Nissan Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles vs. Non Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles.

January 21st, 2016 by

If you’ve been car shopping and have also been doing research to help prepare you for the trip to the dealership, you may be confused by the terminology that is used on many car dealer websites. What we’re going to try to do here is eliminate some of that confusion by clearly explaining the difference between a certified pre-owned vehicle and a non-certified pre-owned vehicle at Action Nissan of Nashville.

Car shoppers basically have three choices:

New cars
Certified pre-owned cars
Non-certified pre-owned cars
Certified pre-owned cars are used cars, like non-certified pre-owned cars are used, but CPO vehicles have to meet certain stringent criteria to get approved for the certified pre-owned Nissan program. In order to become a certified pre-owned (CPO) Nissan vehicle, the car, truck or SUV must be less than five years old from the original in-service date and have fewer than 60,000 miles on the odometer. Also, the cars must have a clean, non-branded title, and they must pass a comprehensive 142-point Certified Pre-Owned inspection performed by a Nissan factory-trained mechanic.

With such high standards, drivers get the peace of mind of knowing they’re driving off the Action Nissan lot in a high-quality used car that is in tip-top condition, has low miles and has a non-branded title.

Here are just some of the benefits of buying a Nissan certified pre-owned vehicle:

84-month (7 years)/100,000-mile limited warranty
24-hour Emergency Roadside Assistance
Car Rental Reimbursement and Towing Benefit
Genuine Nissan parts
CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™
SiriusXM Satellite Radio with 3-month trial subscription
Optional Security+Plus® Extended Protection Plan
Here are some more details about these benefits:

24/7 Emergency Roadside Assistance provides flat tire change with your spare, dead battery jump, or lockout assistance for the duration of the 7-year/100,000 mile limited warranty.

You will get up to $100 towing assistance, and with some plans, your car will be towed to the nearest Nissan dealer within 250 miles. You get up to five days of car rental reimbursement at a maximum of $35 per day for mechanical breakdown of covered components.
If a mechanical breakdown of a covered part takes place when you are more than 100 miles from home, you’ll be covered for up to $500 for meals, lodging and alternate transportation.
The Nissan Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty is transferable from the retail customer to one subsequent private owner (private party to private party) for the duration of the warranty period.

You don’t get any of these benefits when you buy a non-certified pre-owned vehicle at Action Nissan of Nashville. Come by, call or email us today to learn more about the huge inventory of CPO vehicles on our lot today.
