What’s the difference between Nissan Eco, Normal, and Sport driving modes?

By Product Expert | Posted in FAQs, Nissan Sentra on Tuesday, May 7th, 2024 at 6:41 PM
Difference between Nissan driving modes

When you drive a Nissan, you might notice you have the opportunity to experience different driving modes. If, like many of us, you’re accustomed to a vehicle that has one driving mode, you might be confused about what the difference is between the Eco, Normal, and Sport driving modes in your vehicle. For Nissan owners who have been keeping it on the standard “Normal” mode the whole time you’ve owned the vehicle, you might want to consider your other Nissan driving modes.

Why use different driving modes?

Traditionally, you get just one driving mode in automatic or CVT-equipped vehicles. Put your key in the ignition or push start and you’re off. But what if you could change your driving mode? This is the thought behind the Eco, Normal, and Sport driving mode selection.

So what do they do? 

Your Normal driving mode is just that. The everyday mode you might use that feels well-paced and offers average fuel economy ratings. Think of it as the mode you’re used to when you don’t have the options of other modes.

Eco mode is just as it sounds. It’s the most economical mode and is best saved for longer trips. It’s a bit like putting a leash on power, as it limits acceleration, so it isn’t ideal for trips around town when you have a lot of stop-and-go traffic situations.  Eco mode is best used when you’re spending a long time on the highway. Whether you’re going on a road trip, have a long commute, or are simply driving far to visit friends and family. If you’d be inclined to use cruise control, you might as well switch on Eco mode to save some fuel while you’re at it.

Finally, there’s Sport mode, which you might consider the opposite of Eco mode. Instead of throttling you back to save fuel, you’re given more power to hold a higher RPM before automatically shifting into the next gear. This makes it more fun to drive. It also means you won’t be as efficient, so it’s not necessarily a mode to try all the time. It also only works at speeds above 20 mph, so it’s another mode you might save for when you know you’ll be going faster.

Nissan Dashboard Warning Lights

If you ever feel like you’re playing a game of Pictionary with your car, trying to decipher what the foreign symbol that suddenly appeared on the dashboard means, you’re not alone. It’s common for drivers to see a symbol light up and be unsure of what exactly their Nissan car is trying to tell them.

Rather than guessing what the warning light on your Nissan car’s dashboard means, ignoring it, or assuming the worst, don’t bother rifling through your Owner’s Manual, because Glendale Nissan has all of the information right here.

How to Get Your Nissan Ready for Winter with This Comprehensive Checklist

By Product Expert | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, December 21st, 2023 at 7:52 PM
nissan maintenance

The heavy Illinois winters can create less-than-ideal driving conditions for you and your Nissan. Visiting the Glendale Nissan Service Center helps drivers prepare their new Pathfinder, Rogue, Sentra, and more for the roads ahead.

Even the rugged lineup of Nissan trucks and SUVs can benefit from seasonal winter services at the hands of our experienced technicians.

Nissan Service Checklist

It’s never a bad time to bring your Nissan in for an inspection or tune-up but it’s especially important to schedule service during the colder months. Our team offers the following maintenance checklist:

Brake Inspections: Worn brakes are particularly dangerous on wet or icy roads. Some indicators that brakes need replacement include squealing sounds, vibrations, and pulling to the side while applying the brakes. We offer thorough inspections and full service.

Replace Tires: The summer heat can expedite wear and tear on tires while winter weather creates slick roads. Extreme temperature drops also cause tires to lose pressure. By inspecting, rotating, and replacing tires regularly drivers can maintain vehicle control and quality performance.

Test the Battery: Icy Illinois temperatures put additional strain on your Nissan’s battery. The cold can also potentially freeze batteries that aren’t fully charged. Our skilled team can test and replace batteries as needed.

Replace Windshield Wipers: Being caught in a winter storm without windshield wipers can become a nightmare. Replacing wipers is a simple and necessary winter service.

Test the Heating System: Some signs of a faulty heating unit include: reduced airflow, odd smells, and delayed heating. We help drivers maintain comfortable vehicle interiors.

We offer all this and more when you visit our service center at Glendale Nissan. Whether you need Nissan parts for your Rogue or car accessories for your Sentra, our technicians are always happy to help.

For drivers going on serious winter adventures throughout the Midwest, we recommend packing an emergency winter car kit.

What to Pack in an Emergency Winter Car Kit

Planning ahead with an emergency winter safety kit can be life-saving during the event of an accident or breakdown. A solid winter kit should include:

  • First Aid
  • Extra Warm Clothing
  • Flashlights
  • Jumper Cables
  • Multi-tool
  • Bottled Water
