Nissan is adding the all-electric LEAF to its certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles program beginning in September to provide years of quality assurance to second owners.

To qualify for the CPO program, a Nissan LEAF must have less than 60,000 miles, be less than five years from its original in-service date, have a clear CARFAX vehicle history report, and pass a 167-point comprehensive quality inspection. The vehicle must also have a minimum of nine bars of battery capacity, out of 12 total, as represented on the vehicle battery capacity level gauge, Nissan said.

According to Nissan, the company currently offers an 8-year/100,000-mile (whichever comes first) battery warranty coverage protecting against defects in materials and workmanship and 5 year/60,000 mile (whichever comes first) coverage for battery capacity loss below nine bars of capacity as shown by the vehicle's battery capacity level gauge. Nissan will also extend the electric vehicle (EV) system and powertrain warranty coverage to 7 years/100,000 miles (whichever comes first).
