Introducing Newton Fastpass at Newton Nissan South

We’ve all heard the new craze: buy your next car “fully online,” right? This may sound too good to be true, and sometimes it is.

  • Submitting Your Credit Application
  • And even scanning in documents such as your driver’s license

The best part is, you can do all of this from inside your own home! A representative can chat with you through the process at any time, and you can even schedule for us to bring the test drive to you.

Will I still need to come to the store?

We will still need to see you in store to make sure the vehicle meets your needs & wants, and so that you can sign your paperwork. We will also introduce you to our amazing service department, so that you can keep receiving the best vehicle service moving forward too.

    End of Summer Maintenance Tips

    We know it’s a bummer that summer is ending, but the upcoming season hopefully comes with  cooler temperatures! With a transition into a new season though, your car may need a little TLC. Newton Nissan South can help.

    Here are a few maintenance tips to help you and your vehicle “fall” into this season change--many of which you can look over yourself before bringing your vehicle in for its next service appointment.

    1. Buy new wipers -- Consumer Report recommends changing out your car’s wiper blades every 6-12 months. The summer heat can especially dry out your wipers, so it’s a good thing to look them over and consider changing them.
    2. Clean off the battery -- Make sure you are ready to go and won’t get stranded due to a dead battery. Simply wipe it off and inspect all bolts and connection points. Next time you’re near Newton Nissan South, have them test the battery to make sure it internally intact as well.
    3. Inspect the tires -- Did you take a lot of road trips this summer? Take a look to make sure your tires are still doing well. Our staff can also make sure they are good to go as well.
    4. Check out your heat and defroster -- Make sure these are working properly before the weather turns colder, so that you still have time to get them repaired before winter.
    5. Check under the hood -- You may not know exactly what everything is under the hood, but you can still perform a basic check to make sure there are no evidenced leaks, cracks, loose wires, etc. Also check fluid levels, if possible.
    6. Schedule an oil change -- Most cars are driven often enough to need an oil change every season. So take a cue from Mother Nature and schedule your next oil change with us at Newton Nissan South.

    Along with your oil change, our technicians will perform a free multi-point inspection to see if there are any further problem areas that need to be addressed before winter.

    Trunk or Treat at Newton Nissan South

    For the 3rd year, Newton Nissan South is preparing to host its annual Trunk or Treat event. This family-friendly event also doubles as a fundraiser for a few local organizations, including: Cascade High School band and Shelbyville-Bedford County Humane Society.

    These organizations bring in their own vehicles and decorations, and Newton Nissan South provides the candy, as well as free pizza and activities for the families that come. For each trunk that participates in the event, we make a donation to their group. It is an easy and fun way for these local students and non-profits to earn extra money for their yearly budgets.

    In addition, local businesses can also join in the fun as sponsors. Last year, we had our first sponsor in Global Homes, Inc. They were able to set up a trunk and tent with information about who they are, and network with the families coming through the line for their candy.

    What started small 2 years ago has grown into a major event for local families. We had over 3,000 people come through last year!

    This year’s event will be on October 27, 2019 from 3-5 PM. Once again, we will have free pizza, bounce houses, and more! Kids as well and parents are welcome to dress up, but we do ask that there are no scary costumes for younger children.

    If you have any questions or want to sponsor this event, please visit us here or email Katie Rosenbaum at

    Why is tire rotation important? It's a common question. Rotating your tires as part of your scheduled vehicle maintenance has many cost saving and safety benefits.

    Some of the Benefits of Tire Rotation Include:

    • it helps maintain an even amount of tread wear on all 4 tires
    • extends the life of your tires
    • improved gas mileage
    • smoother ride

    All of these benefits save you money, both short term (gas money) and long term (protecting your suspension). Also, during tire rotation, your service advisor is able to look over the undercarriage components and catch any problems in the very early stages, which can also save you money.

    Maintain your Warranty Protection

    Tire companies usually require regular tire rotation in order to keep the warranty valid. An easy way to remember is to rotate your tires whenever you get your oil changed. While this is a good recommendation, ask your service advisor or call us at Newton Nissan South for advice on when to have your tires rotated for your specific vehicle and tire type.

    Remember: Lack of Tire Rotation is the #1 cause of irregular wear.

    Whether you are doing the job at home or bringing your vehicle into Newton Nissan South to have one of our professionals do the work for you, there are a few things to keep in mind:

    • Rotate your tires at every other oil change or every 5000 miles
    • Follow the guidelines in your vehicle's owner manual
    • When the tread depth on your tires differs greatly, you should always place the tires with the most amount of tread on the back.

    Although regularly rotating your tires can help to maintain an even amount of wear, it can not fix irregular wear caused by faulty or worn mechanical parts, improper inflation pressures or alignment issues.

    For more information, check out this helpful video.

    Why should you get your oil changed?

    Changing your oil is one of the more inexpensive services for your regular car maintenance. Even though this maintenance is fairly inexpensive, it plays a huge roll in the longevity of your engine and saves you from forking over large sums of cash down the road.

    The Role of Oil

    Engine oil provides three key functions:

    1. It keeps engine components working together.
    2. The inside of an engine, a place where there are thousands of controlled detonations happening every minute, can be a hot place, and oil helps draw heat away from the combustion chamber.
    3. It also helps prevent carbon and varnishes from accumulating in the engine.

    What Oil Should I Use?

    There are many types of engine oil, but it’s pretty easy to determine what kind you should use in your car. Your owner’s manual should tell you the appropriate viscosity of oil – like 5W-30, for instance – that your engine requires, and the viscosity may also be stamped on the oil reservoir cap on the engine itself. If you have questions about what oil your car takes give Newton Nissan a call and we can let you know what oil you need. At Newton Nissan South, we only use synthetic oil, as we believe it is the best performing oil for your engine.

    How Often Should I Change My Oil?

    Oil changes are often recommended when a certain mileage or time limit is reached. The most conventional interval is 3,000 miles or three months. The good news is, at Newton Nissan South, have the least expensive synthetic oil change around! Call us for more information.

    What if I Don’t Change My Oil?

    A major problem is that there will begin to be buildup in the cooler parts of the engine, like the crankcase and around the camshafts and valves. This can lead to carbon deposits, or sludge, coming out of the old oil. Which could require an engine cleaning or force you to replace worn-out piston rings. The costs of these repairs can be expensive.

    On the worse end of things, the pistons could seize or the camshafts may become damaged. Costs for these repairs would make a few oil changes look like pocket change. Regular oil changes are like really cheap engine insurance.

    2019 Nissan Pathfinder Profile: Safety

    As the name suggests, the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder is an ideal vehicle for adventure and exploration. Whether you’re visiting uncharted territory or headed to the old familiar places, safety is essential for your driving experience, and the Pathfinder delivers with advanced features and technologies geared toward keeping you safe.

    Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ -- 4 Key Features

    The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder offers four advanced driver-assistive features as part of its Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ safety suite.

    1. Automatic Emergency Braking monitors the speed of your Pathfinder and the distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you; if you should suddenly need to brake, AEB can do so automatically to help mitigate or avoid a collision.
    2. Rear Cross Traffic Alert acts as a pair of eyes in the back of your head, notifying you if an oncoming vehicle is detected when you’re backing out of a parking spot or driveway.
    3. Intelligent Cruise Control alleviates some of the stress by maintaining a consistent speed based on your situation, including the speed of the vehicle ahead of you.
    4. Blind Spot Warning notifies you if a vehicle is hiding undetected in your blind spot, helping to avoid a collision.

    Other advanced safety features

    The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder ensures complete and total confidence with a range of safety features to cover you on the road and beyond. The Traction Control System and Vehicle Dynamic Control help keep you on your intended path by automatically adjusting braking and throttle when the situation demands. The standard Anti-lock Braking System prevents wheel lock-up during emergency maneuvers, and Brake Assist will help apply maximum braking force if the Pathfinder senses that you are in an emergency situation. If a collision should occur, the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System minimizes your risk of injury with optimal protection.

    The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder earned the Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (when equipped with LED low-beam headlights), confirming its place among the safest vehicles in its class. With cutting-edge driver-assist technologies and other advanced features, the Pathfinder offers confidence and peace of mind wherever the road — or lack thereof — takes you.

    Newton Nissan South's 4th Annual Car Giveaway!

    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 fourth 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?

    1. Sign up here.
    2. Drop off your report card at our Shelbyville location by June 10th. We'll also need a copy of your (or your parent's) driver's license.
    3. Come to the big event on June 14th, 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 10th!

    Good luck!

    2019 Nissan Altima vs 2019 Toyota Camry | Which is the Best Family Car?

    2019 Nissan Altima The 2019 Nissan Altima & the 2019 Toyota Camry go head to head in MotorTrend's March Mayhem event. In this round, they compare the two vehicles that are the newest in their market, the best selling, and the most well known to determine which is the best family car.

    It's What's on the Inside that Counts

    While these two vehicles may appear pretty similar from a distance, on the inside the differences are striking. While containing most of the same technology and infotainment--except for the standard AndroidAuto connectivity that separates the Altima from Camry--the materials used in the Camry are lackluster compared to the Altima's finely accented zero gravity front seats. The Altima also offers more front leg room, standard remote engine start, and standard Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. 2019 Nissan Altima In the rear, the seats of the Camry open narrowly, making it difficult to fit in a car seat. The Altima rear doors open up to almost 90 degrees, making it extremely easy to install a car seat. The Altima also has the standard  Rear Door Alert system, which gives audible and visual heads up in the instrument panel, reminding the driver to check the back seat.

    More Affordable

    The 2019 Nissan Altima is also more affordable than the Camry, with a base price starting at just over $30k for the Altima, while the Camry starts at close to $35k. With more space, power, and technology, the Altima keeps you feeling sporty, while keep your family safe.

    Commonly Misspelled Words

    This week when you hear our favorite radio voice, Mike Abbondanza, be listening for some references to misspelled words. Here it is for you non-radio-listening, Spotify-streaming types:
    "That's just wrong! Wrong with a captital-R... or is it a W?" It got us thinking... what are other commonly misspelled words? Here are 10 of our favorite examples:
    1. Recieve -- remember that it's "i before e except after c." Correct spelling: Receive.
    2. Definately -- also sometimes "defiantly," which is just too harsh. correct spelling: definitely.
    3. Wendesday -- anyone else say "wed - nes - day" in their head? Just me? Correct spelling: Wednesday.
    4. Sandwhich -- the extra "h" is not actually necessary. Correct spelling: sandwich.
    5. Seperate -- easily corrected by another in-your-head pronunciation: "sep-AH-rate." Correct spelling: separate.
    6. They're, there, & their -- easily the easiest words to misuse. "They're" = "they are;" "There" is for places; "their" is a possessive pronoun.
    7. Principal or principle? -- remember that your principal at school is your "pal"; your principles are your values or standards.
    8. Tommorow -- this one is especially fun to misspell while writing in cursive. Correct spelling: tomorrow.
    9. Goverment -- you actually have to "govern" to have a government. So don't forget the "n" in there!
    10. Beutiful -- here's a fun video to help you remember this one, beautiful:

    What are Pre-Auction Line (PAL) Cars?

    We all like options, right? At Newton Nissan South, we want to give our customers options in every aspect: vehicles, financing, salesperson, and more. But of course the most important choice is the vehicle! We stock over 500 cars at any given time, new and used, so you can have a fun & simple shopping journey finding the perfect vehicle for you and your family. For new Nissan models, we stock a multitude of trim levels and packages that meet your needs, whether with the smartest technology or the safest features. For used vehicles, we have a couple of different options:
    • Used Cars -- some of these might still have their manufacturer warranty, some might have our certified warranty
    • Newton Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles --  we back these with our own warranty, which you can read about here
    • Pre-Auction Line (PAL) cars -- these are sold "as is," with no warranty (keep reading for more information)
    Pre-Auction Line vehicles, or "PAL" for short, are available to the public for a limited time before being released to independent dealerships. A free Carfax® report is still available for these vehicles. PAL vehicles fall outside of Newton Motor Group's traditional inventory offerings and are sold as-is without a warranty. Pre-Auction Line

    FAQ's about Pre-Auction Line Vehicles

    Are PAL cars still inspected?

    Yes, PAL cars still receive an inspection; however, repairs or service work are generally not performed. This is to keep the vehicle as affordable as possible.

    How do I know if the vehicle I'm interested in is a PAL car?

    Pal Cars are priced more affordably and typically have high mileage. Additionally, during your time at the dealership, we will go over important notes about the vehicle's condition and have you sign documents that state you understand that the vehicle is sold "as is," meaning you take full responsibility for any service work that the vehicle may need because it has not been reconditioned like our other used vehicles have been.

    What happens if something goes wrong with my PAL car after I leave?

    Why Buy a Newton Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

    Newton Pre-Owned We know there are a lot of options when considering a vehicle purchase. New, used, certified pre-owned--it can get a little confusing. For most people, the most important piece of the car-buying puzzle is price, right? You want to know you are getting the best deal. At Newton Nissan South, we want you to get the best deal as well the best experience possible. However, there's more than just price & experience involved in your deal. The vehicle itself must be in the best condition possible, especially used or pre-owned vehicles. Keep reading for more information on how we re-condition our Newton Certified Pre-Owned vehicles.

    What work goes into a Newton Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

    The bottom line of every certified pre-owned vehicle is the 170-point inspection, ensuring that every inch of the car is inspected. If repairs are needed, we will cover these. The following (and more) are covered in the 170-point inspection:
    • Air Bags/Seat Belts
    • Unibody/Frame
    • Tires and Wheels
    • Engine/Fuel
    • Electrical System
    • Suspension/Steering
    • Road Test
    During this inspection, we decide what needs to be repaired. For example, if the tire treads are extremely worn down, we will go ahead and put new tires on the vehicle. During your visit with us, we will go over these details with you to make sure you know what work was needed and how we took care of the vehicle -- so that you don't immediately have service bills on top of your purchase! Please note that we do our best, but we do not claim perfection or that a vehicle will never have problems. Again, we will be very transparent up front about any issues we saw. Don't hesitate to ask us questions! Newton Pre-Owned

    What's included with a Newton Pre-Owned Certified Vehicle?

    In addition to the work that goes into re-conditioning a used vehicle, we certify some of our used inventory so that you know you are getting even more value in your purchase with us. This Newton Certified Program includes:
    • 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Warranty*
    • SiriusXM Satellite Radio with 3-month trial subscription
    • Optional Extended Protection Plan
    • CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™
    At Newton Nissan South, we take pride in our used inventory. We don't just give them a car wash, a once-over, and park them out front. We make sure they are thoroughly ready to go before you make your decision and drive off our lot! Let us help you find your next Newton Certified Pre-Owned vehicle today!       **Please note: our cheaper, pre-auction line cars undergo an inspection to a lesser degree to keep them affordable for customers looking for a more inexpensive option.

    The Newton Advantage | Frequently Asked Questions

    Newton Advantage Starting in 2019, Newton Nissan South launched the Newton Advantage , a new benefit of purchasing your new Nissan with us here in Shelbyville, just a short drive north of Nashville. We offer this because we want to offer the best to our customers, who are more like family to us. Included in the Newton Advantage is a 2-year Carefree Maintenance Package and a  Lifetime Warranty. Here are some  frequently asked questions about the Newton Advantage:

    What vehicles qualify for the Newton Advantage?

    The Newton Advantage applies to all  new vehicle  purchases. We also have a Newton Certified Pre-Owned warranty on select  used vehicles.

    How long is the "lifetime" warranty really good for?

    The Lifetime Warranty is valid for as long as you own the vehicle. You simply must return to our service center every 5 years for a free inspection. The Carefree Maintenance plan is for 24 months (or 30,000 miles), which gives you 4 oil changes, tire rotations, lube, and filter changes.

    How much does it cost?

    The Newton Advantage is absolutely free. We want to be your Nissan dealership for life, not just as a customer, but as our family & friends.

    Where am I covered?

    The  Carefree Maintenance Plan requires that you get your oil changes & tire rotations here at our service center in Shelbyville, which is only a short drive from Murfreesboro, Franklin, and Manchester. You can trust our Nissan-certified technicians and enjoy free coffee, snacks, and WiFi while you wait. However, there is no requirement to get your car's service for the  Lifetime Warranty done here. Just follow the manufacturer's recommended maintenance plan and keep all your records.

    Can the Lifetime Warranty be transferred?

    No. The Lifetime Warranty expires when your vehicle is sold, traded, or deemed a total loss.

    What exactly is covered?

    The following components, parts, and labor are covered: Engine, Transmission, Transfer Case, Drive Axle, and Seals & Gaskets. Some restrictions do apply, so ask your service adviser for more details on exactly what is and what is not covered.

Introducing: the 2018 Murano

2018 Nissan Murano 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. 2018 Nissan Murano

Luxurious Interior

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). 2018 Nissan Murano

2018 Nissan Titan vs. 2018 Ford F-150

2018 Nissan Titan vs. 2018 Ford F-150

2018 Nissan Titan vs. 2018 Ford F-150

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!

Newton Nissan South's Car Giveaway 2018!

Car Giveaway

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?

  1. Sign up here.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!

Good luck!

Jaci's Favorite Things: The 2018 Nissan Rogue

2018 Nissan Rogue

Local Grammy-nominated artist Jaci Velasquez recently took the 2018 Nissan Rogue for a month-long test drive, and she rated it in 2nd place among her top three favorite vehicles! From its advanced technology to its sleek, black exterior and leather interior, Jaci loved this vehicle. We think you will too!

"The Superhero"

Jaci dubbed this Rogue more than just a car -- "It's a superhero!" Her primary reason for calling it a superhero is the technology. This begins with the key fob, by which you can not only unlock and lock your car, but you can also enter your car without pressing the button at all. As long as the key fob is on your person, you and your passenger can get in the car by pressing the button on the door handle. In addition, with the key fob, you can remotely start up your car! "Who needs keys? You've got superheroes like Nissan!"

All the technology you want

On the inside, the Rogue doesn't miss a beat in continuing to impress with the best lineup of technology. First, the touch screen houses all you need to stay connect: Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Navigation, and the Rear-View camera. In addition to the rear-view, though, is the front view camera. This shows you the sides and front of your vehicle, and warns you of potential objects. Behind the wheel, you can also choose what you want to see, which is also where you are warned when you drift lanes. The steering wheel itself will shake to alert you to stay in your lane alongside a couple of beeps.

"This car practically drives itself!"

2018 Nissan Rogue "But the best part of the 2018 Nissan Rogue is the ProPilot Assist," Jaci says.  This driver assist technology may not let you fall asleep with your passengers on long car rides (yet), but what it can do are these key things:
  1. Keep your speed the same, even in slowing and speeding traffic
  2. Maintain a set distance between your car and the vehicle ahead
  3. Keep you in your lane (note: you must keep your hands on the wheel)
You simply press the blue button (pictured) on the steering wheel, set your speed, and you're all set! You will see if there's a car in front, what your actual speed is, and if you are in your lane. Again, you still have to stay focused on the road ahead, but with your feet and hands fairly relaxed as you go!  

We love the 2018 Nissan Rogue!

View our inventory today, and come see us to take a test drive yourself!

In between, we are thoroughly inspecting your vehicle as we take care of your oil change, balance your tires, and do necessary maintenance work and repairs. You've entrusted your vehicle to us, and we take that very seriously. Which is why, in the coming days, you will see a slight increase to your bill - specifically for an oil change.

  1. Customer Service - we're consistently rated 5-stars on sites like Google and DealerRater because we take care of our customers. YOU are our number one priority!

  3. Convenient Hours - We're open from 7:30 AM - 6 PM Monday-Friday, and 8 AM - 4 PM on Saturdays. Anytime you need us, you can come see us.

3rd Annual Student Car Giveaway  

Newton Nissan Car Giveaway

Good Grades = Free Car

Ashley, a 10th grader from Community High School in Shelbyville, won a brand new car this weekend because of her good grades. Ashley was so shocked, saying, “I just can’t believe it...I mean, ME?!” She will be getting her permit soon, and is excited to begin driving her new car! Her little sister and mom were also surprised and thankful for this gift to their family. The annual Newton Nissan Car Giveaway event is open to all students enrolled in a Tennessee high school. Since the program started in 2009, Newton Nissan has given away ten cars to students in the Nashville area.

About the Grand Prize

The grand prize was a 2018 Nissan Versa, valued at $15,330. “Newton Nissan pays for both the car and sales taxes, so Ashley doesn’t have to pay anything for her new car,” says Mike Abbondanza, Newton Nissan’s Vice President. Students enter the contest by bringing in their report card from the most recent school year. Students increase their chances of winning by making good grades, since they receive one entry per “A” on their report card.

Other Fun Happenings This Year

But there were more prizes to be had! We had several trivia rounds for other students to win smaller prizes like gift cards and very large candy bars! Add that to free food and a drawing for a free oil change for the parents -- it was a fun night for all! We love celebrating all these students, who have worked so hard all year long, and we especially love giving back to our community in this way. If you weren't able to join us this year, we hope that you will next year for the Newton Nissan Car Giveaway!

Congratulations again to Ashley!

Community Spotlight: Boys & Girls Club Bedford County

Boys & Girls Club Bedford County Newton Nissan South is proud to sponsor local non-profits, schools, sports teams, and community events in and around Bedford County! This month in the spotlight is the Boys & Girls Club of Bedford County! You may recognize this name as a national program, but did you know that they are located right in our backyard here in Shelbyville as well?

Their Mission

The primary goal of the Boys & Girls Club here is to provide year round after school programming for kids ages 5-13. Unlike other programs, the Boys & Girls Club is not limited by the poverty line on who can be helped. Instead, it is a heavily discounted program so that anyone in need can receive affordable after school care for their children.

What They Do

The Boys & Girls Club is a well-rounded program that not only seeks to help students academically, but also give them life skills that they can take home with them. On top of homework help, they plan field trips like swimming and bowling to keep the kids active. They rely on volunteers helping out with this, many of whom are TN Promise college students. If you are interested in volunteering or enrolling your child, you can call their office at (931) 735-6525.

Upcoming Event: End of Summer Carnival

The way Newton Nissan South got involved with the Boys & Girls Club was by becoming a sponsor of their upcoming event, the End of Summer Carnival on July 27th. This is an annual event to celebrate the kids with awards, games, and a water slide. Director Shawn Hart said, "They've worked hard, so we plan this event to celebrate them!"

How You Can Help

Right now, the Boys & Girls Club is located at 1055 Madison Street in Shelbyville. "Our sign and building is very small," Shawn said, "so we are hoping to buy an old school building in the next five years." Right now, they are only able to hold about 100 kids at a time, and they cannot provide meals without a working kitchen. The school would allow them to provide meals, have more kids involved in the program, and have a full gym to use! If you would like to donate to the Bedford County Club, please visit this website: campaigns/custom-donation/ donate/ Toward the bottom of the page where it says "Which company or program will you be submitting to?", simply enter "Shelbyville" or "Bedford County Club" so that your donation is allocated!

We are so happy to help the Boys & Girls Club of Bedford County, and we hope you will help them too!



25 Years of the Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima is 25 years old! The photo above shows the very first generation next to the latest generation, which debuts very soon: the 2019 Altima. This first generation was produced from 1993-1997. It replaced the Nissan Stanza in the US, which was known as the Bluebird in Japan. Nissan Altima The second generation (above) was manufactured between 1998-2001. This redesign offered a sportier apperance, increased horsepower, and 15-inch tires. The third generation of the Nissan Altima was made between 2002-2006. This all-new design was widely popular, and receives credit for reviving the Nissan brand in the US. Again, the horsepower increased with an award-winning engine upgrade. Nissan Altima The fourth generation was produced from 2007 to 2012. This was the first to use the Xtronic transmission system, which is now standard on several other Nissan models. Nissan Altima The fifth generation, made from 2013-2018, became the one of the most innovative & premium Altima in its history. Major developments included advanced technology features. It's in this span of time that this Altima remained the best selling nameplate for Nissan up until the redesigned Nissan Rogue crossover passed it in 2017. Finally comes the sixth & most current generation of the Nissan Altima (below). With updated styling, the best technology available, and two all-new engine upgrades, this generation is aimed at re-energizing the sedan segment of the market!

Bigger & Better: Trunk or Treat 2018

We loved Trunk or Treat 2018!

Easily our favorite day of the year, we here at Newton Nissan South love getting to see our community turn out for Trunk or Treat. It's also an important day for us, because it is a day that we don't promote ourselves. Instead, we promote our community. This year, the Cascade High School Band Boosters helped us decorate over 40 trunks that we filled with enough candy for all the afternoon's visitors! In return, we were able to donate some funds to help them continue to grow their program.   Additionally, the National Honor Society partnered up with our second community organization, the Humane Society of Shelbyville-Bedford County! They teamed up to also decorate several trunks to join in the fun. And, of course, our very own Newton Panda Bear made her annual appearance! We could not have asked for better weather for Trunk or Treat this year! The students & their cars showed up early and began setting up: decorating their cars, trucks, and SUVs into spooky entrances, fun characters, science labs, and music-filled pop culture references, such as The Wizard of Oz and Star Wars. We had a friendly competition over whose trunk was the best, and we brought in fun bouncy houses and, new for this year, a mechanical bull for the kids to enjoy! We had a much bigger turnout this year, and we were so proud and happy to host everyone and serve lots of pizza and candy for a few hours! One of the winners was an adorable little white car, simply decorated as...well watch this video to find out:

So, why do we do this?

Because we here believe that our customers are more important than our cars; our community is more valuable than our bottom line. And to show this, we simply want to be a part of each others' lives. And Trunk or Treat is one of those days that allows us to host a fun event, get to know our community, and give back.

Thank you for being a part of our community!

We hope to see you next year at Trunk or Treat 2019!
