What to Know About 2016 Nissan Pathfinder Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Nissan Pathfinder to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Pathfinder. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Pathfinder maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Pathfinder running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2016 Nissan Pathfinder problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Nissan Pathfinder Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Nissan Pathfinder for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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 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 2016 Nissan Pathfinder be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Pathfinder may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan Pathfinder battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Pathfinder stranded. Your Nissan Pathfinder won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2016 Nissan Pathfinder's engine run smoother. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 Pathfinder in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2016 Nissan Pathfinder.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan Pathfinder can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Nissan Pathfinder's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan Pathfinder maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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 it time to replace the radiator in your Nissan Pathfinder? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2016 Nissan Pathfinder maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2016 Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Nissan Pathfinder. Get answers to common Nissan Pathfinder maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Nissan Pathfinder? 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 does my Nissan Pathfinder need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Nissan Pathfinder? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? 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 Pathfinder, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
