Answer 1
Get references for an independent shop that will use Nissan parts and have the maint. done there. Learn how to change engine and cabin filters yourself(IF you are so inclined , as they are generally pretty easy). Skip the power steering 'service' if it in any way involves the word 'flush' (for that matter , my opinion is skip anything that uses the word 'flush'). Keep ATF fluid factory. Just suggestions. I am VERY biased towards using OEM parts , work at a dealership , but ANYTIME it would benefit the owner , I prefer to see independents get the work. -
