2017 Nissan Rogue Sport

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend a car safety event courtesy of the Nissan Bloggin Mamas Safety Academy. I learned so many interesting tips about cars that really surprised me.

  • Car crashes are the leading cause of death for latinos 1-34
  • Check vehicles VIN for open recalls, recall repairs are free
