Two area Nissan dealerships are participating in the automaker’s Tri-State Vehicle Assistance Program, offering repair and replacement services to all residents whose vehicles were damaged by Sandy.

As a part of the program, Great Neck Nissan and Nissan of Queens are providing transportation, assessment and repair of damaged vehicles at no cost to the consumer and will work directly with insurance providers to assure claims are managed accurately. Furthermore, if a vehicle is deemed to be a total loss or if the owner chooses not to repair it, the consumer will be eligible for special pricing on a new vehicle. Rental cars are available as well.

Stacey Baron, general manager of Great Neck Nissan, estimated the number of people who have participated in the program so far to be in the hundreds.

“We’re towing them in with their cars while they’re in the tow truck,” Baron said. “They’re just stranded where they are.”

Baron went on to say that many of the cars brought in are considered to be a total loss.

“It’s the saddest thing. They’re coming in to buy two cars. The normal conversation is to negotiate price, negotiate color and they’re looking at me like they don’t know what to do. They’re more concerned about getting contractors in their homes. They’ve been so grateful.”

One Great Neck Nissan customer gave a positive review of the initiative on Great Neck Nissan’s website. Along with praising the program, the man was also happy with the staff, describing one salesman as having a “straight-forward approach,” adding, “his ability to make someone feel welcome was a relief after an exhausting day of disappointments.”

Those interested in the program are encouraged to call 888-376-9519 to find out more information.
