Which Option Is Right For You?

Here at Tri-State Nissan, we’re dedicated to taking the hard work out of purchasing or leasing your next ride. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help inform you of your options so you can drive home your new or used car with confidence. And if you have any questions, please feel free to contact our professional sales team today.

4 Benefits Of Buying New

It’s not just that new-car smell—it’s the pleasure of being the first owner of that new car, crossover, truck, or SUV. Here are just a few of the benefits of buying new:

  1. You won’t have to worry about the vehicle history. The maintenance record will be clean, and you won’t have to wonder if the previous owner kept up with maintenance intervals or drove the vehicle hard.
  2. Most new vehicles come with warranty protection, giving you even more peace-of-mind without needing to pay extra for that coverage.
  3. You’ll have lots of options, from sporty models and luxurious trims to exterior colors and tech packages. You can customize and create the exact vehicle you want.
  4. You get to take home the latest technology, safety, fuel efficiency, and more. New vehicles come with advanced driver assist features, smartphone connectivity, fuel-efficient hybrid options, and other perks.

4 Benefits Of Buying Used

There are big savings over a brand-new car when you choose to explore used vehicles. Here are a few of the benefits of buying used:

  1. Used vehicles are affordable—in many ways. Not only does a used vehicle offer a lower sticker price, you’ll also save on the sales tax and your auto insurance premium. You may not even be required to carry full insurance coverage.
  2. You’ll have more information on a vehicle’s reliability record, rankings, and reviews. Once a model has been on the road for a few years, you’ll have more info available about the cost of ownership, potential maintenance concerns, and more.
  3. A used vehicle won’t have as much depreciation. Since a vehicle loses much of its value in the first few years of ownership, you can avoid that large drop in value by purchasing used and take advantage of a lower-priced vehicle that will depreciate much slower as it ages.
  4. You may be able to get into your dream vehicle since your used options will be more affordable and you’ll have more buying power.

What About Certified Pre-Owned?

If you’re looking for a vehicle that offers benefits of both options, consider Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles. Only vehicles that meet high standards qualify for Certified Pre-Owned status. They must be less than six years old from the original in-service date; have less than 80,000 miles on the odometer; have a clean, non-branded title; and pass a comprehensive 167-point inspection.

At Tri-State Nissan, we have a wide selection of CPO Nissan cars and Nissan trucks for sale. Plus, our CPO vehicles come with exclusive benefits, including:

  • 7-year/100,000-mile limited warranty

  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio with 3-month trial subscription
