Questions About 2016 Nissan Altima’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Nissan? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use 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. 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? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2016 Altima’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Nissan's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
