You may think that new and used vehicles are your only options in the Homestead, but for many drivers, Certified Pre-Owned vehicles combine the best of both worlds. While both CPO vs. used cars are pre-owned options, you’ll find different advantages between the two. At HGreg Nissan Kendall, we offer the extensive selection that you need to find just the right match for your needs and budget. Take a look at our guide to CPO vs. used cars:

CPO vs. Used

So, just what is the difference between used and certified pre-owned? It’s common to find used cars around South Miami, while CPO vehicles are a little more difficult to find. That’s because “used” simply means “not new”. The vehicle may have one owner or multiple owners, it may be in great condition or less-than-great condition. “Certified Pre-Owned”, on the other hand, is a much smaller category within the used market. CPO cars undergo a strict inspection process, and they usually come with good warranty coverage for added peace of mind. Here are some of the standards of the Nissan CPO Program:

  • Must be within six years of the current model year.
  • Have less than 80,000 miles on the odometer.
  • Must have a clean, non-branded title.
  • Must pass a 167-point inspection by our Nissan Certified technicians. 

Benefits of CPO Vehicles

Not only will you get a like-new vehicle at a discounted price, but CPO vehicles also offer tons of benefits that you won’t find anywhere else. From emergency services to deluxe offers, check out some of the perks of the Nissan CPO program:

  • 24-Hour emergency roadside assistance (7 years/100,000 miles)
  • Towing
  • Car rental reimbursement
  • Trip interruption coverage
  • Ownership transferability
  • 7 years/100,000 mile limited coverage warranty
  • Optional Security+Plus® Extended Protection Plan
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio with 3-month trial subscription
  • CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™
