Why Buying a Used Nissan Is a Buy You Can Bet on

February 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 223

Call it used, second hand or pre-owned, one thing's for sure, if it's an older model Nissan you most certainly can call it pre-loved. In fact, it's likely that the owner of that very vehicle has simply upgraded to a newer Nissan model. Yes, brand loyalty is a given once you've owned a Nissan, ask any owner. But it's not just because Nissan offers such a vast range of top quality products, it's also its reputation for building vehicles that last. And if you're thinking of buying a used Nissan, this should seal the deal.

Understandably, the Nissan brand has earned a solid following since it first entered the country nearly five decades ago under the then Datsun badge. During this time South Africans saw the release of iconic cars such as the 1200 and later 1400 Datsun/Nissan bakkie, the Nissan Sunny and the Nissan 350Z to name a few. Today various Nissan products are manufactured and assembled at the Japanese automaker's plant in Rosslyn, North of Pretoria.

Nissan offers an extensive range of products vast enough to cover every demographic and since the brand has been around for so long, pre-owned products are readily available. Passenger cars range from the mini Micra, Tiida, Livina and Qashqai to the speed hungry 370Z and GTR, while the X-Trail, Pathfinder, Navara, Murano and Patrol allow you to conquer the road less traveled. Commercial vehicles like the NP200 and NP300 pick-ups and other commuters in turn let you take care of business. So whatever your needs or preferences, you're sure to find a used Nissan to match your requirements at any of the many countrywide dealerships such as Group1 Nissan.

Some might argue that buying new is the only safe way to go, whereas others believe that buying pre-owned gives you more bang for your buck. There are obviously arguments to support both. One myth we can bust, however, is that buying second hand means buying blind. Nissan's Valid Value programme, for example, was designed to ensure that used Nissan vehicles complied with stringent quality measures. To qualify as a Valid Value Nissan, the vehicle would have to be less than 3 years old, have less than 100 000km on the odometer and have a full service history. Furthermore these vehicles then undergo a 101-point quality check as well as a background check to ensure its legitimacy. Not only will this programme allow you to buy with complete peace of mind, but you'll get to own a car that's as good as new at a very attractive price. Now that makes good financial sense, doesn't it?
