Your Guide to 2012 Nissan Cube Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Nissan Cube and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Cube has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Cube, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 Nissan Cube!

Nissan knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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 Cube's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2012 Nissan Cube problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Nissan Cube Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Nissan Cube and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Cube. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2012 Nissan Cube? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan Cube battery. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Cube) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Nissan Cube won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2012 Nissan Cube's engine run smoother. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2012 Cube in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2012 Nissan Cube.

Routine upkeep for your Nissan Cube suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Nissan Cube steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Nissan Cube's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan Cube maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Nissan Cube cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Nissan Cube? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 Nissan Cube. Get answers to common Nissan Cube maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Nissan Cube? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Nissan Cube? If your Nissan Cube has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Nissan dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Nissan Cube, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
