2015 Nissan Altima Service DentonIf you have a Nissan Altima, you need to view your sedan as an investment. To get the most out of your vehicle and ensure it stays in the best possible shape, it is crucial to stick to your service schedule. This will ensure that every component in your Altima functions correctly, keeping you safe and maximizing performance as well as fuel efficiency. As a bonus, following the service schedule will optimize the amount of money you can get if you choose to sell or trade in your 2015 Altima for a newer version in a few years.

Get a Multi-Point Inspection

No matter when you take your Altima in to be serviced, you should always ask for a Multi-Point Inspection, which will typically be a complimentary service. This is a great way to make sure that your Nissan isn’t experiencing issues you haven’t noticed, as the inspection will cover all of the major components and most likely issues.

Normal or Severe Schedule

Your exact service schedule will vary based on your driving habits. The typical schedule includes maintenance every 6 months or 5,000 to 7,5000 miles while the severe one requires intervals of 3 months or 3,750 miles. You should opt for the severe schedule if you frequently take trips shorter than 5 miles, drive in stop-and-go traffic while in hot weather, drive at low speeds over long distances, or drive in rough or dusty conditions.

Scheduled Services

You can always ask your service center for the maintenance schedule, but there are some important things to know. You should have your engine filter and oil replaced and your tires rotated every 6 months or 5,000 miles. Every 10,000 miles, you will want to also inspect the drive shaft boots, differential oil, CVT fluid, automatic transmission, and brake components, including cables, lines, drums, linings, rotors, and pads. Get a new in-cabin microfilter at 18 months or 15,000 miles, and don’t forget to repeat these services when necessary.
