Fred Diaz, divisional vice president, Sales and Marketing and Service and Parts, Nissan U.S.A. said: "Nissan's record October performance demonstrates that a Washington shutdown was not enough to shut down our sales momentum. With the all-new 2014 Rogue hitting dealer showrooms this month, we expect Nissan's growth to continue to accelerate."
