Drive Your New Nissan Rogue Sport to These SLO Attractions

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

The Nissan Rogue Sport was recently shown off in a Nissan Insider video, which you can find online on Nissan’s YouTube channel. In the video, host Remi Maggio takes you on a virtual walkaround of this outstanding vehicle, showing off the sporty design as well as the variety of new features it offers. From a powerful engine to a luxury interior, this specialized crossover gives drivers everything in one package. Once you drive the #Rogue Sport off the lot of a San Luis Obispo car dealer like Coast Nissan, you no doubt will want to take it for a ride on the open road, so here are some of our favorite spots for a leisurely weekend drive.

Morro Bay Scenic Drive

The coastal areas to the north of San Luis Obispo are filled with diverse wildlife and plant life, and they offer some spectacular panoramic views. The route begins near Bishop’s Peak and Madonna Mountain, and heads past acres of farmlands, as well as nine different volcanic plugs along the coast. From there you can either head down a winding road that goes past Los Osos Creek or visit Morro Bay State Park. This is the perfect opportunity to make use of the Rogue Sport’s extensive storage space to bring along a nice picnic lunch.

Highway 46

San Luis Obispo is a big part of the wine country, and the rolling hills along Highway 46 are home to some of the finest vineyards in the country. This drive takes you past the quiet and less populated parts of San Luis Obispo, and the views of fields of blooming wildflowers and rustic farmhouses are incredible. Don’t forget to stop and take a few pictures of the family and your new car along the way.

To test drive the Rogue Sport before you hit the open road, talk to a member of our friendly sales staff team at Coast Nissan. We will assist you through the entire car buying process to make it go effortlessly, and you can always schedule Nissan service online at www.coastnissan.com.

How To Extend The Life Of Your Nissan Rogue Sport

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

Recently, Nissan Insider and Remi Maggio teamed up to show off the brand-new Nissan Rogue Sport. You can find the video on Nissan’s YouTube channel, but the best place to try out the Rogue Sport is a San Luis Obispo car dealer like Coast Nissan. This exceptional car has a number of technological and design upgrades that make it one of the most attractive crossover options of 2017. Once you drive off the Coast Nissan lot, we can also help you keep the car running efficiently and extend its lifetime with regular maintenance. Here are a few important service tips to keep in mind.

Regular Oil Changes And Fluid Inspections

Approximately every 3,000 to 7,000 miles, the oil and oil filter on your Nissan should be replaced in order to ensure your engine continues running smoothly. The various fluids in your car, such as the coolant and power steering fluid, also need to be replaced regularly, and getting these checked while getting your oil changed will keep you on schedule and save you a trip.

Brake And Tire Replacement

Approximately every 60,000 miles, your brake pads will have run their course, and need to be replaced before the metal component is reached. Tires also need to be monitored as regular use will continually wear them down. Overinflation and underinflation can accelerate this process so be sure to consult your owner’s manual to find the correct tire pressure.

Engine Maintenance

As the heart and soul of the car, the engine needs to be serviced after about 40,000 miles. Crucial components like the spark plugs and the ignition system degrade over time and a simple inspection can save you from trouble on the road.

At Coast Nissan, we provide fast and affordable Nissan service to San Luis Obispo and beyond. It’s easy to schedule an appointment on our website, www.coastnissan.com, where you can also browse for great deals on the 2017 Nissan #Rogue Sport.

Nissan Paves The Way In Car Design With The New Nissan Rogue Sport

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

Nissan has always been an industry leader when it comes to innovation in both car design and technology. Nissan was the first car maker to release an affordable electric car, the Nissan Leaf, and they also have partnered with several major engine developers to make their cars run powerfully and efficiently. In a recent video Nissan released about the Nissan Rogue Sport, host Remi Maggio highlights several new features that push the car above and beyond the competition. At a coastal Nissan dealership, you test these features for yourself in your own walkaround of the Nissan Rogue Sport.

Safety Standards

Nissan has raised the bar for safety standards significantly with each model, and this one is no different. The “Intelligent Mobility” system mentioned in the video actively monitors movement in all directions around the car, keeping an eye out for any passing cars and even pedestrians. This is extremely helpful in busy city traffic where you constantly need to stop or slow down. On the highway, the Blind Spot Warning system ensures that each lane change you make is free of traffic, while in a busy parking lot the rear-view sensors can detect movement from oncoming cars.

Luxury Technology

The #RogueSport has also been fitted with several luxury features that just make driving easier and more enjoyable. The infotainment system comes with a real-time navigation system, and the turn by turn directions can be displayed in between the gauges for easy viewing. The car also has a 360-degree camera that can be activated to give you a bird’s eye view of your current location. This is extremely helpful when using the parking assist feature, as it helps guide you directly to the center of your chosen spot.

A test drive is the best way to see how all these new features will truly impact your driving experience, so head down to Coast Nissan today. From top of the line customer service to the best selection of used cars in San Luis Obispo, www.coastnissan.com has everything you need for a perfect car buying experience.

Nissan Reveals New Nissan Rogue Sport In Latest Insider Video

Monday, June 26th, 2017

The 2017 Nissan Rogue took the world by storm with its hybrid engine option and unparalleled suite of premium features. For years, the Nissan Altima held the number one selling spot, but within a couple of months the Rogue not only became a bestseller for Nissan, but also among all crossovers. With the Rogue’s success, Nissan has designed several specialty versions of the Rogue: first, a midnight version and now the Nissan Rogue Sport. In a recent video, which you can view on Nissan’s Youtube channel, Nissan Insider Remi Maggio previews the changes that it brings, so be sure to stop by Coast Nissan, your local San Luis Obispo car dealer, for a hands-on look at the Rogue Sport.

Premium Storage Space

One of the biggest reasons to buy a crossover is for the extra passenger and storage space, and the #Rogue Sport goes above and beyond the competition. With an underfloor storage area in the trunk, you can keep essentials like a first aid kit or an umbrella stowed away and out of sight. This also makes it the perfect spot to keep valuables if you must leave them in the car. The extra room makes packing for long vacations or sporting events easy and quick. A center divider can also flip up in order to keep smaller items like balls from rolling around, and with the back row of seats folded down, the trunk holds a whopping 61.1 cubic feet of cargo.

A New Driving Experience

Nissan included a number of sporty changes to the Rogue that make driving easier and more enjoyable. The exterior has been redesigned with “emotional geometry” in mind, as the sleek body perfectly complements the sharp edges of other parts. The hybrid engine provides a balance between power and efficiency, as it can use the battery to travel at lower speeds and rely on the combustion engine for highways.

Efficient cars like the Nissan Rogue Sport are a great way to save money and look good while doing it, and with the summer sales going on at coastal Nissan dealerships, now is the best time to buy. To learn more about the Rogue Sport or to see any of our other models, head online to www.coastnissan.com.

Stay Safe On The Road At Night With These Service Tips For Your Nissan

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

There is a stark difference between driving when the sun is out and driving at night. With the lights turned on, it’s easier to see the whole length of cars that are nearby, and changing lanes is much safer. SYLVANIA Automotive recently surveyed motorists and found that over 60% of drivers actively avoid driving after the sun goes down. At your coastal Nissan dealership, we are always working to make your driving experience safer and more enjoyable, and we have many service and vehicle options that will help you and other drivers feel more confident at night. Come down to Coast Nissan In San Luis Obispo to see how regular #Nissan service can change your nighttime drives.

Headlight Problems

Your headlights and taillights are the most important features to keep maintained to drive at night. Without proper illumination, poorly lit roads and areas without street lights can be very dangerous. Malfunctioning tail lights will cause problems for other drivers, as they will not be able to see any turn signals that you use. The glass that houses your headlights can also become dirty and less transparent, making it difficult to see hazardous road conditions or changes in the flow of traffic. All of these conditions can be easily fixed by our trained specialists at Coast Nissan.

Part Upgrades

There are also several upgrades you can make to your Nissan to make night driving less stressful. High-performance headlights are designed to improve the quality of the lighting and the distance that is covered, letting you react faster. You can also get new brake pads or tires at our Nissan service centers that let you come to a stop faster and grip the road better in hazardous conditions. To find out about all the services and our exceptional selection of new and used cars, head over to www.coastnissan.com.

Drive Greener And More Efficiently With The New Nissan Leaf

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

As summer rolls around at San Luis Obispo car dealerships, so do the hottest deals of the year. Driving around in a car that has a low fuel efficiency can add up as gas prices rise with the temperatures, and no one likes a car that needs its A/C fixed. Coast Nissan can provide solutions to both problems; the Nissan Leaf is one of the highest rated and most affordable electric cars on the market, and our reliable Nissan service will keep it running smoothly throughout its long and reliable life.

The Updated Nissan Leaf

The Nissan Leaf received a new update for 2017 that not only extended its range, but also improved the overall driving experience. The car can now travel over 100 miles before needing a recharge, up by more than 30% since last year. The upcoming 2018 Leaf will look to increase this range even more. The Leaf also now includes Nissan’s Safety Shield technologies, such as Blind Spot Warnings and Cross Traffic Alerts. These two combine to keep the driver aware of moving cars around them and makes changing lanes much safer on a busy highway. The interior and trunk space are also larger than previous versions so you can bring more friends along for the ride.

The Leaf also leads the market in affordability, especially once you consider the all the special incentives offered to electric car owners. The government already offers a $7,500 federal income tax credit to anyone that purchases a new electric car, and Nissan is also partnering with numerous energy providers to save you even more money. Many gas and electric providers have already joined with Nissan and offer an additional $10,000 off a 2017 Leaf lease, so be sure to talk with your friendly Coast Nissan sales team to learn more about when this opportunity will come to San Luis Obispo.

Visit Coast Nissan

At Coast Nissan we can show you all the amazing benefits that come with owning or leasing Nissan Leaf, and you can test drive the car yourself to see how you feel about making the switch to a greener car. Visit us in store or online at www.coastnissan.com.

Nissan Raises Electrical Car Awareness With New “Kick Gas” Program

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

Imagine you are on a road trip or heading to an event and need to stop at a gas station. You first have to find one along the way, hope it is not too expensive and then find an open spot. With traffic added in, this could easily add five or ten minutes to your travel, and then you also have to pay for the gas. But what if a kind stranger filled up your tank for free, then suggested that you consider buying an electric car from a San Luis Obispo car dealer like Coast Nissan. Would you be interested?

Kick Gas Campaign By Nissan

Nissan’s latest campaign to stir up awareness for the benefits of electric cars is called “Kick Gas”, and has been doing just that. Over the course of the summer in many cities around the U.S., Nissan will be handing out free gas and encouraging drivers to consider how driving an emission free and most importantly, gas free, car would feel. It may seem crazy to hand out exactly what you are trying to get rid of, but Nissan is confident that once people experience what it is like to own a fully electric car like the #NissanLeaf they won’t want to go back. Electricity is much cheaper than gas, and it’s hard to argue against never having to drive to another gas station.

Another benefit of this program is that it gives drivers the chance to talk with Nissan representatives face to face and ask questions they may have about this technology. At Coast Nissan, you are always welcome to come chat with our sales team about all the incentives and features that are included on this incredible car, as well as browse the best selection of new and used cars San Luis Obispo has to offer. To see all the latest Nissan new and model updates, head over to www.coastnissan.com today.

Best Breakfast Around SLO

Monday, June 19th, 2017

The most important meal of the day is breakfast. It starts your body off with the energy it needs and keeps you full until lunchtime rolls around. Breakfast is like your body’s spark plug, providing the initial burst of energy and power needed to start working. Because this meal is so crucial, there are several restaurants around San Luis Obispo and near your local coastal Nissan dealership that focus on serving high quality, nutritious and tasty breakfast foods. Come check out Coast Nissan’s favorite spots to grab a bite to eat before heading to work.

Breakfast Buzz

This restaurant is located on Santa Rosa Street and stays true to its name by cooking up incredible meals starting at 7 in the morning. The breakfast burritos at #BreakfastBuzz are stuffed with delicious eggs, potatoes and cheese alongside your choice of meat. They are so big that they might just keep you satisfied until dinner.  It wouldn’t be breakfast though without some pancakes, bacon and waffles, and the combination platters let you build your own ideal plate. Their patio seating is perfect for when there is a nice breeze or if the weather is cool enough, so be sure to make this your next breakfast stop.

Louisa’s Place

Over on Higuera Street you will find this lovely restaurant that serves up home cooked meals and some of the largest omelets that you have ever seen. Their pancakes are stacked up high and they have a number of delicious syrups to choose from. If you are craving a larger meal, they also serve several lunch items, including a perfectly cooked chicken fried chicken and quesadillas. They even offer delivery and takeout options if you are in a hurry.

Just like a good breakfast, having a fun and good looking car to drive will make your morning trips to work more enjoyable.

Save Money This Summer With Nissan’s Fuel Efficient Lineup

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

With gas prices rising during the summer and more dangerous ozone levels, people are on the lookout for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. There are plenty of easy steps you can take at home; from recycling more often to using fewer plastic bags when you go to the grocery store. Every little bit makes a difference. One of the largest sources of pollution is transportation, and there are many older vehicles that are less fuel efficient than current models. Come in to a San Luis Obispo car dealer like Coast Nissan today and let us show you a few ways that our Nissan models are helping to reduce pollution.

Nissan Rogue

The 2017 Nissan Rogue is the latest addition to Nissan’s #hybrid lineup, and since its release has quickly become one of our top selling cars. The crossover design is streamlined and aerodynamic, which makes traveling on highways or in high winds less taxing on the car. It also means you have the flexibility to choose between extra seating or additional cargo space. The new hybrid engine option on the Rogue boosts its fuel economy to an EPA estimated 34 mpg combined and, thanks to the electric component, driving on city roads is essentially emission-free.

Nissan Leaf

A hybrid engine is more environmentally friendly than a regular combustion engine, but if you want to go truly emission-free, that is a job for an electric car. Thanks to Nissan’s latest battery technology, this small but efficient car can drive for over 100 miles without recharging, and there are plenty of free recharging stations scattered around the country thanks to Nissan’s No Charge To Charge program.

To test drive these two models and see all the benefits they can offer to your daily driving routine, head over to a coastal Nissan dealership. From great customer service to personalized finance plans, we work hard to make sure your car buying experience goes smoothly, so visit us on the web at www.coastnissan.com.
