Back in 1914, Datsun was named after the surnames of its 3 founders–Den, Aoyoma, and Takeuchi. Over the years, the brand took several names and eventually became “Datsun” to phonetically sound like the “Son of DAT”. The spelling of “Datson” was rejected in Japan because “son” means “loss” in Japanese, thus “Datsun” was born.
The Nissan name started being used in the 1930, and when the Nissan Motor Company was founded in 1934, it continued to market its vehicles under the Datsun brand name until 1999. The Nissan Maxima line is their best known brand, but Nissan also has vehicles in the coupe, sports car, minivan, truck, crossover, SUV, and hybrid markets.
Santa Rosa Transmission and Car Care’s mechanics are highly-skilled working with Nissans and are certified to work on the older, as well as the newer Nissan models. Sometimes a vintage Datsun model will come in for service, but more frequently, our customers will bring us their Nissan Maximas, Nissan Sentras, Nissan Altimas, and Nissan Muranos, just to name a few.
