Bring Your Car To Coast Nissan’s Service Center For A Superior Inspection

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

In order to make sure our health and wellbeing is up to date, we head over to doctor’s office for a quick checkup. Similarly, for a vehicle, the best way to make sure it is working properly is to head down to Coast Nissan for a multi-point inspection. Our trained service professionals have years of experience working with Nissan models, so let us do the dirty work and check to see if your car is running safely.

Getting an inspection is one of the best things you can do whenever you are planning a long trip, haven’t taken the car to a mechanic in a while or are buying a used car. When you buy a certified pre-owned car at Coast Nissan though, we do all that hard work for you so you are confident in driving any certified pre-owned Nissan. Our thorough 167-point inspection covers all the critical components like the engine, electrical system, brakes and body, and we provide CARFAX Vehicle History Reports with every car. Your safety and satisfaction is important to us, and we want to make sure that you feel comfortable with your pre-owned purchase. It also comes with a 7-year or 100,000-mile warranty that covers over 600 parts, along with complimentary Emergency Roadside Assistance and Car Rental Reimbursement if anything goes wrong.

Any good #carinspection will cover all the major components of your car, so be sure to pay attention to what all is included in any multi-point inspection. Most cars should get an inspection at least every 15,000 miles, and many states require you to have an inspection periodically.  These routine procedures can catch developing problems before they become too severe, and in the end can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars on fixing your car.

 

Whether you just need a thorough inspection or are interested in a certified pre-owned car like a used Nissan Leaf, schedule an appointment with our experts at Coast Nissan. You can find all the information about our Nissan services and models online at www.coastnissan.com.

Nissan Announces Further Plans For GT-R Racing

Monday, February 27th, 2017

The Nissan GT-R is one of the most versatile and customizable sports cars on the market right now. Very few competitors can actually be found racing on worldwide tracks like the GT-R can, as drivers use this model as the basis for their own racing machines. This year, Nissan has announced that they are hosting and supporting many new racing programs, including a few special customer racing programs like the GT Academy. Be sure to stop by Coast Nissan to get your Nissan GT-R before the circuit begins!

 

Auto racing is growing larger by the year, not only in the U.S. but all around the globe. More and more companies are looking to try their hands at sponsoring events and creating models that are good for racing and sports car enthusiasts. For this year, four new cars based on the original #GTR performance vehicle will be designed by Nissan as part of their Super GT GT500 campaign. Nissan is always interested in training new drivers to continue growing the sport, and will be dedicating more resources to the one-of-a-kind Nissan GT Academy.

 

If you have a passion for driving and some video game racing experience, the #NissanGTAcademy offers something no other carmaker can: a chance at racing in the big leagues. Every kid who had the dream of being a professional racer now has the chance to qualify for this program online in the Gran Turismo qualifiers. Only 20 make it, but those that do get special training and skill testing from Nissan racing veterans in order to prepare them for a special event at England’s famous Silverstone raceway. Those winners then advance to the grueling Dubai 24 Hours race for the final challenge. Nissan has already sponsored several winners of this program so they can live out their dreams on the track.

 

All this starts with the Nissan GT-R, which you can test drive at your local San Luis Obispo car dealer Coast Nissan. We offer professional advice so you can find the best car that fits your needs, along with several Nissan services, so visit us online at www.coastnissan.com.

Explore The Old And The New In San Luis Obispo

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

Life is never dull when you have something new to explore every week, which is one of the great reasons that our Coast Nissan teams love being in beautiful San Luis Obispo. All around us are fantastic activities, nature tours and unbeatable food. We are proud to have been a part of this community for so many years, so here are a couple of our favorite historic places to go explore that are only a short drive away in a Nissan Altima.

Arroyo Grande is a small but culture-packed town that was founded at the turn of the century. From its older architecture and signs to the friendly shop owners, it’s easy to spend a whole afternoon in this great place. Much like the variety of new Nissan models and Nissan leases we offer at Coast Nissan, Arroyo Grande has a wide selection of antique and specialty shops where you can a take home a piece of history for yourself. The scenic atmosphere created by the historic buildings and shops creates a warm and comfortable feeling of nostalgia, and the natural beauty of the place is high on our list of sights to see.

 

Since February is Coastal Discovery and Stewardship in San Luis Obispo, there are plenty of unique attractions, activities and special lodging packages that take place all throughout the region. The California Highway 1 Discovery Route is a special 101-mile span of beautiful coastline that travels through historic towns like #ArroyoGrande, and is a perfect drive spot for any car like a used Nissan Leaf. 70 activities like restoring park trails and planting trees are open to all, allowing you to help preserve the beautiful nature that surrounds us and give back to this wonderful community.

 

From the original commercial electric car, the Nissan Leaf, to the best hybrid crossover in the Nissan Rogue, there are plenty of time-tested models to choose from at Coast Nissan. We put customer care above all else and are proud to offer exceptional Nissan service to this community, so visit us online at www.coastnissan.com.

Make Work And Play Easy With These Two Nissan Vans

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

The van will never go out of style, regardless of how it may look. They are practical for any family, and are often have the highest crash test ratings of any cars on the market. You simply can’t beat the utility that a van provides, from the incredible amount of seating to all the interesting features to keep the kids happy. The #NissanQuest and NV Passenger are two of the most versatile vans, and our sales team at Coast Nissan can help show you all the incredible features and incentives they offer.

For a classic minivan that can effortlessly bring the kids to school, soccer practice or anything in between, the Nissan Quest is the only option. The 3.5-liter V6 is perfectly optimized to balance performance and fuel economy, a trait that many other vans lack. The Xtronic CVT makes the transition between gears seamless, with no random shift-shock. The fuel efficiency is boosted even further by the power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, which uses hydraulic power to minimize the effort needed from the engine. Most importantly, all of Nissan’s best safety technology, from Advanced Smart Air Bags to Vehicle Dynamic Traction Control, are available on the different trim levels.

For a van that balances business with family features, consider the new NV Passenger. This bulkier but much more spacious van can easily fit 11 passengers, thanks to its three additional rows of seating. With Nissan’s seat configuration system, you can easily fold or move the seats to the perfect configuration for any cargo you may be bringing. If you own your own catering company or any business that needs to be on the move after dropping the kids off, the NV Passenger is adaptable and easily changes to your needs. Upgrade packages also include a more powerful engine and leather seats for a classy interior look.

 

Don’t hesitate to visit our website at www.coastnissan.com for a look at all our inventory, or if you want to take one of these vans out for a spin our sales team is ready to assist you. We are the best Nissan San Luis Obispo dealership, and we offer great deals on all our new cars and Nissan leases.

Nissan Introduces Midnight Editions To Even More Models, Available At Coast Nissan

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Everybody loves a little style added to their vehicle, so it’s no surprise that the sleek and powerful looking Maxima “Midnight Edition” was one of the bestselling versions of the car. The package included a bold paint job, better performance features and a black trim on most of the interior accessories. For 2017, Nissan has announced its plans to expand this package to five more of its already successful models: the Nissan Altima, Sentra, Rogue, Murano and Pathfinder.

At the recent Chicago Auto Show, car makers gathered to reveal new packages and upgrades to the already defined lineup of 2017 cars. The show was scheduled to begin Thursday morning, but Nissan fittingly held the reveal of the #MidnightLineup late Wednesday night. Consumers loved the black-on-black style of the Maxima, accounting for 85 percent of all Maxima SR sales, and so it only made sense to offer this package on an expanded lineup. Nissan’s chief marketing director Eric Ledieu mentioned that he asked dealers like Coast Nissan if they wanted more Midnight Editions and they, “responded by asking us to please make it happen very quickly.”

 

So exactly what upgrades make up this legendary performance package? The most noticeable aspect is the black styling that is integrated into the wheels, mirrors, spoilers, diffusers and even the floor mats. Crossovers like the Rogue and Pathfinder also will get black roof racks and splash guards. If you don’t want the car to be completely black there is an option for body colors of white, red or gunmetal grey. This package is all about creating a look and Ledieu added, “You see this level of personalization becoming popular, creating a sporty look with dark wheels, dark accents.” The best part is Nissan has made this package affordable, with the whole deal costing only half of what the separate parts cost.

 

All Midnight models are available now at your San Luis Obispo car dealer, Coast Nissan. Our sales team will work individually with you to find a vehicle or Nissan lease that fits your life needs, so don’t hesitate to visit us in store or on the web at www.coastnissan.com.

Maintain A Healthy Air Quality By Keeping An Eye On Your Air Filter

Monday, February 20th, 2017

Everything you do is somehow tied into your well being. From all the food you eat, to the activities you do, to the quality of the air you breathe—even the small details are important for staying healthy. If you live in a heavily populated or industrial area, the quality of the air you breathe can greatly affect how you feel, and poor air can even cause headaches or nausea. Fortunately, when you drive your car, it has a cabin air filter that can purify these pollutants, so here are a few tips from Coast Nissan on keeping your air filter working properly.

 

Anytime you drive a car, air is being constantly circulated from the cabin to the surroundings, and even more can be drawn if you use the air conditioning or heater. Because of this, the quality of the air you breathe inside is dependent on the quality of the air outside. If you live in a smoggy city or polluted region, the #airfilter in your car has to work even harder to remove all the dangerous gases. The more your air filter has to work however, the dirtier it gets, and it can become clogged or even so dirty it contributes to the problem! This is why it is important to have your air filter checked and replaced.

 

The best source for maintenance information about your car is the Owner’s Manual, so refer to that on how often it recommends the filter be replaced. Often it is between one and two years, but if you are on the road often or in polluted areas, this time frame may shorten. The most noticeable signs of a bad air filter are a foul odor that arises when you turn on the air, a noisier fan, or even a drop in gas mileage. If this happens, schedule a time to bring your car in for the best Nissan service with our technicians.

 

Our service technicians have spent years diagnosing and fixing problems with your Nissan, so don’t hesitate to bring your car in to Coast Nissan. We all offer exceptional deals on new Nissan models and Nissan leases, so check out our incredible selection in person or online at www.coastnissan.com.

Get More Out Of Each Drive With The 2017 Nissan Murano

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

 Taking a drive with friends or family shouldn’t just be a silent break in between the fun, it’s a perfect time to share and connect with them. A car might not seem like the most social space, but with all the features on crossovers like the Nissan Murano, you are sure to have a great time with others. You can play each other’s playlists and enjoy the music, or spend time talking about your favorite sports team. With the new 2017 Nissan Murano from the best San Luis Obispo car dealer, Coast Nissan, anything is possible.

One of the overarching themes with Nissan vehicles for this model year is the creation of a driving experience that is fun and interactive. A big part of this is connecting with the car and others, so for the Murano Nissan has added a “communication alley,” which is essentially an expanded center console that allows and even encourages interaction between the front row and back row seats. The view from the back row to the road ahead has been expanded, and they also have a perfect line of sight to the large multi-touch center display. Additional USB ports for this row have been added as well, so passengers can charge their phones and connect to the media console. You can take turns playing music or video and enjoy the luxury atmosphere.

 

The #Murano isn’t just the most social car on the market, it is a one of the highest rated luxury crossovers. The Zero Gravity seats and premium materials are easy to sit in for a few minutes or for hours during a long road trip. With nice ambient lighting touches and the advanced tech features, you will feel just like you are sitting in the comfort of your own home. It also offers several customizable features from illuminated kick plates to more stylish wheels.

To test drive a Nissan Murano or any of our new or preowned cars like a used Nissan Leaf, head over to Coast Nissan. Our sales team can help you find the car of your dreams, or you can browse our inventory online at www.coastnissan.com.

The Tokyo Auto Show Previews New Models To Become Available At Coast Nissan

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

The Tokyo Auto Show takes place each year, generally around October, and shows off some of the most interesting cars for the next model year. While it may seem too far away to be start talking about, Nissan is already offering some sneak peeks at it latest creations. This year the company is slated to bring two radically different designs to the show, including a brand new version of the popular Juke, as well as the next generation of Nissan’s Z concept car.

Nissan Juke and e-Power:

The Juke is one of the most unique looking and fun-to-drive cars on the market right now. It has the perfect balance between style and performance, with its engine providing just the right amount of acceleration and power. Best of all, the car is heavily customizable, thanks to the Juke Color Studio, which puts the paint brush in your hand so you can make the interior, exterior and trim any color you might wish. Nissan has revealed that the next Juke will feature #e-Power, a simple hybrid setup that charges an electric drivetrain engine using a small three-cylinder gas engine. This has the advantage of having almost no emissions, while still maintaining an incredibly high fuel efficiency. It also travels farther than a pure electric car and provides more horsepower.

 

The Nissan Z Concept:

The Z concept is a car that dates back almost eight years, and this year Nissan is pulling it out again for a new look and engine update. It will likely sport a 400-horsepower capable V6 engine that will give the car some serious torque and acceleration. Much like the already popular Nissan Rogue, the Z concept will also have a hybrid engine option that trades a bit of its horsepower for a hefty boost in fuel economy.

 

At Coast Nissan, we always have the latest Nissan models in stock, from the classic Nissan Altima to the groundbreaking and industry leading Nissan Leaf. All our models and Nissan leases are available for test drive and we offer expert advice and Nissan service, so call us or give us a click at www.coastnissan.com. You’ll find our entire inventory online!

Fight Engine Buildup With These Easy-To-Follow Steps

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

Just like your clothes and your house, the interior parts of a car need to be cleaned. A car wash is great for getting rid of any built up dirt or grime that could cause rust, but won’t reach important components like the engine valves. The fuel system has its own way of handling some buildup in the form of the filter, fuel pump and fuel injectors, but it still needs some help with flushing out everything. Here are some tips from Coast Nissan on keeping your engine in peak condition.

Because there is dust all around us and dirt on the roads we travel, it’s inevitable that some of it will build up in your fuel system. Here the dirt can combine with the oil your car uses and render it useless. It will also cause clogging and may damage one of the pistons or other critical components. Ultimately, this means the engine will perform significantly worse and you may experience stuttering or even total shutdown.

Fortunately, if you know the warning signs you can tackle the problem before it becomes too severe. If you notice anything out of the ordinary with your engine, including stuttering when starting, sluggish performance or difficulty in accelerating, bring your car in to our experts at the Coast Nissan service department. We can determine the primary cause of your engine problems and get you back on the road driving safely.

 

There are also a of couple steps you can take to minimize the buildup on your own. Many gas stations or auto stores offer a fuel injector additive that works to flush out all the accumulated dirt from the system. Doing this will help ensure your Nissan’s engine lasts long and performs well.

 

For any other service needs and answers to any question you might have, visit the best San Luis Obispo car dealer, #CoastNissan. Our team works hard to provide top notch Nissan service, so don’t hesitate to visit us on the lot or online at www.coastnissan.com.

Experience Animals Like You Never Have Before In San Luis Obispo

Monday, February 13th, 2017

Animals are one of the great joys in life. From having a pet cat, dog or even lizard, they make great companions for getting through the good and the bad times. Even observing animals in the wild can be fun to do, and in the San Luis Obispo area there are plenty of places to both spend time and look at these wonderful creatures. From our great team at Coast Nissan, here are some of our favorite places to enjoy the beasts of nature.

The zoo has remained true to its vow of nature conservation, and ensures the animals are happy in their environment. You can find jungles that have monkeys, sloths and pythons, to larger enclosures featuring magnificent tigers. It’s a great learning experience for kids, and is only $7 for adults and $5 for children. Be sure to look out for annual events like Zoo Boo and Holiday Magic, as well.

 

Madonna Inn Trails:

If you want something a bit more interactive, head out into the countryside to the Madonna Inn for some one of a kind trail rides.
