Questions About 2001 Nissan Altra EV’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to 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 Altra EV is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Altra EV transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 Altra EV’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
