Nissan Teana 2.5 Review
Cruising joy

Introduction

Let me first begin by saying that this is not a newly launched car.

So why are we testing it? Simply because balance needs to be restored in the world (and because we’ve curiously not tested it).

What am I on about? Well recently the local scene has been awash with the latest and greatest in continental offerings, while Asian car makers have been slightly slower at shoving new cars in consumers’ faces. So we’ve decided that we have to balance things out a bit with something that more people here would better associate with.

Nissan has long been a staple on our roads and what better way to bring us back to Asia than with its popular family sedan offering the Teana.

Redesigned and styled to fit the contemporary Nissan design language, the large sedan manages to surround all its occupants with meticulous Japanese quality and still look like it costs more than it actually does.

Justin had done a good job then introduce me to the dealer that settles everything fast and smooth for me. Recommended Swiftquote to my friend about the efficient service.

SwiftQuote was swift in quoting a price for my car! It was the highest scrap value that I checked around. After bringing the car to the dealer, the whole process took less than 10mins. I was impressed! Thank you, SwiftQuote!

I sold my car before through other website. The good thing is that SwiftQuote is FREE. I used to pay $100 for this service with that other site. Both are equally good, no hassle and fast. I got to sell my car at a very good price. I would recommend SwiftQuote to any private seller.
