With a vehicle title history, vehicle title insurance, and inspection, a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is finally ready for you to put it to the test.

Every Certified Pre-Owned Nissan is backed by more than our word. First, a vehicle title history through TitleGuard+Plus helps ensure against hidden DMV title defects like salvaged vehicles, title fraud/forgery, evidence of odometer rollback, stolen vehicles, and more.

After the paperwork checks out, it’s time to get our hands dirty. Each Certified Pre-Owned Nissan must pass our award-winning, rigorous 142-point inspection covering everything from the engine and drivetrain to the seats and interior. This inspection confirms that the quality and condition of the vehicle meets or exceeds our own criteria. Even after it passes the vehicle title history and our own inspection process, it still must pass the most important test – yours.
