How often should I service my 2017 Nissan Altima?

Here’s Why 2017 Nissan Altima Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Nissan Altima, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper 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. Just follow your 2017 Nissan Altima maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Altima running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 Nissan Altima problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Nissan Altima Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Nissan Altima for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Altima's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2017 Nissan Altima? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan Altima battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Nissan Altima won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2017 Nissan Altima running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2017 Altima. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 Nissan Altima.

Routine upkeep for your Nissan Altima suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Nissan Altima steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Nissan Altima's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan Altima maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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. Need a new Nissan Altima radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2017 Nissan Altima maintenance and repairs.

2017 Nissan Altima Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Nissan Altima. Get answers to common Nissan Altima maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Nissan Altima alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2017 Altima is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Nissan Altima to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Nissan Altima engines.
  • Can Nissan dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan Altima in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
