Your brother is a mechanic and you still bring your car to the dealership? No, you do not need to ever bring your Nissan to the dealership, except for warranty repairs. As long as you have documented maintenance history, they will honor your factory warranty.whitemo said:That's cheap!!!, my dealership charged me $115. I guess I'm not coming back there again.
Now, I have a question.
Do you have to go to the the nissan dealership to have our cars done to be under warranty? Cause my brother has his own auto shop and can do all the necessary work (fix/change/replacements) if and when necessary. I trust my brother from 20 years of experience than those younguns with hardly any experience (from those I saw at the dealership I go to anyway), especially specializing in foreign cars and trucks.

I figure this early it's not a bad thing to have pay the dealer to do the work since they will, in therory, catch something that would be under warranty and fix it. They get paid by the warranty company, I assume, so they should look at it the same as if it was coming out of my pocket. I also told them I had a slight shimmy at 60mph and a slight pull to the left - better to have that checked out and dealt with under warranty now than after 12000 miles when they tell me alignment is my problem.
My dealer only charges $19 for the oil change, which is worth it to me to not have to deal with used oil - and I shouldn't have to worry about the nightmares of oil change shops adding ATF to my CVT..
As soon as I replace the tires, there will be no more tire related work done at the dealer. Discount Tire (called other things outside of SoCal) does balance/rotation for free if you buy the tires from them.
