Tweaking The 2008 Nissan Altima Coupe

Every day we see a new customer falling in love with the 2008 Altima Coupe, and that’s no surprise. But interestingly enough, the one gripe that we’ve heard repeated is that for such a slick and classy-looking sports car, the wheel & tire combination on the base models is a little underwhelming.

Well, here at Nissan Of Bergenfield we’ve found that listening to the customers usually translates to more sales (sounds obvious, right?), which is why we took it upon ourselves to replace the stock Nissan wheel/tire setup with an 18″ chrome aftermarket wheel that looks amazing on this car.

We’ve had a ton of customers compliment the wheels, and several have stated, “this is the wheel that should be on this car”. It really does complete the sleek and powerful look of the Altima Coupe, and it’s worth seeing in person.

Stop by this weekend to take a look… we’re open until midnight tonight!

The awesome Dodge Demon convertible concept that debuted at the Geneva Auto Show in March is looking to be right on track for production.

In a recent interview, Trevor Creed (Chief Of Design for the Chrysler Group) gave a very positive outlook for the Demon’s likelihood of production. The Viper-esque convertible concept is powered by a 172hp 4-cylinder, and there has been talk of a 300hp SRT4 version.

Rare Mercedes-Benz SL500 For Sale!

As this car is a little off the beaten path of the vehicles we sell, we’re looking for help from you, our adoring readers: we will cut a $250 check to anyone who buys or refers us to the buyer of this rare Benz!

Diamond Silver Metallic Exterior
Berry Red/Charcoal Interior
This 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL500 is one of the rarest color combinations around: a Diamond Silver Metallic exterior (a silver that looks sky blue in certain conditions) with a Berry Red/Charcoal interior. The owner had to wait for this combination to be built from the factory… this thing turns heads like nothing else on the road!

Babied for its entire life of only 25,000 miles, this SL is in excellent condition and really must be seen to appreciate the color combo. Asking price has been reduced to $53,997… we may entertain other reasonable offers in the future but the $250 referral check is only good if the car is purchased at asking price.

Submit a lead on our web site here, or contact the Internet Director personally to find out more or arrange a test drive!

Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep Roll Out New Web Sites

For those of you who haven’t been to Dodge.com, Chrysler.com, or Jeep.com lately, they’ve redone the web sites and now have more eye candy and in-depth information than ever.

The old sites were admittedly getting a bit stale, so it’s good to see that the Chrysler group put some thought into the new sites rather than just refreshing the design. Some of the new points of interest include:

  • More Immediate Access To Dealer Locators And Inventory
  • “Click To Call” Option To Speak With A Representative
  • More Vehicle Photos And Downloadable Multimedia
  • Better Information On Features And Specifications
  • Quick Links To New Information And Limited Time Offers

The sites are definitely more enjoyable to surf now (unless you’re on a Mac, in which case there are still some bugs), and they’re packed with good information on all the Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep products and services. Take a minute to browse the new sites!

Update: The SRT Performance web site has also been updated with the new design… which is a beautiful thing because the previous site was quite unimpressive. At any rate, feast your eyes on the Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep performance models here:
