What are Pre-Auction Line (PAL) Cars?

We all like options, right? At Newton Nissan South, 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 used 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 Motor Group’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 high 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.

The Newton Advantage | Frequently Asked Questions

Newton Advantage

Starting in 2019, Newton Nissan South launched the Newton Advantage, a new benefit of purchasing your new Nissan with us here in Shelbyville, just a short drive north of Nashville. We offer this because we want to offer the best to our customers, who are more like family to us.

Included in the Newton Advantage is a 2-year Carefree Maintenance Package and a Lifetime Warranty.

Here are some frequently asked questions about the Newton Advantage:

What vehicles qualify for the Newton Advantage?

The Newton Advantage applies to all new vehicle purchases. We also have a Newton Certified Pre-Owned warranty on select used vehicles.

How long is the “lifetime” warranty really good for?

The Lifetime Warranty is valid for as long as you own the vehicle. You simply must return to our service center every 5 years for a free inspection. The Carefree Maintenance plan is for 24 months (or 30,000 miles), which gives you 4 oil changes, tire rotations, lube, and filter changes.

How much does it cost?

The Newton Advantage is absolutely free. We want to be your Nissan dealership for life, not just as a customer, but as our family & friends.

Where am I covered?

The Carefree Maintenance Plan requires that you get your oil changes & tire rotations here at our service center in Shelbyville, which is only a short drive from Murfreesboro, Franklin, and Manchester. You can trust our Nissan-certified technicians and enjoy free coffee, snacks, and WiFi while you wait.

However, there is no requirement to get your car’s service for the Lifetime Warranty done here. Just follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance plan and keep all your records.

Can the Lifetime Warranty be transferred?

No. The Lifetime Warranty expires when your vehicle is sold, traded, or deemed a total loss.

What exactly is covered?

The following components, parts, and labor are covered: Engine, Transmission, Transfer Case, Drive Axle, and Seals & Gaskets.

Some restrictions do apply, so ask your service adviser for more details on exactly what is and what is not covered.

Have other questions? Please call us for more information. We look forward to speaking to you more about the Newton Advantage soon!

The Valuable 2018 Nissan Versa

First-time buyer? Here’s why the 2018 Nissan Versa is worth a look.

2018 Nissan Versa

Affordable Value

The 2018 Nissan Versa, no matter what model or edition you choose, stays priced well under $20,000. But it won’t feel that way, with options ranging from chrome details to a leather-wrapped steering wheel to a rear view monitor. If you choose to forego additional options and packages, the base price will continue to drop. That is primarily why this is a great first car! No matter which options or trims you choose, the Versa will remain an affordable value. Here at Newton Nissan South, we have many different available options for you!

Spacious Interior

2018 Nissan Versa

Standard on the Versa is a spacious interior–with 90.2 cubic feet of space, including several inches more legroom in the rear than in other comparable sedans. The trunk volume itself measures almost 15 cubic feet. Couple this with the ability to lay down the back seats in a 60/40 split, and the space increases, allowing for more cargo room. The Versa proves that a smaller sedan does not have to equal small space!

Essential Features

2018 Nissan Versa

The Versa might seem simple by today’s common standards of luxury and intelligent features. However, it has all the essential features for staying connected: AM/FM radio, USB and auxiliary ports for music and charging, and hands-free Bluetooth connection. It also keeps standard essential safety features: airbags, anti-lock breaks, and tire pressure monitoring. Even more features–including a 5-in. LED display scene with rear-view camera–are available on the affordable SV Special Edition upgrade (pictured above).  Add this to the already trustworthy Nissan brand, as well as the service available here at Newton Nissan South, and we’ve got you covered in a car you can feel good about purchasing!

Come see us today, and test drive the 2018 Nissan Versa for yourself!
