Jag was very patient and accommodating during our smooth transaction. Will definitely recommend him with friends looking for a new ride. Did not expect to bring home a new toy today.

Have been trying for four days now to get Eric to answer a question I have about a used vehicle. Numerous emails sent to him and he either ignores it or does not answer the question. I have asked him to have another salesperson help me but so far he is ignoring that request too

nissan new and used vehicles in seattle tacoma kirkland washingtonOne downside of vehicle ownership is how the sun’s rays can wear a paint finish, even when you take the best care in maintaining its exterior. However, the engineers at Nissan have found a way to help mitigate this problem with their Xenon Weather-Ometer (XWO) – a sunlight UV exposure tool that evaluates material durability in different climate conditions.
 
Based in Nissan’s technical center in Farmington Hills, Michigan, the XWO uses a 4,000-watt xenon light bulb designed to emit the same wavelengths of light as the sun. But, since the tool is enclosed in a controlled environment, it can run 24 hours a day without interruption from cloudy weather or nighttime skies. This also enables Nissan the ability to complete their UV exposure tests in half the time compared to tests that use actual sunlight.
 
The XWO can hold 100 material samples at once of new paints, plastics and other vehicle elements to test them before using them in the production of their vehicles, like the Titan or Rogue. The samples rotate around the light bulb to simulate how the sun moves around a car over the course of a day. Nissan still tests how materials react to UV rays using actual sunlight, but the XWO helps to accelerate the process by weeding out inferior materials and reducing waste.
 
To learn more about Nissan’s XWO technology and other quality tests, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington, for details.
