Winter Car Care Tips

"Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, and since we've no place to go, Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!" Such a beautiful holiday song! Of course living in San Diego most of us don't see too much actual snow, much less spend time driving in it. But if you're planning any road trips this winter, especially up to the mountains, please make sure your car is winter ready!

Here are a few tips to help you stay safe on the roads this winter:

Tires: Tires are the number one factor in winter driving safety. When was the last time you had your tires replaced? If it was recently, have you been getting them rotated regularly? Many people forget to get this done, which means these so-called "new" tires are wearing unevenly and could actually be unsafe. Make sure you visually inspect your tires for uneven wear, and loss of tread. Better yet, have a professional inspect them! Balding tires do not grip the road effectively and they increase your breaking distance substantially - especially in wet or icy road conditions. Remember: Worn out tires aren't safe on dry pavement, but they are downright dangerous on rainy, snowy or icy roads. Be sure to get those tires inspected, rotated, and replaced if necessary right away! You can always make an appointment at your local Mossy Nissan service center - for any service needs!

Winter Survival Kit: Planning a road trip to go skiing or snowboarding? Make sure you have a winter survival kit in your car in case things don't go as planned! It only takes a few minutes to gather most of these items and they could save your life!

Your kit should include:

  • Blankets, socks, hats, mittens to keep you and your passengers warm
  • A source of heat like a can heater or multiple wick candle - don't forget matches or a lighter!
  • Water and a metal container suitable for melting snow into drinking water
  • Food - such as hard candy, energy bars, nuts and raisins
  • Bright red or orange cloth and whistle to signal for help
  • An AM/FM radio plus a flashlight - both with new batteries!

Other lifesavers! A shovel, a good spare tire, jumper cables, tire chains, road flares and a small tool kit can become your lifesavers if a bad situation comes around!

Stay warm and safe! If your car gets stuck in snowy conditions, and you need to keep your car running for heat, make that your exhaust pipe is not blocked off by snow! Run the engine and heater for 10 minutes every hour depending on the amount of gas in your tank. If there is heavy snow or sleet coming down, keep one window slightly open so you don't get sealed inside your car!

We want all our drivers to be safe this season, and we hope this helps those of you traveling to snowy climates. Mossy Nissan can help you get ready for these holiday trips with a FREE winter car care inspection, a winter car care package, or a 27-point inspection here. We wish you a safe holiday season this year!

The Mossy Nissan Pathfinder keeps San Diego drivers coming back for more!

The 2013 Model is here!


(1986 Nissan Pathfinder, Left; 2013 Nissan Pathfinder, Right)

The Nissan Pathfinder has long been a popular choice for San Diego drivers looking for rugged off road performance and legendary Nissan reliability. But what began as a rock crawling road warrior in 1986 has evolved substantially over the last 27 years. The sleek newly redesigned 2013 Nissan Pathfinder delivers a whole new level of refinement, performance, and dazzling technological innovation.

Nissan truly redesigned this 2013 Pathfinder from the ground up. They replaced the original heavy truck-based frame with a lighter chassis, shedding 500 lbs.  The lighter weight allowed Nissan to power the new Pathfinder with a smaller, fuel-efficient V-6.  Nissan also equipped the 2013 Pathfinder with their next generation Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission for maximum fuel efficiency. And to top it all off, they designed a sleeker, aerodynamic exterior. These refinements resulted in a 30% increase in gas mileage - without sacrificing a 5,000 lb towing capacity!

The 2013 Pathfinder's roomy, luxurious interior is totally new as well.   Nissan's premium three row EZ Flex (TM) seating system offers seating for seven. The third row seats even recline for extra room! Dropping the 2nd and 3rd row offers a virtually flat space of almost 80 cubic feet for extra large loads!

Nissan's incredible hi-tech innovations are on full display in the 2013 Pathfinder.  Nissan's available Tri-zone entertainment system has video screens positioned in the backs of the headrests to entertain your passengers. The new Around View® Monitor, which uses four cameras to show a 'bird's eye" view of the Pathfinder on the touch screen monitor, will help drivers park easily in the tightest spots. The 2013 Pathfinder also has available hands-free text messaging, Bluetooth® hands-free phone and streaming audio, and an advanced Drive Assist™ Display - a 4 inch color monitor with customizable easy to read delays of fuel economy, tire pressure and more!

There's so much more to see and enjoy in this new Pathfinder, why not go to your local Mossy Nissan in San Diego and test-drive one today?

The 2013 Mossy Nissan GTR: Mind Bending Performance for San Diego Nissan Enthusiasts


            Years before it was available for sale in America, Southern California driving enthusiasts envied the Nissan GT-R for its finely tuned handling and stratospheric speed. The upgrades and improvements integrated into the new 2013 model GT-R are sure to keep Nissan's flagship performance car at the top of everyone's dream vehicle list.

            For 2013, the Nissan GT-R got a serious power boost to its already powerful V-6 engine. Generating a whopping 545 horsepower and 463 lb-ft of torque, the newest GT-R reaches 60 mph in 2.7 seconds. Yes, zero to sixty in less than 3 seconds-and that's 0.4 seconds faster than the 2012 model GT-R! So how does the new 2013's twin turbo V-6 stack up against the competition? It delivers 15 more horsepower than the Porsche 911 Turbo, 40 more horses than Corvette Z06, and 90 more than the V8 equipped Audi R8!

            According to Motor Trend, "If delivering ultimate thrills, mind-bending performance and handling is what the GT-R is all about, then the 2013 GT-R accomplishes its mission even better than before."  For 2013, Nissan has equipped the GTR with improved and revised suspension with higher spring rates, which in turn provide better shock and spring balance for the ride. Speaking of shocks, Nissan also added a new bypass valve, which improves the GT-R's great daily ride and handling. The GT-R's new makeover has car enthusiasts chomping at the bit for a test drive, and luckily Mossy Nissan, the number one San Diego Nissan dealer, currently has the 2013 San Diego Nissan GT-R available right now!

San Diego Fall Car Care Tips

Mossy Nissan knows that having the best weather in America has its benefits. But now that fall is finally setting in, is your car ready for the change in seasons? Mossy Nissan wants you and your car to be safe, so we've made an important checklist that will have your car in good shape for San Diego fall weather, which can be very hot, very cool and sometimes very rainy. Having regular maintenance on your vehicle is, of course, highly recommended, but any change in seasons calls for extra-special attention to your tires, batteries, brakes and more!

  • Windshield wipers: In San Diego we don't get a whole lot of rain, but as we all know when it rains here, it really comes down hard! So this is the time to replace those old sun-baked blades with a fresh set.
  • Battery: Did you know that the extreme heat of summer months actually reduces battery life? Get your battery checked now instead of calling for a jump-start later!
  • Brakes: Regular maintenance is always important for brakes, but wet weather calls for extra attention to that area! Rain, plus worn brakes is a recipe for a fender bender or worse!
  • Belts & Hoses: Two of the most important overlooked areas of vehicle care are belts and hoses. Having them snap or leak can quickly leave you at a standstill on the road or even damage your engine. Inspect every belt and hose; be sure to check for thinning or cracking just in case!
  • Lights: During fall and winter, it gets darker earlier, so it's also important to check the head and tail lamps on your vehicle to make sure that you are highly visible to those around you.

You've obviously gone through this quick fall car care checklist, but those around you might still be in the dark on how to care for their vehicle! Do you have any other tips of your own for this oncoming winter season? Don't forget that at Mossy Nissan we are fully experienced on winter car care, so if you choose to service your Nissan with Mossy, be sure to check out our service specials. If you'd like to book an appointment with Mossy Nissan you can do that here!
