These Things Make The New Nissan GTR Roadworthy; Are You Ready For It?

The Nissan GTR is in a class all its own; not your average sedan, it’s a sleek-looking sports car that definitely gets attention out on the road. It has an expensive-looking design without a high price tag. What’s most notable about the 2017 Nissan GTR is that it can handle the road with ease and is a thrilling ride for any driving enthusiast. The best part about the Nissan GTR is everyone will think that you spent a fortune to get everything you wanted in a car and then some — but you’ll know that you didn’t.

Perhaps one of the biggest advances in the 2017 model are the exterior design upgrades. The style of the new Nissan, as well as what is under the hood, are both extremely cool. The interior has also been given a facelift, with a completely new dashboard that puts connectivity and infotainment at the tips of your fingers.

A car known for its sports performance, the Nissan GTR for sale, has a six-cylinder engine that is unparalleled in its class. More powerful than ever before, it has 565 horsepower and 467-pound feet of torque, which can give other cars in this class a run for their money. Going from 0 to 60 in three seconds puts this lower-priced sports car into a whole new category of awesomeness.

Although it costs slightly more than a sedan, the Nissan GTR still gets excellent gas mileage for the size and power of its engine. When you are showing it off around the city, it gets about 16 mpg, and it gets 22 mpg when you open it up to full capacity on the highway. It is one of the few sports cars that are practical and economical for day-to-day driving.

The 2017 Nissan GTR isn’t a weekend sports car that you can only take out when the weather permits. It has an all-wheel drive capacity that allows you to go all-terrain and handles ice and snow with ease. Included in the Cold Weather package, for those who live in colder regions, are all-season tires that contain a special type of coolant that keeps you safe on the road.

Designers of the 2017 Nissan GTR knew that handling was integral for this car. They put a lot of technology and thought into making sure that the GTR could outperform even some of the most prestigious sports cars. The adjustable shock absorbers make for a smooth transition in all types of driving conditions.

No expense in upgrades was spared on the 2017 Nissan GTR; it has noise cancellation and comfy seats to ensure that your driving experience is outstanding whether you are going across town or across the country. The 8-inch display allows for full integration with all your technology, which means that the car can convert into an entire entertainment package, with Bose speakers included. The rear-view camera also gives you the additional security of knowing what is in your path and can help those who aren’t all that good with parallel parking. An easy-to-maneuver feel allows you to find a place to park when you go urban.

What does a fast car need? A good braking system — which is good, because the Nissan GTR has one of the best in the industry. The braking test showed that it needs only 99 feet for the car to stop on a dime. The powerful brakes can come in handy when you are out on the open road and want to open it up.

Unlike other sports cars, the Nissan GTR has a cool and innovative design with all the upgrades. What it doesn’t have is the high price tag that can prevent someone from getting the car of their dreams. For someone looking for a high-performance, awesome and sleek-looking car, the 2017 Nissan GTR is the perfect way to make heads turn.

A powerful engine, excellent safety features, and state-of-the-art technology all combine to make the Nissan GTR the perfect sports car. It’s an excellent all-around car that doesn’t need the TLC, is more practical for day-to-day transportation, and it makes a huge impression without putting a dent in the pocket.

5 Signs Your Car Has an Electrical Problem

Nowadays, most cars have a complex electrical system that controls most of their functions. While you’re probably glad that you can operate your mirrors and windows with just the push of a button, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the system is infallible.

Car Electrical Problem?

Unlike the creak of a brake or the rattling of the engine, auto electrical issues are like a silent attacker. You don’t feel them until they strike. That makes them harder to detect and diagnose than most mechanical problems. One morning, out of the blue apparently, you’ll find yourself with a car that won’t start.

The electrical system of a car is very complex, comprising of the battery and its cables, the alternator, the starter and the computer system for newer models. That makes it difficult for an untrained eye to follow everything. Repair shops use specialized tools that connect to a car’s computer to identify the components that aren’t working.

However, there are some signs that can tell you if your vehicle has an electrical problem, even if you’re not familiar with the nitty gritty of an electrical system.

1. The Car Won’t Start

This is the most common electrical issue. Most likely the car doesn’t start because of damage to the battery, alternator or starter.

When you turn the key on, and the engine doesn’t start, check if the interior lights come on when you open the door. If they do, chances are you have a problem with the alternator. If the lights don’t come on and nothing happens, most likely you have a dead battery.

If you hear a clicking or grinding noise when turning the ignition, then you should check the starter before anything else.

2. The Battery Is Damaged

The battery is the heart of a car’s electrical system. It should be checked regularly to look for any visible damage, such as stains or corrosion at the terminals. These tell you that your battery is leaking, nearing the end of its life or having other problems.

A battery lasts around five years or less if you live in hot climates. Its lifespan can be further shortened if there’s a bad battery cell or the alternator isn’t working properly.

Depending on the severity of the damage your battery may need repairs, or you might have to replace it.

3. The Lights Dim While Driving

If the headlights, brake lights and dashboard lights dim while you drive at low speed or idling, you may have an electrical problem. Usually, it means that there are loose wires, the battery is at the end of its life, severely discharged or can’t hold a charge, or that there’s a problem with the alternator or voltage regulator.

A loose or cracked belt on an alternator means that it can’t work properly and can’t support the required battery voltage.

4. The Brake Lights Don’t Work

Have you changed the bulbs in both brake lights but they still don’t work, although your car runs perfectly fine? Then it never was a burnt out bulb problem, but a fuse problem. Another telltale sign of the same issue is if some specific parts or accessories of the car, such as the radio, won’t work.

However, don’t rush into replacing the fuse. First, find out the cause since a blown fuse could also mean that an electrical device or wiring is using too much voltage. If you find that you need to replace the fuses too often, then they weren’t the source of the problem in the first place, and you should look further when troubleshooting your car’s electrical issues.

5. The Car Smells

A burning smell anywhere near your car is a bad sign. Amongst others, it’s caused by an electrical short circuit.
An electrical circuit is designed to carry a specific amount of energy, and when there’s a problem, it has to support more power than what it can handle. When that happens, you’ll notice a smell of melting or burning plastic around wires, connections, insulation or fuses.

These are the most obvious signs of electrical problems that anyone can see. At the same time, they are just assumptions on what’s not working related specifically to the electrical system. They could, just as well, hide issues on other components.

Furthermore, as mentioned in the beginning, electrical problems are silent attackers, and they often go undetected. You won’t know until it’s too late to drive your car on its four wheels to an auto repair shop. It’s best to have your car checked regularly by professionals to avoid more serious and more expensive problems later.
