Nissan Makes Bold Move Into The Car Sharing Market

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Anytime you are trying to get around in the city, there are several options, like driving a Nissan Altima from Coast Nissan, taking local electric trams and even getting a taxi. Along with these, there are several successful car sharing platforms running around the U.S., like ZipCar, but none offer access to clean and easy transportation around all major cities. To solve this problem, Nissan has launched its brand-new car-sharing service in Japan, that will quickly expand to North America and Europe. This service will feature use Nissan’s two-seater electric vehicle, which is light, compact and nicknamed “Twizy.”

 

While there are several benefits to owning or leasing a new or pre-owned Nissan from your local San Luis Obispo car dealer, for people who don’t travel too far for work or vacation it’s easier and more affordable to use a car sharing service. In each city, Nissan will place these vehicles in popular travel hubs, and people can then rent and return them to any of these hubs once they are finished. These hubs also charge the Twizy while it is not in use, and because the #Twizy is light and ultra-compact, drivers will never have to worry about running out of charge.

 

The Twizy has been in development for a few years by Nissan’s partner, Renault, and after four years of safety and economic testing, they are finally ready to hit the road. They only sit up to two people, but Nissan will likely extend the program in the future to include the Nissan Leaf. The Twizy has a top speed of around 50 miles per hour and a range of 62 miles, perfect for short trips between city destinations. Being electric, drivers will never need to stop by the gas station for a fill up, and they produce much fewer emission than a typical vehicle.

 

If want a car of your own that can handle city travel and longer road trips, Coast Nissan has the best selection of Nissan’s San Luis Obispo can offer. For a look at all our current offers and models, be sure to check us out online at www.coastnissan.com.

Make Sure Your Suspension Is Ready For The Rough Road Ahead

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

One of the greatest sources of wear and tear on your vehicle comes from the road itself. The rough terrain and many miles slowly deteriorate the tires and other important parts. The most severe strain comes from uneven or bumpy terrain, which can rock the car and result in damage to your suspension. A working suspension is critical to making sure the car rides smoothly over bumps and can reliably navigate the road, so make sure yours is in pristine condition with regular Nissan service from our professionals at #CoastNissan.

 

The tires connect the car to the road, but from the tires up, the rest of the car is referred to as the suspension. The support that this system gives the car allows you to make turns and easily traverse uneven terrain without harming more fragile components. The most critical function of the suspension, however, is maintaining a proper balance during emergency maneuvers. Avoiding an accident is much more difficult if the suspension has not been properly tuned. Other duties of the suspension include making the car rider smooth for all passengers involved and balancing the distribution of weight from added stress.

 

The suspension consists of many parts overall, but there are a few that are the most important to check. Your tires need to be properly inflated, as an underinflated or overinflated tire is more prone to being popped and will greatly lower your gas mileage. In addition, having your wheels properly aligned at least every 30,000 miles reduces overall stress on your car and will keep your car functioning as intended. Overall, the suspension system does not need much maintenance, but these two simple checks go a long way in extending the life of your car.

 

We’re a San Luis Obispo car dealer that offers Nissan service and maintenance, including suspension checks or a routine inspection. Coast Nissan is friendly and you can easily schedule an appointment online at www.coastnissan.com. There you can also find our latest deals on all new and used Nissan models.

Prepare For Your Next Big Trip With These Simple Steps

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Spring break or any extended vacation is a great time to relax and enjoy life for yourself. From having a “staycation” with some extra time to sleep in or planning a spectacular road trip across the country or state, you are free to mix and match adventure and recuperation time. Before you set out on a long journey however, it’s important to ensure that your car is road ready.  A quick inspection from #CoastNissan is one of the easiest ways to keep your car in prime condition, and here are a couple of car maintenance steps to take before your next adventure.

 

Fluid Levels:

Your car needs a perfect balance of several car fluids, including oil, coolant and brake fluid to operate correctly, so spend a couple of minutes browsing your owner’s manual and identifying the various fluid levels. If you find any are low, our engineers can replace it in no time.

 

Tire Maintenance:

The car may be carrying you, but the tires are what keep the car on the road and moving forward. Too low or high tire pressure can lead to permanent damage and a vulnerability to being punctured, which would definitely put a halt to the road trip fun. Check to make sure the air pressure and the treads are up to factory recommendations, and don’t forget the spare!

 

Air Quality:

Your car’s air filter is easy to replace, but it’s often one of the most ignored maintenance recommendations. To make sure you and your passengers are enjoying clean air during the whole trip, check the air filter and make sure it isn’t too dirty.

 

Car Wash:

It may seem simple, but a quick car wash will remove all the built-up dirt and grime that has slowly been accumulating on your Nissan. If the buildup remains too long, it can erode your paint and cause damage.

 

Our Coast Nissan service department can do all Nissan services for you and much more, so don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment at the best San Luis Obispo car dealer. Along with exceptional deals on all models, we also offer friendly customer service, so call or give us a click at www.coastnissan.com.

Be Ready For The Upcoming 2018 Nissan Leaf

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

With Nissan’s recent public tests of their new autonomous vehicle program with a Nissan Leaf, it’s hard not to get excited for the possibility of a self-driving car in the company’s 2018 lineup. Currently the most likely candidate for the technology is the already tested Leaf, but Nissan has also hinted at the release of a Rogue Sport model that will have some of these features. In addition, Nissan is already giving some sneak peek information about the 2018 Leaf, as well as some extra incentives to switching over right now at dealerships like Coast Nissan.

 

Since its initial release, the Nissan Leaf has constantly been upgraded and improved each year in order to stay competitive in the electric car category. Because there have been breakthroughs in the technology almost every year, the #Leaf has seen a steady gain in both power and range since its inception. The 2018 model will take the car even further than before, boosting the range over the benchmark of 200 miles. The exterior trim will also become more modern, while still maintaining the hatchback design that allows for more passenger and storage space. It will also feature some, if not all, of the autonomous features debuted in the car’s recent London tests.

 

Nissan is also offering a limited time promotion for customers with leases that expire in 2017. During the time leading up to the full reveal of the 2018 Leaf, Nissan is offering special easy lease extensions of anywhere up to a year if owners hold onto their Leaf until the premiere. Those that do can get up to three month’s payments for free, and any existing Leaf owner or leaser will be able to upgrade to the 2018 model at a lowered price.

 

At San Luis Obispo car dealers like Coast Nissan, there are always plenty of incentives and benefits to switching to an electric vehicle like the award-winning Nissan Leaf. You can learn more about our offers and Nissan services online at www.coastnissan.com.

Discover Some Of The Finest Historical Settings Around SLO

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

The history and culture that surround a place are important for keeping track of the key events of the past and remembering some of the simpler times. For example, Nissan was built on the principles of quality and efficiency, and you can see that inspiration in our long history of making vehicles. Throughout San Luis Obispo, there are plenty of iconic landmarks from this county’s rich past, and at Coast Nissan we believe visiting these locations is a great way to spend time and learn what makes this town special. Here are some of our favorite #historic spots to visit:

 

Dallidet Adobe And Gardens:

In San Luis Obispo, you can enjoy both history and nature at the scenic Dallidet Adobe and Gardens. Constructed over 160 years ago, this location was the home of the wealthy Pierre Dallidet and his family, who played an important role in developing the surrounding area by acting as the first commercial vintner. The garden is home to both local and exotic plants that have been cultivated and taken care of over many years, and is the perfect spot to simply spend some quiet and reflecting time. You can also schedule private events, including weddings, in the more secluded part of the garden.

 

Hearst Castle:

Quite possibly the largest property in the county, Hearst Castle is a massive historic home that you could spend hours on end exploring. There are specialized tours for many different parts of the castle, including an afternoon tour, night tour, main building tour, cottages and kitchen tour and so much more. Kids will love the serene pools and expansive private zoo, where you can look at animals from all the across the globe, including zebras, camels and jaguars. The entire estate is also surrounded by gorgeous foliage and greenery and there are plenty of shops to visit, so consider spending a day somewhere the whole family will enjoy.

 

Both Nissan and San Luis Obispo have a proud history, so when you need a new vehicle, shop at a San Luis Obispo car dealer like Coast Nissan. From great deals you can find online at www.coastnissan.com to the best selection of used cars San Luis Obispo can offer, Coast Nissan will help you find the car of your dreams.

Monday, March 20th, 2017

No one plans to get in an accident, but it’s always better to be prepared for one with effective safety measures. Each year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, or IIHS, performs extensive testing on cars from every brand in order to test how well they are prepared for and can deal with a crash. The guidelines for 2017 were even stricter due to the new headlight evaluation process that was launched, as the IIHS is stressing the importance of not only being crash ready, but avoiding a crash all together. For 2017, several Nissan models received superior front end crash safety ratings from the IIHS, and you can check out each one at Coast Nissan.

 

Nissan Rogue:

It should come as no surprise that Nissan’s most popular model also comes with state of the art crash prevention systems. It’s powerful hybrid engine makes use of #ForwardEmergencyBraking to detect impending collisions even when you can’t, and brings the car to a full stop.

 

Nissan Altima:

When you want a town car that can also adapt to any situation, the Nissan Altima provides an exciting and dynamic driving experience. With the space to bring along the whole family and a sizeable amount of trunk space for a compact car, the Altima is a great and safe choice for any driver.

 

Nissan Leaf:

The Leaf has always been at the forefront of technology, and its fully electric engine couples perfectly with safety technology much like the hybrid Rogue. This incredible car recently had a substantial increase to its range, and with a new Leaf purchase at Coast Nissan you receive two years of free charging as part of Nissan’s No Charge to Charge program.

Nissan Makes First Big Public Self-Driving Test

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Throughout 2016, car companies were hard at work developing the technology to make self-driving cars in order to meet the expected due date of 2020. Any technology that will make such a big impact on driving needs to be carefully developed and tested to ensure safety and reliability. Thanks to its hard work, Nissan is already in the testing phase for a self-driving Nissan Leaf, which recently made its debut on the streets of London. It looks like autonomous cars will arrive at Coast Nissan much sooner than expected!

 

The Nissan Leaf has always been a forerunner in utilizing emerging technology, as its electric motor has been improved every year to maximize range and efficiency. So, it’s no surprise that Nissan chose this affordable and agile car as its first candidate for the transition to #self-driving. The on-board computer that regulates the output of power to the engine pairs perfectly with the autonomous system as it makes braking and accelerating the car quick and easy. The compact build of the Leaf also allows the car to need less room when changing lanes, parking and coming to a stop. Combine this with current safety features like Forward Emergency Braking and Blind Spot Monitoring and the Leaf will be one of the safest cars on the market.

 

The London debut was a great moment for both Nissan to test the autonomous Leaf as well as let the public get its first taste of the technology. Nissan gave several demonstrations throughout the week that gave willing participants a close look at the car and a short ride with a qualified driver behind the wheel. The car is fitted with numerous additional laser scanners, radar and high quality cameras to ensure the self-driving system operates as planned.

 

Look for the autonomous Leaf at your local San Luis Obispo car dealer Coast Nissan in the near future, along with the autonomous Nissan Rogue Sport, which will arrive this year. You can also find exceptional financing options and quality Nissan services from our experienced technicians, so call or visit us online at www.coastnissan.com.
