Nissan Alert! Items Almost Stolen

nissan alert items almost stolen

As you’d probably guess (if it was in the least bit important), I’ve set up a a fair few email alerts to keep my finger on the pulse of the autoblogosphere. “Nissan” usually renders unto me four or five stories on some electric vehicle they’ll never make and a review or two of a Z car. This is the first time I’ve seen a link called “more news from your region.” While Levittown isn’t exactly my region (off by 252 miles), I was happy to see that no item is too small for Google’s news spiders. And that, for once during these dark days for the auto biz, I linked to a story with a happy ending. Of course, one wonders who in their right mind would bother reporting that they were almost the victim of a crime. And whether or not the police asked the citizen involved whether or not they take Ambien CR.

    Audi often finds itself in the shadows of Mercedes and BMW, but it emerges from the shadows when it comes to getting tickets. The Audi A4 is the ninth most ticketed car in America which isn’t surprising given the stats of its 1.8 liter turbo and its power V-6 engine.

    Back in the days of cassettes, I used to keep one of those huge cases with 60 tapes in it. My friends would often ask "why do you carry all of those tapes?" Because I NEED all of my music at my disposal at all times! Well, that was until I emerged from the local multiplex one night to find my GTIs window smashed and all of my tapes...gone. It was the perfect time to convert to CDs anyway.

    I've been lucky I guess. I've left my inoperable 99 Legacy in the driveway of my in-laws' house for just over 2 years now. Unlocked. One day someone hit their neighborhood rummaging through vehicles. They got about $2 in change from my father-in-law's F150 but I guess they were pissed there was nothing but a Chilton's, a radiator, and misc. front accessory guards/brackets/pulleys/head gaskets and a timing belt inside the car so they left all four doors open. Good thing they didn't open the trunk and see the two loose stereo units. Nothing was missing that I could determine.
