Essential Maintenance Tips for Your Nissan Juke
The Nissan Juke is a fantastic model, but like any vehicle, it will need a little care and attention to ensure that it continues to offer excellent performance. Here are some of the essential maintenance tips you should be following from the moment you leave the forecourt.
A Quick Once Over:
You shouldn’t only rely on the computer in your Nissan Juke to let you know if there is a basic problem. You should give your Juke a quick once over regularly to ensure that your headlights, taillights, indicators and windscreen wipers are working correctly. You should also check that your tyres are in good condition and not wearing unevenly.
As part of this maintenance, you should also check your fluid levels and tyre pressure. It is fairly simple to check your power steering fluid, engine oil, and brake fluid, but if they start to run dry, it can cause serious problems.
Get to Know Your Dash:
The dashboard on most modern cars has so many lights and displays that it can be a little confusing. However, your dash is like an information centre for the health of your vehicle. A warning light will flash to alert you if you need mechanical assistance before a failure. Therefore, it is a good idea to get to know the dash on your Juke, so you can learn what each light means and take action when you need it.
Familiarise Yourself With Changing a Wheel:
While it is a good idea to ensure that your spare is fully inflated, it won’t do you much good if you don’t know how to change a wheel. Although you can call out a breakdown service, this could leave you waiting by the side of the road for hours. To avoid this, you should familiarise yourself with how to change the wheels on your Juke. You should be aware of where your jack fits under the Juke and how to loosen the wheel nuts. Remember that changing a tyre can be hazardous, particularly if you are at the side of the road, so try practicing how to do it when you are not under pressure.
Establish a Servicing Schedule:
Regular servicing is vitally important to ensure that your Juke operates at peak efficiency and performance. Fortunately, the Maddington Nissan team can assist you with this. Your new Nissan Juke should be serviced once a year, where our technicians will check for any potential issues before they can develop into a problem later.
