How To Factory Order A Nissan (7 Easy Steps)
I am a serial entrepreneur and a consumer advocate. When I’m not helping car buyers, I love working on ventures that have a positive impact.
Factory ordering a car means that you are buying directly from the manufacturer, but the manufacturer is not selling directly. You will work with dealers but with the advantages of customizing your car just as you want and bypassing the increased costs of buying from dealers or third-party agents.
Now, factory ordering a Nissan can be a bit confusing. This is because many brands make up the Nissan Motor Group; Nissan, Infiniti, and NISMO. Our goal is to guide you through the process of factory ordering a Nissan to give you a seamless experience.
To factory order your Nissan, you have to visit the Nissan motor group website, choose Nissan, select your country, the car you wish to factory order, build, get a quote, test drive, find a dealer and finalize payments.
Here’s a detailed guide on how to factory order a Nissan car!
