Get Your 30,000 Mile Service Done at Haddad Nissan
You purchased a new vehicle recently, maybe within the past year or so, and you are coming up on 30,000 miles on your odometer. This means it’s time to bring your vehicle in to ensure both safety and top performance. You may be considering going to an independent garage with hopes of saving some money, in which case you will be pleased to learn that there are numerous benefits to returning to Haddad Nissan in Pittsfield instead!
A common myth that gets spread around is that dealerships try to profit off of customers by offering unnecessary services when you reach the 30,000 mile mark. This is a common misconception, as these dealer recommended services are very beneficial in terms of vehicle performance and safety.
The 30,000 mile service includes everything from the 15,000 mile service, along with new transmission fluid, a fuel filter, and an inspection that is a bit more thorough than the last. For those who aren’t mechanically inclined, transmission fluid lubricates each part of the transmission to make sure that you can change gears smoothly. The fuel filter is exactly what it sounds like: it filters out unwanted material such as dust and dirt out of your gas, which would otherwise slowly ruin your Nissan’s engine.
When you purchase a vehicle at a dealer, it makes the most sense to service it at the dealer. You may believe you are being upsold with dealer recommended services, but you must also consider that many of your service needs may be covered under warranty. If you go elsewhere for service, you may end up paying for something that could’ve been done for free at the dealership. This idea people have that the dealer service department is trying to rip you off is equally applicable to a mechanic at a local garage. Both make profits from servicing vehicles, so why would only the dealer try and sell you additional services?
When the dealership offers you services that are not required for warranty or in the vehicle’s manual, it is not just a scheme to make money. Our technicians here at Haddad Nissan in The Berkshires are the absolute most qualified to be servicing your Nissan, and they each have vast knowledge of how to make your vehicle perform at its best and be as safe as possible. That being said, our technicians would not offer you a service if they felt it wasn’t of importance to you. You don’t want to overlook any necessary service, as that may shorten the lifespan of your vehicle. It is also worth noting that while you may pay a bit more for the dealer recommended services, these can carry over and make your 60,000 mile service a bit less expensive. So essentially, the price will balance out either way. If this isn’t something you want, you can certainly get only the required service from the manual for the lowest cost, just let one of our service technicians know!
We are devoted to keeping your Nissan in its best possible shape. Make your 30,000 mile service appointment today at Haddad Nissan in Pittsfield and you will be far from disappointed!
