Nissan is a Japanese automobile manufacturing company that sell cars worldwide. Nissan is known for reliable cars and trucks, and for producing some of the most exciting sports cars of all time. A Nissan service manual provides all the technical instruction the home mechanic needs, no matter if they are working on a modern Nissan sedan or a classic Nissan sports car.
Nissan gained fame and international recognition in the late 1960’s with the development of the Datsun 210 and the 240Z, known as the Fairlady in the home market. At the time, Nissan built cars and trucks under a variety of names, and had established the Nissan name in the 1930s. Datsun, which is an acronym organized using the first letters of the three founders last name, produced vehicles as early as 1933 and held a contract to build and assemble British-designed Austin vehicles before World War 2. In most export markets, Nissan used the Datsun name until the mid-1980s, when it was phased out. In recent years, Nissan has begun using the Datsun name again.
Nissan and Datsun trucks have a long history of excellence and durability. As one of the first small trucks in the United States, the Datsun 220 was introduced to Americans in 1958. The small truck proved itself to be tough enough to compete against larger American trucks and the B-Series engines demonstrated the reliability Nissan was known for in the home market. Today, the Datsun “Bullet Side” pickup, built from 1973 to 1979 and introduced many new features, including the “King Cab,” an extended cab that gave drivers more room inside. Today, these trucks are collectors items and prices have began to skyrocket as the best examples have been snapped up by collectors.
In the United States, no car established Nissan as well as the 240Z introduced in 1969. With a slick, aerodynamic design, the 240Z was unlike anything on the market at the time. Powered by an inline six cylinder motor and available with an automatic or manual transmission, the 240Z was an instant classic. Today, these cars are highly desirable and collectible.
Nissan today produces a wide range of utilitarian vehicles and exciting performance models. Servicing and maintaining Nissan vehicles is straightforward with a Nissan repair manual that describes the specific steps the home mechanic must take to correctly diagnose and correct minor issues and make major repairs easily.
