Maintenance for Your 2010 Nissan Pathfinder

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2010 Nissan Pathfinder?

Your Guide to 2010 Nissan Pathfinder Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Nissan Pathfinder to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Pathfinder has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Pathfinder maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2010 Nissan Pathfinder!

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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 Pathfinder's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2010 Nissan Pathfinder problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Nissan Pathfinder Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2010 Nissan Pathfinder for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Pathfinder. 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.

Could your 2010 Nissan Pathfinder be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Pathfinder may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Pathfinder 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Nissan Pathfinder 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 prevent premature wear on your 2010 Nissan Pathfinder engine. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 2010 Pathfinder, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2010 Nissan Pathfinder.

Routine upkeep for your Nissan Pathfinder suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Nissan Pathfinder 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 Pathfinder's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Nissan Pathfinder services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Nissan Pathfinder’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Nissan Pathfinder radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2010 Nissan Pathfinder maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
