How long do I need to wait for my vehicle?

Purchasing a new vehicle often means customising it according to your tastes. As such, it takes time for the vehicle to be built to your specification, and can take anywhere between eight and 12 weeks for delivery.

Used Cars

What are the benefits of buying a used car?

Not only do you have the opportunity to purchase a vehicle at a fraction of the price of a new car, you can also benefit from knowing a used car has been thoroughly inspected for engineering performance, there’s less deprecation in the value of your vehicle, you can compare prices with other dealers to lower the cost, and much more.

What’s the difference between a used car and a CPO vehicle?

A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle (CPO) - or Approved Used car - is one that has been certified by the dealer to say that it has passed a multipoint inspection before sale. Such a vehicle ensures greater peace of mind that performance is assured.

How should I prepare when going to buy a used car?

It can be daunting buying a new car, but there are certain things you should always look for. Check the vehicle for any issues such as leaks, scratches, exhaust smoke, worn tyres, mileage, warning lights, welding, and any interior imperfections. Also ensure you take the model for a test drive before purchasing.

Can you lease used cars?

Some dealers do enable used cars to be leased, yes.

Are used cars cheaper to insure?

Insurance costs are dependent on a number of factors, such as vehicle value, engine size, driver age, and past claims. So, while the vehicle value may be priced lower than a new car and thus cheaper to insure, other factors may well bump up the premium. Always ensure you get a quote before purchasing.

Which is the best used Nissan vehicle?

We believe that, such is the quality of the manufacturing and engineering, any used Nissan represents a great deal.

Are used Nissan vehicles reliable?

At South West Nissan, we ensure that all used Nissan vehicles are fully checked by our team of vehicle technicians to ensure that they offer exceptional and reliable performance.
