By now we've all read or heard a horrific story about someone forgetting a child or pet in the backseat of their vehicle on a hot day. Unfortunately, many of these stories have tragic endings that could have been avoided. When a child falls asleep in the backseat of a vehicle and a parent has several things running through their mind, the circumstances line up for a potential incident to occur. Luckily, the Nissan Rear Door Alert feature is here to make sure that these types of problems become a thing of the past. Lithia Nissan of Clovis, located at 370 W Herndon Avenue in Clovis, CA, is here to tell you all about this exciting feature.

What is Nissan's Rear Door Alert

Being an innovative brand that is focused heavily on safety, Nissan has developed Rear Door Alert. This feature is a signal to remind people to check the backseat before they go onto their errand or meeting. The hope is that this feature will alert folks before anything terrible happens to a child or pet because they are trapped in a hot car. The way it work is that if a rear door was opened before a trip started, but not opened after the vehicle was put in park, the Nissan car, truck, or SUV will release a chirping sound from the horn to let the driver know they might want to check the backseat.
