Welcome To The World Of NISSAN

The inside pages of this manual contain a minimum of 50% recycled fibers, including 10% post-consumer fibers.

Your new Nissan is the result of our dedication to produce the finest in safe, reliable and economi- cal transportation. Your vehicle is the product of a successful worldwide company that manufac- tures cars and trucks in over 20 countries and distributes them in 150 nations. Nissan vehicles are designed and manufactured by Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. which was founded in Tokyo, Japan in 1933, and Nissan affiliates worldwide, collectively growing to become the fourth largest automaker in the world. In addition to cars and trucks, Nissan also makes textile machinery, forklift trucks, marine engines, boats and other products. Nissan has made a substantial and growing investment in North America, starting with the opening of Nissan Motor Corporation U.S.A. in 1960, continuing with the production of some cars and trucks at one of the world’s most

modern manufacturing facilities in Smyrna, Ten- nessee, vehicle styling at Nissan Design Interna- tional in San Diego, California, and engineering at Nissan Research and Development in Farm- ington Hills, Michigan. Nissan Motor Corporation U.S.A. and its dealers employ about 50,000 Americans. Nissan is also a substantial contributor to the Canadian economy. Nissan Canada Inc. and its 200 dealers and suppliers employ approximately 4,000 people. These include company employ- ees and the staffs of Nissan dealers all across Canada. In addition, many Canadians work for companies that supply Nissan and Nissan deal- ers with materials and services ranging from the operation of port facilities and transportation ser- vices, lubricants, parts and accessories.

Nissan pioneered the use of electronics and computers in automobiles, and has led the indus- try in improving both performance and fuel effi- ciency through new engine designs and the use of synthetic materials to reduce vehicle weight. The company has also developed ways to build quality into its vehicles at each stage of the production process, both through extensive use of automation and — most importantly — through an awareness that people are the cen- tral element in quality control.

From the time the parts arrived from our suppli- ers until you took delivery of your new Nissan, dozens of checks were made to ensure that only the best job was being done in producing and delivering your vehicle. Nissan also takes great care to ensure that when you take your Nissan to your dealer for maintenance, the service techni- cian will perform his work according to the quality standards that have been established by the factory.

Safety has also been built into your Nissan. As you know, seat belts are an integral part of the safety systems that will help protect you and your passengers in the event of a sudden stop or an accident. We urge you to use the belts every time you drive the vehicle.

The Nissan story of growth and achievement reflects our major goal: to provide you, our customer, with a vehicle that is built with quality and craftsmanship — a product that we can be proud to build and you can be proud to own.

MANUAL DOOR LOCK To lock the front doors or sliding door from the outside, turn the key toward the front of the vehicle. To unlock, turn it toward the rear.

APD0002


APD0142


Record the key number on the key number plate and keep it in a safe place (such as your wallet), NOT IN THE CAR. A key number plate is supplied with your key. Keep the plate in a safe place. NISSAN does not record key numbers so it is very important to keep track of your key number plate. A key number is necessary only when you have lost all vehicle keys and do not have one to duplicate from. If you still have a key, this key can be duplicated by your NISSAN dealer or locksmith shop. Two keys are supplied with your vehicle — one has a plastic head and one is all metal. Both keys perform the same functions.

CAUTION

c Always have the doors locked while driving. Along with the use of seat belts, this provides greater safety in the event of an accident by helping to prevent persons from being thrown from the vehicle. This also helps keep children and others from unintentionally opening the doors, and will help keep out intruders.

c Before opening any door, always look for and avoid oncoming traffic. c Always use the door handle to open or close the sliding door. Do not attempt to open or close the door by merely placing your hand on the door edge or door slide roller, as this may cause injury.

c When opening the sliding door on a slope, ensure that it is fully open and that it does not close by itself.

CHILD SAFETY SLIDING DOOR LOCK Child safety locking helps prevent doors from being opened accidentally, especially when small children are in the vehicle. When the lever is in the lock position, the sliding door can be opened only from the outside.

FUEL FILLER LID AND CAP

SEATS/FLOOR MATS

CAUTION

c Gasoline is extremely flammable and highly explosive under certain con- ditions. Always stop the engine and do not smoke or allow open flames or sparks near the vehicle when refueling.

c Fuel may be under pressure. Turn the cap one-half turn, and wait for any ‘‘hissing’’ sound to stop to pre- vent fuel from spraying out and pos- sible personal injury. Then remove the cap.

c Use only a genuine NISSAN fuel filler cap as a replacement. It has a built-in safety valve needed for proper op- eration of the fuel system and emis- sion control system. An incorrect cap can result in a serious malfunc- tion and possible injury.

SEATING ARRANGEMENTS Many different arrangements for passenger seating or cargo hauling are available as you will see in the following illustrations. The second row seats may be removed and the third row seat may be moved forward to the second row seating position. The second and third row seats have an optional fold- down table-top feature. This offers a variety of uses for the vehicle when moving or stopped. The illustrations shown reflect the different seating positions available. Before you begin to arrange the seats in your vehicle, read all of the cautions and warnings in this chapter, including the following section on the removable floor mats. Also observe any labels that are in the vehicle.
