Conquer The Trails With The New Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Titan XD Pro-4X

Recently, off-road cars and trucks have been a major focus for manufacturers. People are being more adventurous nowadays, and with cars like the Chevy Colorado ZR2 and the Ford F-150 Raptor, it’s easier than ever for consumers to get all the tools they need packed into one vehicle. Nissan recently revealed their off-road specialist, a modified Titan that has a more powerful engine, better tires and expanded storage capabilities. Be on the lookout for the new Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X at a Nissan San Luis Obispo dealership like Coast Nissan.

Going off-road relies heavily on the car and gear you decide to take, and the Titan Pro-4X is designed to make the journey easier for both new and experienced campers. The car’s 5.0-liter Cummins V8 engine has plenty of acceleration and speed for regular travel, with extra low-end torque to make crawling over rocks or other obstacles easy. The tires have also been switched out for larger and thicker ones that offer better traction and grip on slicker surfaces. Front and rear bumpers mean you don’t have to worry about unexpected bumps, and the car also includes rock sliders, light bar and a winch for extra reliability.

The biggest change though was the addition of storage racks and cages over the bed of the truck. A Leitner Designs Overland bed cage provides the perfect base for a Rhino Pioneer rack and most importantly, a CVT Stargazer Tent at the top. With this truck, you no longer have to worry about bringing along a tent or sleeping bag, as the CVT Stargazer easily folds out with an integrated base and easy access ladder. The Titan Pro-4X has been aptly nicknamed “Project Basecamp,” as it will make extended camping and #offroading a simple task.

Luckily, you don’t have to head into the woods to get a great deal on a new or used vehicle from Coast Nissan. From the new Nissan Leaf to used Nissan Altima, you can find a car that fits your needs at a San Luis Obispo car dealer, so visit us online at www.coastnisssan.com.

Keep Your Tires At The Right Pressure To Avoid Added Problems

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Tire Pressure

You rely on your tires every day to get you from place to place. Whether your route takes you over the smooth highways of San Luis Obispo or dirt paths, tires bear the brunt of the road. While tires naturally wear down from regular use, one of the biggest factors that can speed up this process is over or underinflation. Head in to Coast Nissan today and let us show you how to properly inflate your tires so they operate at peak condition.

Underinflation

Having too much or too little air in your tires in dangerous, but each causes a different problem for the car. Underinflation makes the tire less firm, which in turn causes more of the tire to be in contact with the road. This surface of contact is flatter and will accumulate heat at a much faster rate, reducing fuel efficiency and causing tires to wear down much faster.

Overinflation

As you might expect, overinflated tires are much more rigid and unyielding than they should be. Tires need to be able to have some leeway to bend to the road, but tires with extra air will hit each bump and hole hard. This makes your driving experience much rougher and the extra rigidity makes the tires more susceptible to punctures from sharp objects.

Each #Nissan has its own set of tires that have inflation levels that need to be met, but not exceeded. Be sure to check your car’s manual and a psi meter to determine the current pressure and add air if needed. We can perform this Nissan service, along with many others at a coastal Nissan dealership. You can easily schedule an appointment online or browse any of our new and used models at www.coastnissan.com.

Escape The Rising Summer Gas Prices With The Nissan Rogue

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Nissan Rogue

Since its 2017 update, the Nissan Rogue has quickly become one of the hottest selling cars in America. Its unique blend of sport, safety and style make it an appealing choice for all sorts of drivers, and its affordability and fuel efficiency are some of the highest in its class. Another big upside to the Nissan Rogue is its customizability, which allows drivers to pick and choose exactly the features they want on their dream car. At Coast Nissan, your local San Luis Obispo car dealer, we can help show you all the details that make this car truly incredible, so come on down today for a test drive.

A Hybrid Engine

The biggest change that the new year brought for the #Rogue was its new hybrid engine, which offers a similar power output while improving the fuel efficiency. The 2.0 L engine provides ample power and acceleration for any road you may travel, and with an EPA estimated 33 mpg, you will save money at the pump during summer price hikes. The Nissan Rogue also has several upcoming special editions, such as the Rogue Sport and a Midnight edition. The Sport is smaller and less expensive, while still offering many of the same features, and the Midnight edition includes a full black recolor.

While the hybrid engine option has drawn the most attention, the Rogue also offers several premium safety features to keep drivers safe. A Blind Spot Monitor notifies you if a car enters the area when you are attempting to change lanes, while the Forward Emergency brake can bring the car to a halt if a collision is imminent. The Lane Departure Warnings help keep drivers from drifting out of their lane, and improved traction control makes navigating wet or bumpy terrain easier.

The Rogue scored an impressive 9.3/10 in the U.S. News safety tests, so head over to Coast Nissan to check out this highly capable car. We also offer a wide selection of new and used cars as well as many Nissan services, which you can easily schedule online at www.coastnissan.com.

Swing Into The Summer Season With These Amazing Burger Joints

Monday, May 29th, 2017

Best Burgers in SLO

With Summer almost upon San Luis Obispo, kids will be free from their school duties and seasonal sports will be in full swing. There will be plenty of ways to spend an afternoon, from touring the many museums to swimming in the clear ocean waters. No matter what activity you decide on, one of the best ways to finish off any day is with a well-crafted burger from any of the fine restaurants around town. Here are some of Coast Nissan’s favorite burger joints in San Luis Obispo.

Eddie’s Grill

This standout restaurant is a unique blend of a burger joint and a juice bar. There are several selections of meat to choose from, from the spicy kick beef to vegetarian options such as black bean patties. After you enjoy a juicy meal made just the way you like, the juice bar offers a wide variety of smoothies and specialty drinks to cool down with. The fries are perfectly seasoned and the food is always fresh, and overall #EddiesGrill is the perfect location to cool down and recharge after a day at the beach.

The Habit Burger Grill

If you never tried these succulent burgers before, be careful: they can be quite habit forming. The burgers are cooked perfectly and made to order with fresh toppings, but what really makes this place stand out are the sides. The fries crispy and well-seasoned, and they have regular and sweet potato options. The onion rings are evenly battered and fried to a golden brown, and the fried green beans are surprisingly delicious.

These two restaurants may be serving up the best burgers in town, but to find the best new and used cars in San Luis Obispo, you simply need to head over to Coast Nissan. From fine Nissan car service to great deals and financing options, you can find everything for your auto needs at www.coastnissan.com.

Save Money And Reduce Emissions With These Easy Steps

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Being more environmentally friendly is a goal that we can all strive for these days, and it’s easy to lower your own carbon footprint.

Another easy way to lower your environmental impact is with a quick service visit to Coast Nissan, your local San Luis Obispo car dealer. Not only will you find great prices on all our new models, we can help you save money and go green with a few simple steps.

Vehicle Service

One of the best habits to get into when you buy a new or used car is to start a regular service schedule. This means constantly checking your engine’s performance, monitoring the treads on the tires and changing oil at the right intervals. Many of these steps will also help reduce emissions and increase your overall fuel economy.

Recycling And Proper Part Disposal

Just like you recycle plastic bottles and old newspapers, there are many car components that need to be properly disposed of. Any motor oil or old tires can be disposed of in special ways, and we can show you the simple steps to take at Coast Nissan.

Extending Your Car’s Life

While it may feel good to slide into the driver’s seat of a brand-new car, properly servicing and caring for your current vehicle is much more environmentally friendly and will save you money. Not having monthly car payments will feel and look great in your yearly budget, and with our dedicated technicians at #CoastNissan, you don’t have to worry about finding quality Nissan service.

Nissan Reveals A Smaller And Cheaper Nissan Rogue Alternative

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

The Nissan Rogue is on track to become Nissan’s best selling car for an entire year, a feat which was previously held by the Nissan Altima. This stylish and roomy crossover combines a high fuel economy with a luxurious interior that makes driving enjoyable. It even has a hybrid engine option that provides an even higher EPA mileage rating without having to compromise any power. Some drivers though don’t need the extra space that comes in a crossover, so Nissan is releasing the all-new 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport, a smaller SUV that will hit San Luis Obispo car dealers like Coast Nissan by June.

The #Rogue Sport will be a better fit for drivers that like the SUV design but could do without the extra storage space and size. This model is lighter and smaller, but also less expensive, making it a more appealing option for single drivers. The Rogue Sport will also include all the luxury and safety features that its big brother is known for, such as adaptive cruise control which can automatically adjust your speed to the speed of the car you are following. Additionally, the car sports the latest safety technology, including blind-spot alerts and autonomous front emergency braking to help prevent accidents.

The Nissan Sport is already a star in Europe thanks to its easy-to-park size and practical interior. With its migration to North America, the car will be perfect for city drivers who are seeking the features and design that a larger SUV offers, but at a more affordable price. Other notable features include the touch screen infotainment system that uses voice recognition, so you can adjust the song or change the radio station without having to take your hands off the steering wheel.

The Nissan Rogue Sport debuts this month at all coastal Nissan dealerships, so be on the lookout for some exciting release sales. At Coast Nissan, you can test drive any of our new or used models until you find a car you enjoy driving, so visit us in store or online at www.coastnissan.com.

Nissan Works To Reduce Cases Of Distracted Driving

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Distracted Driving

One of the leading causes of accidents in the United States today is distracted driving. All too often people try to text and drive or just glance down at their cell phone for just a brief second and end up hitting another car. It’s easy to think that a quick message check won’t hurt, but traffic on a busy road or highway can change in an instant. At Nissan, part of making better safety technology is finding innovative solutions, and at Coast Nissan, you will soon be able to find the Signal Shield, a creative, in-the-box answer to the cell phone problem.

While it is just a prototype for now, this new shielded armrest compartment will help drivers avoid checking their phones through a “digital detox.” This small box attaches to the driver’s armrest and blocks the phone inside from receiving any WiFi, Bluetooth or phone signals. This will remove the temptation to constantly be checking for new notifications or text messages, and it still lets drivers use many of the media functions of their device. A small hole provides just enough room for an auxiliary cable that can be hooked up to the car to play music or podcasts.

The #Signal Shield is a smaller version of a Faraday cage, which blocks any electromagnetic signals from entering or exiting the box. Using a cell phone while driving is illegal in several parts of the United States as well as other countries, and Nissan is hoping this device prevents unnecessary cases of distracted driving caused by smartphones. When asked about this project, a Nissan spokesman stated that, “Nissan is always looking at new ways of improving the safety and well-being of our customers.”

At our coastal Nissan dealership, you can test drive any of our models and experience all our latest safety features such as Blind Spot Monitoring. If you are looking for the best provider of new and used cars in San Luis Obispo head over to Coast Nissan or visit us online at www.coastnissan.com.

Play Or Watch Sports All Around San Luis Obispo

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

Sports in SLO

One of the easiest and most fun ways to enjoy the outdoors is through sports. Whether you love to play them yourself or just want to relax with friends as a spectator, Spring and Summer are the perfect seasons to enjoy sporting events in San Luis Obispo. There are plenty of locations all around the county to rent equipment, or you can bring your own, and tickets for your local sports teams are easy to get. At Coast Nissan, we love to support our local athletes, so here are some of our favorite places to play and our favorite teams to watch.

Baseball Season

Spring and Summer are ideal for enjoying America’s national pastime, and there are several teams that call SLO home. The Cal Poly Mustangs’ regular season schedule lasts until the end of May, and be on the lookout for playoff tickets to watch these exciting young athletes play teams from around the country. College baseball games are an exciting and inexpensive way to spend a weekend with friends and family. The fun doesn’t end in May though, as the #SLOBlues begin their summer season to stay in shape during the collegiate offseason.

Beachside Fun

There is no better place to experience a wide variety of sports and activities than the beach. Just on the sand you can find pickup games of volleyball or badminton, and on the dunes you can rent an ATV to explore the long coastline. On windy days, there are always surfers trying to master the waves, and during calmer times you can rent kayaks and jet skis and head out from shore. Of course, you can always relax in the refreshing water or build castles in the sand with friends or family.

If you are more into sport cars than sports, head over to Coast Nissan to find unbeatable deals on Nissans in San Luis Obispo. We also offer expert Nissan service on all our new and used cars, which you can easily schedule online at www.coastnissan.com.

Change Your Entire Driving Experience With A Nissan Sports Car

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Nissan Sports Car

One of the most treasured qualities of sports cars is their ability to inspire excitement and enjoyment when driving. Many people consider driving to be just another boring activity that they must do to get from place to place, but with the right engine and style of car, it can be exhilarating. It is truly amazing that simply owning a Nissan sports car can completely transform one of the most integral parts of everyday life. At Coast Nissan, your source for new and used cars San Luis Obispo, you can experience the thrill of driving a Nissan GT-R or Nissan 370Z, our most popular sports cars.

Nissan 370Z

The Nissan 370Z Coupe is the perfect model for drivers looking to make the switch to a performance vehicle, thanks to its easy-to-use features and affordable price. The V6 engine produces 350 horsepower that easily accelerates the car thanks to its lightweight construction, while also maximizing fuel efficiency. The car’s handling is nimble and athletic even while at high speeds because of its innovative design, and the optional manual transition gives drivers the opportunity to enjoy a more “hands on” experience. Also be on the lookout for a possible upcoming Midnight Edition at your local San Luis Obispo car dealer.

Nissan GT-R

If you want a true sports car that competes on the track as easily as it accelerates down the open road, there is no better model than the GT-R. With an incredible 565 horsepower on the base model and 600 horsepower on the NISMO version, going from 0 to 60 mph is a trivial task. It also has better seating than many other sports cars, so you can bring up to three additional passengers along for the ride. Several luxury features also come standard, like zero-gravity seats and a Bose audio system.

 

At Coast Nissan, we can help guide you through the entire car buying process, from picking out your dream car to financing the purchase. To see our entire inventory and all our current offers, head over to www.coastnissan.com.

Nissan Looks To Double Its Selection Of Premium NISMO Cars

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Nissan NISMO

One of our most important goals at Coast Nissan is customer satisfaction. We strive to bring you the best selection of new and used cars San Luis Obispo can offer at prices that can’t be beat. This year, Nissan is working to expand its global lineup significantly, including its number of NISMO models. While the NISMO performance lineup is small and rather niche, it has an extremely dedicated fan base that values the added features and stylish designs. Nissan has announced a new plan that will double the number of NISMO models, including versions of many popular models.

Expanded NISMO Options

Currently, there are seven vehicles that proudly bear the NISMO nameplate, most of which were already sporty cars like the Nissan GT-R and 370Z. Lately, Nissan has been concentrating on making the NISMO lineup more mainstream by redesigning traditional cars like the Juke and the Sentra. The Juke still has its stylish look and Color Studio customization options, but also features a more powerful engine, an improved suspension system and better handling. The NISMO Versa also received similar performance upgrades and is the most affordable NISMO model, perfect for drivers who want exceptional performance at a reasonable price.

NISMO Vans And Trucks

There are several new #NISMO models to be excited about, and Nissan is even considering minivans and crossovers to broaden the lineup. The Nissan Quest is already one of the safest vans on the market, and a NISMO upgrade would make the car even more enjoyable to drive. The Nissan Rogue is a prime candidate for a performance upgrade, and it would potentially be the first hybrid NISMO model. Nissan is also considering a highly tuned truck like the Pathfinder or Titan to join the lineup, as it would add even more towing power as well as more off-road capabilities.

At Coast Nissan, you can take any of our NISMO models out for a test drive and experience the thrill of driving a performance vehicle for yourself. Our San Luis Obispo car dealer will work with you to find the best car that fits your needs, so check us out in store or online at www.coastnissan.com.
