Auto Service FAQs


Does Harbor Nissan Provide Pickup and Delivery Service?

Yes. We know your time is limited, so if you need us to pick up and/or deliver your vehicle to and from our Nissan Service center, we can make that happen. As long as you live in the Charlotte Harbor area, North Port, Arcadia, or Lehigh Acres, we can pick up and drop off your vehicle for a convenient service experience.

Do You Have Contact-Free Service?

Yes. Our dealership is currently offering contact-free service options that allow you to drop off your vehicle at our dealership and pick it up again with minimal contact. Plus, our teams were protective gear and masks while working inside your vehicle, and we use seat, steering wheel, and shifter covers for extra protection. Once work is complete, we sanitize the interior touch points of the vehicle for one last layer of safety, and only then can we return the vehicle to your care.

Why Should I Have Frequent Service?

Every vehicle requires routine maintenance to continue running its best. Whether it's an oil change to protect the critical internal components of your engine from wear and heat, brake service to ensure confident stopping power, or just an overall inspection to get ahead of any potential trouble, allowing a professional to look at your vehicle a few times per year is a great way to extend its life and save yourself money on big repairs down the road.

When Do I Know I Need Service?

While every vehicle is different and your driving habits are equally varied, you'll typically bring your vehicle to a dealership at least once every six months for its oil change. However, any unusual noise or vibration is always a good chance to have your vehicle checked out, and if any dash lights come on that indicate an issue, you'll want a professional to have a look under the hood.

When Should I Get an Oil Change?

The best practice is to have your oil changed every 3,000-6,000 miles, or once every six months, whichever comes first. However, your owner's manual may indicate a more specific interval for your particular vehicle.

How Often Should I Check Fluid Levels?

Once every three months or once every 5,000 miles is a good rule of thumb to follow when it comes to checking fluid levels on your vehicle.

When Should I Change My Cabin Air Filter?

Changing your cabin air filter once a year is a great way to ensure you're always getting fresh air inside the cabin, without mildew or mold invading the system due to moisture.

When Should I Have My Brakes Checked?

As long as you're keeping up with regular oil changes, every other oil change is a good time to have your brakes checked out. Of course, if you notice strange behavior from your braking system or hear unusual noises when braking, bring your vehicle to us ASAP.

When Should I Have My Tires Rotated?

Much like your brakes, a good rule of thumb is to have your tires rotated at every other oil change. However, if your interval is longer than 4,500 miles, a tire rotation is recommended at each oil change.

Do I Need an Appointment for Nissan Service in Port Charlotte?

While an appointment is always a good idea to help guarantee we are prepared for your service needs, you can always drop in if you have an issue that requires immediate attention and we will do our best to carve out time to help.
