Nissan Class-Leading Fuel Economy

Uftring Nissan is proud to be a Nissan dealership for many reasons, but one important reason is the exceptional fuel economy ratings of several Nissan models. The Nissan is one of the top manufacturers of the automotive industry when it comes to the best fuel economy you can buy. The purchase of a Nissan is not only smart for your wallet, it’s smart for the environment and the economy.

The Nissan Versa Note has a class-leading fuel economy of 40 MPG highway. If you think a vehicle with incredible economy would be out of your price range, you are mistaken. The new Versa Notes start out at $13,990. Save money with the purchase of your car, save even more money while driving it. You’ll save more money than ever on your monthly gas budget not having to fill up at the pump so often.

The new 2014 Sentra’s fuel economy is just under the Versa Note at 27 MPG city, 36 MPG highway. With the horsepower, comfort and luxury of a Sentra, high thirties for highway MPG makes it nearly impossible to beat outside the Nissan brand.  The Altima, a customer favorite, ranks up to 27 MPG city, and 38 MPG highway. Just like the Versa Note and Sentra, you’ll save more money at the pump than you can imagine. The future of the best in fuel economy is only at Uftring Nissan. Stop in today for a test drive any of our vehicles or view our latest inventory online. Nissan – innovation (and fuel economy) that excites.

The Power of a Subaru

We love the power of a Subaru all-wheel-drive. After watching a viral video this week of a Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid towing a large UPS truck out of a deep snow bank, we weren’t too surprised by the results. The ability of an AWD Subaru is absolutely incredible, and this is a real life example to prove just why we love the Subaru brand so much.

Ezra Dyer puts a Subaru to the test. Do you think the UPS truck can be pulled out without a tow truck? Do you think a Subaru can do the trick? The answer is YES! Watch the video here. If you don’t want to worry about driving in snowy, icy, dangerous weather, a Subaru gives you absolute control and stability. You can afford luxury, you can afford sportiness, and you can afford a durable Subaru that will get you anywhere you need to go, in any condition. Visit us right here at the Uftring Automall in East Peoria to test drive any of our 2014 Subarus. Click here to view our complete Subaru inventory, new or used.

Winter isn't over

We know you wouldn’t rather drive in the awful winter weather over a beautiful, sunny, summer day. If you don’t have an all-wheel-drive vehicle, sometimes the roads can make for a difficult challenge as you adventure out in a snowstorm or drive to work on ice covered streets. It’s always good to remind yourself to travel safe. We’ve collected some winter driving tips that are important to read over and remember that while some of these tips might seem like common sense, keeping them in the front of your mind can be most helpful in the most dangerous situations.

1.    Snow Tires
Make sure the tires you have on your vehicle are made to help grip on to packed snow and ice. Bad tires can lead you to losing control of your vehicle more often than having good tires that are meant to trek through anything.

2.    Tire Pressure
Cold temperatures tend to decrease your tire pressure. Check your tires in frigid temperatures and make sure they have enough air. Pressure that is either too high or too low can damage your tires.

3.    Use your signals
From time to time, we all forget to use our blinkers as we are changing lanes. Signals are necessary in any driving situation, especially when the weather is bad and your vision is impaired due to snow, or any type of precipitation.

4.    Wait it out
Sometimes, AWD or not, it’s just not safe to go out. Really think about your venture. Do you absolutely have to drive somewhere? Is there any way you can wait until the storm has passed or until your road has been taken care of by your city? Life happens, we all have to get to work, pick up our kids at school, but if you’re just venturing out to get groceries, it might be better to wait it out.

5.    Pull over

Have you ever been in a snowstorm that you literally can’t see past the hood of your car? Don’t stop abruptly, that could easily cause an accident. If you can’t see, that’s code red to pull over slowly with your hazard lights on and call for help. Sometimes, it’s just not worth the risk to be out on the roads.

2014 Ram 1500 Fuel Economy

The United States Environmental Protection Agency  (EPA) announced earlier this month the fuel economy numbers for the new 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel truck. If you haven’t already guessed, the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is the most fuel-efficient pickup truck in the industry right now.  And remember that the 2014 Ram is the Motor Trend Truck of the Year – for two years in a row!

The EPA’s new fuel economy rating is at 20/28/23 MPG. In other words, if you’re looking for a heavy-duty truck that won’t break the bank, you’ve found it. This half ton Ram gets 28 MPG highway fuel economy which is an even better rating than the top rated small pickup. If you’re interested in the ’14 Ram 1500, stop in today or give us a call.
