Pre-Owned Featured Nissan Vehicles

Whether you purchase a new vehicle for work or pleasure, it is always important to be aware of the many choices available to you. The advantages of choosing a pre-owned car, truck or SUV far outweigh the disadvantages, especially with the great selection we have at Gateway Nissan! Add to that the option of buying a fully certified pre-owned Nissan and you have a winning combination.

Advantages of buying a pre-owned automobile

Price is a huge advantage when purchasing a pre-owned automobile. While it is not as pristine as it was when it left the factory, this car is new to the buyer. With a lower purchase price, a car buyer may be able to upgrade the make, model or size of their intended purchase. And with less money spent on the actual purchase price, car buyers are further able to customize or add accessories to their newly purchased vehicle.

The truth is that all new vehicles depreciate in value the moment they are driven off the dealership lot. Once owned and driven, almost all varieties of automobiles lose the value of their original purchase price with each passing mile. In fact, some makes and models of cars literally devalue as much as 40 percent in their first year.

Depending upon where you live and drive, the cost of owning an automobile is made more expensive by the amount of automobile insurance you carry. Insurance rates are derived by taking into consideration everything from a driver's age to their past driving record. Owning an older vehicle is one way to lower the cost of your insurance as it is less expensive to replace in the event of an accident. What should prospective buyers look for in a used car, truck or SUV?

  1. Obtain an up to date vehicle history report for any automobile you are interested in buying. A vehicle lacking a "paper trail" of its ownership is more likely to have undergone major damage, been stolen or sold under suspicious circumstances. When buying a used vehicle from a trustworthy dealership, the vehicle history report will generally be provided free of charge.
  2. Ask to see the vehicle's service records whenever possible. A well-kept vehicle will always have a record of service that includes scheduled oil changes, filters, major and minor repairs. Closely walk around the car, looking for body damage or obvious repairs to it. Bend down to check for oil drips and water leakage from the radiator or air conditioning system.
  3. In addition to checking the vehicle yourself, make sure you have it inspected by a mechanic before discussing the sale price or making a purchase agreement. While some car owners are willing to make minor repairs on their own, no one wants to be surprised by major repairs after making their purchase. The mechanic performing the inspection should not only go item by item when making an inspection, but provide the potential buyer with a written copy of their checklist.
  4. As a prospective car buyer, you should be able to ask as many relevant questions as you wish to without endangering the sale. If the private seller or dealer is unable to answer your question immediately, it is their duty to find the correct answer and get back to you in a timely manner. If you are discouraged or belittled for requesting information at any time, this may indicative of issues that have plagued the vehicle in the past and will likely reoccur in the future.

What does certified pre-owned mean?

"Certified Pre-Owned" status is bestowed on those cars, trucks and SUVs that meet the highest industry standards. These automobiles are sold with less than 80,000 odometer miles and are no more than six years old. Each Nissan certified pre-owned vehicle must not only have a clean title and vehicle history, but be able to pass a comprehensive 167 item inspection by their own team of Nissan certified mechanics.

The benefits of purchasing a certified pre-owned Nissan automobile include:

  1. A Vehicle History Report provided at no charge to the buyer
  2. 24 hour emergency roadside assistance
  3. A towing benefit with car rental reimbursement when necessary
  4. Repairs performed using genuine Nissan parts and accessories
  5. An optional "Security+Plus Extended Protection Plan"
  6. A three month free trial subscription to SiriusXM Satellite Radio
