The Smart Shopper’s Guide to Buying Used Nissan Vehicles in San Diego

Whether you’re shopping for a versatile SUV like the Nissan Rogue, a high-efficiency EV like the LEAF, or a powerful TITAN truck, you’ll find what you’re looking for at Nissan. Of course, the company also offers a broad selection of family sedans plus a minivan and high-powered sports cars so you can make our Nissan showroom a one-stop shop — online or in-person — for your next pre-owned vehicle.

Why Buy a Used Nissan?

Nobody likes to waste money, and you don’t have to when you purchase a pre-owned Nissan. Instead, these used vehicles are generally priced lower than their brand-new counterparts, and a big part of that has to do with depreciation. When you buy a used vehicle, it’s the first owner who takes the biggest hit because new vehicles tend to lose the most value in their first year on the road. Then, since insurance costs are based on a car’s value, the lower price of a pre-owned vehicle usually leads to lower premiums. The flip side to this is that you’re getting more bang for your buck at the same time: You enjoy the same great features as a new-car owner, you just pay less to enjoy them.

True, it’s still a good idea to take into account a pre-owned vehicle’s past life, yet that’s pretty easy to do nowadays since used-vehicle history reports are simple to come by. Another way to enjoy added peace of mind is to shop our Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles that undergo a comprehensive inspection process and feature extra warranty coverage.

A Brief History of Nissan

The company now known as Nissan traces its heritage back to 1911 with the founding of the Kwaishinsha Motor Car Co. that went through a number of corporate owners and names until it became part of the Tobata Casting Co. in 1931. When the Nihon Sangyo Co. became the top investor in the business conglomerate, the group was listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, in 1933, using the first few letters of Nihon and Sangyo: NISSAN.

Nissan introduced Japan’s first mass-produced car in 1937 and entered the U.S. market with the Datsun brand name in 1957. (The “DAT” came from the first letters of the last names of three of the company’s early leaders.) Although responsible for classics like the original Z cars, the Datsun brand was phased out in 1986, and Nissan hasn’t looked back since!
