How often should I service my 2020 Nissan Altima?
When it comes to your Nissan Altima, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Altima has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 2020 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2020 Nissan Altima problems later.
Bring your 2020 Nissan Altima to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Altima’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2020 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Altima stranded. Your Nissan Altima could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2020 Nissan Altima's engine run smoother. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2020 Altima in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2020 Nissan Altima.
