Questions About 2012 Nissan Frontier’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Nissan? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Nissan tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. 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 Frontier is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Frontier transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2012 Frontier’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Nissan. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
