Nissan is All About Keeping You Safe With Their Vehicles

I know y'all have been noticing I been doing a lot of auto reviews lately and attending auto-related events.  It's just that I've had a passion for cars for years now thanks to my dad being a regional manager in California for Avis and Enterprise when I was younger.


My dad introduced me to several auto brands when he would come home from work in different rental cars making me grow fond of a variety of vehicles.  My dad is no longer living, but when I review all these cars, it's like I can feel his spirit and presence all around me.

His passions were passed down to me, and hopefully, my daughters will love cars as much as I do to keep the tradition going.

I had to share this, so you know why I blog about different auto brands so much.  I hope you don't mind since cars seem to be dominated industry of males and Product Review Mom is moreso a blog for women with children.

Last week, Bloggin Mamas contacted me to join them for lunch to learn about safe driving of Nissan's lineup of cars, a critical topic.


I don't have much knowledge of the Nissan brand, so I don't have much of an opinion about them, however, Mr. M have a relatively new Nissan cargo van he uses for his business and hasn't had any issues with it.  So far, he only has done regular maintenance of oil changes, tire rotations, and soon will be getting a tune-up.  Even doing those things will keep you safe and running as well.

What I do see is that there are a lot of Nissan's on the road today, like Altima, Maxima, Pathfinder, and Armada's.  Nissan is known for having affordable vehicles, giving consumers a lot of bang for your buck.


I live about an hour away from where the Nissan event was held and was over 30 min late to the venue.  So embarrassing; Atlanta's unnecessary traffic was to blame and almost had me throw my arms up in the air, give up, and return home.  But no, since Nissan is a brand I would love to partner with and give you all my feedback about them, I arrived fashionably late.

Once I got to No Mas Cantina in Atlanta, where the event was held, I pretty much missed all the important discussions about safety with Nissan.  I noticed the topic was more geared towards Hispanic mom's with children, but information can be applied for any moms with young kids.

Nissan Now Have Rear Door Alert Technology


Nissan’s new Rear Door Alert technology  – Monitors the door switches (open/close). If it notices that the rear door was opened before a drive, but not afterward, it alerts the driver via the gauge cluster and an audible horn chirp. – Can be turned off temporarily or permanently – Available on the 2018 Pathfinder as standard equipment – Will be standard on all four-door Nissan nameplates within four years.

Nissan Will Alert You if Child Was Left in Back Seat


It's sad that a feature alert of letting someone know a child have been left in the back seat of a car is created.  Are we so distracted that we forget our own children is left behind?


People need to slow down physically, and mentally; that always rushing, putting too much on themselves is making peoples' life chaos not seeing and remember things clearly.


But, the way things are today, and with so many kids being left in hot cars, a feature like this is needed.  Also, the backseat alert will let you know if you left anything else in the car as well.

My fellow blog mommas and I got to do a test spin around the block in several of Nissan's lineup of vehicles with Armada being the one that caught my eye due to its size, being an SUV, and spacious.  Hopefully, I'll be able to test drive it for a week to give a more in-depth review about it.


Have you Ever Eaten at No Mas Cantina in Downtown Atlanta?

It was my first time visiting and dining at No Mas Cantina, and the Mexican catered cuisine we had for lunch was so delicious!  All the herbs and fresh spices taste like authentic Spanish foods.  Also, the vibrant restaurant decor is excitedly welcoming giving you a taste of Mexico in Atlanta.

Regular restaurant goers who were there for lunch had the place packed out for an early Tuesday afternoon.  It could be because Tuesday is known for Taco Tuesdays, maybe No Mas Cantina is the top choice for Mexican dining that guest must have it for lunch before returning to work, or perhaps both.

I need to come back with my family to check out their full menu, and also browse around their Artisan giftshop.  It's like significant experience in itself stepping inside of No Mas Cantina.
