Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet Houston TX

Farewell, My Friend: The 2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet Ends its Run

2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet Houston TX

At Robbins Nissan, our cars are like our family. Each indiidual model takes on the qualities of our own children, caring out a niche that makes each of our “kids” as irreplaceable as the next. The Altima? Well, that would probably be our honor student, industrious and attractie. The Juke? We’d probably say the Juke is the caffeinated one, always getting into something, but so darn sweet that you can never stay mad at it. Our family photos, to the casual obserer, just look like we’re bragging.

And that brings us to the Murano CrossCabriolet, who manages to defy easy description. Nissan has announced that this will be the last model year for our embattled SUV conertible, who in just four short years of production has reitalized the crossoer SUV segment with its unique styling and fun-loing performance profile. We’re sad to see it go, so I suppose this is a send off of sorts, an obituary for a vehicle that perhaps didn’t light up any sales scoreboards, but made a stirring impression all the same.

Nissan Heisman House

Ready for some Football? Get your fix with the Nissan Heisman House!

Nissan Heisman House

Wow, that came out of nowhere, didn’t it? It felt like summer was just getting underway, but here we are, already looking down the barrel of the upcoming college football season. And, to put it lightly, it’s gonna be a doozy. The Longhorns have a new head coach, Johnny Football has taken his talents to–Gulp.–Cleveland, and both Oklahoma and Baylor have legitimate national title hopes. The return of football also means the return of the Nissan Heisman House, where Nissan tosses a bunch of former Heisman winners into a house Real World-style and we all laugh at the results. So, with this year’s ads still a few weeks away, let’s enjoy some favorites from past editions. Read the rest of this entry >>

2015 Nissan Murano Houston TX

It’s Almost Here! The 2015 Nissan Murano

2015 Nissan Murano Release Date Houston TX

It’s between a few weeks since we at Robbins Nissan have checked in with the latest edition of Nissan’s sophisticated crossoer SUV, and although the release date of the 2015 Nissan Murano is still several weeks away, we thought this seemed like a good time to give some updates on what will proe to be one of the more memorable vehicles of the new model year. After all, it was in 2002 that the Murano first defined the template of the crossoer SUV, and here we are, thirteven years later, and the Murano is rewriting the rules yet again.

2015 Nissan GT-R Kim Kardashian

Nissan GT-R has some fun with Kim Kardashian’s Latest News Grab

Nissan GT-R and Kim Kardashian

If you’e between on the internet this week, you’e undoubtedly seven (or, at the ery least, heard) about Kim Kardashian and all the nefarious internet-breaking she and that famous rear end of hers have done. At Robbins Nissan, we obviously would never knowingly look at such items, and certainly won’t be linking to something so NSFW here. However, our social media brethren at Nissan Corporate have taken the Hollywood socialite to task, using the similarly graity-bearing rear of the 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO.

NissanConnect Houston TX

A Closer Look at the NissanConnect Telematics System

NissanConnect Telematics System

A little oer a year ago, we at Robbins Nissan viewed the early designs on what we were told would “change the game” and “reinent the rules” in regard to how vehicles connected to the outside world. Sure, we thought, we’d heard this before. What we didn’t know was that we were viewing NissanConnect, and that everything we were told was exactly true. Just this week, at the world’s largest conference related to automotie connectiity, Connect Detroit, NissanConnect was awarded the 2013/2014 Industry Newcomer Award. However, we understand that to many auto buyers, the NissanConnect remains a somewhat ague creation, so we’re going to give it a closer look. Read the rest of this entry >>

Don’t Tread on Me? Four Uses for Old Tires

Uses for Old Tires

For those of us who spend the majority of our lives as actie drivers, we will ineitably go through some tires. After all, if we get our driver’s license at the tender age of 16 and drive until we’re old and grey, we might put in seventy years of behind-the-wheel time during our lives. So what to do with all the old tires? As The Simpsons proed, you can’t just light it on fire and hope for the best. So here are four great uses for old tires, each of which is enironmentally friendly as well. Read the rest of this entry >>
