Part of the fun of CES is seeing the cool new products coming to the market soon, but the mondo electronics trade show is also big on pulling out all the stops to give attendees a peek into the future, or at least what various manufacturers think the future might look like.
Today, Nissan started building its Leaf electric cars in the United States. In addition to local production, the 2013 model year also brings several improvements to the Leaf, including a lower base price, faster charger, and some additional options.

Each year, car reliability trends begin surfacing as we look at data by brand and car type, with periodic spikes common around redesigns and new technology. As is often the case, the muscle and otherwise sporty cars are seeing much reliability activity in the latest Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey.
Redesigned from the ground-up for 2013, the new Pathfinder drives a lot like a lifted Nissan Altima. We get the feeling that is exactly what Nissan intended.

In the market for a new car? The long Labor Day weekend can be a great time to get a deal on a leftover 2012 model. The airwaves will be overflowing with promotions, appealing to your heartstrings and wallet. I can be tempting to chase the too-good-to-be-true deals, losing sight of choosing the best car. Not to worry: Consumer Reports experts have cut through the clutter, highlighting good deals on recommended cars.
Nissan has unveiled the redesigned Note hatchback in Japan. It's a world car that will replace the Versa hatchback in the U.S. market for the 2014 model year. As such, it differs significantly from the Versa sedan.

It simply doesn't do much wrong. At all.
