Nissan Certified Pre-Owned Program

Overview

Nissan’s certified pre-owned (CPO) warranty offers 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection from the car’s original sale date. It also includes a 3-month trial of SiriusXM radio, a free Carfax vehicle history report, and 24-hour roadside assistance for the length of the CPO warranty.

What We Like

Long powertrain warranty; special finance rates; free Carfax and SiriusXM trial; fully transferable

What We Don’t

No bumper-to-bumper limited warranty means some common items aren’t covered;

Program Specifics

If you’re looking for a used Nissan, considering the brand’s certified pre-owned warranty is a no-brainer. After all, buying a CPO Nissan gives you a big discount compared to a new model, while still providing you with a fully manufacturer-backed powertrain warranty.

Available on used Nissan models up to 6 years old and with up to 80,000 miles on the odometer, the program provides a full 7-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, extending Nissan’s standard powertrain warranty by 2 years or up to 40,000 total miles. There’s a $100 deductible for covered repairs.

Nissan’s CPO warranty offers a few other benefits, as well. It’s fully transferable to the next owner, and it comes with a free Carfax report. It also includes 24-hour roadside assistance (as most CPO programs do), no deductible for roadside visits, and a free 3-month trial of SiriusXM radio for vehicles equipped with the feature. Other CPO perks include rental reimbursement of $35 per day for up to 5 days during covered repairs, as well as trip-interruption benefits if covered repairs are required more than 100 miles from home.

But Nissan’s certified pre-owned program isn’t perfect. On the contrary, we’re a bit surprised that it doesn’t include any bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage beyond what remains of the original 36-month or 36,000-mile new car warranty, only powertrain coverage. That means you won’t be covered if, for example, the air conditioning goes out in your recently purchased certified used Nissan and the car is more than three years old. We’re also disappointed that the powertrain warranty begins on the day the original owner bought the car. That means you’ll have to keep track of the car’s original sale date, rather than the date you purchased the vehicle, to figure out when your powertrain warranty ends.

In all, Nissan’s CPO program is fairly average. There are some obvious benefits, such as a long powertrain plan, but we wish the plan included at least a little additional bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage.

  1. CPO is nice but buying new is a better option. better rebates, and discounts with Nissan. DM message me for details. 

  2. I have a Ford Taurus limited , AC Condenser  went at 90,000 miles ..Full coverage ! Would have cost me$1800!  Im surprised Nissan CPO doesn’t cover these items … Ill go buy another Ford CPO Program vehicle 

    • I drove a BMW 5 for 350,000 miles and the AC condenser never went. The only things it ever asked for were brakes, wiper blades, oil and filters, worn out seat leather and carpets. It didn’t even ask for a clutch.

  3. CPO warranty is 7 year / 100,000 mile limited warrenty not powertrain warranty, but no one can tell me what that means.

    • What that means is it will not cover anything that fails related to the wheels or transmission or engine. It might cover window motors and wiper motors, that sort of thing though I wouldn’t bet on it.

    • You should’ve got the CPO wrap. If you buy a car with just a powertrain warranty and think you’ll ever use it, you’re an idiot
