Choosing the Perfect Nissan For Back-to-School

October 30th, 2018 by

As summer is coming to an end and fall is drawing nearer and nearer everyday, parents and students alike are preparing for the new school year. Constructing the perfect class schedule, arranging carpools and gathering up the right textbooks can be difficult tasks, but deciding and purchasing a new car shouldn’t be. We will help you decide which Nissan vehicle is best fit for your back-to-school needs.

What to Consider

Whether you’re a parent or student looking for that new auto addition to your family, there are a couple of specifics to consider:

  • Reliability: Be sure to pick a car that won’t leave you in the dust or late for class. Having a reliable car is of the utmost importance. To ensure the highest reliability after purchase, schedule regular maintenance checks with one of our knowledgeable technicians at Katy Nissan.
  • Fuel Economy: Being a college student isn’t an easy financial task, especially when constantly worrying about filling up the car. Choose a vehicle with a high MPG that endures the drive home for the weekend, waiting in traffic and the carpool line; your wallet will thank you! Many Nissan vehicles have competitive city/highway gas mileage that will support any college student or parent.
  • Roominess: Now that college students are off on their own, they appreciate their space, whether it be in their rooms or in their car. Katy Nissan offers a variety of vehicles that provide the right amount of space for moving to college, accommodating friends or daily pickup.
  • Safety: Sending your kids off is hard enough and while worrying about their safety is inevitable, Nissan has equipped each vehicle with Nissan Intelligent Mobility, a technology that helps provide ultra awareness and can even help out in situations when needed.
