Top 5 Nissan Vehicles for Reliability
When the time comes to buy a vehicle, a host of criteria must be taken into account. Road handling, space, versatility, fuel consumption, and performance are just a few of the many considerations.
Reliability is certainly one of the elements that greatly influences the purchase of a particular model. After all, if you want your vehicle to meet your needs, you don't want sitting in the shop for repairs all the time.
In this regard, when you take a look at the family of Nissan products offered by your dealer in Saguenay, L'Ami Junior Nissan, you'll realize just how spoiled you are. Online or in our dealership, discover our vast inventory of new Nissan vehicles and pre-owned Nissans. Leave with your sedan, your SUV or your minivan with a flexible and adapted financing plan.
The manufacturer's lineup has an excellent track record in this respect, and some vehicles stand out in particular. Let's take a closer look at them.
Not surprisingly, the most popular model in the Nissan family, the Rogue, is also among the most reliable vehicles. The Rogue has been completely redesigned for 2021, but its mechanics have essentially remained the same. In fact, there is still a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine under the hood, and it has proven to be reliable throughout the years 2014-2020, with the second generation model.
It is a safe bet to anticipate the same kind of result with the new model, as it benefits from an improved version of this unit. Thus, when you opt for a Rogue, you can sleep soundly.
The Murano SUV has been with us in the same form since 2015, but its design hasn't aged a bit. And that's as true for the exterior as it is for the interior. Better yet, the ride is so solid and smooth that it feels like a freshly minted product. Imagine then what Nissan has in store for us with the next generation that is expected in the next few months.
The best news about the Murano is that its 3.5-litre V6 engine, a cornerstone of reliability, will probably be back. It offers power, unbelievable flexibility, and very reasonable fuel economy. And it's RELIABLE!
Really, this is a model to discover.
Another example reliability is the new Nissan Qashqai. What was beneficial for us in its case is that when it came to us in 2018, we were receiving a model that had been offered for several years in Europe. Consequently, all the little bumps that may have affected it in its early days had been dealt with. It's a product that offers proven mechanics, a tested suspension and transmissions that have been around for a while.
The result was spectacular in terms of sales. Indeed, many of you have recognized its qualities, whether in terms of handling, versatility, value for money and, of course, reliability.
If there is one model that embodies Nissan more than any other, it is the sporty Nissan Z. Available since 1969, it represents the ultimate in Japanese driving pleasure. The current model has been on the market for a little over 10 years, but you don't mess with a winning recipe when you have one on hand. And its 3.5-liter V6 engine has been a textbook example, so much so that this car is a cut above many competitors, especially German ones, in terms of reliability.
Incidentally, there will be a new version of the Z this year. We can expect the same great recipe.
Finally, let's complete our tour with the Nissan Altima, the most popular car in the lineup. Available without interruption since 1993, it has shown a consistent record of reliability for over 20 years. In fact, when you buy it, you know what to expect from this vehicle, bound to give you complete satisfaction in terms of performance.
In short, you can't ask for more when you buy a new vehicle. Your L'Ami Junior Nissan dealer in Saguenay is waiting for you!
