Has Your Car Been Recalled? Nissan Warranty Service & Recall Repairs FAQ

Nissan Warranty Service & Recall Repairs

Although it may be inconvenient for you as a vehicle owner, when a car is recalled, there is always a good reason for it. Many auto recalls are due to problems that impact safety on the road. Manufacturer recalls for vehicles are fairly common, and it’s important to understand what your options are if you fall under that warranty umbrella.

How to Find Out if Your Car Has Been Recalled

Because of the importance of vehicle recalls, the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has a clearinghouse that allows you to check your VIN against recalls. (Tip: You can find the VIN on your car’s registration card or on the lower left of the car’s windshield.) The site will cover current recalls less than 15 years old, but it may not catch very recent announcements as it can take some time to identify all identified recalls.

The Top 4 Reasons to Buy a Used Car in 2018

Consumers generally like buying things that are new, things that no one else has owned.  That’s understandable, but it’s not always prudent—especially for high-ticket items like cars.

For one thing (to state the obvious), new cars cost more than used vehicles. For another, used cars are more reliable than they were two or three decades ago, with the simple reason being that cars are now built stronger and last longer than they used to. As Jack Nerad (from Kelley Blue Book) points out:

Used cars are a great value. Cars today are really good and really last a long time. They have longer useful lives than in the ’50s and ’60s when I was growing up.”

If you don’t have the right vehicle, you may end up back home with empty hands.

Nissan Brings Its Newest Tech to Detroit: The XMotion SUV

The 2018 NAIAS/Detroit Auto Show recently finished its two-week run, and car companies from across the world showed off some of their new models and concept cars. Nissan was no exception. Rather than an array of interesting items, however, the company brought one huge idea: the upcoming Xmotion (pronounced cross-motion).
