2015 Nissan Sentra Earns Initial Quality Award

According to J.D. Power, not to mention millions of happy drivers, the 2015 Nissan Sentra is worthy of the Initial Quality Award this year. The Initial Quality Award is determined by the Initial Quality Study, which has been conducted by J.D. Power for the past 29 years.

“In the very competitive segment of compact sedans, Sentra continues to separate itself with a strong combination of quality, safety, value, style and more,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations in a Nissan press release. “Driven by owner feedback, the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study serves as an important benchmark for new vehicle quality, further demonstrating the worth of Sentra and Quest as top contenders in their respective segments.”

As Diaz stated, the 2015 Nissan Quest also earned top marks with the lowest problems experienced per 100 vehicles in its segment. This PP100 metric takes into account various factors of satisfaction including but not limited to safety, style, technology and quality. To be at the top in the ultra-competitive compact car segment with all those factors in play puts the impressiveness of the 2015 Nissan Sentra on full display.

We Almost Never Knew the 8th Generation Nissan Maxima

On June 2nd, the 8th generation Nissan Maxima will go on sale across the U.S., marking an important milestone for the “sport sedan.”  Just four years ago, the Maxima nameplate almost got the boot, according to Automotive News, with Nissan executives on the verge of calling it quits on the popular sedan. At the time, the auto industry was just beginning to come back from the recession, and buyers favored smaller, more fuel efficient cars.

Now, after a change in direction both in the economy and in buyer preferences, the Maxima is not only still around, but better than ever.

For 2016, the Maxima is sportier, featuring a new, aerodynamic design. Its low roofline and distinct body curves, an upgraded engine, improved fuel economy, a wraparound cockpit, and improved seating all contribute to the new Maxima’s performance and appeal.

“When I look at this car, I’m proudest of the fact that it’s here at all,” said Takeshi Yamaguchi, who was Nissan North America’s vice president for vehicle engineering and vehicle program management for the Maxima. “And on top of that, I’m proud of that fact that we took the Maxima beyond where it was, instead of taking it backward.”
