One thing’s for sure: Americans love their utility vehicles. Both traditional large truck-based SUVs and their car-based crossover counterparts have been selling like proverbial hotcakes in recent years. It seems that everyone either has one or wants one, but the sticker price can be steep for some budgets.
There is good news for those who are watching their spending, though: the preowned market provides a great alternative to buying brand-new. There is indeed a vast inventory of well-cared-for used Nissan crossovers and SUVs waiting for their next happy driver. Many of these secondhand models have low mileage and have been so well maintained that it’s hard to distinguish them from the latest edition. Yet they’re available for thousands of dollars less than the newest models, and with comparable warranty coverage.
Substantial Savings for the Life of the Vehicle
When you buy a used Nissan crossover or SUV, you will of course save a lot of money initially – on both the sticker price and sales tax – than if you’d bought brand-new. But you’ll continue to save money as long as you own it, since car-related expenses such as insurance and property tax are based on vehicle valuation. That means you’ll pay lower insurance premiums and less in yearly taxes.
Which Model Is Right for You?
As a used-vehicle shopper, you can find low-miles Nissan utility vehicles for thousands less than the new versions, but often with many of the same advanced features. You’ll also get the same Nissan build quality and reliability, so you can rest assured that you’ll have your vehicle for years to come.
Like other automakers, Nissan has expanded its lineup of utility vehicles so that there’s something with the features, size, and capabilities that individual buyers want. The subcompact Kicks crossover may be the ideal size for one driver, while someone else needs the space and towing capacity of the full-sized Armada SUV. In between – in ascending order of size – you’ll find the front-wheel-drive Rogue Sport, the Rogue and Murano crossovers with available all-wheel drive, and the Pathfinder mid-sized SUV, which along with the Armada is offered in two- or four-wheel drive.

Buy with Extra Confidence: Nissan Certified Pre-Owned
The ultimate way to purchase a used Nissan crossover or SUV is through the certified preowned (CPO) program. The vehicles under this certification are the cream of the crop of the secondhand market, with rigorous screening for condition and added warranty coverage. To qualify, the used Nissan must be under certain limits for age (6 model years) and mileage (80,000) before undergoing a strict inspection where more than 165 items are evaluated. Vehicles that pass the process are reconditioned as needed and then offered for sale as CPO. Then they’re covered with a 7-year/100,000-mile deductible-free warranty, with extended coverage available. Other perks of the CPO program include a CARFAX vehicle history report, free 24/7 roadside assistance, and a three-month trial subscription for SiriusXM satellite radio.
