2002 Nissan Altima Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Nissan's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Nissan Altima? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Altima’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Altima is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Altima transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Nissan Altima’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Nissan. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
