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.
Nissan offers some fantastic models for families in Dixon, Illinois, which are as safe and reliable as they are tough. In acknowledgment of that, PARENTS named the Nissan Rogue® and Pathfinder® to its “Best Family Cars 2021” list.
Nissan significantly updated this midsize crossover inside and out to make it more family-friendly. Thus, PARENTS gave the 2021 Rogue the recognition of “Best Redesign.”
The Rogue is exceptionally comfortable, with a generous amount of legroom in each row, available tri-zone automatic temperature control, and available heated seats. PARENTS appreciates that the crossover’s rear doors open almost 90 degrees, making installing a car seat or loading luggage far easier.
The redesigned 2022 Pathfinder earned recognition as “Best for Towing.” This SUV can tow up to 6,000 pounds when properly equipped, which means it’s more than capable of bringing your trailer to the campsite or your boat to the lake.
PARENTS also notes that the SUV has flexible, spacious seating throughout. The editors wrote, “You may be able to fit up to three car seats or boosters in the second row and two in the third.” Both models also come standard with Nissan Safety Shield® 360. This suite of innovative safety systems can help protect your family on each drive.

U.S. News & World Report recently announced its top 25
Best Commuter Cars for 2019. This list showcased sedans and SUVs with excellent
fuel economy, comfortable interiors, and affordable prices (all under $35,000).
Both the Nissan Rogue and Nissan Kicks received spots on the list, proving that
their efficient designs make them rewarding choices for a commuter vehicle.
The 2019 Rogue earned praise for its excellent fuel efficiency of 33 mpg on the highway, as well as its standard set of Nissan Safety Shield 360 features. Safety features on this model include Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. U.S. News & World Report writer Joel Patel also commented, “When you’re commuting, the comfort-first nature of this SUV shines.”
The 2019 Kicks also received marks for its fuel-sipping powertrain. The 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine pairs with a continuously variable transmission to achieve 36 mpg on the highway and 33 mpg combined. The model’s interior amenities — like the Zero Gravity Seats, which are designed to help reduce fatigue by encouraging a more neutral posture when you’re behind the wheel— make even long drives more comfortable.
Celebrate these two models’ accolades when you stop by Ken Nelson Nissan to test-drive them for yourself.
