It seems that a third-party warranty company "Warrantywise" are advertising in motorway service areas, getting people to worry about the cost of a head gasket repair.

And they're using a photo of a Nissan Leaf in the advert.

So I did a bit of searching, and I found this, and this., and who wouldn't want a chrome tip for your Nissan Leaf's exhaust pipe?

Roll right on up and get your snake oil.

I'm pretty sure warranty wise don't cover electric cars....maybe this all changed with this poster!

I thought the same so inquired online and found they do. Now they won't leave me alone. Does seems a bizarre choice to marry this picture with the head gasket strapline.

As I was stood at the Urinal I was greeted with the question "have you got a leaky gasket" fortunately the next poster had a solution of an oh so discreet incontinence pad. If only I had somewhere to hang my hat.

They do, and the image used from the poster is from their electric car page. Warrantywise EV warranty | Warrantywise

That means the gaffe is even less excusable, as someone at that company must have approved that ad.
well i'm impressed!

phone warranty companies a lot in work to get told Sorry Sir, Its not covered! one company had a list of cars they don't cover which I found quite amusing, as they will happily sell to customers who's cars are on the list!

My C Zero came a three month warranty, and I'm being pestered to renew it. But as it's tailored to ICE cars, I won't. If it covered the traction battery I'd consider it for a while, but not even the 12 volt battery in covered.

If anyone else with an Amazon account wants to review the chrome tip, fill yer boots.
