Anthony, New Mexico, United States

Up for auction is my 300zx Twin Turbo. Car is in great condition mechanically, needs a little bit of cosmetic work. 

Car has had the following work done (fully documented with receipts): 

- Brake fluid flush
- AC system repair (had custom compressor fan installed at AAA mechanic Aguirre Auto as no one manufactures the OEM units)

- Replaced Battery (car had been sitting)
- Performed throttle body coolant bypass (Intake manifold cleaned, new intake manifold gasket)
- Replaced passenger side valve cover gasket
- Fuel filter replaced
- Fuel system cleaned
- Diagnosed check engine light to be due to rich condition (likely due to either bad o2 sensors, fuel delivery or aftermarket exhaust)

2012 (previous owner): 
- Replaced Battery
Work done at Jack Key Nissan (Las Cruces, NM): 
- Replaced Alternator
- Replaced all six injectors with new gaskets
- Replaced EGR gaskets
- Misc. Vacuum tubes replaced
- Knock sensor replaced
- EGR sensor replaced
- Timing Belt replaced
- Tension belt replaced
- Water pump replaced
- Thermostat replaced
- Misc. Coolant hoses replaced

2008 (previous owner): 
Replaced block with JDM import, swap done by AAA mechanic (Aguirre Auto Las Cruces NM) with following items replaced on JDM block:
- Timing Belt
- Rear Main Seal
- Front Crank Seal
- Injector Seals
- Water Pump
- Spark Plugs
- Exhaust Manifold Gasket Set
- Valve Cover Gasket Set

- Injector (1)
- Injector Seal Kit (1)
- New Battery

2007 (previous owner): 
- New radiator

2006 (previous owner): 
- Replaced head light switch & fixed fuse block

For the bad: 
- Car has been sitting for several months. Starts up right away, but idles a bit rough until warm. Driven the car on 100+ mile daily commutes to work here and there, but the car REALLY needs to be driven consistently to get her back on her feet. 
- Car has a HICAS leak (not surprising if you've owned one before)
- Check Engine Light is on (read description).   
- Needs some minor bodywork (see pics).
- Could use shocks/springs. 
- Could use tires. 

Car has been kept as close to OEM as possible. The only exceptions are the aftermarket stereo (nothing fancy; in fact the OEM radio is probably better at this point) and the intake system (previous owner installed an intake kit). 

Price reflects the need for some tune-up work, and potential body work. KBB rough private party is ~$5,900.  Priced $5,500 as I need her gone. 

Any questions, drop me a line.

2015 Nissan Murano gets edgier, lighter for NY

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 10:05:00 EST

Nissan's Murano stands as one of the originators of the crossover movement - it was perhaps the first such vehicle to throw out the idea that a CUV had to look like a boxy, cladded-up sport utility vehicle in order to be successful. Now poised to enter its third generation, the midsize Nissan is not only getting a new look and a host of new technologies, it's getting a new home: Canton, MS.
With dramatic new styling presaged by the Resonance Concept at last year's Detroit Auto Show, the new Murano debuting at this week's New York Auto Show includes a toned-down "V-Motion" nose, and the Japanese automaker's trademark boomerang-shaped light fixtures. Aside from the chunky chrome U-shaped grille element up front, the new Murano's most striking design detail is its cantilevered roof with funky "disconnected" D-pillars, a floating look reinforced by a greenhouse edged in brightwork. Overall, it's a much more bold and expressive piece of design than Nissan's recent second-generation Rogue, fitting, as the Murano has always been on the daring end of CUV design.
Boasting a 0.31 coefficient of drag and a ton of sheetmetal surface development, the Murano's new form is available with LED headlamps and features active grille shutters for improved aerodynamics. The company claims visibility has been improved as well - and not just because of its brilliant available Around View Monitor camera system - Nissan says it has "optimized the angles and thickness of the bottom of the A-pillar," along with fiddling with the size and location of the side mirrors.

2014 Nissan Rogue earns IIHS Top Safety Pick+ [w/videos]

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 16:29:00 EST

The 2014 Nissan Rogue has scored a Top Safety Pick+ award following positive crash test results by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The new crossover scored good results (the highest rating) in the group's five crashworthiness checks and a basic rating for front crash prevention.
The IIHS found that the Rogue also performed well in its small overlap front test with a low risk of injuries, and the driver's space maintained its structure well. It was an improvement over the previous generation, which received a marginal rating in that evaluation. The Rogue's optional forward collision warning system was enough for a basic rating in avoiding accidents.
To qualify as a Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must earn good ratings in the the moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint evaluations, plus a good or acceptable result in the small overlap front test. To receive the additional Plus rating in 2014, it must also have a basic, advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention. The IIHS scores vehicles as good, acceptable, marginal or poor, and avoidance systems are scored basic, advanced or superior, depending on the type of system and its performance. Scroll down to watch the videos of the small and moderate overlap crash tests and read the full IIHS statement.

Nissan teases new pickup again, this time with video

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 13:29:00 EST

It was just yesterday that we were presented with our first teaser image of Nissan's new midsize pickup, ahead of its June 11 debut. Today, we have video of what is most likely the next-generation Frontier.
It does reveal a skosh more of the truck than the teaser, focusing on the grille, which should follow Nissan's familial pattern. There's also plenty of footage of the new truck in action, as well as a tiny glimpse of the cabin, which shows (we're guessing) an information display in the instrument cluster.
Take a look below for the video, and then be sure to check back here in one week for the official reveal of the newest Nissan pickup.
