Buy a New Nissan Leaf From Cardinale Nissan And Take Advantage Of Free Charging

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 18th, 2017 at 7:09 PM

All around the world, electric car sales continue to grow and more charging stations are being established in order to accommodate them. While an internal combustion engine needs gas stations to provide fuel, these new stations simply provide an alternative for drivers and can help make longer trips possible. Big names like Tesla, BMW and Nissan have recently developed fast charging technologies and expanded the infrastructure needed for these charging stations. With any new Nissan Leaf purchase at Cardinale Nissan in Monterey, you gain access to these stations thanks to the No Charge To Charge Program, which makes driving an electric car easier and more fun.

Useful Charging Stations

The limited range of electric cars has always been a concern for many drivers, but with the latest advances in technology you can put those doubts to rest. Initial releases of the Nissan Leaf could only go for around 100 miles without needed more power, but the latest 2018 model is estimated to easily travel over 200 miles. While this is ample enough for your workday, longer road trips were a larger concern until the introduction and development of these charging stations that you can find scatter across the United States.

No Charge To Charge

All new Nissan Leaf owners will automatically receive a two year pass into the No Charge To Charge Program. This allows you to make use of any Nissan charging station for free, and benefit from the new DC chargers. These can bring a Leaf from zero to full charge within half an hour, perfect for a refill during lunchtime or during work.

Be on the lookout for the 2018 Nissan Leaf which will be heading to Monterey car dealerships in early September. If you are looking for the best deal on new and used cars in Monterey, then Cardinale Nissan is the place to be.

Take Advantage Of Preventative Car Service At Cardinale Nissan

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 11th, 2017 at 7:07 PM

There is nothing worse than having to deal with car breakdown while you are on your way to work or to pick up the kids. Towing or roadside assistance trucks can often be expensive, and can easily eat through hours of your busy day. Luckily, with preventative maintenance from Cardinale Nissan, you can deal with these issues before they become a major problem. Head over to our Monterey car dealership and see how you can avoid these common car troubles with just a quick inspection.

Tire Pressure

A blowout or puncture in your tire is tedious to deal with, from having to put on a spare to buying a new and possible expensive tire at a shop. An improperly inflated tire makes the wheel more vulnerable to these issues, and by checking that your tires are at the right pressure, you can avoid disaster and ensure your fuel efficiency remains high.

Leaks

Between your oil, radiator fluid, transmission fluid and coolant, your car relies on having appropriate levels of these fluids. Having your car checked for loose hoses or other potential sources of a leak will keep your car running smoothly.

Dead Battery

While most batteries last for four to five years on average, having your battery die while trying to start it can leave you stranded for some time. As the battery ages, it can often lose its ability to retain an effective charge, so have our trained service technicians test your battery during your next visit.

Just like you go to the doctor and dentist for regular checkups, your car also needs regular service and inspections in order to remain healthy. Whether your own a used Nissan Sentra or a 2017 Nissan Leaf, our Cardinale Nissan team will get your car running as good as new.

Enjoy A Hearty Brunch At One Of These Hot Spots Near Cardinale Nissan

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, August 24th, 2017 at 5:29 PM

Hybrid cars like the Nissan Rogue combine the raw power of the internal combustion engine with the efficiency and eco-friendliness of an electric motor to create a fun to drive vehicle. In a similar manner, brunch takes many of your favorite breakfast foods like pancakes and fresh fruit and combines them with heartier options such as sandwiches or pasta. Going out with family or friends on a weekend brunch is the perfect way to unwind and forget about the pressures of work or school. Here are a few of Cardinale Nissan’s favorite spots to enjoy a delicious brunch around Monterey.

Crepes of Brittany

Whether you are seeking sweet or savory food for brunch, Crepes of Brittany on Alvarado St has a wide selection of crepes and sandwiches to choose from. You can start simple with the Lemon Sugar or Homemade Caramel, or try one of their loaded crepes such as Strawberry Cream Cheese or Apple Cinnamon Caramel. The crepes are cooked as you order, and the fruit is always fresh and tasty. For a heartier dish, try one of their stuffed galettes, which are similar to a pancake and can be topped with a variety of ingredients.

First Awakenings

Brunch is best served with eggs and a piping hot mug of coffee, both of which are made fresh daily at First Awakenings. Their extensive menu means that even the pickiest of eaters will find something to enjoy, and their eggs can be served up scrambled, as an omelet or just about any way you like. Kids will love the French toast or the cartoon character pancakes, and you will always be greeted with a smile and great service, much like at your local Monterey car dealership.

Right after brunch is the best time to head down to Cardinale Nissan and test drive one of our new or used cars. It also won’t be long before the 2018 models such as the Nissan Maxima arrive, along with spectacular saving that only Cardinale Nissan can offer.

Let Cardinale Nissan Help Make Your Service Schedule More Efficient

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 at 5:22 PM

Keeping up with all the time and mileage service recommendations can be difficult, especially if you attempt to tackle each one at a time. While setting reminders on your phone or calendar can be helpful, ultimately all the trips to your local service station will end up costing you more time and money. Cardinale Nissan is here to help you manage your Nissan’s service deadlines, and by combining mileage deadlines under two categories, your car will continue running smoothly and efficiently. Come down to your local Monterey car dealership to learn more about bundling your service stops.

Oil and Fluids

Your Nissan Altima relies on several fluids to maintain temperature and lubrication, and the oil needs to be serviced most often. Without properly changing your oil, it will be far less effective and can cause expensive damage to the engine. Your other fluids are almost as important, so have our service technicians check their levels and refill them as necessary at each oil change. This is also the perfect opportunity to have your air filter replaced if too much dirt has accumulated.

Brakes And Tires

Every vehicle relies on the tires and brake pads to move the car and eventually bring it to a stop, and a malfunction in either can impact your driving experience. Just by driving to and from work or school each day, the pads and tire wear down and become less effective. If you notice any issues with your brakes or a reduced fuel efficiency, bring your Nissan in to have these two components examined.

With the help of our service experts at Cardinale Nissan, you can extend the life of your car and ensure it is ready to tackle any challenge. You can even schedule an appointment ahead of time on our website to beat the wait.

Stay Safer On The Road With The Upcoming 2018 Pathfinder At Cardinale Nissan

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017 at 5:18 PM

Distracted driving is one of the most common causes of accidents on the road, whether it is simply the mind wandering or looking a phone while driving. On average, 8 people die and over 1,000 are injured each day as a result of human error or forgetfulness, so Nissan is implementing several new features on upcoming models to combat distracted driving. There are even features to help prevent parents from leaving their kid inside a hot car. Look for these features on 2018 vehicles at Cardinale Nissan, your number one source for new and used cars in Monterey.

Rear Door Alert

Leaving kids or pets in the car during warm months can be extremely dangerous, and the Rear Door Alert system will help remind parents with a sound or car horn. By checking and remembering if a rear car door was opened before a trip started, this feature will alert drivers if the rear door hasn’t been opened again once the trip ends. The feature will first be available on the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, a safe and family friendly car that combines luxury and practicality.

Highway Safety Features

Anytime you travel at high speeds, the consequences of distracted driving will be more severe and more likely to happen as traffic can change in an instant. Many drivers often consult their phone for directions, but Nissan’s advanced navigation display can both find the fastest route and be displayed between your speedometer and tachometer. This allows you to get directions and return your eyes to the road faster than ever. Other features such as Lane Keep Assist and Blind Spot Warning keep you wary of your car’s position relative to other vehicles.

Cars like the Nissan Maxima and Nissan Pathfinder help keep families and drivers safer, so visit Cardinale Nissan today to find a vehicle that fits your budget and lifestyle.

Experience The All New ProPilot Assist Feature Coming Soon To Cardinale Nissan

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 at 4:04 PM

Nissan is always looking for ways to make driving easier and safer for all, and the new Nissan ProPilot Assist technology does just that. It can help you maintain a safe distance behind other cars, stay within the lanes, navigate more efficiently and automatically park in any suitable space around Monterey. Cars like the Nissan Altima and Nissan Leaf will become far more enjoyable to drive, so be sure to stop by Cardinale Nissan once the 2018 models arrive.

Simplifying Tasks

There are many everyday tasks that drivers must accomplish, and one of the most difficult jobs is parking, especially on busy road. With the new ProPilot Park feature, your Nissan Maxima will quickly be able to automatically pull into in any space that is large enough, even if it requires parallel parking. By using various sensors and cameras, the car and accelerate, turn the wheel and brake to bring you into the desired spot.

Assisted Driving

The ProPilot system can’t take over all the functions of a car though, and it still requires the driver to have a steady grip on the wheel when using it on roads. When activated on a highway or while cruise control is enabled, the car will automatically keep the car a safe distance away from other vehicles at a speed set by the driver, as long as they keep at least one hand on the steering wheel. This is especially useful on long road trips or in highway traffic, and will help keep drivers safely in their lane and moving at the proper speed.

Cardinale Nissan will be happy to assist you with any questions about our cars or car buying process, just like the ProPilot Assist helps drivers. For more information and specifications about each of our models, visit www.cardinalenissan.com.
