Keep Your Car Ready With These Fluid Tips From Coast Nissan

Monday, October 16th, 2017

During the hot summer months, you rely on water to keep you hydrated and cool. Water keeps the body running cleanly and efficiently, and it is important to drink plenty throughout the day. Your Nissan also relies on many liquids such as coolant and transmission fluid in order to run smoothly. It’s important to keep the levels of these fluids from dropping too low, and they must be regularly monitored. Fortunately, Coast Nissan has a few tips you can use to quickly examine each fluid level, or you can visit our San Luis Obispo car dealership and have them examined by our trained professionals.

Oil

Oil is the lifeblood of the engine, and keeps it lubricated and operating at maximum efficiency. Oil gets dirty with regular use and must be changed around every 3,000 miles. In order to check any fluid, first make sure the car is parked on level ground and the engine is cold. For the oil, find and remove the dipstick and wipe it clean. After, re-insert and remove the stick, then consult the markings on the dipstick.

Coolant

Coolant is always important to keep an eye on, but is even more vital during the summer. Your engine can easily overheat and cause expensive damage if the coolant suddenly runs out while the engine is already hot. In most cars, it is stored in a clear plastic container by the radiator, and should have markings indicating the recommended levels.

Brake Fluid

If you notice that your brakes seem less effective or less responsive, the brake fluid may be running low. Like the coolant, it is generally stored in a clear reserve, and can be easily replaced. However, these symptoms may also indicate a leak or that you need new brake pads, so bring your car into Coast Nissan for expert Nissan service and a thorough inspection of your car.

Explore These Family Friendly Golf Courses Near SLO

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

While golfing is a fun activity and a great way to relieve all the stress that has built up during the work week, playing a long course can take time and often is expensive. Additionally, longer courses and holes can be especially difficult if you haven’t golfed in a while or simply have younger kids who want to play. Instead of heading out for a four to five hour game on 18 holes, there are several smaller courses around San Luis Obispo, CA where you can relax and enjoy a fun round of golf with your kids. Here are a few courses that Coast Nissan recommends for family fun.

Mr. Putters Putt Putt

Even if you are a serious golfer, it’s hard to not enjoy a game of putt putt, especially with all the interesting courses and ease of play. All you need is a putter and a ball and a couple of friends, and it’s a blast trying to navigate the wonderfully decorated and designed holes. The course is clean, the staff members are friendly and they are even installing a pizza kitchen so you can have a bite to eat after playing your round. Family members of all ages will enjoy this activity, and it never hurts to work on your short game.

Laguna Lake Golf Course

For a golf trip that lies in between putt putt and an eighteen-hole adventure, try the executive-length (par three) golf course down at Laguna Lake. It has been rated highly, has one of the best maintained layouts in the area and offers scenic views along the way. The par three classification means that each hole is relatively short and easy to play, while still offering a fun experience for just beginning and accomplished golfers.

Much like you need a golf cart when golfing, you also need a reliable car when heading to work or dropping the kids off at school. Coast Nissan offers affordable deals on new and used cars along with top quality Nissan service so you can be satisfied in your long-term investment.

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.

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.

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.

Make Sure Your Tires And Alignment Are Road Ready At Coast Nissan

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

An often neglected but very important part of proper car maintenance is tire care. Long road trips and hot summer roads can take a major toll on your tires and brake pads, and without proper care this can lead to more serious damage to your car. It is always important to keep in mind when you last rotated your tires or replaced the pads, and at Coast Nissan our experts can examine your car and ensure it is ready for the road. Stop by our San Luis Obispo car dealership today and let our Nissan service team do the rest.

Why Is Tire Rotation Important?

Though tires rotate all the time on the road, a tire rotation involves moving the tires on one wheel to another. This helps to reduce uneven wear on your tires. When you turn a corner, the outside edges of the front tires lean over more while the rear tires simply follow along. This causes the front tires to wear down much faster and they will need replacement much sooner. It is far easier and often cheaper to buy tires as a set of four, so rotating the tires and making sure they are all at the appropriate pressure will save you money in the long run.

Other Important Tire Services

Another factor that can result in your tires wearing out faster is improper wheel alignment. As you travel over bumps, holes or uneven roads, the irregular movements can throw your tires out of alignment. This can even reduce your gas mileage and overall handling of the vehicle. Our service professionals can quickly analyze your vehicle to see if it needs realignment.

For any other service concerns you may have about your Nissan, big or small, don’t hesitate to talk with our technicians at Coast Nissan. You can also schedule an appointment ahead of time at www.coastnissan.com and bring your car in on your schedule.

Coast Nissan’s Hybrid And Electric Models Help You Save On Gas

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

When it comes to saving money on gas, all you really need is a car with a hybrid or electric engine. Most of your fuel is used in stopping and accelerating the car during city driving, while on a highway it’s easy to maintain a certain speed. A hybrid car solves this problem by utilizing an electric motor at lower speeds and only switching to the more powerful combustible engine when going fast. This heavily boosts the fuel efficiency for hybrid and electric cars. To try out Nissan’s diverse hybrid lineup, including the Pathfinder, Rogue and Leaf, head to a San Luis Obispo car dealership such as Coast Nissan.

Nissan Rogue

The Nissan Rogue is Nissan’s best selling car overall in 2017 thanks to its hybrid engine and flexibility. As a crossover, the Rogue blends the line between the driving style of a sedan and the carrying capacity of a larger SUV. With plenty of seating, a large trunk and incredible safety features, this car works well for almost any family. The hybrid engine option boosts the fuel efficiency of the base model by 6 mpg, giving you more bang for your buck at the pump.

Nissan Pathfinder

For an even larger SUV, consider the Nissan Pathfinder, which makes use of its supercharged hybrid engine to achieve an impressive 26 combined mpg. The three rows of seating easily fit seven, and the Pathfinder is one of the only SUVs with a dynamic driving mode selector, which allows you to choose between 2WD, 4WD and Auto.

Nissan Leaf

If you want to never visit a gas station again, the Nissan Leaf runs solely on electricity and has no emissions. Charging takes as little as half an hour and Nissan has installed thousands of public charging stations around the U.S. as part of the No Charge to Charge program.

At Coast Nissan, our friendly sales team will help you find the right hybrid for your life, and can help answer questions along the way. From summer savings deals to top of the line Nissan service, you can find everything you need to get started at www.coastnissan.com.

Enjoy The Rest Of Summer At These Waterside Spots In SLO

Friday, August 4th, 2017

Even with summer beginning to fade away, it’s not too late to head to the waterfront in San Luis Obispo and have a great time with friends or family. From watersports to just relaxing and taking in some sun, there are plenty of locations around SLO to enjoy in August. This time of the year also means that Coast Nissan’s summer deals are almost gone, with only a small window left to take advantage of some of our lowest prices of the year. Get an unbeatable price on a car like the Nissan Pathfinder then take it out and explore these spots around San Luis Obispo, CA.

Skim Boarding At Pismo Beach

Surfing is skillful art that takes time to master and can be hard to learn for beginners. Fortunately, Pismo Beach offers a unique alternative known as skim boarding that is best described as a cross between surfing and skateboarding. While surfing takes place in deeper water and with larger waves, skim boarding can be done right on the shoreline in just a couple of inches of water. Riders wait for the waves to come in and break the tide line, then jump on their boards and skim across the shallow water. It’s a surprising amount of fun and easy to learn.

Lopez Lake

Not all waterfront fun needs to take place at the ocean; the Lopez Lake Recreation Area is one of the top locations for rest and relaxation. With over 22 miles of shoreline and water temperatures that hover around 70 degrees, this small lake is perfect for cooling off or trying out a new water sport. From fishing to windsurfing to skiing, there is something for all to enjoy at Lopez Lake. It even has several scenic camping and picnicking spots.

Come talk with a member of our friendly sales team at Coast Nissan before our summer sales come to a close. We also offer affordable and fast Nissan service that you can schedule ahead of time at www.coastnissan.com.
