Standard safety features include the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) with dual stage supplemental front air bags, front seat side-impact supplemental air bags, door-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags, front seat Active Head Restraints, and Dual Pop-up Roll Bars for rear passengers.

Two new colors are offered: Midnight Garnet and Gun Metallic, along with carryover colors Super Black and Pearl White. The standard 20-inch split 5-spoke titanium finish aluminum-alloy wheels have also been redesigned.

Whether you select the standard Murano or the convertible Cross Cabriolet, you will love the Nissan Murano! It#8217;s a great combination of a crossover and convertible, with room for four adults. It#8217;s configured so that you can have the top down and still carry on a conversation!

Seven Essential Tools For DIY Car Care

Published: November 8, 2013

In this post, we#8217;ll share seven essential things you#8217;ll need in your DIY toolkit. Chances are pretty good that if you#8217;re a DIY-er, you already have all of these items. For the rest of us who and not DIY inclined, these items are a good place to start if you want to tackle car maintenance on your own.

1. Your Owner#8217;s Manual. If you#8217;re a serious DIY-er, you need the manuals from Haynes. The owner#8217;s manual that came with your car is full of good information about the vehicle.

You#8217;ll want to look it over before you begin a repair.

2. A jack. Most exterior repairs will require you to get underneath the car, which means you#8217;ll need a jack. It#8217;s a good idea to purchase a stable jack that will keep your car raised for a longer period of time.

The jack that came with your car is most likely for emergencies only.

Remember to jack your car on an even surface, chock the wheels, and read your owner#8217;s manual for the best locations to place the jack on your car.

3. Socket Wrench. Your wheels are attached to the car with lug nuts, and they are impossible to remove without a socket wrench. The wrench that came with your car is best reserved for emergencies only, because not ideal except under emergency conditions.

Socket wrenches are smaller, allow for ratcheting, and perhaps their best feature is that you may need them for other projects around the house. Consider buying multiple sizes of wrenches.

4. Breaker bar. This will loosen lug nuts that have been tightened by impact wrenches used at the mechanic#8217;s garage.

5. Screwdrivers. Screwdrivers are perhaps the most useful component in a toolbox. Get a set of philips and flathead screwdrivers in a variety of different sizes.

6. WD-40. For those items that seem impossible to unstick, or unscrew, you’ll be happy to have some WD-40 on hand. Spray liberally to lubricate tight bolts and other parts that haven#8217;t been moved in awhile.

7. Lighting. Balancing a light in one hand while dealing with tools in the other can be more difficult than it sounds. Buy a head light or a small electric lantern to take with you when you get under the car.

DIY mechanics looking for a more permanent solution will also want a strong overhead light.

If you#8217;re hesitant to undertake your car#8217;s routine maintenance, bring your Matteson Nissan Murano to Hawkinson Nissan#8217;s Service Center!

Is Your Chicago Nissan Murano Ready to take on Winter?

Published: October 28, 2013

Is your Chicago Nissan Murano ready for winter driving? In this post, we#8217;ll share some tips to make sure your car is ready to take on the cold Chicago winters!

1. Check your tires for tread wear and if they#8217;re at the correct tire pressure. Many Nissan cars have tire pressure systems that tell you when the tire pressure is low. For the rest of us, checking the tire pressure is important, especially as we head into winter.

In areas with heavy winter weather, installing snow tires on all four wheels will provide the best winter traction. All-season tires work well in light-to -moderate snow conditions provided they have adequate tread depth. Replace any tire that has less than 3/32-inches of tread.

Uneven tire wear can indicate alignment, wheel balance or suspension problems that must be addressed to prevent further tire damage.

Check tire inflation pressure on all four tires and the spare more frequently in fall and winter. As the average temperature drops, so will tire pressures – typically by one PSI for every 10 degrees Fahrenheit.

Proper tire pressure levels can be found in the owner’s manual or on a sticker typically located on the driver’s side door jamb.

2. Check your battery. Have the battery and charging system tested by a trained technician. A fully charged battery in good condition is required to start an engine in cold weather.

3. Check the coolant system and fluid levels. Check the coolant level in the overflow tank when the engine is cold. If the level is low, add a 50/50 solution of coolant and water to maintain the necessary antifreeze capability.

Test the antifreeze protection level annually with an inexpensive tester available at any auto parts store.

4. Check your oil. It#8217;s time for an oil change if your oil is pitch black. It#8217;s never a good idea to wait until the oil is black before changing it.

The oil collects particles, which could eventually wear down the parts of your engine. This is perhaps the most important car care aspect. Check your owner#8217;s manual for recommended service intervals.
