Moody’s Downgrades Nissan’s Credit Ranking; You Probably Know Why

Save for one article about adorable baby ducks, we’ve dumped on Nissan all week. Circumstances being what they are, there wasn’t much of an alternative. Between a dismal earnings report showcasing a 45 percent decline in annual operating profit for the year ending in March, a forecasted 28 percent drop in profits for this year, corporate strife […] The post Moody’s Downgrades Nissan’s Credit Ranking; You Probably Know Why appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Florida Dealership Taps Ducks for Marketing Expertise

The last couple of weeks (and, um, stories) have been awash in negative press and bad vibes for Nissan. Fortunately, mother nature stepped in to help one Florida dealership restore the cosmic balance by having a family of ducks move in. A few months ago, a nest of ducklings hatched outside Sutherlin Nissan Orlando. They decided […] The post Florida Dealership Taps Ducks for Marketing Expertise appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Nissan Still Claiming Millennials Love Sedans

According to a study commissioned by Nissan, Millennials are committed to saving the sedan in an era when crossovers have usurped much of the market. While much of the study revolves around asking people whether they’d consider purchasing a sedan in the future — something any smart shopper would say “yes” to — survey respondents also said […] The post Nissan Still Claiming Millennials Love Sedans appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Job One for Infiniti’s New U.S. Sales Boss? Stop the Slide

Amid a tumultuous time for Nissan and its luxury division, Infiniti, company CEO Hiroto Saikawa is counting on its crucial U.S. business to turn things around.

Consumer Reports knocks Tesla’s Navigate on Autopilot feature

Consumer Reports is calling the automatic lane-change feature on Tesla’s Navigate on Autopilot “far less competent” than a human driver and cautioned it could pose safety risks. The consumer advocacy organization posted its review Wednesday on the newest version of Tesla’s advanced driver assistance system.

Ace of Base: 2020 Nissan 370Z Base

Betcha forgot about this one. That’s okay – most people have. Thanks to Nissan’s glacier-like design cycle, the 2020 Z isn’t significantly different than when it first appeared in the late Jurassic period for the 2009 model year. That doesn’t mean it isn’t worthy of our attention in this series, though, especially since it is […] The post Ace of Base: 2020 Nissan 370Z Base appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Automotive Politics: Saikawa Stays as Nissan’s CEO, Renault’s Next Move

Nissan’s Hiroto Saikawa appears to be staying on as CEO, despite claiming late last year that he would soon step down. While not sensational news in itself, the decision is underpinned by growing animosity between the automaker and alliance partner Renault. Back in March, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance was doing damage control following the arrest of […] The post Automotive Politics: Saikawa Stays as Nissan’s CEO, Renault’s Next Move appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Toyota Supra: The Best Toyota Sports Car?

The 2020 Toyota Supra is the first Supra in the United States in 21 years.  Toyota GAZOO Racing applied their vision when engineering the new Supra.  Expect the Supra in July with a fairly reasonable MSRP considering the performance.  Much has been said about the fifth-gen, 2020 Toyota Supra. We all know how the Supra is a rehashed version of the new BMW Z4, but that’s not exactly right. And while we’re still left pondering on the fine line between Toyota and BMW sports cars, I think it’s time...

Nissan’s ProPilot Aims to Get Your Hands Off the Wheel, but Only Just

Will online videos soon emerge showing Nissan drivers taking naps or hopping into the backseat while underway? Maybe, but Nissan hasn’t been as cavalier as Tesla in playing up the abilities of its driver-assist technology. Now that an upgraded system that’s on par with General Motors’ Super Cruise and Tesla’s Autopilot is on the way, […] The post Nissan’s ProPilot Aims to Get Your Hands Off the Wheel, but Only Just appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Versailles Party Video Makes Ghosn Look Like a 17th Century Monarch

Auditors attempting to assess how down and dirty Carlos Ghosn’s spending habits were have reportedly become very interested in a YouTube video of a party held at the Palace of Versailles in 2014.

How Nissan’s ‘invisible-to-visible’ tech could pave the way for autonomous cars

Nissan is experimenting with what it calls “invisible-to-visible” (I2V) tech. It’s meant to connect cars to a virtual world, but will it work in the real world? That’s what we asked Nissan’s Roel de Vries. The post How Nissan’s ‘invisible-to-visible’ tech could pave the way for autonomous cars appeared first on Digital Trends.

Nissan’s Bad Year Greenlit for a Sequel

Nissan is bracing for a bad year. On Tuesday, the automaker held a press conference at its headquarters in Yokohama, Japan, to tell the world that it’s forecasting a 28-percent decline in operating profit this year.

April 2018 U.S. Auto Sales: Volume Shrinks, but New Crossovers Are a Hit

With an extra selling day compared to the same month one year ago, auto sellers in America had the chance to improve their numbers in April. Subaru, the two Korean brands, and Nissan all managed that feat, while the likes of Fiat Chrysler and Toyota did not. Honda, for one, was roughly flat.

Nissan 370Z Roadster Bound for the Chopping Block

Almost exactly a decade after the 370Z went on sale in North America, Nissan has confirmed that the convertible version of the aging sports coupe will disappear from the company’s lineup after the 2019 model year.

For Five Bucks More Than a Nissan Leaf, You Can Get a Hellephant Instead

Apparently, today is Hemi Day in our vast autoverse, though Twitter tells me it’s also Lesbian Visibility Day, while Wikipedia informs me that John Wilkes Booth was shot through the neck in a Virginia farmhouse on this day in 1865. But yes, Hemi Day. April 26th … 4/26. Get it?

The Car Doctor Interviews Openbay Founder and CEO, Rob Infantino

Our Founder and CEO, Rob Infantino, a serial entrepreneur, recently did a podcast interview with John Paul, The Car Doctor. Listen or read highlights below. Tell us a little bit about how Openbay. Explain what your company is and how it came to be. I have a fair amount of experience with cars. I went in for a simple wheel alignment in Boston. That simple wheel alignment turned out to be $4k in repairs so I said, ‘Give me my keys back. There has to be a better way to do this.’ I felt like I wa...

Carlos Ghosn Re-released From Japanese Jail

The embattled ex-patriarch of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance has posted an additional $4.5 million in bail. Beyond some new indictments regarding his alleged misappropriation of corporate funds, not much has changed regarding the case. Ghosn and his legal team continue to maintain his innocence, suggesting that Nissan orchestrated the entire ordeal as part of a industrial […] The post Carlos Ghosn Re-released From Japanese Jail appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Nissan-Renault Relationship Has Not Improved, Despite Assurances to the Contrary

If Nissan and Renault were a living, breathing couple, they’d be the duo all of your other friends whisper about. They’d be the couple with the big house and seemingly successful children that everyone knows fights bitterly in the evenings — screaming at each other before retiring to their separate bedrooms. The relationship, while healthy in terms […] The post Nissan-Renault Relationship Has Not Improved, Despite Assurances to the Contrary appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

The 2019 New York International Auto Show

2019 is a curious year for the New York International Auto Show – at first look, there are some automakers that are notably absent – BMW, MINI, Volvo, and Mitsubishi skipped the show this year. In automotive parlance, the show is leaner, or more “muscular”. However the space on the show floor was taken up by some fresh new faces, most prominently with Rivian, the U.S.-based company producing electric adventure vehicles with a 400-mile range. There were some significant launches; among them, Hyun...

Ford’s Mustang Bragging Brings Out the Best in Rival Automakers

Ford celebrated its iconic sports coupe’s 55th birthday at the New York International Auto Show this week by proclaiming Wednesday as “Mustang Day.” But Mustang Day was overshadowed by other nostalgic celebrations taking place at the New York Auto Show, specifically Nissan’s 50th Anniversary Editions of the GT-R (which looked excellent) and 370Z (which one […] The post Ford’s Mustang Bragging Brings Out the Best in Rival Automakers appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Nissan Supports Notre Dame Restoration, Ditto for Relationship With Renault

Nissan Motor Co. has pledged a donation of 100,000 euros ($112,000) for the restoration of the fire-kissed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
