What is a Nissan Demo Car?
Demo vehicles can be a good way to save money on a nearly new car. Dealerships often use demo vehicles for test drives. Demo cars may also be used by managers or sales staff for commuting or visiting car events.
Mileage on these cars will vary based on how they were used. Demo cars used for test drives may have lower mileage, possibly less than 3,000. Program cars driven by manufacturer representatives may have up to 10,000 miles on the odometer. Finally, loaner vehicles, or vehicles given to customers to use as a temporary mode of transportation while their Nissan is in for service, may vary greatly on mileage.
Benefits of a Nissan Demo Vehicle
If you want the best of both worlds, then a Nissan demo car is the way to go. When shopping for a demo vehicle, make sure that you ask for the maintenance history, just to make sure that the car has been properly serviced during the time it was a demo vehicle.
Next, inquire about any applicable maintenance plan, manufacturer warranties, or extended warranties. Demo units are covered by the original manufacturer warranty, just as a new car. For example, if a car comes with a 3 year, 36,000 bumper to bumper warranty and the car already has 3,000 miles on the car, you have 33,000 miles left to go, still with all the benefits of a brand new Nissan vehicle.
Finally, inspect the interior and exterior for signs of wear and tear. Most demo vehicles will be like brand new with little to no wear incurred, but just double check to see that the car is to your satisfaction.
