info screen.
Check page 4 & 5 from this link - this might be slightly older.

The figures I got were for the maintainence as shown in the link I provided.
My local dealer said he'll beat those rates by $50.
* What I got from the online quote. Let us know if someone finds a lower rate somewhere.
