Why wait any longer to come in and experience the new definition of "truck"? Bondy's Nissan in Dothan Alabama is ready for you to come and take a no obligation test drive to see if you can find any reason this truck isn't for you.

Bluetooth hands-free phone, XM satellite radio with 4.3" color display, USB connection and more for the truck guy or girl who wants a tough yet "plugged in" feel for their vehicle.

NEW YORK - Take a look at how Nissan's Smart Rearview Mirror changes what you see.
April 12th, 2014
NEW YORK – Today marks the U.S. debut of Nissan's Smart Rearview Mirror, the world's first LCD monitor that helps provide clear rearward visibility unimpeded by traditional obstacles such as cargo, tall passengers, inclement weather or the design of a vehicle. Installed in an all-new 2014 Rogue at Nissan's stand at the upcoming New York International Auto Show, the Smart Rearview Mirror allows the driver to switch between the LCD monitor and the traditional rearview mirror, depending on the driver's preference.
The Smart Rearview Mirror is housed within the structure of the traditional rearview mirror, with a built-in LCD monitor that can be activated in place of the conventional mirror. A high-resolution camera mounted on the rear of the vehicle provides the driver with a clear, unobstructed view of the rear flanks, circumventing traditional rearview obstructions such as the vehicle's C-pillars and allowing the driver to feel more confident when maneuvering in a variety of traffic conditions. The camera projects a clear image – a wider and clearer view than a standard mirror - onto the monitor for a better view, as well as a more comfortable driving experience.

TOKYO – Three years ago, Anyo-in Temple’s Chief Priest Wasei Hirai was one of the first people to take home a Nissan LEAF electric car. Earlier this month, he sat down with the Global Media Center to reflect on EV ownership as global sales reach 100,000, with a new customer halfway across the world in the UK.
Hirai, who has driven his LEAF 12,000 kilometers, says the car fits perfectly with his ancient temple’s philosophy of innovation and its messages about the environment and way of life.
He uses the vehicle for errands and local trips, and enjoys the LEAF’s quiet interior while listening to music as he drives, and its smooth, responsive steering.
Hirai believes we should live in a way in which we create the energy that we use. Living on the temple grounds, he says he will soon use solar power to supply his vehicle’s power.
“The day will come that whenever people think of a car, it will be an electric car,” he says.
