Nissan Through the Years

Nissan’s origins date back to the early 1900s when the Datsun made its debut on Japanese soil. Over the next decade, Nissan perfected the design and officially established itself as the Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. in 1933. Four years later, the company made history when the Datsun Type 15 became the first mass-produced vehicle in the country.

The Datsun’s success in Japan prompted Nissan’s worldwide expansion, which meant the introduction of the Datsun 1000 sedan to American drivers in 1958. While the sedan wasn’t a huge success, Nissan quickly recovered with its quarter-ton Datsun pickup truck that was agile, capable, and incredibly versatile. The next several decades brought ongoing success for Nissan, which was still known as Datsun, with models like the Datsun 2000 Roadster, Datsun Z, 240Z, and the Datsun 510 sedan. By the 1970s, Nissan was the top importer in the United States.

With Nissan models in high demand, the automaker established its Tennessee plant in the 1980s and debuted its first American-built truck in 1984, followed by the Sentra in 1985. That early truck set the stage for future models like the Frontier and Titan, while the Sentra laid a solid foundation for the brand’s future lineup of luxurious sedans like the Altima and Maxima.

Nissan’s reputation as an early adopter of trends and innovative technology became more apparent in the new millennium with the expansion of its lineup. This period brought with its the first four-door compact truck and a host of capable SUVs like the Xterra that gave adventurous rigs like the Jeep Wrangler some friendly competition. While the Xterra was later discontinued, Nissan continued to expand its lineup with spacious SUVs like the Pathfinder and Armada, luxury models like the Murano, and EVs like the LEAF.

Nissan’s Certified Pre-Owned Program: Overview and Details

The risks that were once associated with buying a used vehicle are minimal, thanks to automakers like Nissan and its Certified Pre-Owned program. Nissan does everything in its power to give you confidence in its vehicles by holding its Certified Pre-Owned models to a higher standard. This means that not every Nissan can earn its certified badge.


For a Nissan to be considered for certification, it must be less than six years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles. The vehicle must have a clean title and must pass Nissan’s 167-point Certified Pre-Owned inspection. The inspection is conducted by a Nissan-trained technician who looks over every inch of the vehicle, notating any areas of concern before sending it for reconditioning. These repairs are noted on the Nissan service history report as well as the CARFAX vehicle history report, both of which you’re given prior to purchase.

Satisfaction Guarantee

You’ll reap the benefits of Nissan’s partnership with CARFAX since every Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with a comprehensive report as well as the CARFAX 3-Year Buyback Guarantee. This exclusive guarantee is designed to engineer confidence in your purchase. If you find that the CARFAX report didn’t include existing title issues, CARFAX may offer to buy the vehicle back for the purchase price.

Peace of Mind on the Road

Every Certified Pre-Owned Nissan comes with a 7-year or 100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty that gives you peace of mind long after you drive off the lot in your new-to-you Nissan. This coverage covers over 600 components from the engine and transmission to the drivetrain with a minimal $100 deductible. It also comes with the guarantee that our technicians will repair your Certified Pre-Owned Nissan with new or high-quality remanufactured replacement parts.

Beyond this coverage, your Certified Pre-Owned Nissan also comes with 24-hour Roadside Assistance that’s there to help when you have a flat tire, lock your keys inside the vehicle, or need a jump start. When the unthinkable happens, and you’re stranded with an inoperable vehicle, Nissan offers towing assistance, car rental reimbursement, and trip interruption coverage. When you’re not in dire need of assistance, Nissan makes your time behind the wheel more enjoyable with a complimentary trial to SiriusXM satellite radio.
