What to Look for When Buying a Used Nissan Car 

Purchasing a pre-owned vehicle requires careful consideration. While used cars offer upfront savings, a hasty purchase can leave you at a loss, stuck with an unreliable vehicle that’ll cost you big time down the road.

Here at Nissan of Orangeburg, our used vehicle inventory has undergone a rigorous inspection process to ensure top quality – so you’re sure to find the right ride at the right price. Plus, our team has provided some helpful tips to keep in mind when shopping for a used vehicle. Check them out, then stop by your hometown used Nissan dealer to experience buying done right!

Preliminary Research

Making a great investment requires some research. But first, consider your needs and your budget. Once you’ve listed your non-negotiables and calculated a monthly payment you’re comfortable with, start looking for vehicles that match your requirements. Conducting an online search is an efficient way to narrow down your search before stopping by a dealership for a test drive. Be sure to consider things like safety and driver assistance technologies, cargo space, seating capacity, infotainment features, and fuel economy.

Found a used car, truck, or SUV that matches your lifestyle and budget? Now it’s time to find out more about its past. Run its vehicle identification number (VIN) through a service like CARFAX or Kelley Blue Book to learn more about past owners, accident history, maintenance, and more.

Websites like Consumer Reports and US News and World Report are helpful resources too, offering rankings and reviews that provide valuable insight into a specific model’s potential issues and ability to retain its value over time.

Look at mileage too, and compare it to the average of 10,000 to 12,000 miles driven per year. If the vehicle dramatically exceeds this average, it may require major service sooner rather than later – and repair costs add up quickly!

Interior and Exterior Assessment

If your research doesn’t reveal anything concerning, a thorough visual inspection comes next. Take your time when performing these steps:

  • Check windows for chips and cracks.
  • Inspect tires for uneven or excessive wear, including bald spots.
  • Take a peek underneath to ensure no underbody rust.
  • Pop the hood and look for indications of wear, like fluid leaks or cracked belts.
  • Park on a flat surface to ensure the vehicle sits level to the ground.
  • Look for paint chips, rust, dings, dents, and other exterior imperfections.
  • Test all lights, including turn signals, hazards, and interior lights.
  • Make sure the trunk is large enough to accommodate typical cargo.
  • Double check that key fobs work and that there are two sets of keys.
  • Measure the vehicle’s dimensions if you’ll need to regularly park in a tight spot.
  • Check that seats are comfortable and in good condition – and that rear rows are easily accessible to passengers, if needed.
  • Confirm that the vehicle’s odometer reading matches the listed mileage.
  • Perform a sniff test to ensure the cabin doesn’t have any strange or unpleasant odors.
  • Make sure that each interior feature functions properly.

Trusted Mechanic Inspection

While the visual checks listed above are undeniably important, you’ll also want to have the used car inspected by a professional. Have a service technician you trust take a closer look, noting any issues. If any major problems are found, you may be able to negotiate a lower price. If you don’t have a local mechanic and are visiting a garage for the first time, make sure that it is AAA or ASE certified.

Importance of Inspection Before Buying
Here are some reasons why a vehicle inspection is a step you can’t afford to skip:

  • Identify hidden problems: While an issue may not be evident to the untrained eye, a mechanic’s thorough inspection may reveal serious problems, from electrical concerns to frame damage.
  • Ensure a wise investment: An inspection may prevent you from buying a vehicle that will require costly repairs in the near future.
  • Provide peace of mind: Because it’s not fresh from the factory, used cars carry an inherent risk. An inspection by someone you trust can give you confidence that your selection is a smart one.

Refreshed and Reimagined

Building the 2023 ARIYA on Nissan’s all-electric vehicle platform granted designers free rein to think outside the box. This unbridled approach resulted in the current generation’s sleek, ultra-modern styling – complete with three vibrant full-body paint colors and six dual-tone combos.

Interactive voice controls put the latest tech within reach – even while your hands remain on the wheel! A simple “Hello Nissan” prompt brings the Alexa Built-In system to life, making it easy to access your favorite playlist, advanced navigation, weather forecasts, and more.

The 2023 Nissan ARIYA offers up to 304 miles of range on a single charge, with three charging methods available. A home wall unit is the simplest, but if you need to power up on-the-go, just plug into a public Combined Charging System (CCS) station. If there isn’t one nearby, temporarily utilize the 120-volt charging cable.

Electric Benefits

Zero gas consumption means zero tailpipe emissions – an attribute that not only delights Mother Nature but eco-friendly drivers! And because there’s no internal combustion engine or motor oil, you’ll have fewer maintenance services to keep track of. Forget about oil changes, spark plug replacements, and timing belt repairs – and remain on the road instead!

This electric crossover may also gain commuters access to the HOV or carpool lane – another big benefit for commuters!

The 2024 Nissan GT-R Supercar: Everything You Need To Know

The Nissan GT-R is known for its rich racing history, bringing power, style, and performance to the streets. In 2024, the Nissan GT-R supercar continues its legacy with its enhanced aerodynamics, breathtaking exterior, and sleek interior. Car enthusiasts everywhere will be vying for an opportunity to take this car on the road.

Nissan of Orangeburg is here to help you get behind the wheel of your dream supercar. Keep reading to learn more about the 2024 Nissan GT-R, then visit our lot in Orangeburg for a test drive. 

Brief History of The Nissan GT-R

The Nissan Skyline GT-R first hit the scene in 1968 as Nissan’s new built-for-performance touring car. The Skyline GT-R was meant to compete with factory racing cars produced by “the big 3” automakers in the U.S. The GT-R did just that and had 52 Japanese touring-car racing wins by 1972. 

In 1973, GT-R sales suffered due to the worldwide oil crisis and Nissan discontinued the GT-R that year after a full redesign of the coupe. Nissan resurrected the GT-R in 1989 as an all-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine performance coupe. The all-new GT-R went zero to 60 in under six seconds and put out 276 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. 

The 1989 GT-R once again took the Japanese racing world by storm, with 29 consecutive victories. This earned the GT-R the nickname, “Godzilla.” 

It wasn’t until 2008 that the GT-R hit the roads of the U.S. Nissan dropped Skyline from its name, and this new model held a twin-turbo V6, putting out 473 horsepower and giving other muscle cars a run for their money. With its unmatched handling, ability to grab the road, and exhilarating ride, the sleek GT-R has truly become a legendary performance vehicle. 

The 2024 Nissan GT-R: The Car That Keeps Improving 

The GT-R has proved one thing over the years: It only continues to improve. For 2024, Nissan has revised the GT-R’s dynamics in addition to other small improvements, while remaining true to its legendary, solid design. 


The Nissan GT-R is known for its innovative, aerodynamic design which has been finely tuned for 2024. The all-new, updated model includes a redesigned front fascia, a new front lip spoiler, and new canards, all coming together to add to the GT-R’s aggressive stance. On the rear, you’ll notice a new spoiler designed to increase downforce and reimagined rear bumpers to decrease drag, once again improving the aerodynamics of the GT-R. 

The GT-R T-Spec model is back in 2024 with a bold, standout design. It comes with special badging and outstanding 2-inch forged lightweight wheels. The T-Spec model also includes two exclusive exterior colors: Midnight Purple and Millennium Jade. 

On the track-focused GT-R NISMO is easily identifiable by its gold NISMO forged wheels, equipped with Nissan carbon ceramic brakes. The NISMO model is designed for line-tracking performance and sports a 600-horsepower engine that works together with the coupe’s front and rear limited slip for ultimate control on the road.


The 2024 Nissan GT-R is just as stacked with style on the inside as it is on the outside. You’ll enjoy sleek leather appointments, synthetic suede inserts, Mori Green trim, and quilted stitching. The interior of the all-new GT-R T-Spec is elevated and modern with unique badging and logos throughout the cabin. 

The GT-R comes standard with the NissanConnect infotainment system, including the 8-inch multi-touch display, Apple CarPlay, Nissan navigation, Bluetooth, SiriusXM Radio, and more. You’ll be able to access customizable screens to display vehicle data of your choice, such as oil temperature, G-force, turbocharger boost, transmission gear selection, and more. Plus, you can make your ride your own with dual-zone automatic climate control, active noise cancellation, heated front seats, and the Bose® 11-speaker audio system so your music will sound better than ever.

The 2024 GT-R gives you comfort and style on the inside while you enjoy the performance and control on the outside. 

Engineered for Performance:

The 2024 Nissan GT-R’s impressive 3.8-liter V6, twin-turbocharged, 24-valve engine is hand-assembled by takumi technicians. This powerful engine is rated at 565 horsepower with 467 lb-ft of torque. 

The GT-R’s engine has a standard titanium exhaust system and is powered by a first-rate all-wheel-drive system which can vary its front-to-rear torque split depending on your driving needs. With this system, you’ll enjoy an outstanding feel and performance during your drive.

The weight distribution of your GT-R is optimized by its rear-mounted, 6-speed, dual clutch transaxle, providing powerful downshifting. Plus, you’ll have paddle shifters mounted right on your steering wheel to give you manual control on the road.

The GT-R is known for its dynamic handling, and you can count on a smooth ride with the GT-R’s independent double wishbone front and independent multi-link rear suspensions. As the driver, you’ll be able to choose between three drive modes for suspension: Normal, Comfort, and R. These different modes will help you personalize each drive to your needs, so you can enjoy the GT-R’s sport like handling no matter your comfort level.

With the GT-R’s speed and handling, having best-in-class braking is important. The GT-R Premium model is equipped with a Nissan and Brembo® braking system utilizing six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers. The GT-R T-Spec model utilizes Brembo® brakes with the NISMO’s enlarged ceramic-carbon rotors.

Nissan’s E-4ORCE Tech Improves Traction and Stability 

Nissan’s engineers continue to push the boundaries, ushering in the future with exciting new technology. After enhancing their gas-powered line-up with the introduction of the world's first variable compression turbo engine, Nissan shone the spotlight on its electric and hybrid models with innovative technologies designed to increase efficiency and safety.

E-4ORCE (Electric 4-Cylinder Optimized Range and Efficiency) debuted in Japan, but is now available in the U.S. with the 2023 Nissan ARIYA. Developed to meet today’s drivers’ demands, E-4ORCE makes an eco-friendly ride more accessible to the masses – and boosts electric vehicle performance too!

Read on to learn more, then stop by Nissan of Orangeburg to test drive a new, energy efficient vehicle!

What is Nissan’s E-4ORCE Technology?

Aimed at enhancing its hybrid and electric powertrain capabilities, Nissan’s E-4ORCE is a

completely electric all-wheel-drive system. It includes advanced four-wheel drive technologies, chassis control technologies, and electrification technologies to provide a more agile, responsive drive.

This EV technology controls all four wheels, adapting intuitively according to current driving conditions. It calculates the specific driving force required to turn, speed up, and slow down in response to the driver's operation and road conditions. Then, it manages the wheels’ driving force using the front and rear motors as well as the brakes.

All-electric cars are powered by EV batteries, while hybrid models feature an electric motor that works in tandem with a gasoline-fueled internal combustion engine. Both benefit from E-4ORCE control technology, proving that you don’t have to sacrifice performance for efficiency!

The Benefits of E-4ORCE

Nissan’s E-4ORCE technologies provide drivers with a more seamless, enjoyable driving experience. For instance, when trekking up a steep hill, this four-wheel control technology adds power and torque. Plus, it enhances traction by directing torque to each wheel in response to current road conditions. Nissan’s E-4ORCE even increases stability using sensors that continuously monitor movement and adapt accordingly – a great perk when cruising at higher speeds or on uneven terrain!

There’s more! Combined with regenerative braking, Nissan E-4ORCE improves fuel economy for hybrid models to save you money at the pump. And because both hybrids and battery electric vehicles emit fewer greenhouse gasses and harmful pollutants, they’re a fantastic alternative to traditional gas-powered models!

Nissan Vehicles with E-4ORCE

Here in the U.S., Nissan E-4ORCE technology is only available in the 2023 Nissan ARIYA – expected to hit the market early this year! This EV technology will likely be available with more models in the future, so stay tuned for details!
