What sets apart a Nissan certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle from the typical used Nissan selection you'll find? There are many details involved, but to make it simple, we'd say that the confidence that comes with a CPO Nissan vehicle is what makes the biggest difference. Think of it like this: When buying a new car, you'll drive home with full confidence that all the many parts are up to spec and that a warranty backs them should something go wrong. While all of our used Nissan vehicles for sale offer quality and confidence, that new-car level of confidence is what you get with a CPO vehicle.
You'll also get it at a used-car price; that's the main benefit you get with a certified pre-owned Nissan. It starts with strict criteria and a deep dive into the vehicle's history to even be considered for certification. Once passed, a rigorous inspection must also be passed with flying colors. Once all is said and done, a vehicle will join our CPO inventory with many more benefits to make them as attractive as a used car can get. So what are these benefits? Let's find out.
Let's start with the previously mentioned criteria that must be passed. A significant benefit in itself, this list of criteria ensures that only vehicles you can truly count on make it through to the next step:
Where things get intense is when these criteria are passed. Now, the vehicle being considered for Nissan pre-owned certified status must pass a 162-point inspection performed by Nissan-trained technicians. This ensures that everything from creature comforts to critical mechanical components is in top shape and functioning properly. Pass that, and vehicles like a used Nissan Frontier can now enter the CPO fleet.
There's more to it than that, namely several further benefits to give you confidence behind the wheel. First, a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ is included, along with a unique-to-the-industry Nissan CARFAX® Three-Year Buyback Guarantee — contact us for details on this guarantee. What's more, though, you also get trip interruption coverage to reimburse food, lodging, and alternative transport expenses up to $500 in case a vehicle breakdown occurs over 100 miles from home.
You'll also get access to 24/7 Nissan Emergency Roadside Assistance for flat-tire changes, dead battery jump-starts, and more. Towing assistance up to $100 and car-rental reimbursement up to a maximum of $35 per day for five days when a warranty-covered breakdown occurs to make it all even better. So take that road trip near Laurel with full confidence; you've got some great benefits backing you up.
Another confidence-inspiring benefit to a Nissan certified pre-owned vehicle is the warranty coverage you get with it. Starting on the original new car in-service date, this Limited Powertrain Warranty lasts seven years or 100,000 miles. You'll get coverage on over 600 parts in the engine, transmission, and drivetrain. Say one of these parts breaks in your certified pre-owned Nissan Rogue; repairs will be covered with a $100 deductible per visit.
So now you know the many benefits backing each Nissan certified pre-owned vehicle in our inventory. Getting new-car confidence at a used-car price is great, but receiving professional and friendly customer service makes the experience even better. That's what we're here to offer you, and it's what we've been committed to since 1990. So browse our CPO inventory, or check out our used Nissan Altima inventory. Either route you take, stop by and experience the Petro Nissan difference today.
In essence, Nissan certified pre-owned (CPO) means that you're getting the ultimate in used-car confidence. To join the Nissan CPO fleet, eligibility criteria, including mileage and age, must first be met. From there, a 162-point inspection will ensure everything is up to spec and will provide a quality experience. On top of confidence from that, you get further benefits like 24/7 roadside assistance, towing assistance, and more, along with a seven-year / 100,000 mile (whichever comes first) warranty to back it all up.
With the Nissan certified pre-owned warranty, parts coverage includes over 600 components in the engine, transmission, and drivetrain. They range from the entire engine block to gaskets and seals within the transmission and much more. For each repair covered, a $100 deductible will be required per visit.
Many, many components are included in the 167-point checklist that the Nissan certified pre-owned inspection demands. This includes major mechanical parts like the fuel pump, entire braking system, and engine mounts, among many more. Creature comforts are covered, too, like the A/C system, audio system, interior trim, and much more.
