Every car on the road has its problems. Every brand also tends to have specific issues that plague its cars. If you own a Nissan, there are a few problems that are more likely to occur due to the way that Nissan manufactures its vehicles and the materials that it uses. Below are four of the most common repairs that you are likely to see as a Nissan owner.
For the most part, the average Nissan will have to deal with the same kind of maintenance issues that are typical for other vehicles. Little things like the serpentine belt aren’t necessarily huge expenses, but they’re important to take care of as soon as possible. Other issues, like faulty thermostats or front-end alignments, are just as common in Nissans as they are in any other.
One of the major recent issues has been with airbags. Nissan makes use of airbags from Takata, which have been proven to hurl out shrapnel upon impact. As you might imagine, these airbags are part of a huge recall and can be replaced for free. Unfortunately, though, they’re a guaranteed trip to the dealership for owners of Nissans.
Many late-model Nissan cars and vans have significant problems with coolant leakage. Not necessarily a huge problem at first, this can end up being an issue that requires significant repair work. It’s recommended that you visit a shop that has experience with Nissan repair as soon as possible, as you don’t want to deal with the fallout of running completely out of coolant.
A surprisingly large number of Nissan vehicles are seeing major transmission issues. While this can be a nuisance when your vehicle is still under warranty, it’s also the type of problem that can cause you to buy a new car if your warranty has expired. If you even suspect a transmission problem, it’s better to get it looked at earlier rather than later. The sooner you can identify the problem, the better the chance you have.
As you might imagine, merely owning a Nissan is no a guarantee that you will have one of these problems. Every car is different and small changes in manufacturing can have a huge impact on the way your car performs. What’s important, though, is that you pay attention to the issues that are unique to your vehicle and have them cared for as soon as possible.
