Don’t let the chill in the air fool you–spring has officially sprung. Soon enough, the warm weather and sunny skies will arrive (we promise!) with spring cleaning hot on their heels. And what would the season be without its garage sales?
Yes, garage sales: The original pop-up shops. While spring is usually considered the time to load up the family with no clear destination in mind, it’s the art of exploring nearby neighborhoods never before visited that excites us most. But are you prepared to haul away the garage-sale treasure of the decade? If you don’t have the right vehicle, you may end up back home with empty hands.
Before you venture out to Springfield garage sales this year, be sure to invest in one of these all-star Nissan models. You’ll thank us later.
For two years running, the Nissan Frontier has been honored with the J.D. Power award for “Highest Ranked Midsize Pickup in Initial Quality.” The Frontier leads a double life: first as a Monday-to-Friday workhorse with available Utili-track Channel System to lock down cargo. Then, on the weekend, the Frontier’s available 4×4 capabilities allow it to tear off into the wilderness, never to be seen again—at least until Monday morning.
The Frontier also boasts a wide range of accessories that make it an ultimate garage-sale companion, including sliding tool-boxes, bed liners, and bed extenders to help you transport every conceivable type of furniture.
What’s in a name? For the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, it’s a promise. No matter the road, The Pathfinder’s Intelligent 4×4 puts you in control with full-time 2WD, auto-traction, or 4WD lock mode for those hard-to-reach garages. The foot-activated hands-free rear cargo gate opens while you precariously balance milk crates and vintage vinyl records. The spacious cabin seats you and six of your most trusted garage sale helpers, too.
Nissan Versa Note
The 2017 Versa Note was awarded one of the Best Back-to-School Cars by Kelley Blue Book and for good reason. College students stocking up on furniture and accessories for the dorm will love the versatility of 60-40 split rear seats. Friends can carpool in the Versa Note from sale to sale, taking advantage of its five-passenger seating while maintaining a spacious 18.8 cubic feet of storage in the rear. With the Note’s available Divide-N-Hide adjustable floor, they can fit even more loot.
Nissan Rogue Sport
This street-savvy crossover offers the maneuverability of a sports vehicle, with its available All-Wheel Drive and a luxury interior that of a sedan, as well as a full suite of safety and convenience features. The foldable second row offers up to 61 cubic feet of space—which is large enough to answer the question: “can the Rogue Sport hold a vintage sea-foam green Formica table?” Why, yes. Yes, it can.
Best yet, the available All-Around View monitor makes snagging the last parking spot on the block a breeze, allowing you to swoop in on the best deals faster than your rivals.
Nissan Titan XD
Garage sales aren’t just for knick-knacks and small furniture. Mechanics, construction workers, painters, and hobbyists all know that garage sales are the perfect place to find tools and equipment. From ladders to table saws, the rugged Nissan Titan XD can fit it all while still comfortably seating an entire work crew in the extended cab. With a Cummins 5.0-liter V8 turbo diesel engine under the hood, the Titan XD defies you to find an item at a Springfield garage sale that it can’t handle.
The huge Nissan Armada allows you to transport your veritable pirate’s crew of garage sale looters from house to house. Unlike a pirate’s crew, the eight of you will travel in comfort thanks to the Armada’s available Captain’s Chairs package, which adds padded armrests throughout and easy third-row entry. Even with a full cabin, the Armada’s Endurance V8 can tow up to 8,500 pounds’ worth of booty, assuring you don’t return to Port emptyhanded.
