When drivers in and around Hampton, VA start asking themselves, “Where can I find the best used cars near me?” they often are thinking of typical pre-owned vehicles rather than the certified pre-owned models we offer here at Hall Nissan Chesapeake.

For those who don’t know the difference and are curious about what goes into the certified pre-owned reconditioning process, this primer should spell out everything clearly and hopefully help our customers make smart decisions about the best pre-owned models to purchase.

What Is a Nissan Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

Put simply, a CPO Nissan model is one that fits more rigorous standards than a typical used vehicle, while also offering more warranty protection.

What allows Nissan to offer this extended warranty protection is stringent guidelines that determine whether a vehicle qualifies as certified pre-owned. To meet these standards, a vehicle must:
  • Be less than six years old from the original in-service date
  • Have fewer than 80,000 miles
  • Pass a 167-point inspection

What Happens If a Vehicle Doesn’t Pass the 167-Point Inspection?

This is where pre-owned conditioning comes in. The whole point of CPO models is to sell customers a like-new Nissan vehicle, so if there are a few parts that aren’t “like-new,” our service technicians will replace them to ensure the vehicle does pass the 167-point inspection after a little doctoring.

Notably, our service technicians are specially trained to work with Nissan vehicles, which makes them qualified to initiate these repairs. Furthermore, since we are an official Nissan dealership, we have access to genuine Nissan parts, which maintain the integrity of the vehicle.

In other words, we make sure our CPO vehicles meet these rigid standards by repairing and replacing whatever is necessary before passing on that like-new CPO model to you.
