Find Out Whether You Should Buy Or Lease A New Car At Coast Nissan

Monday, September 25th, 2017

One of the biggest questions for any new car owner is whether to buy or lease. Leasing rose in popularity during the 1980s as many people didn’t want to be locked down to a single car over many years. There are advantages to both, and our friendly sales team at Coast Nissan will be happy to help you determine which is the best option. Here is just a brief overview on each and their relative benefits from our San Luis Obispo car dealership.

Buying A Car

There is a certain pride that comes with owning a car, and by purchasing a vehicle you can save money in the long run as long as it remains well serviced. While you may have higher monthly payments, the payments only last over a finite period. Once the loan on the car has been paid off, you fully own the vehicle and with regular maintenance, can make it last for many more years. Buying a car is a great option for people who love a particular model or style of car, or simply want the economic freedom that comes with owning a vehicle.

Benefits Of Leasing

Many people can’t stand to just drive one car for years on end or want the new features and technologies that come with new cars each year. Leases also generally have low monthly payments and less of a down payment. Your warranty covers the majority of repair costs, and once the contract is finished, you can move on to a brand-new release or change vehicle types.

Ultimately, buying a car is more of a long-term investment than leasing, and will reward you down the line. However, a lease can be perfect for the time when you are saving up money to put a down payment on a new car and prepare for the higher monthly bills. Be sure to stop by our coastal Nissan dealership for the answers to any other questions you may have and to find the best deals on new and used Nissans.

Get Ahead Of Car Troubles With Service From Coast Nissan

Monday, September 11th, 2017

Having your car break down on a busy highway or in the middle of nowhere is a major inconvenience. From having to stop and fix the problem or calling a repair truck to help get you back on the road, it can take hours before your car is ready to drive again. Fortunately, many of these breakdowns are preventable with a little foresight and Nissan service from Coast Nissan. Much like you go to the doctor or dentist to detect problems ahead of time, come into our San Luis Obispo car dealership and have your Nissan checked for these preventable problems.

Dead Battery

Car batteries are often forgotten about, as they generally last for about four to five years. Having to call someone to jump start the car can be difficult for everyone, especially on a busy road or highway, so have your battery periodically checked to ensure it is holding a good charge. During an oil change is the perfect time to have our experts check.

Tire Troubles

An improperly inflated tire is more prone to punctures and blowout that can take your car out of commission. By regularly monitoring the tire pressure, you can avoid putting your tires at greater risk as well as keep your gas mileage from dropping.

Leaks

Your car relies on a number of fluids in order to run at maximum efficiency, and it is easy to not notice an internal leak in your car. Have Coast Nissan examine your car for any potential leaks or low levels of fluids in your car during your next service appointment.

These conditions are easily detectable and preventable if they are caught ahead of time, so schedule a regular checkup for your car at Coast Nissan. Our expert technicians will get your car patched up and on the road in no time, and you can even schedule an appointment on your time on our website.

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.

Both your brake lights and headlights are essential for a safe driving experience. Without powerful beams to guide you through the dark, navigating at night is almost impossible and very dangerous. Your brake lights help to signal following drivers that you are slowing down and should be repaired as soon as possible.

Dashboard And Infotainment System

While it isn’t necessarily dangerous that the LEDs on your dashboard aren’t illuminated, it can certainly be an inconvenience and more strenuous when driving at night. Your Nissan’s infotainment system also offers a number of features that make driving more enjoyable, like Android and Apple Car Play, as well real-time navigation so you always get to your destination on time.

Battery Problems

If the battery runs for too long, your car can sometimes fail to start. Often the solution is simply to jump it with cables and another battery, but in rare cases the battery can be truly dead.

Enjoy A Wide Variety Of Services From Coast Nissan

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

When the phrase “death and taxes” was coined, someone should have reminded them to add in car maintenance. Without a doubt, your brand-new car will eventually need an inspection, new tires or a quick checkup to keep it running smoothly. The good news is that there is an easy and quick, one-stop shop for all your car care needs: Coast Nissan. No matter what your car needs, our dedicated service team is there to get it fixed and get you back on the road. Here are just some of the many Nissan services we provide:

 

Lube, Oil and Filter Change

For your car’s engine to operate correctly, it needs a constant supply of oil to lubricate the joints. Oil is constantly moving throughout the car, and over time it becomes less effective due to dust and other impurities. When this happens, getting an oil change will keep the engine running at maximum fuel efficiency.

 

Coolant and Transmission Flush

Much like your oil, your coolant and transmission gradually become less effective due to the presence of contaminants that enter your car’s system. The coolant is critical for maintaining a proper engine temperature, and if dirty could greatly reduce your fuel efficiency. The transmission fluid allows for smooth and quick gear shifts in both manual and automatic cars.

 

Electrical Service

Does that one light in your car blink continuously or not turn on when it should? Maybe one of your headlights isn’t as bright as it should be or even working at all. Our fully certified staff are trained to quickly diagnose the cause of problems in Nissan models and get it working like new.

 

Quality Licensed Parts

As a certified Nissan dealership, we can find exactly what part is needed to fix your car, and have it shipped to our dealership in no time. Once it arrives, you are welcome to install the part yourself or have one of our technicians do it for you.

 

When you need a part of your Nissan Altima fixed, trust the people who built the car and head on over to Coast Nissan. Our San Luis Obispo car dealership will make sure your car is fit to handle any challenge on the road ahead, and you can even schedule #service online at www.coastnissan.com.
