Did you know? Newton Nissan South hosts a car giveaway every year?
Well, it’s TRUE.
One lucky Middle TN high school student will drive away with a Nissan Versa this summer! For the third year in a row, we’ll be giving away a brand-new car for absolutely FREE. You read that right–no taxes or hidden fees. FREE! Why? Because we want to give back to our community, and one of the ways we can do that is by rewarding our hard-working students with a car giveaway!
So, how does it work?
- Sign up here.
- Drop off your report card at our Shelbyville location by June 11th. We’ll also need a copy of your (or your parent’s) driver’s license.
- Come to the big event on June 15th, at 6 PM!
How many entries can I have?
Students will receive an entry for every “A” on their report card! The more A’s, the more entries into drawing! Believe us…the odds will be in your favor! It is worth entering! On the night of the drawing, we will have food and drinks for everyone. We look forward to seeing you at the car giveaway!
Here are a few FAQs:
Question: I’m taking a class that only gives me a pass/fail grade, will a “P” for “Pass” count as an entry?
No. Only grades that are considered an “A” on the report card will be eligible.
Question: I am taking a college class during high school, will that class be eligible for an entry if I get an “A” in it?
That’s tricky. An “A” from a college/AP class will count only if the class is listed on the high school’s report card (not on a college report card).
Question: I am a college student. Can I enter the car giveaway?
No. The giveaway is currently only open to high school students in a Tennessee high school.
Question: Can I use my Driver’s Permit to enter the car giveaway?
Yes. You can now use your driver’s permit, driver’s license, or student ID to enter, as long as your parent or legal guardian has a valid driver’s license.
Question: My school does not give out report cards. Can I print off my grades from the school’s online portal?
We cannot accept copies or print offs of report cards, unless they are verifed. To verify your grades, go to the Welcome Desk at Newton Nissan South and ask our teammates to log in to your school’s portal (you will need to provide your login). From there, we can verify and print your grades!
Question: I totally forgot to bring in my report card and now the deadline has passed. Can you make an exception for me?
No. We are unable to make exceptions.
Question: My child brought in her grades but she won’t be able to make the car giveaway. Can I stand-in for her?
No. Students must be present to win.
We can’t wait to see you!
Don’t forget: the deadline for report cards is June 11th!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Katie: firstname.lastname@example.org

Two great trucks. Why choose Nissan?
When buying a truck, dependability is at the top of the list for anyone in the market. And both the 2018 Nissan Titan and the 2018 Ford F-150 have that quality. The Ford F-150 is the best selling truck in America, and the 2017 Titan model was named TruckTrend’s “Pickup Truck of the Year.” So between these two great models, how do you decide?
2018 Nissan Titan
The 2018 Nissan Titan offers three standard features that used to be available options, including:
- Standard column shifter,
- tow/haul mode with Downhill Speed Control,
- and tailgate assist.
Combine these with a wide array of available upgrade features, compared to the F-150:
- Available hill descent control (King and Crew Cab only),
- 120-volt power outlet in cargo bed,
- front and rear sonar system,
- and Intelligent Around View® Monitor (King and Crew Cab only).
These are just the beginning of the list of features and perks offered with the 2018 Nissan Titan.
2018 Ford F-150
America’s best-selling truck has some great additions to this year’s model. Update exterior styling, new interior color options, and an available audio system give fresh style to this trustworthy truck. In addition, it has made the rear-view camera a standard feature on all Ford models. Available options include:
- 4G LTE modem for a WiFi hot spot,
- Adaptive Cruise Control with stop-and-go functionality,
- and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection.
Seems like a neck-and-neck race for these two trucks,
so come and see us at Newton Nissan (and Newton Ford South!) to test drive one for yourself!
Nissan’s striking lineup of crossovers continues with the 2018 Nissan Murano. In 2017, the Murano was named “2017 Best 2-Row SUV for the Money.” It was also named by J.D. Power as the top vehicle in the mid-size SUV category. But with Nissan, awards are not the goal, or a stoplight for improvement; instead, constant innovation is the goal.
Technology to Stay Connected
The 2018 Nissan Murano features technological improvements to help keep drivers connected, without being distracted. This includes AppleCarPlay and Android Auto, NissanConnect with Navigation, and SiriusXM (with subscription). This is housed in a 8-inch color display with touch screen control.
On the inside, different trim levels offer different levels of luxury. Choose between a power liftgate (SL & Platinum), a Dual Panel moonroof (Platinum), heated rear seats and steering wheel (SL), and more! In addition, the SL Midnight Edition package, a popular package from 2017, carries over in many models and offers new content for the 2018 Nissan Murano.
Features to Keep You Safe
Finally, the best enhancements are always the ones that keep you and your passengers safe, and the Murano lacks none of them. Standard on all grades is Automatic Emergency Braking and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. Added to the SV grade are Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Intelligent Cruise control. In the SV Premier package, added to the rear-camera is the Intelligent Around View, which gives you full scope of what is behind, in front, and all around your vehicle as you reverse (see below).

The Rogue is Nissan’s best selling vehicle by far, but why is it so popular? Is it the safety features? The signature exterior style? The Nissan dependability? It’s all of this and more! Read on to see why the 2018 Nissan Rogue continues to be a favorite among car shoppers!
The Future: Hands-Free Driving?
The most noteworthy addition to the 2018 Nissan Rogue is the introduction of the available ProPilot Assist, which might be the closest thing that we can get to hands-free driving at the moment! Here’s how it works:
- Turn on the system by pressing the blue ProPilot Assist button, on the right side of your steering wheel.
- Set your Intelligent Cruise Control at your desired speed, like you normally would set it.
- The system will recognize the lane markers and steering assist will engage your steering wheel. These two icons will turn green on the driver’s display.
- It will remain active as long as the front camera can see both right and left side lane markers, and will disengage in heavy traffic.
In addition, it will be quickly overridden by your cues as the driver, such as when you engage your turn signal or turn the wheel. Though this does not give you permission to drive hands-free, it’s still a pretty cool feature! Remain alert & aware, keep your hands on the wheel, and let ProPilot Assist take care of the rest!
Standard Utility Features
All the 2018 Nissan Rogue models now come with standard Nissan Connect & Apple/Android Car Play, making it easier to stay both connected and focused as a driver. Other available and affordable utility features include: Motion Activated Liftgate, Intelligent Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, and Automatic Emergency Braking. Nissan continues to increase confidence, ease, and dependability!
