We all like options, right? At Newton Nissan of Gallatin, we want to give our customers options in every aspect: vehicles, financing, salesperson, and more. But of course the most important choice is the vehicle! We stock over 500 cars at any given time, new and used, so you can have a fun & simple shopping journey finding the perfect vehicle for you and your family. For new Nissan models, we stock a multitude of trim levels and packages that meet your needs, whether with the smartest technology or the safest features. For pre-owned vehicles, we have a couple of different options:

  • Used Cars — some of these might still have their manufacturer warranty, some might have our certified warranty
  • Newton Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles —  we back these with our own warranty, which you can read about here
  • Pre-Auction Line (PAL) cars — these are sold “as is,” with no warranty (keep reading for more information)

Pre-Auction Line vehicles, or “PAL” for short, are available to the public for a limited time before being released to independent dealerships. A free Carfax® report is still available for these vehicles. PAL vehicles fall outside of Newton Nissan’s traditional inventory offerings and are sold “as-is,” without a warranty.

FAQ’s about Pre-Auction Line Vehicles

Are PAL cars still inspected?

Yes, PAL cars still receive an inspection; however, repairs or service work are generally not performed. This is to keep the vehicle as affordable as possible.

How do I know if the vehicle I’m interested in is a PAL car?

Pal Cars are priced more affordably and typically have higher mileage. Additionally, during your time at the dealership, we will go over important notes about the vehicle’s condition and have you sign documents that state you understand that the vehicle is sold “as is,” meaning you take full responsibility for any service work that the vehicle may need because it has not been reconditioned like our other used vehicles have been.

What happens if something goes wrong with my PAL car after I leave?

Once you sign the agreement and purchase the vehicle, you release Newton Nissan South from all liability for any issues with the vehicle. However, we are happy to help in any way we can. Our certified technicians will take care of you, and you will receive a discounted labor rate for the work needed for your vehicle.
