Keep Your Car Ready With These Fluid Tips From Coast Nissan

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, October 16th, 2017 at 5:49 PM

During the hot summer months, you rely on water to keep you hydrated and cool. Water keeps the body running cleanly and efficiently, and it is important to drink plenty throughout the day. Your Nissan also relies on many liquids such as coolant and transmission fluid in order to run smoothly. It’s important to keep the levels of these fluids from dropping too low, and they must be regularly monitored. Fortunately, Coast Nissan has a few tips you can use to quickly examine each fluid level, or you can visit our San Luis Obispo car dealership and have them examined by our trained professionals.

Oil

Oil is the lifeblood of the engine, and keeps it lubricated and operating at maximum efficiency. Oil gets dirty with regular use and must be changed around every 3,000 miles. In order to check any fluid, first make sure the car is parked on level ground and the engine is cold. For the oil, find and remove the dipstick and wipe it clean. After, re-insert and remove the stick, then consult the markings on the dipstick.

Coolant

Coolant is always important to keep an eye on, but is even more vital during the summer. Your engine can easily overheat and cause expensive damage if the coolant suddenly runs out while the engine is already hot. In most cars, it is stored in a clear plastic container by the radiator, and should have markings indicating the recommended levels.

Brake Fluid

If you notice that your brakes seem less effective or less responsive, the brake fluid may be running low. Like the coolant, it is generally stored in a clear reserve, and can be easily replaced. However, these symptoms may also indicate a leak or that you need new brake pads, so bring your car into Coast Nissan for expert Nissan service and a thorough inspection of your car.

Explore These Family Friendly Golf Courses Near SLO

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, October 2nd, 2017 at 5:44 PM

While golfing is a fun activity and a great way to relieve all the stress that has built up during the work week, playing a long course can take time and often is expensive. Additionally, longer courses and holes can be especially difficult if you haven’t golfed in a while or simply have younger kids who want to play. Instead of heading out for a four to five hour game on 18 holes, there are several smaller courses around San Luis Obispo, CA where you can relax and enjoy a fun round of golf with your kids. Here are a few courses that Coast Nissan recommends for family fun.

Mr. Putters Putt Putt

Even if you are a serious golfer, it’s hard to not enjoy a game of putt putt, especially with all the interesting courses and ease of play. All you need is a putter and a ball and a couple of friends, and it’s a blast trying to navigate the wonderfully decorated and designed holes. The course is clean, the staff members are friendly and they are even installing a pizza kitchen so you can have a bite to eat after playing your round. Family members of all ages will enjoy this activity, and it never hurts to work on your short game.

Laguna Lake Golf Course

For a golf trip that lies in between putt putt and an eighteen-hole adventure, try the executive-length (par three) golf course down at Laguna Lake. It has been rated highly, has one of the best maintained layouts in the area and offers scenic views along the way. The par three classification means that each hole is relatively short and easy to play, while still offering a fun experience for just beginning and accomplished golfers.

Much like you need a golf cart when golfing, you also need a reliable car when heading to work or dropping the kids off at school. Coast Nissan offers affordable deals on new and used cars along with top quality Nissan service so you can be satisfied in your long-term investment.

Find Out Whether You Should Buy Or Lease A New Car At Coast Nissan

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 25th, 2017 at 5:42 PM

One of the biggest questions for any new car owner is whether to buy or lease. Leasing rose in popularity during the 1980s as many people didn’t want to be locked down to a single car over many years. There are advantages to both, and our friendly sales team at Coast Nissan will be happy to help you determine which is the best option. Here is just a brief overview on each and their relative benefits from our San Luis Obispo car dealership.

Buying A Car

There is a certain pride that comes with owning a car, and by purchasing a vehicle you can save money in the long run as long as it remains well serviced. While you may have higher monthly payments, the payments only last over a finite period. Once the loan on the car has been paid off, you fully own the vehicle and with regular maintenance, can make it last for many more years. Buying a car is a great option for people who love a particular model or style of car, or simply want the economic freedom that comes with owning a vehicle.

Benefits Of Leasing

Many people can’t stand to just drive one car for years on end or want the new features and technologies that come with new cars each year. Leases also generally have low monthly payments and less of a down payment. Your warranty covers the majority of repair costs, and once the contract is finished, you can move on to a brand-new release or change vehicle types.

Ultimately, buying a car is more of a long-term investment than leasing, and will reward you down the line. However, a lease can be perfect for the time when you are saving up money to put a down payment on a new car and prepare for the higher monthly bills. Be sure to stop by our coastal Nissan dealership for the answers to any other questions you may have and to find the best deals on new and used Nissans.

Charge Your Car For Free With A New Leaf Purchase From Coast Nissan

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 18th, 2017 at 4:58 PM

Throughout countries like the United Kingdom and the United States, electric car charging infrastructure is slowly expanding and being offered in more places. Much like traditional cars need gas stations, in order to make longer road trips electric cars need charging stations that they can visit to “refuel”. Companies like Tesla, BMW and Nissan have also worked to vastly increased the number of these stations available to driver and to speed up the charging process. Thanks to Nissan’s No Charge To Charge program, owners of the Nissan Leaf can now explore farther than ever, so head over to your local San Luis Obispo car dealer, Coast Nissan, to learn more about this program.

The Rise Of Charging Stations

One of the big concerns for many people thinking about making the switch to electric cars is the limited range. Early models could only go for less than 100 miles without needed more energy, but with new advancements such as those found on the Nissan Leaf, electric cars can easily achieve a 200 mile range. This distance is more than enough for your average work day, but planning longer adventures used to be more difficult. Now with thousands of charging stations popping up around the country, it’s easy to find a place to recharge.

No Charge To Charge

The No Charge To Charge program is free to all new Nissan Leaf buyers for two years after purchase. The Nissan charging stations are fast and powerful DC chargers that can provide a full charge in about 30 minutes, and their efficiency is only improving as the technology becomes more advanced. Nissan predicts that by 2020, electric charging stations will outnumber traditional gas stations in many cities and some countries like the UK, as they are more affordable and energy efficient. The 2018 Nissan Leaf debuts at coastal Nissan dealerships in early September and is sure to be one of the hottest cars of the year. Stop by to test drive one soon and learn more about how it can save you money.

Get Ahead Of Car Troubles With Service From Coast Nissan

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 11th, 2017 at 4:52 PM

Having your car break down on a busy highway or in the middle of nowhere is a major inconvenience. From having to stop and fix the problem or calling a repair truck to help get you back on the road, it can take hours before your car is ready to drive again. Fortunately, many of these breakdowns are preventable with a little foresight and Nissan service from Coast Nissan. Much like you go to the doctor or dentist to detect problems ahead of time, come into our San Luis Obispo car dealership and have your Nissan checked for these preventable problems.

Dead Battery

Car batteries are often forgotten about, as they generally last for about four to five years. Having to call someone to jump start the car can be difficult for everyone, especially on a busy road or highway, so have your battery periodically checked to ensure it is holding a good charge. During an oil change is the perfect time to have our experts check.

Tire Troubles

An improperly inflated tire is more prone to punctures and blowout that can take your car out of commission. By regularly monitoring the tire pressure, you can avoid putting your tires at greater risk as well as keep your gas mileage from dropping.

Leaks

Your car relies on a number of fluids in order to run at maximum efficiency, and it is easy to not notice an internal leak in your car. Have Coast Nissan examine your car for any potential leaks or low levels of fluids in your car during your next service appointment.

These conditions are easily detectable and preventable if they are caught ahead of time, so schedule a regular checkup for your car at Coast Nissan. Our expert technicians will get your car patched up and on the road in no time, and you can even schedule an appointment on your time on our website.

Our vans are designed to make parenting easy, from the entertainment features to award winning safety measures. Stop by Coast Nissan in beautiful San Luis Obispo, CA to find exceptional deals on these back to school powerhouses.

The front seats are heated and designed to be fatigue reducing, making those long road trips easier and less stressful. The engine is finely balanced between power and efficiency, offering 27 mpg highway and enough acceleration to make driving always feel smooth.

Nissan NV Passenger

While it may not look like your typical van, the NV Passenger makes up for that with its efficiency and practicality. It has even more storage and seating area than the Quest, up to 200 cubic feet, and the configuration of the seats is much more flexible. The Passenger is ideal for small business owners such as caterers, as you can easily fit any food and supplies you need for your next job. It also makes a great camping van, and has ample room for all your gear and necessary equipment.

Organize And Plan Your Nissan Car Service With Coast Nissan

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 at 4:27 PM

If you take a look at your Nissan’s car manual, you will find  many service dates and mileage points which can be difficult to keep up with. There are several methods you can use to keep up with this schedule, including setting reminders on your phone or documenting your mileage each day. Fortunately, Coast Nissan can bundle many of your service appointment together and get you on a more efficient schedule, and this way you only need to remember these two main service areas. Stop by our Nissan San Luis Obispo service center to see how our experts can keep your car running smoothly.

Oil Change

Oil acts as the lifeblood of your car, so it’s critical to stay true to your recommended oil change dates. It keeps your engine components lubricated and operating efficiently, and dirty oil can cause permanent engine damage and loss of fuel efficiency. While the oil is changed, you can have other fluid levels, such as the coolant, checked and refilled if needed, along with other smaller components such as the air filter.

Brake Pads And Tires

If oil is the lifeblood of the vehicle, then the tires are the arms and legs that the car relies upon to keep moving. Both your tires and brakes pads wear down over time, as the pads erode closer to the metal strip and the tire treads become thinner. Both are critical to driving safely and efficiently, so have our service experts examine your wheels during each oil change or no later than every 20,000 miles.

With our Nissan service, you can extend the life of your vehicle and get more out of your investment. The car will feel better to drive and you can be confident in your safety, so head over to Coast Nissan today.
