Newton Nissan South’s 4th Annual Car Giveaway!

Car Giveaway

Did you know? Newton Nissan South hosts a car giveaway every year?

Well, it’s TRUE.

One lucky Middle TN high school student will drive away with a Nissan Versa this summer! For the fourth year in a row, we’ll be giving away a brand-new car for absolutely FREE. You read that right–no taxes or hidden fees. FREE! Why? Because we want to give back to our community, and one of the ways we can do that is by rewarding our hard-working students with a car giveaway!

So, how does it work?

  1. Sign up here.
  2. Drop off your report card at our Shelbyville location by June 10th. We’ll also need a copy of your (or your parent’s) driver’s license.
  3. Come to the big event on June 14th, at 6 PM!

How many entries can I have?

Students will receive an entry for every “A” on their report card! The more A’s, the more entries into drawing! Believe us…the odds will be in your favor! It is worth entering! On the night of the drawing, we will have food and drinks for everyone. We look forward to seeing you at the car giveaway!

Here are a few FAQs:

Question: I’m taking a class that only gives me a pass/fail grade, will a “P” for “Pass” count as an entry?

No. Only grades that are considered an “A” on the report card will be eligible.

Question: I am taking a college class during high school, will that class be eligible for an entry if I get an “A” in it?

That’s tricky. An “A” from a college/AP class will count only if the class is listed on the high school’s report card (not on a college report card).

Question: I am a college student. Can I enter the car giveaway?

No. The giveaway is currently only open to high school students in a Tennessee high school.

Question: Can I use my Driver’s Permit to enter the car giveaway?

Yes. You can now use your driver’s permit, driver’s license, or student ID to enter, as long as your parent or legal guardian has a valid driver’s license.

Question: My school does not give out report cards. Can I print off my grades from the school’s online portal?

We cannot accept copies or print offs of report cards, unless they are verifed. To verify your grades, go to the Welcome Desk at Newton Nissan South and ask our teammates to log in to your school’s portal (you will need to provide your login). From there, we can verify and print your grades!

Question: I totally forgot to bring in my report card and now the deadline has passed. Can you make an exception for me?

No. We are unable to make exceptions.

Question: My child brought in her grades but she won’t be able to make the car giveaway. Can I stand-in for her?

No. Students must be present to win.

We can’t wait to see you!

Don’t forget: the deadline for report cards is June 10th!

Good luck!

The Newton Advantage | Frequently Asked Questions

Newton Advantage

Starting in 2019, Newton Nissan South launched the Newton Advantage, a new benefit of purchasing your new Nissan with us here in Shelbyville, just a short drive north of Nashville. We offer this because we want to offer the best to our customers, who are more like family to us.

Included in the Newton Advantage is a 2-year Carefree Maintenance Package and a Lifetime Warranty.

Here are some frequently asked questions about the Newton Advantage:

What vehicles qualify for the Newton Advantage?

The Newton Advantage applies to all new vehicle purchases. We also have a Newton Certified Pre-Owned warranty on select used vehicles.

How long is the “lifetime” warranty really good for?

The Lifetime Warranty is valid for as long as you own the vehicle. You simply must return to our service center every 5 years for a free inspection. The Carefree Maintenance plan is for 24 months (or 30,000 miles), which gives you 4 oil changes, tire rotations, lube, and filter changes.

How much does it cost?

The Newton Advantage is absolutely free. We want to be your Nissan dealership for life, not just as a customer, but as our family & friends.

Where am I covered?

The Carefree Maintenance Plan requires that you get your oil changes & tire rotations here at our service center in Shelbyville, which is only a short drive from Murfreesboro, Franklin, and Manchester. You can trust our Nissan-certified technicians and enjoy free coffee, snacks, and WiFi while you wait.

However, there is no requirement to get your car’s service for the Lifetime Warranty done here. Just follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance plan and keep all your records.

Can the Lifetime Warranty be transferred?

No. The Lifetime Warranty expires when your vehicle is sold, traded, or deemed a total loss.

What exactly is covered?

The following components, parts, and labor are covered: Engine, Transmission, Transfer Case, Drive Axle, and Seals & Gaskets.

Some restrictions do apply, so ask your service adviser for more details on exactly what is and what is not covered.

Bigger & Better: Trunk or Treat 2018

We loved Trunk or Treat 2018!

Trunk or Treat 2018

Easily our favorite day of the year, we here at Newton Nissan South love getting to see our community turn out for Trunk or Treat. It’s also an important day for us, because it is a day that we don’t promote ourselves. Instead, we promote our community. This year, the Cascade High School Band Boosters helped us decorate over 40 trunks that we filled with enough candy for all the afternoon’s visitors! In return, we were able to donate some funds to help them continue to grow their program.

Trunk or Treat

 

Additionally, the National Honor Society partnered up with our second community organization, the Humane Society of Shelbyville-Bedford County! They teamed up to also decorate several trunks to join in the fun. And, of course, our very own Newton Panda Bear made her annual appearance!

We could not have asked for better weather for Trunk or Treat this year! The students & their cars showed up early and began setting up: decorating their cars, trucks, and SUVs into spooky entrances, fun characters, science labs, and music-filled pop culture references, such as The Wizard of Oz and Star Wars. We had a friendly competition over whose trunk was the best, and we brought in fun bouncy houses and, new for this year, a mechanical bull for the kids to enjoy! We had a much bigger turnout this year, and we were so proud and happy to host everyone and serve lots of pizza and candy for a few hours!

Trunk or Treat Trunk or Treat

One of the winners was an adorable little white car, simply decorated as…well watch this video to find out:

 

So, why do we do this?

Because we here believe that our customers are more important than our cars; our community is more valuable than our bottom line. And to show this, we simply want to be a part of each others’ lives. And Trunk or Treat is one of those days that allows us to host a fun event, get to know our community, and give back.

Thank you for being a part of our community!

We hope to see you next year at Trunk or Treat 2019!

Here are the top things you need to know about it:

The new Altima has been truly overhauled for a sleeker, sportier feel. Check out this head-to-head comparison with the 2018 Altima:

2019 Nissan AltimaThis sixth-generation Altima now has a deeper Nissan-signature V-motion grille, a floating roof like others in the Nissan lineup, and sharper lines. In fact, the new Altima is 1.1 inches lower in height than previous models.

Smart Technology

The 2019 Nissan Altima is leading the way in its class with the addition of the available ProPilot Assist. This is available on the SV, SL, and Platinum trim levels. ProPilot Assist was included on 2018 models like the Rogue; read more about that feature here. Also available on these trims is the new Rear Automatic Braking (RAB).

Three features are standard on all trims:

All of these combine to create a 360 safety shield around the 2019 Nissan Altima drivers and passengers, as Nissan continues to forge forward in vehicle safety technology.

Here are the top 10 things you need to know about the 2019 Nissan Altima:

  1. Variable Compression Turbo Engine – the world’s first! This combines power & fuel efficiency (combined MPG at 29!)
  2. It’s the 6th generation! The Altima is one of Nissan’s best selling vehicles, and it has been for 25 years.
  3. Brand-new design – it’s lower, wider, and sleeker than ever before.
  4. The backseat room is great for your passengers with long legs!
  5. All-new 8-in touch screen with Apple Car & Android Auto is now standard.
  6. The price is right – still very affordable with better features
  7. New technology: Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (I-FCW), and Intelligent Driver Alertness (I-DA)
  8. Available SR Sport Package
  9. Electronic power steering to help drivers stay in their lane
  10. Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is now available!

These are adapted from the following video. Watch it for a fun review from one of the first people to test drive the Altima!
