While it would be nice if our vehicles never needed service, doing routine preventative maintenance can help you avoid larger, more expensive repairs down the road. Here is a rundown of some basic routine maintenance you should always have done on your car. You can catch up on your maintenance by scheduling a service appointment at Nissan of Lake Charles.

Keep in mind that this is a general recommendation. To get a more specific schedule for your type of vehicle, look in your owner’s manual.
