Why Is Routine Car Maintenance Important?

Regular servicing ensures that all components are in optimal condition, minimizing the risk of breakdowns and costly repairs. Maintenance tasks such as oil changes, tire rotations, and filter replacements enhance performance, fuel efficiency, and safety. Consistent upkeep contributes to higher resale value and extends the car's lifespan.

How Often Should a Vehicle Be Inspected?

For specific information about your Nissan, be sure to consult your owner’s manual. On average, a Nissan should be inspected every 12 months (once a year).

Scheduled inspections can detect potential issues early on, preventing significant problems down the road. Fixing minor problems will be cheaper than fixing major ones later.  

How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?

Oil changes are a vital maintenance service for all vehicles powered by a combustion engine. Depending on your driving habits, the age of your car, and the engine, your vehicle will need an oil change every 3,000 to 10,000 miles.

For specific oil change information regarding your Nissan, consult your owner’s manual.

Why Service My Car With Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Parts?

Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts are made in the same factory as your vehicle and are designed to fit perfectly and operate with your vehicle’s established system.

Since OEM parts are made specifically to fit the same manufacturer’s vehicles, these parts help maintain the car’s originality and value. Many OEM parts also come with warranties so that you can drive confidently.

Our Nissan parts center carries Nissan OEM parts and accessories for drivers interested in customizing their own vehicles. Our service center also uses genuine OEM Nissan parts.

How Do I Know What Service My Vehicle Needs?

If you’re unsure of the services your vehicle needs during a maintenance appointment, your owner’s manual can help. It will highlight the maintenance needs of your car.

Don’t have your maintenance manual? Our service technicians can help. We will inspect your vehicle and let you know what your car may need based on its condition and mileage.

Why Does My Vehicle Need Tire Rotations?

Tire rotations ensure that your vehicle’s tires are worn evenly. The rotation works against uneven wear that happens when your car uses the same part of the tire for a long period of time.

Tire rotation also helps maintain proper alignment for your car’s wheels. Proper alignment prevents possible mechanical problems down the line.
