What Is Certified Pre-Owned?

Posted at Thu, Nov 8, 2018 12:00 AM

If you’re a new car buyer or unfamiliar with pre-owned vehicles, the difference between pre-owned and certified pre-owned (CPO) may seem confusing. At Universal Nissan, we are proud to offer both options to our customers.

While used cars are just regular vehicles that have been lightly used, certified pre-owned models come with a few additional incentives and benefits for drivers than a used vehicle.

CPO Benefits

Our certified pre-owned Nissan vehicles are not beaters with chipping paint that barely drive. In oirder to be deemed certified pre-owned, the models must meet the following criteria:

  • Under six years old
  • Under 80,000 miles
  • Clean vehicle history

All certified pre-owned cars also must pass a stringent 167-point inspection. This inspection ensures that the vehicle is aesthetically and mechanically up to par. But don’t just take ou4 word for it. Check out the CARFAX® Vehicle History Report, which is available with each of our certified pre-owned models. This document details previous services, accidents, owners, and more.

About those benefits... Each CPO vehicle comes with a list of services:

  • 7-year/100,000 mile warranty
  • 24-hour emergency roadside assistance
  • Car rental reimbursement and towing benefit
  • Genuine Nissan parts
  • Optional Security+Plus® Extended Protection Plan

And there's still more. When you shop our inventory of pre-owned vehicles, you're privy to some of the highest quality models available. 

In addition to selling you a car that’s reliable and safe, we make sure it stays that way. Any and all Nissan car owners are welcome to stop by our Nissan service center for vehicle maintenance and repair.
