Is Nissan's Hands-free program better than Tesla's?
Nissan will soon begin selling a new hands-free automated highway driving assistance program in Japan that goes even further than what Tesla offers.
Nissan's ProPilot 2.0 will follow a navigation route while allowing the driver to take his hands completely off the steering wheel in some situations.
Like Tesla's Navigate on Autopilot, Nissan's system will only function on limited-access highways providing "on-ramp to off-ramp" automated driving. Nissan's new system combines features similar to those of both Tesla's Navigate on Autopilot and General Motors' Cadillac Super Cruise. (Nissan currently offers a widely available system called ProPilot or ProPilot Assist, but it only keeps a car in its lane and maintains a safe following distance from other vehicles.)
With warmer weather on the horizon, now is the time to get your vehicle ready for travel. Your owner's manual has suggested service milestones that are recommended to keep your vehicle in good shape. Read your manual and see what needs to be serviced on your vehicle. If your car needs a new battery or tune-up, get those things serviced before your trip.
Check the tread, air pressure and wear on all of your tires. Check the spare too! While you are at it, make sure you have all of the proper equipment to change your tire in your vehicle.
Pack the Right Things
A map is a good idea if your GPS goes out. You may also want to consider boots and rain gear if your vehicle breaks down in weather. Blankets, food, water, and flashlights are good for a spring safety kit in the car.
