Your Questions Answered by the Team of Professionals at Benson Nissan

While there's no doubting the superior quality and reliability of a Nissan vehicle, at some point, you are going to need to bring it in for auto service. A regularly routine maintenance schedule is vital for your Nissan's long-term health and value, and you're going to need an expert team you can trust to get the job done. The team at Benson Nissan is here to help drivers around Greer and Simpsonville in that regard, but at the same time, we're also here to empower you with the knowledge you need to know what to look for to keep your Nissan running as it should for years to come.

How do I know when it's time to get auto service?

There are two ways to know when it's time. The first is when you begin to notice that something doesn't feel quite right. Nobody knows your vehicle better than you, so if it's not performing the way it should, it's time to bring it in. Pay attention to your vehicle warning lights, as they will alert you when something is wrong.

The second is to keep to your regularly scheduled service interval plan, which your technician can discuss with you in detail. Service intervals begin at the 3,750-miles/three-month mark and run through the entire lifespan of your Nissan. Each interval involves different service work, which our technicians can walk you through.

Why is it important to stick to a regularly scheduled maintenance plan?

There are two main reasons to do this. The first is your personal safety. A safe vehicle is one that has been serviced by a factory-certified technician, who can alert you to any current or potential problem areas in your vehicle.

The second is the value of your vehicle. When it comes time for your next upgrade, you'll get the most for your trade-in if you have a Nissan that has kept to its maintenance schedule.

Does Benson Nissan have Contact-Free Service?

Absolutely. Our team of factory-certified technicians is very conscious about current events, and we want our customers around Greenville and Shelby NC, to feel as safe as possible.

How do I know when I need an oil change?

This largely depends on what kind of oil you have in your vehicle. The breakdown is as follows:

  • Conventional: 3,000 miles
  • Synthetic Blend: 5,000 miles
  • Full Synthetic: 7,500 miles

How often should I get my brakes checked?

Your first brake inspection will happen at your second service interval, at the 7,500-mile/six-month mark. From there, you'll have an inspection about once every six months. However, if you detect that something is wrong ahead of time, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment with our service department.

When is a good time to replace my car battery?

On average, your car battery will last between three to five years, depending on the brand. We recommend getting your batteries replaced either in the Fall or Spring seasons, as the harsh climates created by Summer and Winter weather around Forest City have the potential to cause major problems on old batteries.

How often should I get my tires rotated?

Tire rotations on the Nissan maintenance schedule occur every six months. It's strongly recommended to keep to this schedule.

How do I know when my tires need to be replaced?

Tires are an easy thing to keep track of on your end. A quick visual inspection will usually tell you when it's time to change it. If you take a penny and stick it into the tread of your tires and you can see the top of Lincoln's head, it's time to change your tires. In terms of numbers, tires are generally changed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, depending on your brand.
