After the Ad Went Viral, Nissan Reached out and Purchased the Car.
In addition to purchasing the vehicle, Nissan donated $1,000 to Wounded Warrior.
Go ahead. I dare you. Leave these cars overnight in a dark parking lot in Modesto, CA, - a place known to have the highest car theft rates in the U.S.* I am certainly worried about two of them. One of them (I'll let you decide which one) will probably be exactly where I left it the morning after. Of course with a 3.0L 190hp V6 engine and a respectable 205 ft-lbs. @ 4000 RPM it's more like an ugly girl with a great personality. Sure there are things that might make you regret this purchase. It could be that you regret the stylish front end, the real leather seats or the worry-free attitude about parking it just about anywhere. The next time you take your new car out among the treachery of the grocery store parking lot you'll wish you had a car like this. There's no limit on the peace of mind this car can provide and in that sense, this car is priceless. It's current price of only $1,400 ensure that now is the only time it will get stolen.
