Nissan offers a limited warranty on certified pre-owned vehicles that lasts for 7 years or 100,000 miles – whichever comes first. This warranty covers over 600 components and is similar to a powertrain warranty that covers the engine, transmission, and drivetrain, plus some extra parts.
If a covered component related to one of these parts fails or breaks within the warranty period, you can have it repaired or replaced at a Nissan dealership. You’ll need to pay a $100 deductible before repairs are made, however.
The warranty starts from the vehicle’s in-service date, so if your CPO Nissan is already three years old when you buy it, only four years of coverage remain. The warranty is transferable to new owners if you sell your CPO Nissan before your coverage period expires.
Nissan EV Certified Warranty
Fully-electric vehicles in Nissan’s CPO program get the same warranty of 7 years/100,000 miles. Coverage is slightly different to include components in the electric drive system (EVs don’t have combustion engines, of course).
Nissan CPO Warranty Benefits
All Nissan CPO vehicles also include the following perks for buyers:
- Complimentary 1 year or 15,000 miles of maintenance
- One Carfax® Vehicle History Report
- Special financing rates available with Nissan CPO vehicles as well as certain rebate offers (vary by dealership)
- Three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio
Additionally, for the length of the warranty, CPO Nissan drivers have access to car rental reimbursement and Nissan roadside assistance, which covers services such as:
- Towing assistance
- Flat-tire changes
- Fuel deliveries
- Battery jump-starts
- Lockout services
Nissan CPO Warranty Vs. Other Manufacturers
Compared to other manufacturer CPO warranties, Nissan CPO warranty coverage may leave drivers wanting more protection. In addition to having a deductible, coverage only protects powertrain components. Most CPO warranties include at least one year of bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage on top of what’s left from the original factory warranty as well.
For example, Toyota offers 1 year/12,000 miles of extra bumper-to-bumper coverage on Gold Certified vehicles. Honda also offers 1 year/12,000 miles or 2 years/50,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage depending on the CPO vehicle’s condition and age. This is on top of what’s left of Honda’s 3-year/36,000-mile limited factory warranty when you get the car.
