Maintenance Schedules

Maintenance Interval Guidelines

Your Nissan is designed to run for many years to come, when correctly maintained. The way you drive your vehicle and the conditions in which it operates can affect how frequently its components need to be inspected, adjusted or replaced.

Factors that Affect Maintenance Requirements

Shorter trips

Repeated short trips of less than 8 kilometers increase your vehicle’s maintenance needs.

Freezing Conditions

Canadian driving conditions are classified as ‘Severe Operating Conditions’ and therefore it is critical to ensure you follow the recommendations found in your owner’s manual for all maintenance-related items.

In cold weather, your vehicle will need maintenance more often if your average trip length is less than 16 kms.

Hot weather

Stop-and-go traffic or long-distances at low speeds can place additional stress on a vehicle’s cooling systems, requiring more frequent checks.

Salt, Dust & Mud

Driving on salt-spread roads or in dusty, rough or muddy conditions can accelerate wear on various vehicle components.

Vehicle Loads

Towing a trailer, using a camper or car-top carrier and frequently hauling heavy loads make your vehicle work harder, so it will require attention more often.

Standard Maintenance

Performed every 8,000 kilometers or 6 months, whichever comes first

Standard maintenance generally applies when you primarily operate your vehicle in temperate conditions.
