Questions About 2020 Nissan Altima’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Nissan tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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.
  • Does my Altima's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Nissan Altima’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Nissan, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
