Have been trying for four days now to get Eric to answer a question I have about a used vehicle. Numerous emails sent to him and he either ignores it or does not answer the question. I have asked him to have another salesperson help me but so far he is ignoring that request too

Interesting Nissan Facts For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
The 2018 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL is a heck of an automobile, Kirkland and Seattle residents. It’s stylish and filled with the kind of performance and safety/convenience features that you always hope to encounter when looking into owning an upper-trim sedan. We think you’ll love it!
Neutral tones are all the rage in the automotive world—they look fantastic and appeal to a broad swathe of people—and this Maxima certainly has that angle covered. You can get this sedan in Pearl White, Brilliant Silver, Gun Metallic, or Super Black exterior paint options. Also, if you wish to instead ensure that you stand out with something bolder, you can invest in the Carnelian Red and Deep Blue shades.
The 2018 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL provides superlative safety features to keep you and your passengers secure. A tire pressure monitoring system ensures you’re kept abreast of the health of your wheels. Automatic headlamps contribute to visibility by always shining, thereby eliminating the risk that you forget to flick on your lights as dusk approaches. A blind-spot warning ensures no other motorist is able to sneak up on either side of you without your notice. And when it comes to conveniences, you’ll love the USB connection point and the inclusion of Bose premium sound.
Here’s the scoop: Back in 1914, Kwaishinsha Co.’s Kenjiro Den, Rokuro Aoyama and Meitaro Takeuchi endeavored to build an automobile. They used the first letter of each of their last names to christen the 10-HP machine they produced the “DAT,” which means “lively” or “agile” in Japanese.
In the same year, Lila Company and Kwaishinsha Co. merged; five years later in 1919, the aforementioned merged with Jitsuyo Jidosha Co., a three-wheel-car producer. The result was Dat Jidosha Seizo Co. Then, in 1931, that entity teamed up with Tobata Casting Company to make “Datson” cars (literally “son of DAT”). Later, that name would be tweaked to “Datsun” to reflect the national symbol of Japan, the sun. If you’ve been around a while, you may even remember Datsun machines, even if you’re American!
Finally, on June 1, 1934, Nihon Sanyo and Tobata Casting paired up, eventually leading to the creation of “Nissan Motors.”
That’s quite the storied—and complex—history, isn’t it? If you have any questions or wish to learn more, don’t hesitate to give us a call at Kirkland Nissan today!
If you’re looking for a very gently used machine that’s a ton of fun to drive and oozing with style, the 2018 Nissan Kicks S may be right up your alley. This is a car that we feel is primed to dazzle you!
This vehicle is athletic and capable on the roads of Renton, Bellevue, and Seattle thanks to its nimble size. Between that and its peppy engine—a naturally aspirated,1.6L four-cylinder that produces 125 HP—it offers spirited performance and is a joy to drive. And because of its high roof, it has enhanced visibility.
The 2018 Nissan Kicks S doesn’t rely solely on its engine and compact size in order to make an impression. It has other things going for it, too. High-tech software such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility enhance the driver/passenger experience by interfacing perfectly with your smartphone, allowing access to supported apps in addition to voice commands and the like. Plus, the option of a two-tone exterior is fantastically striking!
The ever-popular Maxima is one of Nissan’s best sellers—and it isn’t difficult to understand why. Sedans never go out of style; they offer both single individuals and families a combination of style and practicality. The 2018 model, for instance, is wonderfully sleek and curvaceous yet still has those four doors for easy access. Even better, though, is the fact you can make your Maxima your own by selecting from an excellent range of metallic exterior paint colors.
There are six high-gloss colors to choose from on this vehicle. Those that enjoy a neutral tone that’s a bit more reserved yet still dazzling can go for Super Black or Gun Metallic (great names, right?). Similarly, Pearl White or Brilliant Silver are very popular choices—that white really is as pure as snow. And for those that want to stand out from the crowd a bit, there’s Deep Blue and Carnelian Red.
The 2018 Maxima has power to back up all that style, too. It comes with a 3.5L six-cylinder that kicks out 300 horses and 261-lb.-ft. of torque. And because of its continuously variable transmission (CVT), it easily manages an average MPG of 21 city/30 highway.
Here's an important fact for you today, Tacoma and Kirkland residents! Nissan’s Altima has been sold more than 5.6 million times in its 25-year history. The start of the machine’s sixth generation—the 2019 Altima—is set to kick things into yet another gear.
The 2019 Altima is the first in the long line of sedans to offer Nissan’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. This isn’t your father’s AWD; instead, it’s constantly adapting to road conditions. It senses throttle position, vehicle speed, and wheel spin, all in real time, and then will divert up to 50% of available power as necessary in order to maximize performance. In less-than-optimal conditions (poor weather on harsh roads, for instance), traction and control are thereby enhanced.
Note that if you’re traveling under optimal conditions, the 2019 Altima’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive will send all power to the rear wheels in order to increase responsiveness and overall performance. Thus, no matter what the situation, you’ll be ready to meet it head-on.
It’s quite likely that you’re fond of the Nissan Altima and may even have one in your garage. But how much do you know about this venerable model?
Well, as it turns out, the Altima wasn’t even originally the “Altima,” if that makes sense. The name was first used as an identifier for the top trim of the Nissan Leopard line in Japan beginning in 1986. Later, it was applied to the Laurel mid-size vehicle sold in the Caribbean and Central America prior to 1992. It wasn’t until the Japanese Stanza car (a Nissan Bluebird clone) was replaced by the US-built Altima in 1992 for the 1993 model year that we finally saw the Altima as we know it today. It was initially built in Smyrna, Tennessee until June 2004, when manufacturing continued in Canton, Mississippi.
The ascent of the Altima has been swift. The third-generation model was named the North American Car of the Year in 2002, selling a then record-breaking number of 200,000 units that same year. Now, technologies in the 2019 Altima include zero-gravity seats, five-inch infotainment screens, Bluetooth connectivity, and more.
Express yourself, Kirkland! Really, there’s no need to hold back with the 2019 Nissan Kicks—no longer do you have to rely on walking into a dealership and picking solely from whatever exterior color and interior seat trim combination they offer. While there are a number of these options for the Kicks, if you opt for the online Color Studio, you can build your own almost exactly the way you like it.
As we mentioned, this is a lot more than choosing a single exterior paint color. You can now select how you want the accents to look on this compact and nimble machine. There are five gorgeous shades to select from—white, orange, red, blue, and black—and each can be combined with different parts to make your Kicks exceptionally unique.
You may customize the following: Wheel inserts, mirror caps, rear hatch accent, rear bumper accent, front lip finisher, door handle covers, rear roof spoiler, rearview mirror cover, lower door accent, door sill plates, air vent rings, and carpeted floor mats. Wow!
Hey, Kirkland! Interesting fact about the 2018 Nissan Kicks—it had a direct predecessor Indeed, you might consider the Kicks an almost-official “spiritual successor” or sequel to the Juke.
Here’s how it went down: In 2010, Nissan brought the visually interesting, positively spunky Juke to the market. It was a truly compact crossover that was curvaceous and loaded with some of the latest tricks and toys at the time. After a few models, however, it became clear to the Japanese automaker that it wasn’t the ultimate expression of what it wanted to achieve. They thus endeavored to make something greater but cut from a very similar cloth. The result was the bold, attractive, but still wonderfully compact and nimble 2018 Kicks. It boasted a bigger front fascia construction, lowered foglight versus the Juke, and the increasingly popular and signature new Nissan look, the V-Motion grille shape. The bumper is also thinner yet wider.
Of course, the Kicks has some extra pep in its step, too, although its focus is on fuel efficiency. Its 1.6L four-cylinder puts out 125 horses and 115-lb.-ft. of torque, all while easily achieving an EPA-estimated 31 city / 36 highway average MPG. It sports 25.3 cubic feet of cargo area in its standard configuration but can accommodate up to 53.1 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down.
Did you know that Nissan used to produce automobiles for other brands? It’s true!
Back in 1934 when Nissan was still known as “Datsun,” the automaker began to build the Austin 7 under license with the Austin Motor Company. This early partnership would represent the greatest overseas licensing success of Austin’s 7 and was the beginning of Datsun’s international renown.
Later, in 1952, Nissan would enter into a separate legal agreement with Austin to assemble 2,000 of their machines from imported partially assembled sets for sale in Japan under the Austin branding. The partnership required Nissan to make all the necessary parts locally in three years; the company met that obligation easily. All told, Nissan produced Austins for seven years, during which time they had the rights to Austin patents. It was these patents that would bolster the development of the Datsun line of cars.
Although Austin itself still built their own cars for some time, by 1955, the Austin A50 was entirely manufactured by Nissan and marketed by the company in Japan with a 1489 engine. In total, Nissan would make 20,855 Austins from 1953 to 1959.
Nissan was really the result of the merger of a number of automakers. It all began in 1914 when Kenjiro Den, Rokuro Aoyama and Meitaro Takeuchi at Kwaishinsha Co. decided to build a passenger vehicle. Using the first letter of their last names, they named the 10-HP engine that powered the machine “DAT.” This word means “agile” or “lively” in Japanese—take note of this for later!
Also in 1914, Kwaishinsha Co. merged with the Lila Company. Then, five years later in 1919, three-wheeled-car producer Jitsuyo Jidosha Co. merged with the aforementioned entities, forming Dat Jidosha Seizo Co. And when in 1931 that company partnered with Tobata Casting Company to make Datson passenger cars (literally “son” of “DAT”), it wasn’t long before the moniker was altered to Datsun to represent the national symbol of Japan (the sun). For some of you older folk, you’ll remember Datsun cars well!
The final turn was when Tobata Casting teamed up with another manufacturer, Nihon Sanyo. This produced the Jidosha Seizo Company which was renamed “Nissan Motors” on June 1, 1934.
