Nissan Reviews

The reviews on models vary a great deal. For example, the Altima sedan gets excellent fuel economy, but the Maxima, which is very like the Altima, doesn’t do as well in fuel economy perhaps because of its V-6 engine.

The same variations apply to the cabins of the various models. It would probably be a good idea to drive and experience the ride for this manufacturer before falling in love with a trim package.

Nissan’s reliability ratings are average.

As with most vehicles, reviews from customers vary from calling the cars “lemons” to high praise. The Maxima has had a few problems in 2013 with its drive system, but that is expected to be better in 2014.

The Altima in 2013, on the other hand, had some transmission trouble and difficulty with its fuel system. Hopes for total improvement in this model aren’t high due to the varied nature of the difficulties.

Nissan History

Nissan was founded as Kwishinsha Motor Car Works in 1911 and produced its first car, a DAT in 1914. Through mergers and changes, the Kwishinsha Motor Car Works officially became Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.

In 1934, they established the Yokohama, Japan plant. Then in 1935 Nissan began to build trucks, airplanes, and engines for the Japanese military.

After World War II, Nissan merged with a number of other car companies, including Austin.

The following models became popular in the United States:

By 1970, Nissan was one of the world’s largest automobile manufacturers and their market share increased considerably after the 1973 oil crisis.

Now Nissan cars are being produced by a South Korean plant partnered with Renault-Samsung in South Korea instead of being produced by Nissan in Japan. This production change is supposed to begin in 2014.

Nissan Car Insurance

Car insurance is required on a state-by-state basis rather than being a federal issue. Each state controls the licensing of cars, drivers, and the requirements of that on their own.

State legislatures set the basic allowable insurance limits and govern them.

To find out what your state requires, use a computer search engine and check (your state) offices online. The Department of Motor Vehicles should have the basic limits for auto insurance listed on their site.

Automobile Accident Statistics

Published statistics for automobile accidents currently stop at 2012.

In 2012, the average auto liability claim for bodily injury was $14,653. The average auto liability claim for property damage was $3,073.

A thing to remember about statistics is the way they are figured. Averages, for those who do not remember their math, are composed by adding up all the claims, then dividing by the number of claims.

This means that the average claim reflects a figure close to the median or middle range.

When purchasing insurance, consider these insurance quotes on a 2014 Nissan Altima Sedan:

Insurance Company #1: $740.00 each six months

Insurance Company #2: $837.50 each six months

In this case, premiums every six months vary by $97.50, which is $195.00 annually.

At this point, you need to consult your budget, insurance company ratings, and customer satisfaction to determine which quote you will accept.
