2014 Nissan Versa Sedan

Nissan is the latest automaker to offer owners affected by the U.S. government shutdown a grade period on vehicle payments.

Qualified Nissan and Infiniti owners who are affected by the shutdown will be allowed to delay their car payments up to three months without suffering penalties.

“Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. is sympathetic to any of our customers who find themselves in difficult financial circumstances-many times outside of their control-and we want to provide assistance to help them through those times of uncertainty,” said Mark Kaczynski, president, NMAC. “Our customers’ needs are the No. 1 priority at Nissan, which is why we have this program available on an ongoing basis.”

Earlier this week, Hyundai announced that it would offer a 90-day extension to its customers. An estimated 800,000 workers are being affected by the closure.

    NISSAN JUST DESTROYED THEIR IMAGE PERMANENTLY!!!
    MAJORITY OF AMERICANS RIGHT NOW ARE WONDERING WHY NISSAN DOESN’T HELP THE THOUSANDS OF PRIVATE SECTOR NISSAN OWNERS WHO WILL BE CONVERTED TO PART-TIME AS A RESULT OF THE ORIGINAL CAUSE OF THIS SHUTDOWN? THEY WON’T BE RETURNING TO NORMAL ONCE THIS ENDS. THEY CAN’T EVEN COLLECT FURLOUGH UNEMPLOYMENT LIKE THOSE POOR GOVERNMENT WORKERS THAT WE GOTTA FEEL SORRY FOR!!

    AND LET’S FORGET ALL THOSE 9 MILLION AMERICANS WHO LOST THEIR JOBS IN THE LAST 5 YEARS. YA THINK SOME OF THEM HAVE 60 MONTH NISSAN LOANS? HOW COME NISSAN DOESN’T PUBLICIZE ANY PAYMENT DEFERRALS FOR THEM??? ARE THEY LESS IMPORTANT BECAUSE THEY AREN’T GOVERNMENT WORKERS?

    MAKES ME SICK!

    ANYONE THINK THEY ARE DOING THIS OUT OF THE GOODNESS OF THEIR HEARTS?
