It has been confirmed by Nissan Finance’s customer service representative that there are different grace periods for late payments for each of their locations.
According to the type of contract you have, there may be a longer grace period for a lease than a purchase agreement. In most states, there is a grace period of ten to fifteen days before the payment is due.
Late fees are not applied to your account until after the grace period (which is usually a couple of days) has expired, but interest will still accumulate on your account during this time.
It is also important to note that late fees vary from one location to another. The Nissan representative could not provide specific late fees due to a lack of account information on the customer’s account.
It was found in our research that Florida, Michigan, as well as Oregon have an average late fee of about 5% based on our findings.
Please refer to your contract for more information about grace periods and late fees, or please call Nissan Finance at (800) 456-6622 if you need more information.

Late Payment Reporting:
During the grace period, Nissan Finance will not be able to report the late payment to you due to your late payment. Moreover, Nissan Finance will not immediately report late payments to the credit bureaus at the end of the grace period, despite charging a late fee and considering them late after the grace period ends.
According to Nissan Finance customer service representatives, if an unpaid payment does not arrive thirty days after the due date, Nissan Finance will report the payment as late to the credit bureaus. When you have late payment reports on your credit report, your credit score will be damaged.
Avoiding Late Payments:
The Nissan Finance representatives also suggested that customers do not habitually take advantage of the grace period, which, in addition to offering a monthly grace period, was also offered by the company.
If you are having difficulty making payments on the due date, you may be able to change your due date. Call Nissan Finance at (800) 456-6622 and we will be happy to assist you with requesting a change in your due date.
There are a number of ways to avoid payment issues, including setting up automatic withdrawals from your checking account or savings account. Your Nissan Finance account can be linked to your bank account, so that on the due date of each month, Nissan Finance will automatically withdraw your payments from your bank account.
In the event that the payment doesn’t go through, the grace period will expire; in this case, you need to pay the debt before the grace period expires.
There are some installment loans offered by Nissan Finance that can be deferred. For more information regarding whether this service is available on your account, you may wish to contact Nissan Finance at (800) 456-6622. Payments on leases cannot be deferred by the lessors and are not allowed to be deferred.
During the time that you have deferred payments on your auto loan, the period of time you have deferred payments will be extended by the number of deferred months. Due to the fact that you have accrued additional interest on your account, you will see an increase in your total payment as a result.
In the event of a temporary financial hardship, this feature could assist in preventing you from defaulting on your account.
