Nissan NV Passenger Driving in the Rain
The NV Passenger puts safety first.

Spring showers may bring more flowers, but they can also bring the risk of slick pavement and potentially hazardous driving conditions. Unfortunately, you can’t always avoid driving your NV Passenger Van when the weather doesn’t cooperate. For those times, follow these simple tips to help keep you and your passengers safe.

Tips for Driving in the Rain
When in a skid, remain calm.


  • Replace windshield wiper inserts that leave streaks and could impair your ability to see.
  • Ensure all headlights, taillights, brake lights and turn signals are properly functioning so other drivers will see you. And always drive with your headlights on when conditions are poor.
  • Double-check that you have adequate tire tread depth and that each tire is properly inflated. This is key to maintaining good traction on wet roadways.
NV Passenger Tip: Take away the guesswork when it comes to your tire pressure. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System [[111]] alerts you when the pressure is too low in one of your tires.


  • Take it slow. With as little as 1/12 inch of water on the road, tires have to displace a gallon of water per second to keep the rubber meeting the road. Taking it slow can help reduce your risk of hydroplaning and losing control.
  • To avoid traffic jams, take the most efficient route. With 3D maps, Points of Interest and real-time traffic, the available Nissan Navigation System [[2544]] will help you get where you’re going with minimal delays.
  • Allow for ample stopping distance to help avoid sudden braking or the need for sharp turns to avoid vehicles ahead.
NV Passenger Tip: All-Season Floor Mats can help protect your NV Passenger from the elements. They’re made of a durable material so they’re built to last and they’re built to stay in place thanks to their custom fit, hooks and grippy-back design. Explore all NV Passenger parts and accessories or shop at the Nissan eStore.


The NV Passenger is equipped with a comprehensive collection of active and passive safety features designed to help respond and protect at every turn.

  • Advanced technology in your NV Passenger can help minimize injury and help keep you safe. Nissan’s Zone Body construction further strengthens that line of defense, helping to absorb impact for the protection of everyone on board.
  • Keep in mind, NV Passenger's bumper is at the height of most cars on the road, helping to protect your passengers in the event of a collision.
  • Don’t forget: NV Passenger’s eight standard airbags can help give you added peace of mind and protection. [[2545]]
