The 2009 Murano Has Landed At Nissan Of Bergenfield!

One of the most awaited new models of the year (and next year) is here… the all-new 2009 Nissan Murano! Nissan Of Bergenfield is ecstatic to bring you the details of this latest iteration of the king of crossover SUVs.

We’ve got plenty of news on the redesign, but one of the most important things to remember as you read the rest of this article is that with all the upgrades, the new 2009 Murano actually starts $1,500 lower than its predecessor! That’s right, in an aggressive move by Nissan, the Murano can now be had starting at around $26,330.

Now to the key features. Nissan has massaged its legendary VQ 6-cylinder engine (a member of Ward’s 10 Best Engine list for 13 years in a row) to 265 horsepower, and trust us, it feels even better than it sounds. You’ll also love the new dual-panel moonroof over your head, as well as the aesthetic upgrades like available 20″ wheels, quad-projection HID headlights and LED taillights.

You’ve also got some treats in store when you open up the Murano. The new interior is gorgeous, and makes the other vehicles in the Murano’s class look outdated. Mood lighting at night inside the cabin is a wonderful luxury, and the redesigned dash and steering wheel controls make multi-tasking easier than ever. Of course, you can pile on the tech treats all day long, with BlueTooth®, Navigation, DVD, and rearview camera.

It’s an amazing package put together by Nissan, and available in many colors and trims now at Nissan Of Bergenfield. Take a ride in this time machine and see how great 2009 is looking.

The Hyundai Genesis Is Born!

With buyers still reeling over the Hyundai Veracruz beating the Lexus RX350 in a head-to-head comparison, Hyundai has rolled out yet another gem that promises to wow both country club members and accountants alike: the $30,000 2009 Genesis.

Hyundai Genesis 5

Crafted to meet or exceed the standards of much pricier vehicles from Mercedes-Benz and Lexus, the Hyundai Genesis is the premier luxury sedan for drivers who care more about their car impressing themselves than impressing others. And with an optional 368 horsepower on tap, you’ll be getting from A to B faster than a concierge can say “your reservations are ready”.

Hyundai also took great steps to give this car an appeal to younger buyers, a demographic that those German carmakers don’t seem to believe is worth catering to. So what is it about the Genesis that would interest a successful 30-something? How about a 500-watt sound system with 17 speakers, Navigation and satellite radio with real-time traffic updates, heated/cooled seats, adaptive headlights, push-button start, parking sonar assist and rear power sunshade. Just think of the Genesis as a goodie bag for grown-ups.

Contact Hyundai Of Paramus to find out when the Genesis will roll into our showroom!

What’s your trade-in worth? You tell us!

One of the inevitable pains of car buying is trying to figure out how much you should get for your current vehicle as you trade it in. Obviously, you want the most for your car, whereas dealers want to pay as little as possible for it. There are plenty of factors that come into play, such as a consumer’s perception of sentimental value as actual value, or the fact that some cars just aren’t appealing to dealers as something they’d like to buy.

Let’s find something we can both agree on, yes? We’ve signed on with Black Book Online – the industry standard in wholesale and vehicle retail values – to provide our customers with an trusted third-party trade appraisal tool which provides estimates that dealers know will be accurate, as long as the customer submits accurate information.

So try our Black Book Trade Appraisal tool, and if your information is accurate, there should be no surprises when you come down to our dealership with your trade-in vehicle! The tool is also available on several areas of our Nissan Of Bergenfield web site.

Tax Benefits for Businesses: IRS Section 179

If you’re a business owner, you’re probably aware that you can write off the depreciation of your business vehicle as an expense. But did you know that IRS Section 179 Expense Allowance can often qualify you for a deduction on the actual cost of new vehicles over 6,000 pounds (GVWR)?

The IRS amendment limits expense to $25,000 for eligible vehicles. For our dealer group, this includes vehicles such as the Dodge Ram, Dodge Dakota, Dodge Sprinter line, multiple Jeep products, Nissan Armada, Nissan Pathfinder, and Nissan Titan, among other models. Vehicles coming in at under 6,000 pounds GVWR don’t qualify for Section 179, limiting the first year deduction for depreciation to $3,060.

Consult your financial advisor if you think your business could benefit from Section 179, and then contact the JelMAC store of your choice to take advantage of these opportunities!
