Checking out Nissans

My quest for a new car took me this week to Zimbrick Eastside Nissan, where I met with Sales and Leasing Consultant Denise Tretter. We chatted about what I was looking for in a car, and what I liked and didn't like about the Hyundais I tried last week.  I haven't encountered a lot of female car salespeople so Denise was a breath of fresh air...and very knowledgeable about all the cars and their features. She had four different cars for me to try..the Sentra, Versa, Cube, and Juke. I liked each of them, for different reasons. All were great on warranty and safety...but they were all so different from each other. I tried out the Sentra first. It has the Nissan Intelligent Key, which means if the key's in your pocket or purse, you can open the door by pushing a button. To start they car? Just turn the ignition with the "key" nearby. Very cool. I was also impressed with the best cup holder I've seen yet..it's adjustable! The Sentra's ride was also very smooth. Next I hopped into the Nissan Versa. It's a station wagon type hatchback car, which is not too different from my current vehicle in style. But it has an advance suspension so it's not too bumpy, lots of horsepower and torque to make merging on the highway a breeze. Next I tried the Cube. They're relatively new in the U.S., but have been around for a long time in Japan and are very popular.  From the outside I thought it was a little "boxy," but once I got in I realized that it was kinda fun to see the road from a little higher up.  I loved the Rockford Fosgate stereo system..and Denise took me out to a parking lot where I did a sharp turnaround to illustrate the amazing turning radius. And Denise told me the front of the car was designed after the face of a bulldog. (See pic below.) The final car I tried was the Nissan Juke. The brochure calls this a Turbocharged Sport Cross. It's a crossover vehicle, which means it's kind of a cross between an SUV and a car. This little car was super fun to drive. It has different modes..so you can get extra boost or torque..or take it easy to get more miles to the gallon.  And it has push-button ignition..which I think I could really get used to. I think of the four cars I drove, I felt most comfortable with the Versa. It had the highest fuel economy rating as well. Are you interested in a Nissan? Go see Denise!!
