Nissan Maintenance - Frequently Asked Questions

Does Nissan Offer Free Maintenance?

Nissan doesn't offer free maintenance, but its factory warranty plan does cover repair and replacement of defective parts for up to three years or 60,000 km. Nissan also offers powertrain and corrosion coverage to keep your car in top shape for the long haul. Our factory-certified technicians will happily carry out any repairs your Nissan needs, even after your warranty's conclusion.

How Often Should I Change the Oil in my Nissan?

Whether your "Change Engine Oil Soon" message shows up or not, we recommend booking an oil and filter change every six months and every 8,000 km for Nissan models released in 2014 and after. Vehicles of model year 2013 and older should be booked for an oil change every four months and 6,000 km. Feel free to contact us to book your next oil change with our service centre.

What Are the Main Causes of Battery Failure?

It's only natural for batteries to wear out over time, but several factors can cause your Nissan's battery to fail prematurely. Prolonged exposure to excessive heat or cold and infrequent startups are two of the most common causes of early battery failure, as are aftermarket accessories that haven't been properly grounded.

When Should I Get My Vehicle's Tires Rotated?

Tire rotation is an easy way of ensuring that your Nissan's tires will wear out evenly and make the most of their tread life. We recommend contacting Alta Nissan for a rotation every six months or 8,000 km - whichever comes first.

How Will I Know When I Need New Tires?

Seasonal changes notwithstanding, there are plenty of tell-tale signs your tires need changing, beginning with a tread depth of under 1.5 mm. Furthermore, if tire cord or fabric are showing through the rubber, if bulges and splits have made their presence known, or if the tread and sidewall bear deep cuts, it's time to give us a ring and book a service call.
