There are a lot of positive aspects and attributes that one can say about Nissan as a manufacturer. The technological innovations and reputation of being reliable have both accompanied Nissan since its inception, all the way to the present day. Nissan’s long-standing commitment to quality and dependability is such that purchasing a used one will afford you many of the same attributes of an older model. Sure, there’s no shortage of used car dealerships. Champaign, IL has plenty, but the high standard of excellence that you’ll find at Illini Nissan continually outshines the competition. Just as Nissan has always gone above and beyond expectation to deliver unsurpassed quality to the thousands of drivers who depend on them daily, Illini Nissan believes in holding ourselves to the same level of excellence for the benefit of the people who rely on us to provide them with affordable and reliable vehicles.
One of the misconceptions that befall many consumers is that anything that possesses a high level of quality is unaffordable and reserved for a particular income bracket that might not necessarily be the one they belong to. At Illini Nissan, we want nothing more than to dispel this notion permanently. Ever since the first automobiles began rolling off the assembly line, their purpose has been to benefit the average consumer and allow them to possess a quality of life that was previously unavailable.
This is something that we believe very strongly in, and to this end, we have our used lot grouped by price range. No hidden agendas, no catches, no surprises. Just the vehicle you need at a price you can afford. Unlike the other dealerships in the area, we categorize these vehicles in very price-specific groupings. This allows you to shop perfectly within the confines of a budget. These groupings are some of the most specific you’ll come across, with categories such as “Under 15K”, “Between 15K and 25K”, “Between 20K and 25K”, and so on.
By grouping our used vehicles in this way, we allow you to zero in on offerings that are pre-selected to your price range. The variety of used vehicles that we have on our lot pairs with these selected price groupings to ensure you can get out of your dreams and into your car.
By now, you might be thinking, “okay, price grouping is appealing, but what about the variety? What does Illini Nissan have to offer me?” This is a reasonable question that’s deserving of an honest answer. When you look at the lineup of any manufacturer, you’ll notice that they tend to offer consumers a wide variety of options that vary depending upon their individual needs. Of course, Nissan is no exception to this practice. As an extension of the brand, we at Illini Nissan believe in placing just as much emphasis on variety as we do on affordability and quality.
One of the best used vehicle options that are available from Nissan is the Frontier. Aside from being one of the best options for a pickup that rivals Ford, Chevrolet, and Ram, the Frontier has another contributing factor that makes it one of the best vehicles to purchase used: deprecation. You see, the minute a new vehicle is driven off the lot after being sold, it begins to depreciate. This is bad news for a new car buyer because the car loses value quickly at the start, but great news for a used car buyer because you will pay significantly less. This means you’ll be able to get your hands on the same quality that the competition offers, for almost half the price. Plus, Nissan vehicles are reliable, which means even when you buy used, you are going to get a great vehicle that lasts.
Of course, there’s much more to our used inventory than the Nissan Frontier. If you’re in the market for a vehicle that’s as versatile as it is cost-effective, then the Altima will provide you with the best of both worlds. Any vehicle you purchase bears a similarity to making an investment, and if you’re expecting to get a return on what you put in, then the Altima will reward you handsomely. When properly maintained, an Altima can last anywhere from 200,000 to 300,000 miles, which equates to an approximate life span of well over a decade, depending upon how much you plan on driving. You’ll also be saving on your insurance premiums, as four-door sedans are among the cheapest vehicles to insure.
If a sedan or pickup isn’t currently on your list of needs, or you just need a little bit of extra storage for those days that warrant it, then the Nissan Rogue can be one of the most accommodating options. The Rogue, like so many other compact SUVs, combines all the advantages of a larger sized vehicle, such as towing ability and storage capacity, with the scaled-down size that make them easy to maneuver within the city limits and won’t gobble up your life savings at the pump.
Like many of the choices you’ll make that have a direct impact on the life you live, picking an ideal vehicle for your wants and needs isn’t a linear process and is one that’s entirely subjective. You need to take into consideration how much you drive in a week and what your leisurely activities consist of. Things like your commute to and from work and how many people (or animals) you have to ferry around on a semi-regular basis.
Also, prioritizing what’s most important to you is a major factor when evaluating a vehicle for purchase. Nissan has always put a great deal of emphasis on breaking out of the box as far as outfitting its vehicles with a wide variety of safety and driving assistance features goes. What else would you expect from the same company that once introduced talking vehicles?
The staff at Illini Nissan are some of the most knowledgeable and personable you’ll ever come across. If you have questions, concerns, or you’re having difficulty picking the right vehicle, we’re here to help you make an informed decision. After all, we’re drivers, too.
