Keep calling this dealership for one month to get a buyout price for my leasing truck. Everytime transfered to this lady, always no one answers. Left tones of voice message, never get replied.

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

Jag and Cherise were excellent to work with. We set up a deal over the phone, and when I went in to the dealership everything was ready and organized. I was in and out in just over an hour. A big plus when having a long drive from out of town!

Nissan is up to some pretty neat stuff, Kirkland residents. Through using a special tool called the Xenon Weather-Ometer (XWO), the auto manufacturer is able to examine material durability in different climates and situations, including while undergoing sunlight UV exposure tests.

In an effort to determine the effects of solar energy on paint, plastics, and certain interior car materials, the XWO tool utilizes the assistance of a 4,000-watt Xenon bulb that bakes as many as 100 different colored samples at the same time. This bulb mimics the wavelengths of the sun. Further, the samples actually rotate around the Xenon light during testing, mimicking the earth’s orbit. Once finished, the Nissan engineers check the materials at different intervals to detect any changes, thereby helping to ensure quality and durability down the line for auto buyers.



In sum, the brilliance of the XWO tool and the accelerated weather chamber used is that Nissan is capable of accurately recreating real-world, natural conditions in a lab environment. They’re therefore able to ensure their quality standards are truly second-to-none.

Give us a call at Kirkland Nissan today to hear more about the innovative XWO tool!
