2010 Nissan Frontier
By Casey Williams When I was a much younger man, my scoutmaster toted us brave little troopers to campsites and boating adventures in a Nissan pickup. It wasn’t called Frontier back then — didn’t need to be. There was only…

Best Date Car of 2009
Joe Tralongo – 2010 Infiniti G37 As my hubby and I just celebrated out 19th anniversary, this is always a tough one for me. I can’t even remember dating, let alone the most important requirement for impressing someone. I guess…
2010 Nissan Sedans – Nip/Tuck on Wheels
Nick Kurczewski went to Nashville on our behalf to check out the updates to the Nissan sedan lineup. He found some new technology, minor nips/tucks and some bad fake wood. We chatted about the updates and came to terms with the fact that Nissan is following the old adage of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.

Driving INSIDE the Box – 2009 Nissan Cube
I’ve had a 2009 Nissan cube Krom edition for the past few days but today is the day I put it to the test. I have errands galore that include shopping (which for the record I DETEST), bank, post office….you know, the things that we all have to do every weekend. I’m going to use Twitter to update you on my experiences living with the cube for the next few days. If you aren’t following me on Twitter, do so HERE.

Nissan EV – First Drive
I had the opportunity to drive a powertrain last week. Yes, I said a powertrain and not a vehicle. That cute little panda-like ride you see above is a beard for Nissan’s new electric vehicle (EV) and while it looks cute in its two-tone paint job, it is what lies beneath that is important.
Electric vehicles are not new for Nissan. In fact, they introduced their first electric car in 1998 and then offered a micro car called the Hypermini for limited lease in 2000. Nissan’s executives spoke to this fact a few times during the presentation – perhaps to overcome the doubt that Nissan is serious about launching a EV next year in limited markets and then globally in 2012.
Battle of the Boxes
I remember countless hours spent as a child playing in a box. Yes, a standard-issue cardboard box. If it was raining or too cold outside, my mother would pull out a box from the closet and the fun ensued. To add context to this story, our TV was B&W, there were only three channels and computers and video games were things of the distant future. So if there was nothing suitable on TV and Mother couldn’t send us outside to play (or lock us in the dog pen – true story), we had to entertain ourselves and, gasp(!), we used our imaginations.
