Every day, more tasks become available online. If you truly wanted to, you would never have to leave your home since you can get groceries, cleaning supplies, clothes, and everything else you need delivered. With the trend of buying more online, it makes sense to wonder why people still choose to get their Nissan from a dealership. If you are contemplating buying your next Nissan online, consider the following points before ruling out the dealership.
Examining the Nissan
Perhaps the biggest reason people still choose to buy their Nissan from their local dealership is the ability to actually see the vehicle in person before finalizing the transaction. Cars are a large investment, and you don’t want to fall for an online scam. If you complete the transaction online and aren’t sure about the source, it’s easy to pay for a car that isn’t in the condition advertised or, worse, doesn’t even exist.
Buying from a dealership, however, lets you physically see the car and conduct a thorough investigation. It also gives you the chance to take your Nissan on a test drive so you can make sure it is the right model for you.
When it comes to buying cars, few online sources are completely reputable. Your local Nissan dealership, on the other hand, has a long history of successful interactions with the community. You can check its reviews with local clients and see that it has been involved in the community. All these things let you build a sense of trust, knowing that you can count on the dealership to give you a good deal and the vehicle advertised.
When you visit Jack Ingram Nissan to buy your next Nissan vehicle, you will notice that our staff encourages you to examine the models and go for a test drive. We will talk with you to help you determine the ideal model for your needs and even help you with the paperwork. There is no better way to buy a Nissan in Montgomery, Alabama.

Many people are wondering about the new safety technology coming out of Nissan next year. Called the Smart Rearview Mirror, this revolutionary device will enhance your ability to see behind you in ways you never really thought of before. But what is it? This overview will go over the Smart Rearview Mirror technology and talk about how it will make your new car that much safer and easier to drive.
What is it?
The name “Smart Rearview Mirror” is actually something of a misnomer. See, it’s not even a mirror technically. It is an LCD screen positioned where the rearview mirror is located. Using a camera mounted on the back of the vehicle, this new technology gives you a live feed through the vehicle of all the activity happening behind you.
What does it do?
The Smart Rearview Mirror will change your entire driving experience. No longer will you need to worry about obstructions in the rear window of your car, because the camera is located beyond the established trunk space. This will afford you a much clearer and wider view than you would normally have with a regular mirror. The technology is also quite effective at night and has the ability to reduce glare from approaching headlights so you are no longer blinded by somebody driving with their LED high beams on. The Smart Rearview Mirror also incorporates a smaller LCD monitor in the corner which enhances Nissan’s Around View technology, making parking and monitoring traffic a cinch.
What does this mean?
The Smart Rearview Mirror is naturally making a big splash in the automotive industry. It has already been awarded the 2014 Traffic Safety Achievement Award for its excellent ability to keep you aware of what your fellow drivers are doing. The Smart Rearview Mirror will be available in certain trims starting next year in both the Japanese and North American markets, making your new Nissan even safer than it already is. Ask your friends at Jack Ingram Nissan in Montgomery for more information.
Safety Shield technology is Nissan’s revolutionary new standard for safety and security for your vehicle, available on all models and trim levels. The basic premise revolves around three different levels of protection which use state-of-the-art technology to monitor the surroundings, respond to threats, and protect you and your car. All three levels work together simultaneously to ensure a safe and pleasant driving experience.
The first level features all sorts of neat technology which remain constantly aware of other vehicles in the area. Some of these features include a Lane Departure warning, which alerts you when neighboring vehicles are entering your lane a bit too close; a Blind Spot warning, which tells you when an object is in your blind spot without you ever looking in the mirror; and the Around View monitor, which gives you a bird’s eye view of traffic and nearby objects.
The second level gives you all sorts of tools, some of them automatic, to respond to threats. One of the coolest features is the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system, which actually takes control of your car in the event that it detects an incoming collision to make just a slight adjustment in your trajectory. Every Nissan model also comes with anti-lock brakes.
In the event that you cannot avoid a collision, all Nissan models are equipped with an advanced air bag system which utilizes curtain air bags for cushioning. Active head restraints keep you from getting whiplash in the event of a front or rear-end collision. The Nissan LATCH system (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) is also designed specifically to give your children’s seats a maximum amount of reinforcement and stability.
All these features and many more are available on all new Nissan models. Talk to your friends at Jack Ingram Nissan in Montgomery to gain more details about Nissan Safety Shield technology.
