Why Buy a Newton Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

We know there are a lot of options when considering a vehicle purchase. New, used, certified pre-owned–it can get a little confusing. For most people, the most important piece of the car-buying puzzle is price, right? You want to know you are getting the best deal. At Newton Nissan, we want you to get the best deal as well the best experience possible. However, there’s more than just price & experience involved in your deal. The vehicle itself must be in the best condition possible, especially used or pre-owned vehicles. Keep reading for more information on how we re-condition our Newton Certified Pre-Owned vehicles.

What work goes into a Newton Certified Pre-ONewton Certified Pre-Ownedwned Vehicle?

The bottom line of every certified pre-owned vehicle is the 170-point inspection, ensuring that every inch of the car is inspected. If repairs are needed, we will cover these. The following (and more) are covered in the 170-point inspection:

  • Air Bags/Seat Belts
  • Unibody/Frame
  • Tires and Wheels
  • Engine/Fuel
  • Electrical System
  • Suspension/Steering
  • Road Test

During this inspection, we decide what needs to be repaired. For example, if the tire treads are extremely worn down, we will go ahead and put new tires on the vehicle. During your visit with us, we will go over these details with you to make sure you know what work was needed and how we took care of the vehicle — so that you don’t immediately have service bills on top of your purchase! Please note that we do our best, but we do not claim perfection or that a vehicle will never have problems. Again, we will be very transparent up front about any issues we saw. Don’t hesitate to ask us questions!

Newton Pre-Owned

What’s included with a Newton Pre-Owned Certified Vehicle?

In addition to the work that goes into re-conditioning a used vehicle, we certify some of our used inventory so that you know you are getting even more value in your purchase with us. This Newton Certified Program includes:

 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Warranty*

SiriusXM Satellite Radio with 3-month trial subscription

Optional Extended Protection Plan

CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™

At Newton Nissan of Gallatin, we take pride in our used inventory. We don’t just give them a car wash, a once-over, and park them out front. We make sure they are thoroughly ready to go before you make your decision and drive off our lot! Let us help you find your next Newton Certified Pre-Owned vehicle today!

 

 

 

**Please note: our cheaper, pre-auction line cars undergo an inspection to a lesser degree to keep them affordable for customers looking for a more inexpensive option.

What are Pre-Auction Line (PAL) Cars?

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

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.

Pre-Auction Line

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.

Have more questions about our Pre-Auction Line vehicles? One of our sales team would love to help you. You can chat with them below, call, or email. Please let us know how we can best serve you! We are here to give you the simplest & best car-buying experience in Middle Tennessee!

Things to Know About the New 2019 Nissan Altima

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018
2019 Nissan Altima

2019 Nissan Altima

The all-new 2019 Nissan Altima is here!

We’re excited about the launch of this all-new redesign of the classic Nissan sedan we know and love! From exterior, to the engine, to the interior–this Altima has you covered. To get you excited too (it’ll be here soon!), we wanted to give you our top-five things you need to know about the 2019 Nissan Altima.

Here are the top things you need to know about it:

Redesign

The new Altima has been truly overhauled for a sleeker, sportier feel. Check out this head-to-head comparison with the 2018 Altima:

2019 Nissan AltimaThis sixth-generation Altima now has a deeper Nissan-signature V-motion grille, a floating roof like others in the Nissan lineup, and sharper lines. In fact, the new Altima is 1.1 inches lower in height than previous models. It culminates to a very fresh makeover for one of the most well-known and well-loved Nissan models.

Smart Technology

The 2019 Nissan Altima is leading the way in its class with the addition of the available ProPilot Assist. This is available on the SV, SL, and Platinum trim levels. ProPilot Assist was included on 2018 models like the Rogue; read more about that feature here. Also available on these trims is the new Rear Automatic Braking (RAB). RAB helps the driver detect stationary objects when backing up, and, if necessary, will apply the break to avoid a collision.

Three features are standard on all trims:

  1. Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)
  2. Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (I-FCW), and
  3. Intelligent Driver Alertness (I-DA)

All of these combine to create a 360 safety shield around the 2019 Nissan Altima drivers and passengers, as Nissan continues to forge forward in vehicle safety technology.

Things the competition doesn’t have – that the Altima does

At the end of the day, how does it compare to the competition? Check out this video for a review on 5 things the 2019 Nissan Altima has that other sedans do not. For quick reference, these five things are:

  1. Available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive
  2. AVC Turbo Engine – the first production-ready in the world (see more information in the video)
  3. Standard Apple Car Play & Android Auto
  4. Concierge service – a free 3-year plan to order flowers, book a restaurant, reserve tickets, and more!
  5. 2 USB-C charging points, which is a newer port that is beginning to be used more regularly as it charges more quickly than a standard USB (but those are included as well!)

9th Annual Student Car Giveaway!

9th Annual Student Car Giveaway

Good Grades = Free Car

Madelyn Griffith won a brand new car last month because of her good grades at Merrol Hyde Magnet School in Hendersonville, TN. Her first words at the microphone were, “GO HAWKS!” to her classmates in the audience. She expressed that she was really grateful and shocked, saying, “I literally almost didn’t come, because I thought I wouldn’t win.” She and her sister were attending a large youth conference at Lipscomb, but they gave up a few hours of camp to come to the 9th Annual Student Car Giveaway at Newton Nissan in Gallatin, TN. 

The two sisters and their parents were the very first of almost 100 families to enter the showroom, get a good look at the Nissan Versa, and enjoy free food and beverages while waiting for the big giveaway to begin. Her sister enjoyed playing some of the trivia that opened the event’s giveaways, and won some candy! They thought that’s the only thing they would leave with that night. Little did they know! After winning, Madelyn made sure her sister understood that, “This is MY car, not yours!”

Student Car Giveaway

About the Annual Student Car Giveaway

The annual Newton Nissan Car Giveaway event is open to all students enrolled in a Tennessee high school. Since the program started in 2009, Newton Nissan has given away ten cars to students in the Nashville area. Students enter the contest by bringing in their report card from the most recent school year. Students increase their chances of winning by making good grades, since they receive one entry per “A” on their report card.

About the Grand Prize

The grand prize was a 2018 Nissan Versa, valued at $15,330. “Newton Nissan pays for both the car and sales taxes, so Madelyn doesn’t have to pay anything for her new car,” says Mike Abbondanza, Newton Nissan’s Vice President. We at Newton Nissan are more than happy to give back to our community, particularly our students, in this way!

We hope to see you & your student next year at our 10th Annual Student Car Giveaway!

Newton Nissan Gives: Gallatin Shalom Zone

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018
Newton Nissan Gives

Newton Nissan Gives

Newton Nissan is committed to the community that surrounds it. From work with Mustard Seed Communities to giving oil changes to local fundraising auctions, we are always looking for ways to give back. One of the organizations that reached out to us last year for sponsorship opportunities was Gallatin Shalom Zone. This wonderful organization, right here in Gallatin, is dedicated to improving our community by engaging Sumner County residents “in the work of healing, peace, reconciliation, justice, and love.”

Towards this end, Gallatin Shalom Zone has transformed a former high school (Union High School), into the Union High Resource Center. This centralized location serves our community as a meeting place for individuals as well as organizations to foster positive and healthy community development. Through programs such as ESL, after school tutoring, camps, and more, the center promotes a safe, healthy, and happy environment for kids and adults alike.  In time, their goals are to see more children graduate high school and for our families to grow stronger.

This year, Newton Nissan joined their mission in sponsoring their 8th Annual Tribute Dinner, which seeks to honor with awards members in our community who are making a difference. Three awards are given at this dinner: The Heritage Award, The Leimentoll/Martin Humanitarian Award, and The Hal Hooper Philanthropy Award.

The Heritage Award will be presented to First Baptist Winchester. This award is given to a group or organization who are involved in the community in the spirit of the Shalom; First Baptist will receive this award for long-term, outstanding, and dedicated involvement in the community.

The Leimentoll/Martin Humanitarian Award will be presented to Bill Puryear. This award recognizes character, strength, and unwavering integrity and compassion. Bill will receive this award for his steadfast involvement in many schools, organizations, churches, and individuals’ lives.

The Hal Hooper Philanthropy Award will be presented to R.C.O. Holding Company/R.C. Owen III. This award showcases those whose donations have improved the community with sustainable change. R.C.O. Holding Company/R.C. Owen III receives this award for years of support given to the community by the company and past president.

You can still get involved and join them for this special tribute dinner on Thursday, March 15. Reservations are required. Contact the Shalom office at 615-442-7575 to reserve your seat! Tickets are $50/each; $400/table of 8.

We hope that together we can celebrate the work of Gallatin Shalom Zone and improve our community, one life at a time.

 

 

Note: for all donation or sponsorship requests, please contact us.
