What to Know About 2016 Nissan Altima Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Nissan Altima and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Altima. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Altima maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 Nissan Altima!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Altima's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2016 Nissan Altima problems.

Overview of Essential Nissan Altima Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2016 Nissan Altima to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Altima. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2016 Nissan Altima be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Altima may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan Altima battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Altima stranded. Your Nissan Altima won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2016 Nissan Altima engine. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 Altima, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 Nissan Altima? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan Altima can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Nissan Altima steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Nissan Altima's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan Altima maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Nissan Altima’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Nissan Altima? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2016 Nissan Altima maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.
