Here’s Why 2018 Nissan Pathfinder Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Nissan Pathfinder and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Pathfinder 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 Pathfinder maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2018 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. 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. 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 help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2018 Nissan Pathfinder problems later.

Overview of Essential Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Pathfinder’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan Pathfinder battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder's engine run smoother. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 Pathfinder, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2018 Nissan Pathfinder.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan Pathfinder can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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, 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Nissan Pathfinder's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Nissan Pathfinder maintenance, 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’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder maintenance and repairs.

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

2018 Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 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 should I switch my Nissan Pathfinder to 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.
  •  Why are my Nissan dashboard lights on? 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
