Nissan’s Scratch Shield

Friday, May 27th, 2016

 Scratch Shield

A clear coat that is more robust when compared to its competitors and will leave your vehicle looking better, longer can be had with Nissan’s Scratch Shield technology. Clear coats enhance the external beauty of a car. Scratch shield is efficient at hiding scratches that are very fine and reinstates the car back to its original form or nearly undetectably close to it. Nissan has announced to continue its expansion of Scratch Shield all across the world. Scratch shied is marketed as a self-healing clear coat which can save on costs down the road in maintaining your Nissan’s appearance.

The main feature of a Scratch Shield is that once applied, the car appears to have scratches that are five times lesser than a conventional clear coat painted car. Scratches that are as old as a week or new are successfully masked by the Scratch Shield technology.

The structural component of the Scratch Shield includes an exclusive resin which is highly elastic in combination with the clear coat. This improves the flexibility of the paint and strength depending on the varying resin density in the mixture.

Self-repair of the paint is blocked when the scratches are so deep that the clear coat bonds are broken or in case of clear coat, peeled off. The time taken to self- repair post application of Scratch Shield is temperature and scratch depth dependent. In the case of deep scratches, time taken to restore may be a week or more. Nissan is extending the concept of self-healing to phone cases as well.

To get a coat of Scratch Shield on your Nissan car, and keep it looking new longer, visit Coast Nissan

Nissan’s Quick Comfort Seat Heater

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Quick Comfort Seat Heater

Apart from being a statement of luxury, heated seats are therapeutic. They reduce fatigue and help in relaxation by improving blood circulation. The Quick comfort seat heater in Nissan vehicles are intelligently optimized to vary temperature and location setting depending on the time post activation of the heater. As a result the time taken to warm the seats is reduced and comfort is prolonged.

The heater density of the seats is optimized based on scientific data from the Design department of Kyushu University. The result is a comfortable seat that transports you to a blanketed world of relaxation. During the initial heating phase, the region around the posterior and knees are activated first followed by the thighs and hip region. By splitting the heat activation, the time taken to enjoy the warmth of the seat is reduced by 30%. The seats are heated in less than seven minutes as compared to the 10 minutes taken by conventional heaters.

Each seat part is optimized for the density of the heating ratio in the heater lines. The heater line density is greatly reduced for the knee and posterior region as the sensation of heat is felt sooner. Additionally, the line density is increased for the thigh and hip regions. The result is a seat that is temperature balanced without the need for the addition of new controls and added cost for heating purposes.

Visit or contact Coast Nissan to experience the Nissan’s Quick comfort seat heater.

Nissan’s Mode Control Design Technology (NODAL Mount)

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Mode Control Design Technology

Nissan has always concentrated on giving passengers an enjoyable and secure driving experience in all kinds of road conditions.

The automaker undertakes the rigid vehicle bodies’ development and reduction of weight. Sometimes, the vehicle bodies may turn out to be vulnerable to vibration due to reduction of weight. So, they took into consideration the vehicle deformation mode in case it vibrates and built a comfortable body by controlling the deformation.

Thoroughly taking into account the deformation vibration mode and using that feature – they worked on this technology and the result is what Nissan called Mode Control Design Technology (Nodal Mount). It facilitates a comfortable and smooth drive always without any kind of disturbance by shake or sound.

The Mode Control Design Technology (Nodal Mount) technology has recognized the co-achievement of drive comfort and weight reduction.

The fundamental characteristic of a comfortable car body is reduced vibration against any input force. However, the counter-action for this may be achieved with extra mass. On the contrary, there’s always a motionless point known as ‘node’. Comfort can be enhanced by designing the vehicle body in such a way that input force is applied to this specific node.

Nissan achieved this drive comfort by researching the ideal body deformation mode at times of vibration and analyzed it. Nissan’s new Mode Control Design Technology ensures a pleasurable driving experience, which aims at realizing an unparalleled level of comfort and assurance.

Get more info about Nissan’s Mode Control Design Technology and also test drive any of the models at Coast Nissan.

Nissan’s Intelligent Seatbelts

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

Intelligent Seatbelts

Nissan’s Intelligent Seatbelts add more to the already existing safety features of its cars. It can enhance the functionality of seat belts.

The new intelligent seat belt comes integrated with a winding device (a motorized retractor), which assists in improving the safety feeling. It also feels more comfortable when worn and adds more to the sense of hospitality.

When the driver opens the car door, this winding device gets activated automatically and feeds the belt. The new feature loosens the belt and simultaneously the belt guide on the side of the door is inclined ahead by a spring so that passengers can easily grab it when putting the belt on. At times of abrupt skidding or steering, the belt gets wound up in order to hold the occupant safety, thus enhancing safety.

The motor functions by extending the tongue to the front passenger and the driver. When the belt is worn, it consumes additional belt webbing and assists in controlling the fit. On unfastening, the belt gets pulled into storage automatically. The tight function of the system assists in offering the front passenger and the driver safe feeling during abrupt maneuvers and skids.

Nissan integrates its Intelligent Seatbelts on coupes with B pillar set moderately to the rear. The automaker has previously commercialized a winding device for the pre-crush belts, which wind up the safety belt while braking suddenly to safeguard the passenger. The company also has plans to add new software to the winding device.

Nissan’s Hydraulic Body Motion Control

Monday, May 16th, 2016

 Hydraulic Body Motion Control

Hydraulic Body Motion Control – HBMC is Nissan’s new suspension technology particularly designed for full-size SUVs to assist in balancing on-road ride comfort and driving performance with off-road ability. The technology was used first in Nissan’s Patrol and later in Infiniti QX.

Nissan’s HBMC helps decrease body lean when turning for a more comfortable drive. Using hydraulic cylinders situated at the shock absorbers, it modifies roll stiffness by permitting fluid transfer between the right and left sides of the car via passive weight transfer at times of normal driving.

The technology features two hydraulic systems linked by cross-link pipes to the hydraulic cylinders of the four-wheel independent suspension. This absorbs the bumps on the street and helps in reducing the body lean while cornering. It assists in minimizing fluctuation of view of passengers on board and gives a comfortable drive. It doesn’t need a source of power as in the case of other similar systems and so there’s no compromise with its fuel efficiency.

Fluid present in the two external wheel hydraulic cylinders circulates to the accumulator and increases the roll stiffness of the suspension. It compromises the centrifugal force, decreasing the level of sinking on the outer side of the car and assisting to reduce the occupant variation of view.

The suspension for individual wheel increases or falls as per conditions of the road, absorbing the vibrations that are caused due to off-road holes and bumps.

Get an idea of how Hydraulic Body Motion Control works and how it feels at Coast Nissan.

What you need to know when buying a used Nissan?

Friday, May 13th, 2016

Nissan 2

Japanese car maker Nissan Motor Company has become one of the leading brands for reliable vehicles. Although most people would prefer to buy a brand new car, used cars are not a bad idea if you are a little tight on cash and do not want to invest heavily in a new vehicle. Nissan has maintained a reputation of designing very durable and reliable vehicles. Even if these cars are over a decade old, they are still in excellent running condition. However, there are a few aspects you will need to focus on when you are considering buying a used Nissan.

First things first, you need to check the performance of Nissan. When you find a used Nissan available for sale, read up on what the car’s specifications are. Learn about the engine, power delivery, and transmission it offers. When you test-drive the car, you can gauge if it is in its best running condition. Consult a professional mechanic with the car for a more detailed assessment.

The fuel economy of a vehicle is also one of its biggest selling points. A car’s mileage would have decreased over time, but not too much. A very low mileage could be indicative of an engine issue. Another area to focus on is the Nissan’s handling and driving ease. If it is a large car, like the Murano or Xterra, you will need more experience with handling the vehicle.

Check out the wide range of used Nissan cars and SUVs available at the Coast Nissan dealership.

Nissan plans to Create Cars that can Operate in Sub-Zero Temperatures

Monday, May 9th, 2016

Snowy car

When the temperature drops and it finally starts snowing, every car owner knows that it is time to bring out the winter tires. These tires need to be stable, sturdy, and be able to handle tough winter terrain. Most car makers are constantly trying to upgrade their winter accessories to make driving during those harsh months simpler and safer.

Japanese automobile manufacturer Nissan Motor Company is one of those brands. Considering how harsh the winters in North America can be, Nissan has released some aggressive models to take on the snow, ice, and drifts. With the upcoming 2016 Chicago Auto Show, Nissan is all set to demonstrate three new versions of its already popular crossovers – the Pathfinder, Murano, and Rogue. These three custom “Winter Warrior” crossovers are capable of tackling even the worst winters North America has experienced.

With the Winter Warrior additions, Nissan is looking to enhance the crossovers’ advanced systems, adding special snow tracks, custom exteriors, and genuine Nissan accessories. They feature heavy-duty track systems that come with matte-black finish frames. The Dominator Tracks are 30 inches high, 48 inches long, and 15 inches wide. These are fitted to replace the cars’ tires and wheels. The vehicles’ wheel wells and suspensions have been modified to fit the snow tracks. The drivetrain components are brand new.

The Winter Warrior was designed by Nissan Design America with a custom matte red-chrome body that features unique track designs as well as a “Winter Warrior” signage. These additions are expected to boost the sales of Nissan crossovers.

Learn more of the accessories and features Nissan provides by visiting the Coast Nissan dealership.
