Hi Pathfinder Peeps, I'm looking to buy a 2017 SL and would appreciate advice. I have my eye on a car with 40,000 miles, but there is another one with just 20,000 miles and it's CPO for $3000 more. Is it worth the price difference to get the low mileage CPO?

Are you buying both from a dealer? Generally Nissan extends the powertrain warranty to 7Yr/100K on used vehicles. The CPO may be bumper-to-bumper, for a limited time. Make sure you know what you're getting and for how long for the additional $3000.

Seems about right depending on how long you keep your car. I'm figuring a new PF is ~$30K and you probably drive it to 150,000 miles and sell it for $5K. That's $25K for 150,000 miles. That's roughly $.167/mile (just raw cost no maintenance etc.) $.167x 20,000 miles is $3333. If ll else is equal, this seems like a reasonable cost.

Good point. I'll check on the CPO's warranty. I'd have to buy a warranty on the other one.

I bought the one with lower miles and negotiated down about $500. They had already dropped the price $300 from the last time I'd talked to them, so I was happy with the final price and trade-in value. Buying a car is exhausting! I'm glad that part is over with.

Sweet!

The Pathfinder is OK too.:D

Good for you on negotiating on the lower mileage one.

Having bought Nissan CPO'd vehicles before, I find the whole CPO process to be just a marketing tool to justify a higher asking price. They go through a ~120pt checklist that's initialed and signed in triplicate on the vehicle, but the whole thing tends to just get pencil whipped. All Nissan CPO does is give you power-train only coverage for ~7yrs/100K miles.

Our 2016 Nissan Quest was CPO and things that were signed off as being OK (by 3 people) were either missing or incorrect on the vehicle. It was missing the spare tire, missing key FOBs to name a few.
