Nissan Set to Launch Eight New Models
The company is releasing the Juke, a compact crossover based on the Versa platform, in September, to expand its SUV offerings based on the success of its Rogue model. It will be joined by a 40th Anniversary Z sports coupe, the Nissan Leaf electrical vehicle in December, and a newly remodeled Quest minivan by January 2011.
Infiniti will also see a host of updated models. The M Sedan will launch in redesigned form this Spring as will the QX56 SUV, based on the Nissan Patrol available outside of the United States, and conceivably a replacement for the full size Nissan Armada.
Business owners may be interested in the NV2500, a new panel truck-like creation that is based on the automaker's Frontier truck. The concept version shown at the Detroit Auto Show added a panel van like attachment, with several compartments available for customization. It's set for sale in November.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
