Nissan and CarCharging Plan to Expand EV Charging Network

Nissan has announced a collaborating initiative alongside the Car Charging Group to make EV charging more readily available and to expand consumer awareness of the electric car market.

Nissan LEAF Charging PortBrendan Jones, Nissan director for EV Infrastructure, said, “Nissan’s commitment to expanding EV charging infrastructure—including quick chargers with businesses such as CarCharging—not only supports today’s Nissan LEAF and other EV drivers, but also helps prepare communities for the increasing use of EVs. With more than 25,000 Nissan LEAFs already on U.S. roads, bolstering infrastructure further accelerates the adoption curve as it provides range confidence and promotes additional zero-emissions driving.”

The first goal for the initiative is to deploy nearly 50 Nissan quick chargers on the East Coast as well as in California. CarCharging and Nissan will continue to educate consumers about the EV charging infrastructure and the ease and benefits of public EV charging. CarCharging is also developing a mobile application that provides charging station location information with turn-by-turn directions included.

“CarCharging is thrilled to enhance our products and services by including Nissan’s quick chargers in our public EV charging network and to offer our evCharge card to consumers who purchase a LEAF at a Nissan dealership,” said Michael D. Farkas, CEO of CarCharging.

The Benefits of Buying a Used Nissan From the Dealership

Buying a car is a huge financial decision that involves many factors and can be as challenging as it is exciting. One way to reduce the stress of the car-buying situation is to opt for a used or pre-owned vehicle. There are many advantages to buying a used vehicle, and buying one from the dealership offers even more. Here are some of the benefits of buying a used Nissan from the dealership:

  • Price

One of the most significant benefits of buying a used car is the price. When choosing a used car over a new one, you avoid paying for years of depreciation, and can make lower monthly payments. The money you save can go toward upgrades and accessories.

  • Selection

Shopping for a used car at a dealership offers you a wider selection of models than you would get from a private seller. Aside from various models, a dealership will have options like model years, paint colors, trim levels, and accessories.

  • Certification

Some people are hesitant to buy a used car because they know little about its history, but at a dealership you can see that the car has a good and clean history. Before any used Nissan is sold on a dealer’s lot, it is thoroughly inspected and certified by expert technicians.

  • Warranties

Dealerships will often offer warranties on used cars much like the ones that are offered with new cars. This can save you a great amount of money in maintenance, and assures you that the car you purchase will be reliable for years to come.

If you are looking for a great new or used Nissan, come to Vester Nissan of Clinton, North Carolina. We sell and maintain high-quality Nissan vehicles with excellent customer service. Contact us onlineor at (910) 249-4088 for more information on our inventory or list of services.

Why Regular Service at the Dealership is the Best Way to Ensure Your Nissan Lives a Long and Problem-Free Life

Not only is your Nissan dealership your best resource for any new or pre-owned Nissan model, but it will also help you maintain it in optimal condition. Whether you are doing routine maintenance or are in need of collision repair, ensuring that your Nissan receives quality service and parts will go a long way toward maintaining its value and reliability. Take a look below to learn more about the advantages of dealership auto repair:

  • Parts

If you want your car to look, sound, and run as good as the day you drove it off the Nissan dealership lot, then you’ll need original equipment manufacturer (OEM) replacement parts. Independent shops frequently use cheaper non-OEM parts to cut down on costs, but there is no standard for assessing the reliability of aftermarket components. Don’t underestimate the importance of OEM parts for collision and mechanical repairs; every Nissan vehicle is thoroughly tested to withstand certain stress limits and if one part fails, then it could compromise the safety and efficiency of your vehicle.

  • Convenience

Nissan dealerships also maintain an inventory of some of the most common OEM parts, ensuring that any repairs are made as quickly as possible. In addition, Nissan dealerships have access to the latest technical service bulletins for all new Nissan models before independent repair shops do, ensuring that any common problems are corrected immediately.

  • Service

Nissan technicians undergo rigorous training in order to service every new or pre-owned Nissan as efficiently and quickly as possible. Even if an independent shop advertises ASE-certified technicians, it is still no guarantee that they’ll have the experience or diagnostic and repair tools to ensure comprehensive repairs.

For the best service for all new and pre-owned Nissan models, contact us here at Vester Nissan of Clinton, N.C. Our team of highly experienced team of ASE-Certifies and factory-trained technicians will help you maintain your Nissan in pristine condition.

Looking for a Capable Pickup with a Great Name Behind it? Check Out the 2012 Nissan Frontier

If you swing by your local Nissan dealership, you may notice a lot of commotion about the 2012 Nissan Frontier. Why? Because it’s a compact pickup that can handle anything a truck owner is likely to throw at it. But before you visit Vester Nissan of Clinton to test drive this remarkable pickup for yourself, we thought we would give you a preview of what to expect:

·         Full-Size Capability – Although the 2012 Nissan Frontier is technically a “compact” pickup, there’s nothing small about its performance. In fact, when it’s equipped with the optional 4.0L V6, the 2012 Frontier can tow up to 6,500 pounds. In other words, the Nissan Frontier is the capable and powerful pickup that you’ve always wanted.

 

·         Designed for the Road Less Traveled – If you are an outdoor enthusiast, then you will love the 2012 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X. This trim level is designed for heavy-duty off-roading. It features a standard 4.0L V6, 16-inch alloy wheels, off-road tires and shocks, underbody skid plates, and a locking rear differential. It also features two-tone upholstery and a premium Rockford Fosgate audio system so you can tear it up in style.

 

·         Dripping with Cargo Space – Although you might not think so from looking at it, the 2012 Nissan Frontier offers more than enough cargo space. First of all, the Frontier features folding rear seats that create a good amount of space for items you’d rather not leave unsecured in the truck bed. There are also movable Utili-Trak tie-downs which make securing items in the bed a breeze.
