A New Car Owner's Guide to Routine Maintenance

Last updated 6 years ago

If you bought a new Nissan and you wish to optimize its high-quality, reliable performance for many years down the road, remember to stay on top of routine maintenance. Here are the most important services for your Nissan:

Tire Care

To get the best fuel efficiency, check your Nissan’s tire pressure and inflate your tires as necessary at least once per month. This maintenance task is also a safety issue; underinflated tires provide inadequate traction and can dramatically increase your stopping distance on slippery surfaces. Furthermore, overinflated tires wear faster than properly inflated tires and may even cause a blowout. Be sure to have your tires rotated and your wheels aligned in order to increase the tread life of your tires. 





Brake Care

Your brakes are one of the most important safety features in your Nissan. If you have to press the brake pedal further than normal in order to achieve adequate stopping power, your brakes may be starting to wear. It’s definitely time to head to the Nissan dealership for service if you hear unusual whining or grinding sounds coming from your brakes. Remember, if you catch and repair brake problems early, you will save lots of money in the long run. 

Oil Changes

Getting your Nissan’s engine oil changed at the Nissan dealer is crucial to the health of your vehicle’s engine. Clean engine oil cools and lubricates your engine, but dirty engine oil puts additional stress on your engine and wears down its components. Check your owner’s manual to determine the best interval for oil changes.
