At DARCARS Nissan of College Park, you have many different choices and this includes pre-owned vehicles. There's used cars, trucks and SUVs, and then we also have a robust selection of certified pre-owned Nissan options. The latter has many benefits and while both choices and selection here give you a quality drive that helps you save, there are different criteria for each one which all drivers in Washington, DC and the surrounding area should know about, and we want to help you explore.

To start, a certified pre-owned Nissan is going to give you savings over the cost of buying a new Nissan. What you'll find however is a specific set of guidelines these Nissan vehicles must pass before getting the certified label, which helps set them apart from other used cars. This criteria is as follows:

First, the vehicle must be within six years of its original in-service date. That means in 2020, the latest a model can be to currently qualify as a certified pre-owned Nissan is 2014. To ensure that there's still standout driving left, every certified pre-owned Nissan must have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer, so you know it's lightly used and still will provide you with many years of driving.

Vehicles that are able to meet both the year and mileage benchmarks then must pass a thorough 167-point inspection which evaluates all aspects including exterior condition, engine, interior features and other mechanical components all of which help the vehicle run as smooth as possible. Those that have fixable solutions are fixed, while those that might not meet the standards aren't given the label. That doesn't mean the vehicle isn't a quality used car, it just meets that for this specific set of vehicles, Nissan puts the vehicle integrity at the highest levels.

Knowing that you're getting a smaller, but strongly vetted used vehicle in the form of a certified pre-owned Nissan gives you confidence when you purchase. There's peace of mind also when we include a third party-verified CARFAX vehicle history report, too. Plus you're getting the backing of warranty coverage. This includes any remaining new vehicle warranty coverage, a seven-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty along with roadside assistance on all certified pre-owned Nissan options. There's numerous other coverage options, and it all serves to give you an experience that's affordable, but also has your back for your maintenance and repair needs.

These reasons and more are why you should consider a certified pre-owned Nissan from our College Park showroom, be it a Nissan Altima, Rogue or Pathfinder. We're here to explain the benefits, and showcase all our current selection, many of which are very recent model year options with low mileage as they've just come off lease. It's a standout way to save and get a stylish car, truck or SUV, with modern features like touch display and smartphone integration and safety technology that helps keep you alert.
