Plenty of Peoria car shoppers want to drive vehicles that are like-new but with a lower price. When they shop at Avondale Nissan they’ll find a great selection of certified pre-owned Nissan vehicles. What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned? Both categories feature vehicles that had previous owners, but certified pre-owned—or CPO—vehicles offer much more. Find out the difference in CPO vs. used with Avondale Nissan, then shop our certified pre-owned Nissan inventory

CPO vs. Used: What Do You Get With a Nissan CPO Vehicle? 

When you shop for a used car, you’ll find a wide range of makes, models, years, styles, mileage, prices, and features. The Nissan certified pre-owned program helps whittle down the field a bit, since only Nissan vehicles that are less than six years old from the original in-service date, with less than 80,000 miles on them. Take a look at what you get with a Nissan CPO vs. used:

  • 7-year/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 [*]

CPO vs. Used: Benefits of a Used Car

Non-CPO used cars don’t have limits on their ages or mileage, although our service department does make sure that all of our used vehicles are safe and dependable. While CPOs have the 80,000-mile limit, you can find vehicles of all mileages in our used selection. If you need a budget used car, there are plenty of options that might have over 100,000 miles, but because they were properly maintained they’ll be able to provide many more years on the roads. And of course, should you find any issues with your used vehicle, alert us, and we’ll take care of the matter.
