You purchased your dream car, and now you want to keep it on the road as long as possible. Often it is confusing how you can maintain your car to its best condition.
When owning a Nissan, the odds can be in your favor to maintain the car you own for as long as possible in order to avoid new car payments, if you take care of it. Read the following tips to help maintain your car to its fullest potential:
- Perform routine oil changes. Every 3 months of 3,000 miles you should change your car's oil and oil filter. It is crucial to change your oil in order to maintain the life of your engine. You might think you are saving money by avoiding an oil change as long as possible, but the $35-$40 you might be saving is not worth thousands of dollars out of your pocket for a new engine.
- Ask about a multi-point check up. Every oil change in a Nissan dealership is performed with a courtesy multi-point inspection which covers a full range of safety checks such as tire tread, a brake inspection, and inspection of any fluid leaks. The technician may recommend a scheduled service of fluid changes which should be performed at a specific mileage. Follow these recommended services in order to avoid problems down the road.
- Don't let car problems go awry. Is there a check engine light on in your car? Get it checked out. Car problems don't get better over time. What might be a small problem now can become a larger problem in the future if you let it go.
Keep up with car maintenance and you will keep your car on the road. For more service tips and advice from the experts, contact the Doylestown Nissan Service department today at 215-674-9300.
