Still have questions about getting a used car? Check out some of our most frequently asked questions and you’ll feel a whole lot better!


When shopping for used cars, many customers forget about the Certified Pre-Owned cars that are on our lot. The difference between used and CPO models comes with tighter standards. When a car is to be considered for certification, our technicians check the manufacturer's qualifications to make sure that the car is living up to the brand's name. When the car has met the age and mileage requirements, the vehicle is then put through a rigorous inspection process. When all necessary repairs are made and the vehicle is certified, our customers enjoy a warranty on their CPO vehicle.

Because of their efficiency, modern vehicles have a longer “life span,” which has thus changed our knowledge of new and innovative cars. While many of these vehicles can cross that 200,000-mile threshold without experiencing major issues, you’ll want to research which has the best track record with longer mileage. With this information, you can find out which brand and vehicle are the best for you.

When you come into Giles Nissan Opelousas, we’re always looking to get you the right vehicle at an affordable price. It’s also best to do some research before coming into our dealership. Use Kelley Blue Book® or Edmunds to look up the trending prices on the specific make and model of your choice, and if you’re ready to part ways with your current ride, you’ll see a more favorable bottom line when you value your trade. You can use our KBB® Instant Cash Offer option as well, which will give you a fair and reasonable price on your trade in.

This is a very important question! When you buy from a dealership, you’re getting a multitude of transparent information and prices for your used car. Buying from private sellers can often be sketchy and many lie to get a good deal on their car. With dealerships (like ourselves), we’re legally obligated to tell you everything about the car you’re looking for! And if there’s a problem with your vehicle, just bring it right back to us for service and repairs. When you buy from a private seller, you’re likely to never see them again. With a dealership, you’re able to get offers like used specials and incentives for when you buy.

When you buy a used vehicle, you’ll still be getting a quality Nissan model at an affordable price. And while you’re looking for parts, you'll find that they’re a lot cheaper on used vehicles than if you were to buy brand-new. When you’re looking for a used car, make sure you’re looking at all the right options. Come down to Giles Nissan Opelousas and we can help you find whatever you’re looking for.
