Used Vehicles 

In order to define the difference between used and certified pre-owned vehicles, we first need to define what a used vehicle is. A used vehicle is simply any vehicle that’s been previously owned, including certified pre-owned models. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind when considering a used vehicle near Buna: 

  • Used vehicles aren’t required to be inspected by the OEM unless they’re certified pre-owned. That said, when you buy a used vehicle at Nissan of Silsbee, you can rest assured that your vehicle has been given a comprehensive diagnostic and is in good shape. Buying a used vehicle is only risky when you go through a private seller. 
  • Stick to your vehicle’s recommended service intervals, it could last upwards of 200,000 miles. Mileage is a secondary consideration these days. Rather, make sure to prioritize things to consider service history and reliability scores first. 

Certified Pre-owned Vehicles

When it comes to CPO vs. Used vehicles, it’s helpful to know that all certified pre-owned vehicles are used, but not all used vehicles are certified pre-owned. Certified pre-owned Nissan models have less than 80,000 miles on the odometer, they’re less than 6 years old, and they’ve undergone a 167-point inspection at the hands of certified Nissan mechanics to ensure like-new quality. They also feature a 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, roadside assistance, and a free CARFAX® Vehicle History Report. .
