7 Tips for Making Nissan's Last Over 200,000 Miles

Rolling Hills Nissan Tips: Help Your Vehicle Reach 200,000 Miles

Your car or truck is your home away from home. In the days of the western frontier, stealing a horse could be punishable by death. That puts things into perspective and shows how important your vehicle is. So you want it to run as smoothly as possible for as long as possible. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of the most important tips for getting your vehicle past the 200,000-mile mark.

1. Regular Maintenance

Bringing your vehicle in for regular inspections and service is the best way to stop major problems before they happen and avoid downtime as well as expensive repairs.

2. Pay Attention

Getting to know your vehicle takes time. But when you do, you’ll notice little familiar sounds and behaviors. These are telling you what’s most likely to go wrong in the future. Pay attention and tell your mechanic about them.

3. Don’t Make Unnecessary Trips

If you’re making a lot of one or two block trips, that's hard on your car, and it’s unnecessary. It’s better for your health, and your vehicle’s, to just walk those little trips.

4. Regular oil Changes With Synthetic Oil

Almost every modern car will take synthetic oil. It lasts much longer, works better, and does a much better job. Unless your mechanic advises against it, synthetic is best.

5. Mind Your Transmission Fluid

Most transmissions will never need to be flushed and changed. But some do. It’s best to have your transmission checked- just to be safe.

6. Keeping the Car Clean

You’d be surprised how much of a difference a little regular cleaning can do. Fight back against filth build-up and maintain the resale value with regular cleanings, inside and out.

7. Mind the Three B's: Bushings, Bearings, and Belts

Bushings, Bearings, and Belts are what socks and underwear are to your day to day routine. They wear out and need to be changed regularly.
