Your Guide to 2012 Nissan NV1500 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Nissan NV1500 and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your NV1500 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 NV1500 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2012 Nissan NV1500!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Nissan, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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 NV1500's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2012 Nissan NV1500 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Nissan NV1500 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Nissan NV1500 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your NV1500's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2012 Nissan NV1500? 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Nissan NV1500 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 NV1500) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Nissan NV1500 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2012 Nissan NV1500's engine run smoother. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2012 NV1500 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2012 Nissan NV1500.

Maintaining your Nissan NV1500 steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Nissan NV1500 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Nissan NV1500's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Nissan NV1500 maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Nissan NV1500 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
