The heavy Illinois winters can create less-than-ideal driving conditions for you and your Nissan. Visiting the Glendale Nissan Service Center helps drivers prepare their new Pathfinder, Rogue, Sentra, and more for the roads ahead.

Even the rugged lineup of Nissan trucks and SUVs can benefit from seasonal winter services at the hands of our experienced technicians.

Nissan Service Checklist

It’s never a bad time to bring your Nissan in for an inspection or tune-up but it’s especially important to schedule service during the colder months. Our team offers the following maintenance checklist:

Brake Inspections: Worn brakes are particularly dangerous on wet or icy roads. Some indicators that brakes need replacement include squealing sounds, vibrations, and pulling to the side while applying the brakes. We offer thorough inspections and full service.

Replace Tires: The summer heat can expedite wear and tear on tires while winter weather creates slick roads. Extreme temperature drops also cause tires to lose pressure. By inspecting, rotating, and replacing tires regularly drivers can maintain vehicle control and quality performance.

Test the Battery: Icy Illinois temperatures put additional strain on your Nissan’s battery. The cold can also potentially freeze batteries that aren’t fully charged. Our skilled team can test and replace batteries as needed.

Replace Windshield Wipers: Being caught in a winter storm without windshield wipers can become a nightmare. Replacing wipers is a simple and necessary winter service.

Test the Heating System: Some signs of a faulty heating unit include: reduced airflow, odd smells, and delayed heating. We help drivers maintain comfortable vehicle interiors.

We offer all this and more when you visit our service center at Glendale Nissan. Whether you need Nissan parts for your Rogue or car accessories for your Sentra, our technicians are always happy to help.

For drivers going on serious winter adventures throughout the Midwest, we recommend packing an emergency winter car kit.

What to Pack in an Emergency Winter Car Kit

Planning ahead with an emergency winter safety kit can be life-saving during the event of an accident or breakdown. A solid winter kit should include:

  • First Aid
  • Extra Warm Clothing
  • Flashlights
  • Jumper Cables
  • Multi-tool
  • Bottled Water
