2016 Altima’s Changes Challenge Camry

The first eight months of 2015 were fantastic for the Altima, with over 238,200 units sold. That’s a 1.3% increase over the first eight months of 2014. The redesigned 2016 Nissan Altima will roll out to the public come mid-November and the changes aren’t anything to scoff at.

The newest Altima is a real rival for its main competitor and front runner, the Toyota Camry. Even with the growing popularity of SUVs and crossovers, sedans are still one of the bestselling segments in America.

In an effort to take the lead, Nissan has pulled out all the stops, including adding advanced safety features, a luxurious interior, and much more.

Topping out the list of advanced safety features are forward emergency braking, forward collision warning, and radar-based blind spot warning. These safety features were previously only available on the Infiniti brand.

On the inside, the 2016 Altima’s changes include freshly designed seats, a new center stack, and higher quality materials.

Better yet, Nissan stated that the Altima will also come with an SR sport package. That model will bring cosmetic changes like alloy rims and a new grille, as well as mechanical changes like a 258% stiffer rear stabilizer.

We here at Cronic Nissan can’t want to see who prevails in the midsize segment!

How to Change a Flat Tire

Change a Flat Tire

Getting a flat tire on a long road trip isn’t ideal, but it doesn’t have to ruin your trip. You can get back on the road before roadside assistance even arrives with a simple do-it-yourself maintenance. All you need is your owner’s manual, a spare tire, a jack, and a wrench. We here at Cronic Nissan have the know-how to easily change a flat tire!

  • Pull off to the side of the road. Aim for a flat surface on a straight road. Curves and hills can be dangerous.
  • Remove your hubcap and loosen each lug nut. Don’t remove them entirely and keep the car on the ground. You may need some leverage.
  • Jack up the car. Consult your owner’s manual to see where to place the jack on your particular vehicle.
  • Once your car is raised, remove the lug nuts and store them somewhere you won’t lose them.
  • Remove the flat tire by pulling out and away from the car.
  • Line the spare tire up with the lug nut posts then push the tire in towards the car.
  • Replace the bolts.
  • Lower the car back to the ground and tighten the lug nuts.
  • Replace the hubcap and put away your tools.
  • Remember to pick up a new spare tire!
