Purchasing a Used Car

Q: Why is test driving a used car important?

A: Our showroom has many great-looking used cars for sale, but looks only tell half of the story. We have a wide selection of makes and models, so test driving one of our used Nissan cars can give you a better feel for the vehicle. Get behind the wheel, get on the road, and you will know whether a particular used car or truck is right for you.

Q: What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned?

A:  Many people purchase used or certified pre-owned cars to expand their purchasing power, or wish to find a vehicle that best fits their driving needs. Used vehicles at our dealership come in a wide variety of makes and models. Certified pre-owned vehicles are quality used cars that are more recent, lightly-used, and have undergone a more rigorous inspection, and come with a CARFAX ® Vehicle History Report as well.
