Nissan Offers Satisfaction in Its Quality Models

Sometimes when we buy things, we regret it afterward; that is buyer’s remorse. You do not want to feel buyer’s remorse after buying a new car — especially one from Ken Nelson Nissan. One way to avoid that is to buy a vehicle with a high satisfaction rating. Recently, four Nissan models earned best-in-class ratings in the 2021 AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards.

These four vehicles include the Nissan Rogue, Armada, Sentra, and Versa — all available at Ken Nelson Nissan. These models have been completely redesigned or thoroughly updated as part of the Nissan NEXT transformation plan.

AutoPacific selects its winners after polling new vehicle owners. This year, the survey included 89,000 owners and covered 36 vehicle attributes like technology, interior comfort, and driving performance.

The Rogue, which was redesigned for 2020, was praised for its spacious cabin, versatile cargo area, and abundant standard safety features. The full-size Nissan Armada comes with updated styling in 2021 and an influx of advanced technology features. This is the third year in a row it has earned the top prize in the Large SUV segment of the AutoPacific VSAs.

As for the Sentra, its affordable pricing is matched by its modern exterior styling. The Versa delivers a lot of “bang for your buck” and was named the most satisfying subcompact sedan for the second consecutive year.

Pac-Man Creators Give Nissan SUVs New Sounds

Nissan-Pathfinder-Interior | Dixon, IL

Although we would never recommend playing a video game while driving your Nissan, you might feel like you are in a video game when you ride in a new 2021 Nissan Pathfinder or Rogue at Ken Nelson Nissan.

Why is that? Nissan teamed up with the Bandai Namco Group, the makers of Pac-Man to redesign the sound signals inside some Nisan models — and you can hear the difference.

The Bandai Namco Group’s imaginative sound designers wanted to create sounds that would communicate with drivers in a more musical, organic way, as opposed to the harsher sounds previously used in those SUV models.

“We wanted to make it easier to understand the information in the car and provide an emotional tone so that people feel the Nissan brand,” explained Hiroyuki Suzuki, Nissan’s lead engineer for in-car information sound design.

Like in a video game, the sounds you hear in your Nissan are telling you critical information, for example, one tone pattern will remind you to put on your seatbelt, while another sound tells you your headlights are still on. These new Nissan SUV sounds are much more friendly, which you can hear in the automaker’s video spotlight on the sound creation process.

During the process, Nissan engineers realized the monotone device usually used to emit sounds would not work, so they created a new speaker. These updated Nissan models come with a high-quality speaker underneath the dashboard that is optimized for the new custom sounds.

To hear these new sounds in person, test-drive a Pathfinder or Rogue at Ken Nelson Nissan. If you’re a young parent in Dixon, Illinois, who has a soft spot for childhood nostalgia and care about the safety of your family’s SUV, you’ll enjoy owning these Nissan models.

2022 Nissan Pathfinder® Is Coming to Ken Nelson Nissan

Designed to optimize utility, the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder® delivers more of what families on the go need. It’ll arrive soon at Ken Nelson Nissan in Dixon, Illinois, so here’s a spotlight on what you can expect from this SUV.

Starting with an increase in total interior volume (164.6 cubic feet compared to last year’s 154), the 2022 Pathfinder also offers new features including seating for eight passengers, available captain’s chairs, and accommodations for two car seats in the third row and three units in the second row.

“We closely analyzed every angle to make this vehicle as versatile as possible, while also delivering on rugged capability,” said Jared Haslam, vice president of Product and Services Planning for Nissan U.S. and Canada. “Our goal was to turn Pathfinder into a multi-tool on wheels – making this the go-to SUV for hard-working, adventurous families.”

The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder offers best-in-class front seat legroom of 44.3 inches. And, third row passengers won’t struggle to reach their seats thanks to the Nissan EZ FLEX® one-touch seating. Once seated, they will appreciate the 46.7 inches of hip room, which makes that third row feel spacious. This reflects an increase of nearly 5 inches over previous Pathfinder models.

Convenient and concealed cargo space afforded by the new luggage box increases from 33.3 liters to 54.1 liters in the 2022 Pathfinder. For items you need access to during the drive, the 2022 Pathfinder features a new storage shelf located on top of the glove compartment. Thanks to 16 beverage holders placed throughout the cabin, you and your passengers can stay adequately hydrated on long journeys.
