Exclusive Nissan Deal ‘The other day a six-and-a-half or eighttonne truck got bogged at a job and the Navara pulled the truck out. [The truck] dropped off a load of timber and sunk its wheels in – all it needed was just a little pull and out it came. That amazed me.’ Graeme and Kerrie’sMaxima is used mainly for running around the city, but they’ve also been on some country runs and the fuel economy is great. ‘The Maxima is a beautiful ride. It is extremely economical and, for the price of the vehicle and what it comes with, it is very good value for money,’ says Graeme. ‘It’s used as a ute with tools in the back, but with the comfort of a car’ The Howards couldn’t be happier with their Nissans. ‘They’re great value for money,’Graeme says. ‘They come with a lot more as standard. I wouldn’t hesitate doing the same sort of deal again.’He’s already called for a price on another Navara. Queenslander Laura Cooper is thrilled with her new Nissan. She was looking for something ‘a bit sturdier than a small car’ but still with small car features. She chose the Tiida.And with her covering more than 120km each day to and from work, reliability and fuel economy were extremely important. The Tiida hatch suits her needs perfectly. ‘My partner is actually a mechanic and he’s always raved about Nissans, so that is why I went for a Nissan in the first instance,’ she says.‘He’s driven quite a lot of small cars and says the actual power behind the size of the [Tiida’s] engine is quite amazing.’ Nissan was already running a special at the time Laura purchased the Tiida, and she received the HIA deal on top of that for additional savings. ‘Nissan staff were really friendly to deal with and they did quite a few follow-up calls,’ she recalls. Laura loves the internal space of the Tiida.And with all the kilometres she does, it has definitely had a positive impact on her hip-pocket. ‘It’s great, I fill up once a week and it lasts me forever. ‘It’s great; I love it. I couldn’t say anything bad about it whatsoever.’ If you want to mix your business with a great driving experience, and save money at the same time, contact your local Nissan dealer.
