Nissan Car Reviews View All Reviews

The Nissan name was first used in 1933, but the company's history goes back much further. Originally known as Kwaishinsha Motorcar Works, the company produced its first automobile, the DAT, in 1914. DAT later became Datsun (son of DAT) in 1931 and Datsuns went on to become the first mass-produced vehicles in Japan. Americans got their first look at the Datsun in 1958 - the 1200 Sedan. The Datsun 240Z was released as a 1970 model and it became the best selling sports car in the world, selling 500,000 units in less than 10 years.

2014 Nissan Rogue Review

Nissan’s Rogue gets a much-needed shot of refinement and style for 2014. Is it enough to make the crossover a contender?
2014 Nissan Rogue Review

2014 Nissan Rogue Review

Believe it or not the Rogue compact crossover is Nissan’s second-best selling nameplate in the U.S. behind the ever-popular Altima midsize sedan. The company just redesigned this family utility for the 2014 model year, but did they do enough to keep it competitive or could it lose silver-medal status?

Nissan SUV Reviews

2009 Nissan Murano

2009 Nissan Murano

Is a redesign for 2009 enough to help keep Nissan’s futuristic Murano SUV ahead of the pack or has a lack of other improvements let it slip from its pedestal?
2008 Nissan Rogue SL AWD Review

2008 Nissan Rogue SL AWD Review

It took a few days to grow on me, but after driving a fully-loaded 2008 Nissan Rogue SL AWD for a full week, this small utility vehicle has proved itself worthy. Looking strikingly similar to the Murano, the smaller, lighter, more economical Rogue comes in FWD or AWD versions in familiar S and SL nomenclatures.

2011 Nissan Quest LE Review

2011 Nissan Quest LE Review

The Quest might not be the innovation leader in the minivan segment, but that’s not to say it doesn’t have some excellent features. And in top-level LE trim it’s arguably it the most attractive for those who need family utility, but want a luxurious package.
