Weird name - nothing intelligent about the company.

Nevertheless, as a Nissan Sunny owner, I can recommend the Micra, Sunny & Terrano because:

- Their resale value sucks. That means, more car for your $$$
- Super reliability
- Excellent ride quality & comfort
- Each has a USP (Terrano = ride, Sunny = legroom, Micra = perfect for city + AT)

One mandatory requirement is having a competent independent garage on hand. The authorised dealerships suck. If you don't have this, don't touch them with a barge pole. You're better off with a safer brand in that case (Maruti, Hyundai etc.).

So basically, every locally built Nissan will qualify as the Micra was launched 7 years back .

Default Nissan India set to enter used car market

Nissan joins the bandwagon on manufacturers in the used car business.

Given the low volumes Nissan has and that it isn't a premium brand either, wonder what business rationale this has.

Nissan India revealed its entry into the used car business under name ‘Nissan Intelligence Choice’. The automaker’s used car business will offer a platform for customers owning multi-brand cars to exchange the same with a new Nissan or a Datsun vehicle. The company will begin its used car operations from ten cities including Noida, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Ludhiana, Jaipur, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata and Guwahati.

Interesting while not that "intelligent" as such. They are ready to exchange any old brand car for an exchange with a Nissan. Some points that come to my mind -
  1. Looking at the sales numbers that they are making, the staff at the pre-owned business will have plenty time to be active on social media.
  2. They are ready to exchange any brand car, then sell it with a warranty upto 2 years/40k kms. Wonder how they'll manage this properly + manage the servicing of these multi-brand cars at their service stations. Customers will have to have hearts made of titanium to take this gamble.
  3. It will be pretty costly for Nissan to honour the warranty that they are offering on cars that can be as much as 6 years 11 months 29 days old already!
  4. I don't think this will show them any increase in sales of new cars.
  5. They should instead invest this (and a truckload more) amount of money to revitalize their product portfolio. Brands like Isuzu are going to overtake them in sales in some time otherwise!

Just called 8433730058 kailash who is in charge of their team in Mumbai but he said they currently have no stock in these pre-owned cars! They do not have an outlet in Pune yet (as mentioned by Pramod 9983683699) and would probably open one next month. Olx and other sites maybe the only option for now.
