Check out the 2015 Nissan Juke review by Steven J. Ewing

"I didn't always like the Nissan Juke. When it launched in 2010, I just couldn't get over the way it looked - it came across as super weird, and kind of hideous at first blush. But I slowly warmed up to the funky little crossover/hatchback/thing, and after spending some time behind the wheel, I really learned to love Nissan's small wonder. It's a genuine hoot to drive, offering hot hatch-like thrills in a package that doesn't look like anything else on the road. The Nismo and RS models that followed only increased my ardor for the turbocharged Juke, and now, I find myself smiling whenever I see one of these little guys bombing down the road.

This Little Note is All Grown Up in 2015!

When Nissan brought me its most affordable hatchback, the 2014 Versa Note, earlier this year I found myself impressed with its nimbleness, abundant interior space great features despite its bargain price. In general I recommended it as a great bargain runabout. For 2015, Nissan has the new sportier looking Versa Note SR, and the automaker sent it my way for a week of testing (read: flogging). The new car has revised visual cues inside and out, and the equipment list is a little different than my last Versa. Best yet, it's even a little cheaper than the last one I tested as well.

The 2015 Nissan Altima – Comfort, Efficient and Sporty Handling.

Strictly by the numbers, the Nissan Altima is doing great. As Nissan’s best-selling car in the U.S., the Altima ranks third in sales in the hugely competitive midsize sedan segment, right behind sales leaders like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.


But even these popular models had better watch their backs, considering that outlying competitors –such as the Mazda6, Chrysler 200, Kia Optima and Hyundai Sonata –are itching for a fight to the top.

Cars are more than numbers, however, and our initial impression of our Nissan test car’s 182-horsepower, 2.5-Liter 4-cylinder engine left something to be desired.  Our front-wheel-drive Altima SL seemed awfully noisy, especially if a long drive lay ahead. That initial impression faded away, thankfully, as the Altima showed off its sensible side (mixed with a touch of sportiness).


Our car came with Nissan’s upgraded continuously variable transmission (CVT) that delivers better fuel economy and less friction than before. The shift transitions are quiet, smooth, and barely noticeable.  With Nissan’s engineering improvements to the CVT, fuel economy is a workable 31-mpg city/38-mpg highway, or 27-mpg combined.  The Camry and Accord haven’t announced 2015 fuel economy, but our guess is the Altima will be best in class.


All SV and SL models are eligible for a Technology package that includes a seven-inch touch-screen with color display, navigation system, voice recognition and mobile apps.  Apps include Online Search powered by Google(navigation equipped vehicles only), Pandora(Android only – iOS coming soon), Facebook and iHeart Radio for Auto. The touch-screen produced clear images and functioned well during our test.

The Technology package also includes important passive safety features like blind-spot detection, lane departure warning and moving object detection –the latter shows moving objects at the rear when your car is in reverse.

During safety tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Altima recorded a frontal crash rating of 5-stars for the driver, 4-stars for the passenger, and 4-stars during the rollover test. As of this review, there were no published results for side impact tests.


Those who demand swifter acceleration can look at the Altima with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, which delivers 270-horsepower and 25-mpg in a mix of city and highway driving.

Nissan has paid the extra pennies to ensure the interior feels solid and comes with plenty of features.  The SL trim enjoys leather seating with power seats contoured to reduce pressure on the spine and fatigue on long drives. The latest Altima is also one of the roomiest cars in its class—enough so that a six-foot relative sat in the back seat very comfortably.


Bose audio is standard on the SL, as is Sirius/XM satellite radio (a separate subscription is required) and a USB connection for your iPod.  Keyless entry with remote start, push-button ignition, power door locks and power one-touch windows, dual-zone automatic climate control, dual illuminated visor vanity mirrors and 60/40 fold down rear seats add extra convenience.


A rear view camera also contributes to the Altima’s safety profile. Standard safety features include traction control, vehicle dynamic control, tire pressure monitoring system, electronic brake force distribution, a vehicle security system and Nissan vehicle immobilizer system


All Nissan vehicles are backed by an unremarkable 36-month/36,000-mile limited vehicle coverage and a 5-year/60,000-mile limited powertrain coverage.  The Altima’s residual value is around the segment average.

All of the midsize sedan segment's top sellers have received stylish updates, and the Nissan Altima is no exception.  The trapezoidal grille and projector headlights and fog lights give the front end a touch of excitement. The SL trim gets handsome alloy wheels, LED taillights, and a chrome tail pipe. All in all, the sloping roof line and raised trunk give the Altima a pleasing fluidity – even if the car’s omnipresence on the road means it’ll never turn any heads.


First impressions aren’t always spot-on accurate, as we discovered here. After spending more time with this Altima sedan, it proved to be a practical choice wrapped in a stylish, economical, and comfortable package.

KBB names Nissan Altima one of the 10 most comfortable cars under $30,000!

KBB names Nissan Altima one of the 10 most comfortable cars under $30,000. Must be those NASA inspired seats!




The midsize sedan market is about the toughest segment in the industry – led by the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord – so if you're coming to play, you'd best bring your A-game. With the 2014 Altima, Nissan has done just that, earning it our praise as one of the 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000 for 2014. Not only has the automaker maintained the cool look and sports-car-like handling that made the original Altima such a success, they've done so while thoroughly modernizing the Altima in ways crucial to younger buyers. A new Apps-based music and navigation system spearheads the effort, as do a 38-mpg fuel economy rating (2.5 model) and premium materials throughout the handsome cabin. Nissan has done a masterful job making complex audio and navigation systems easy to operate and understand – something both old and young will appreciate.

The 2014 Nissan Titan has More than Enough Muscle to Get the Job Done

The 2014 Nissan Titan has more than enough muscle to get the job done. See why you'll love it for the long haul in Kelley Blue Book's review:

Keeping truck-buying simple.

The Nissan Titan isn't the sales leader in the full-size truck segment, but where the Titan does excel is in simplicity. You can choose extended (King) cab or Crew Cab, short or long bed and two- or four-wheel drive, but there is one engine, one transmission and one axle ratio, making this the easiest half-ton to order on the market. And changes are coming that may make the Titan a genuine contender against the likes of the F-150, Ram 1500 and Silverado.

Driving It

Some impressions from our full review: "The 2014 Nissan Titan's engine isn't the most powerful V8 in its class, but it's far from tepid, with good punch off the line and more than enough muscle to get the job done, whether that's passing slower traffic or hauling a heavy trailer (9,500 pounds is the max towing capacity) up a long grade."

A New Titan Is Coming

After more than 10 years on the market in essentially the same form as when it debuted, Nissan is finally introducing a new Titan, likely to be unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. While we don't know how different the new truck will look, Nissan has officially announced that the new Titan will be available with a V8 turbodiesel under the hood.

Build and Price

The Nissan Titan starts out at just above $30,000 for a two-wheel-drive King Cab. Choose the Crew Cab with four-wheel drive and all the bells and whistles, and that price climbs to nearly $48,000.

Wall Street’s Cheat Sheet of Nissan’s 15 Fastest Cars

From the fierce 300ZX to the blisteringly quick GT-R NISMO, Wall St. Cheat Sheet compiled this list of Nissan’s 15 Fastest Cars.



Here’s #1


1. GT-R Nismo

The GT-R Nismo is the top of the line when it comes to Nissan performance vehicles. The company took its fastest car and suped it up a bit, coming out with a blisteringly fast monster of a car. While no official performance statistics are available from Nissan, Top Gear reports that the GT-R Nismo can accelerate from 0-60 in just 2.7 seconds (though that could prove conservative, even). That’s among the fastest in the world. The Nismo sees a boost in horsepower over the standard GT-R from 542 to 591, and torque has been ratcheted up from 465 to 481 pound-feet, all from the 3.8-liter V6 engine. This is the fastest vehicle Nissan has ever put on the road, and it looks like it’ll stay that way for the foreseeable future.

The 2014 Nissan Altima has the Best Retained Value for a midsize sedan, according to Edmunds.com!

The 2014 Nissan Altima has the Best Retained Value for a midsize sedan, according to Edmunds.com!

The 2014 Nissan Altima Sedan is available in seven well-equipped models - the 2.5, 2.5 S, 2.5 SV and 2.5 SL featuring a 182-horsepower 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder and the 3.5 S, 3.5 SV and 3.5 SL with a standard 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine. Every 2014 Altima is equipped with a standard Xtronic CVTÆ (Continuously Variable Transmission).


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The 2014 Nissan Altima has just been awarded the Best Retained Value® in the mid-size sedan segment by Edmunds.com. Edging out all other midsize sedans with an overall retained value of 47.3 percent, Altima was judged to have the highest projected residual value after five years, based on their average "cash" True Market Value® (TMV®) price during their first five months in the market.

Earlier this year, the prestigious website named Altima, Nissan's top-selling vehicle, one of its "2014 Most Popular Midsize Cars" as well as a "Top Rated Vehicle."

For this year's Best Retained Value® Awards, each model's segment was determined by its body type, the size of the vehicle within its body type segment and the model's competitive luxury/non-luxury class. Awards were based on each automaker's 2014 models that launched prior to the end of 2013.

"With thoughtful technology and 38 mpg highway fuel economy*, the 2014 Nissan Altima continues to be a top contender in an extremely competitive class," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations. "Built to inspire and withstand the elements of time, the Altima was designed to satisfy the needs of owners today, tomorrow and for years to come. This recognition from Edmunds.com further solidifies the Altima's place among the best and most valuable vehicles on the road."

The 2014 Nissan Altima, the centerpiece of the Nissan lineup and one of the top selling cars in the U.S., offers a premium exterior and interior and driver-focused technology. Its many attributes include outstanding fuel economy of 38 mpg highway (2.5-liter engine) and an outstanding balance of ride comfort, stability and a fun-to-drive demeanor. Altima is offered in seven well-equipped models to meet a range of needs and budgets – and with a choice of a 182-horsepower 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine or 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V6. Both engines are matched with a smooth, efficient Xtronic transmission.

2014 Nissan Versa Note named “10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000” by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com

2014 Nissan Versa Note named one of the "10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000" by Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com


NASHVILLE, Tenn. - After a record-breaking sales month* in June, the 2014 Nissan Versa Note is now one of the coolest cars on the block. Recently, Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com named the Versa Note to its "10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000" list. The recognition follows news that Nissan Versa sales increased a record-high 30.5 percent in May.

"The Nissan Versa Note is truly 'the door to more,' offering an exceptional combination of style, comfort, technology and cargo space at a price even the most economical car buyers can appreciate," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations. "Featuring a sleek, modern design with enhanced aerodynamics for improved fuel economy, and class-exclusive Around View® Monitor, the Versa Note is "cool" in in a variety of ways – from the road, to the parking lot, to your wallet."

The companion to the popular Nissan Versa sedan and featuring a starting MSRP of only $13,990**, Versa Note celebrates the unique qualities of its 5-door hatchback design. It is available in a range of well-equipped models - S, S Plus, SV, SR and SL, each equipped with an advanced 1.6-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine with dual fuel injection.

Nissan announces America’s best commercial van warranty

Nissan announces America's best commercial van warranty; now 5-year/100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper coverage


NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nissan is announcing America's best commercial van warranty* on its Light Commercial Vehicles, increasing basic limited warranty coverage from 3 years/36,000 miles to 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. The powertrain limited warranty has also been extended from 5 years/60,000 miles to 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

The specific models covered by this new bumper-to-bumper warranty include the 2014 NV Cargo Van, NV Passenger Van and the NV200 Compact Cargo.**

"While we're relatively new to the world of commercial vehicles in the U.S., we've already proven our mettle with vehicles that endure harsh conditions that passenger cars will never see,"  said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations.  "This warranty reaffirms our confidence in the quality of our vehicles, as some of the NV 2500 and 3500 models have already accrued 550,000-plus miles of real-world use.”


The improved warranty retroactively covers all 2014 model year Nissan Commercial Vehicles. Nissan has been selling LCVs in the U.S. since spring 2011 with the introduction of the NV Cargo and NV Passenger vans. The NV200 Compact Cargo was released to acclaim in April 2013 and is also the base for the Chevrolet City Express, General Motors' upcoming entry into the segment.

"As Nissan Commercial Vehicles have established a reputation for ruggedness and durability in the field, we're gaining sales traction and customer acceptance of our work vehicles," Diaz added. "We're in the commercial vehicle game for the long haul, and this warranty will further help our customers to have greater confidence in their vehicles."

Nissan's new Light Commercial Vehicle warranty was inspired in part by the stories of Nissan Commercial Vehicles experiencing remarkable longevity under real-world work circumstances with businesses such as Above and Beyond Delivery. The company operates a fleet of 18-20 Nissan NV 3500 cargo vans out of Chandler, Ariz., supporting the mining, pharmaceuticals and food services industries. Above and Beyond began working with Nissan back in 2011, when an NV Cargo was lent to the company for its operations in the mining industry.

The initial vehicle used by Above and Beyond accrued more than 550,000 miles on its odometer with few repairs or downtime in the course of its service - the most major being an alternator replacement at 382,000 miles.

"Our drivers operate in the extreme weather of Arizona in challenging conditions, such as the Morenci Mine, which is one of the world's largest copper mines. Service failures are not an option for us. If a vehicle is down, it is not making money, so the reliability of the Nissan NVs is a massive advantage," said James Bowman, president, Above and Beyond Delivery.

"We have been very impressed at how good the Nissan NV lineup has gotten - especially with our half-million-mile experience with a single NV Cargo hauling large rock samples - so we are in the process of transitioning all of our light-duty delivery vehicles to Nissan NVs.  We have 25 vehicles on order at present."

Year-to-date, Nissan has sold more than 10,700 commercial vehicles in the U.S., an 88 percent increase over this time period in 2013.

All Nissan Commercial Vehicles sold in the U.S. are assembled in North America, with the NV Cargo and NV Passenger assembled in Canton, Miss., and the NV200 assembled in Cuernavaca, Mexico.

Nissan among the top global green brands for 2014

Nissan among the top global green brands for 2014


YOKOHAMA, Japan - Nissan has again risen in the ranks of the world's greenest brands. The company improved its position to fourth place in Interbrand's Best Global Green Brands report, up from fifth last year. The survey cited Nissan's leadership in electric vehicles, ambitious EV infrastructure plan and its support for the sustainability goals of governments. The green brand report ranks brands based on a company's environmental practices and customers' perceptions of their eco-friendliness and social impact.

By ranking fourth in 2014, Nissan improved on its strong showing last year when it moved up 16 positions to crack Interbrand's Best Global Green Brand top 10 for the first time.

"More and more people want to buy products from brands that come from organizations they trust and believe in," said Roel De Vries, Nissan corporate vice president responsible for Global Marketing, Brand and Communications. "Best Green Global Brands is a reflection of everything that we as a brand do to make the world a better place. That we are recognized this year as among the best is a confirmation we are on the right path."

Electric vehicles (EV) offer no CO2 during operation and are widely recognized as eco-friendly. The Nissan LEAF is the best-selling electric vehicle in history, with more than 120,000 units sold since launch. It held nearly 50 percent of the global EV market share in 2013. Already dominating the EV market, Nissan launched its second all-electric vehicle, the e-NV200 commercial van, in June 2014. Compared to commercial vehicles that use internal combustion engines, the e-NV200 offers reduced running costs as a zero-emission alternative for urban cargo delivery and taxi companies.

Nissan is also working to build infrastructure to accelerate uptake of EV technology. The company is aiming to triple the number of recharging devices in major U.S. cities over the next 18 months. In Japan, there are more than 6,000 chargers available to the public, and Nissan is working with industry players to speed up the establishment of more. In Europe, 1,100 quick chargers have been installed.

In Bhutan, Nissan is cooperating with the government to convert the majority of its vehicles to sustainable 100-percent electric power. The Nissan LEAF is slated to become the vehicle of choice for the Bhutanese government and taxicabs in the capital city of Thimphu.

The all-electric 2014 Nissan LEAF is available at all 7 Mossy Nissan locations in San Diego. Check out our inventory now!

NISSAN Rogue listed as top ’14 Most affordable compact SUVs, beating Honda, Subaru, Ford and Toyota!

NISSAN Rogue tops the list of 2014 Most affordable compact SUVs, beating out Honda, Subaru, Ford and Toyota!


If you're shopping for a compact SUV, the bevy of competitive options to choose from may overwhelm you. Since the last comparison test in 2012 new models from Jeep, Nissan and Toyota have gone on sale, and they're selling quite well.

One other thing that has changed recently: Most models in this segment come with relatively well-equipped base levels, or with just a few options selected. That makes finding the most affordable versions easier, but it's not a simple task.

Cars.com compiled the right trim levels that deliver expected features in this class and included the cost of gas over five years to determine the most affordable compact SUV among the ranks.

The redesigned Nissan Rogue topped the list by a scant $295 over the smaller and less well-reviewed Mitsubishi Outlander Sport when taking into the factors used to compile the list.

The new 2014 Nissan Rogue is available at all seven Mossy Nissan locations in San Diego.

The 2014 Nissan Frontier ranks #1 in TheStreet.com’s “5 Trucks That Don’t Cost Big Bucks”

The 2014 Nissan Frontier ranks #1 in TheStreet.com's "5 Trucks That Don't Cost Big Bucks"


NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Do you need a heavy-duty truck but only have a lightweight budget? Read on to check out 2014's absolutely least-expensive pickups.

"You're not really sacrificing anything by choosing any of these models," says Warren Clarke of car-buying site Edmunds.com, which compiled a rundown recently of top trucks for the tight-fisted. "The only thing you're giving up are certain features that might not be all that important to you anyway."

Clarke says penny-pinching pickups often lack just certain creature comforts that buyers often find they can live without in a work-oriented vehicle.

"Many people purchase these trucks for small-business or weekend use, so they don't need all of the 'bells and whistles' that they'd want on a car that they plan to drive to and from work every day," he says.

The Street, has awarded the Nissan Frontier the Cheapest Truck of 2014. with an MSRP of $18,850 and king cab editions.

the Nissan Frontier is a popular midsized truck that has a smaller size -- but tinier sticker price -- than what a full-sized pickup offers.

"The Frontier is another strong pick that's enjoyable to drive and has a cabin that's a really pleasant place to be," Clarke says. He adds that the model offers surprisingly good off-road abilities despite the fact that base Frontiers come with manual transmission and just a 152-horsepower four-cylinder engine. Entry-level models also include few amenities, lacking even air conditioning and a stereo unless you add an optional Preferred Package (list price: $1,200).

On the plus side, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rates the base Frontier's fuel efficiency at a solid 19 mpg/city and 23 mpg/highway.

2014 Nissan Altima named one of the most affordable by Cars.com

2014 Nissan Altima named one of the most affordable by Cars.com


NASHVILLE, Tenn. - As Nissan celebrates record-breaking Altima sales in April, potential buyers have another great reason to consider Nissan's top-selling vehicle. Citing its "great" gas mileage and "very good" crash test results, Cars.com has named the 2014 Nissan Altima the "Most Affordable Midsize Sedan."

To be considered for the Cars.com's most affordable midsize sedan challenge, contending vehicles were required to have an automatic transmission, cruise control, a USB connection, Bluetooth®, power windows, power driver's seat and a backup camera. These features, coupled with a favorable five-year estimated fuel cost, resulted in the 2014 Altima's top ranking in the popular online shopping website's annual survey of midsize sedans.
"The 2014 Nissan Altima is equipped with an abundance of features that meet the growing expectations of our consumers, while still remaining a cost-effective vehicle to own," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations. "Year-over-year sales growth and an expanding list of accolades like this recognition from Cars.com demonstrate why Altima continues to be a leader in the midsize segment."
The 2014 Nissan Altima, a Nissan core model and one of the top selling cars in the U.S., offers a premium exterior and interior and driver-focused technology. Its many attributes include outstanding fuel economy of 38 mpg highway (2.5-liter engine only) and an excellent balance of ride comfort and stability with a fun-to-drive demeanor.

Kelley Blue Book named the Nissan JUKE NISMO RS on of the 10 most fun SUVs of 2014


"Nissan's quirky, unique Juke has been cranked up a notch for the Nismo RS. More focused on performance than any other Juke, it could easily take some conventional performance cars by surprise. Its 215 horsepower are the most you can get in a Juke, and the Nismo RS comes with cool track-friendly features like a limited-slip differential, racing seats and paddle shifters."
