Organize And Plan Your Nissan Car Service With Coast Nissan

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

If you take a look at your Nissan’s car manual, you will find  many service dates and mileage points which can be difficult to keep up with. There are several methods you can use to keep up with this schedule, including setting reminders on your phone or documenting your mileage each day. Fortunately, Coast Nissan can bundle many of your service appointment together and get you on a more efficient schedule, and this way you only need to remember these two main service areas. Stop by our Nissan San Luis Obispo service center to see how our experts can keep your car running smoothly.

Oil Change

Oil acts as the lifeblood of your car, so it’s critical to stay true to your recommended oil change dates. It keeps your engine components lubricated and operating efficiently, and dirty oil can cause permanent engine damage and loss of fuel efficiency. While the oil is changed, you can have other fluid levels, such as the coolant, checked and refilled if needed, along with other smaller components such as the air filter.

Brake Pads And Tires

If oil is the lifeblood of the vehicle, then the tires are the arms and legs that the car relies upon to keep moving. Both your tires and brakes pads wear down over time, as the pads erode closer to the metal strip and the tire treads become thinner. Both are critical to driving safely and efficiently, so have our service experts examine your wheels during each oil change or no later than every 20,000 miles.

With our Nissan service, you can extend the life of your vehicle and get more out of your investment. The car will feel better to drive and you can be confident in your safety, so head over to Coast Nissan today.

Check Out The Latest Safety Features On The 2018 Pathfinder Coming Soon To Coast Nissan

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

Humans can often get sidetracked, and on the road, this can prove quite dangerous as distracted driving is one of the biggest cause of accidents each year. It is even estimated that over 1,000 people are injured each day because of a distracted driver. The latest 2018 Nissan models include several new features that alert the driver to changes in traffic and can take preventative actions. Other features simply remind the driver of kids, pets or groceries they may have forgotten. Come down to Coast Nissan today in San Luis Obispo, CA and to learn more about these safety tools and let us remind you of why our dealership provides the best car buying experience.

Highway Tools

While 52% of accidents occur within 5 miles of your home, accidents on the highway have more severe consequences due to higher speed limits. Nissan has several new features to keep your eyes on the road, such as the integrated navigation system. Instead of having to look down at your phone or even at the center console to view your directions, you can now view the direction on a screen in between the speedometer and tachometer, reducing the time your eyes aren’t monitoring traffic. Other features such as Lane Keep Assist work to alert the driver when the car begins to sway from the lane, and Blind Spot Warnings notify you of cars you may not be able to see.

Rear Door Alert

The Rear Door Alert is aimed at reducing the number of children and pets who die each year as a result of being left in a hot car. This system can detect if the rear door was open before a trip starts, and remind you later to check the back seat for anything you may have forgotten. This new feature will be available on the 2018 Pathfinder coming this fall to coastal Nissan dealerships. You can also find model year end savings deals on all our 2017 vehicles, so hurry in to Coast Nissan today to find your dream car.

Stop By These Farmer’s Markets Near Coast Nissan For Fresh Food And Ingredients

Check Out The New ProPilot Assist System Coming To 2018 Coast Nissan Models

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

The revolutionary Nissan ProPilot Assist system is debuting at Coast Nissan with the 2018 models, and is an exciting technology that makes driving easier and less stressful. Along with helping to keep drivers safe and monitoring your car’s position on the road, the various ProPilot tools make everyday tasks like parking simpler. This allows you to enjoy driving more and appreciate the fun parts of getting behind the wheel. Here is a quick overview of the ProPilot system from your local coastal Nissan dealership in SLO.

Assisted Driving

Nissan’s ProPilot Assist was not designed to fully automate the car, only to help the driver in navigations and safety. Once ProPilot is activated, the driver must have at least one hand on the wheel at all times. The system will then identify the lane the car is in along with its speed and will automatically make adjustments depending on traffic. It can slow down the vehicle to the speed of the car it’s following and will keep a safe distance away to avoid a collision. The ProPilot system is one of the steadiest and advanced systems on the market, able to adapt to sharp curves with ease and remain in the lane without swaying from side to side.

Simplifying Tasks

Finding the right parking spot and pulling into it can be difficult, but the ProPilot parking system can easily automate the process. Once the target spot is identified by the system, it will automatically move the steering wheel, accelerate and brake the car to guide it into position. All of these features are made possible thanks to the addition of various sensors and cameras that make the car aware of its surroundings.

Much like the ProPilot system, our Coast Nissan sales team is happy to assist with any questions you may have. Our San Luis Obispo car dealer prides itself on offering the best customer service in town, so visit us today or head online to www.coastnissan.com.

Save On Maintenance Costs By Choosing A Nissan Hybrid Car From Coast Nissan

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

Along with the obvious benefits of a higher fuel efficiency and less emissions, many Nissan hybrid cars require less car service over their lifespan. This means not only do you save money at the pump, but your service schedule will be less expensive and frequent. Cars like the Nissan Rogue Hybrid or the Nissan Leaf are designed to be driver friendly, and fewer potential problems with your car can certainly take some of the stress off buying a new vehicle at Coast Nissan. For the regular car maintenance it does need, be sure to stop by our San Luis Obispo car dealer for the lowest prices and most reliable service.

Engine And Battery

Hybrids use a battery and a combustible engine to power the car, switching off depending on the speed. This reduces stress on the combustible engine, and the batteries in hybrid cars are so powerful nowadays that most drivers won’t ever need them replaced. They are estimated to last over 150,000 miles, but there are many on the street today that have logged upwards of 200,000 miles. Fortunately, while you do need a replacement, the price of these batteries is dropping lower and lower each year and they are also recyclable.

Brake Pad Life

The most noticeable savings you will find with electric and hybrid cars is with the brake pads. Ordinary cars need them changed regularly, but because most hybrid cars use regenerative braking, this reduces the heat and friction buildup on the pads. This eliminates much of the typical wear and tear on the mechanical brakes, extending their lifetime and saving you money.

For any other questions or concerns you may have about your car’s maintenance schedule, talk with our Nissan service experts at Coast Nissan. You can set up an appointment ahead of time to fit your schedule as well as view all our hybrid and electric models online at www.coastnissan.com.
