What Is a Certified Pre-Owned Nissan?

When shopping for a used car, you may have come across the term “certified pre-owned,” aka CPO. This is somewhat a new class a vehicle that gained a lot of popularity within the past few years. A certified pre-owned vehicle is still technically used, but automakers reserve this status for only the best used cars.

A certified pre-owned Nissan has to be less than six years old, have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer, and have a clean title. Then, the car needs to pass a thorough 167-point inspection. If faults are found during the inspection, these problems are repaired using genuine Nissan parts.

Along with the benefits of owning a nice car, each Certified Pre-Owned Nissan comes with a 7-year/100,000-mile limited warranty, 24-hour emergency roadside assistance, a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report, and a 3-month trial subscription to SiriusXM Satellite Radio on properly equipped vehicles.

With all of these benefits, buying a CPO car can give you the best of both worlds. You get the money-saving benefits of buying used with the added confidence of knowing your car has been thoroughly inspected and comes with a warranty, just like a new car.

When Do You Need New Tires for Your Car?

One of the most important safety features on your car has been standard issue since the very first automobile was invented. In case you have not guessed what it could be, it is the tires. Those four pieces of rubber are what keep you connected to the road. And, of course, they wear out over time. So, how do you know when you need new tires?

One of the key signs of a worn-out tire is the tread depth. A simple way to see if the tread is still deep enough is to place a penny head first into the grooves. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, it is time to replace your tires. Do this test in several spots on all of your tires since tread doesn’t always wear evenly.

More signs of old tires are cracks or bulges in the sidewall. If you see any signs of this, you definitely need to replace the tires. When tires are worn out, do they do offer as much traction, especially in wet weather.

If you are worried about the condition of your tires, schedule a service appointment with us here at Cronic Nissan and we can inspect your tires and tell you if it is time to replace them.
