Wondering about Nissan car service prices? Or maybe you want to know how different a Nissan Micra car service costs from a Nissan Altima? Got a service coming up and want to start budgeting for it now? This guide is for you.
Of course, car servicing is an essential expense that comes with owning a car. Keeping your Nissan serviced helps it run more smoothly, keep you and your family safe on the roads, and ideally avoid major (and therefore expensive) breakdowns. Whether it's an annual check-up or a pre-holiday service before a long trip, investing in servicing your car is always worth it.
But that doesn’t mean you have to go with the first quote or mechanic - or even the dealership’s recommended service provider. Educating yourself on the common Nissan service and maintenance prices can help you make an informed decision and hopefully save some money.
Prices for a minor service range from $150-$190 while full-service prices usually start around $500 for a Nissan car. But that’s pretty general information and depends on a lot of different factors. So let’s dive into the specifics of what your car’s next service might be priced at.
How often do I need to service my Nissan?
If you drive your car mainly around town, in urban areas, or city traffic, Nissan recommends servicing your car at least once every 6 - 12 months, or every 6,000 miles on average.
As well as regular servicing, you’ll need a more thorough service every 25,000 and 60,000 miles, to get your air filters, brake fluid, spark plugs, coolant, and fuel filters changed. This will keep your car running at peak condition.
However, if you frequently drive in stop-start city traffic, on dusty or corrugated roads, tow a trailer or van, operate your vehicle in extreme temperatures, or live near the beach, then you should consider getting your car serviced more regularly.
During a standard car service, what normally happens?
A standard car service will involve checking that all the parts of your car are working correctly. The oil, brake and injector fluids are usually topped up, then moving parts, such as rubber belts and hoses are checked for signs of wear and tear. Mechanics will also inspect the brake pads and tires to make sure they’re safe and secure.
Although a standard service is a purely superficial check over your vehicle, an experienced mechanic will also be able to identify and fix any issues that might cause trouble in the future (additional parts and labor may cost more).
What’s included in Nissan’s service schedule?
The official Nissan service schedule generally alternates minor and major services. Your first service will focus on a tune-up, and the next one will include a more thorough check of all the different parts, plus replace a lot of items that tend to wear out more regularly.
What are some common issues that come up when servicing Nissan?
Like any car, there are going to be issues that are common to some makes and models. In particular, the 2013 Nissan Altima had many complaints relating to transmission issues, interior accessories, windshield and windows, and air conditioning/heating issues.
On the Airtasker platform, we’ve noticed a lot of Nissan car owners looking for help with:
Installing brake pads
Replacing globes in headlights
Fixing the fans for the air-conditioning and heating
The great news is, while these jobs are best left to someone with experience (like our Nissan car experts), they’re often quick to do and don’t cost a lot
What are some common Nissan car repair costs?
One easy way to save money on your Nissan car repairs is to source the parts yourself and then get them installed for you.
Many of the tasks on Airtasker are listed by people who have already bought the parts and are shopping around to get the best deal on labor. For example, alternator replacements are popular, with prices ranging from $200-$600, while replacing brake pads has an average cost of $100-$300.
Guide to Nissan car service costs by model
Generally, four-cylinder gasoline engines are the most affordable to run and service. However, each model also has its own recommended servicing schedule, which can have a major effect on your Nissan’s service costs over the lifetime of the vehicle. The Pathfinder Hybrid, for example, has a recommended service period of every 6 months, or 5,000 miles, whereas the Navara has a more economical 12 months or 10,000 miles service interval.

What are the main factors affecting the cost of my Nissan car service?
As you can see from our price guide above, the biggest variation in cost is based on the make and model of your vehicle. But the overall cost of a Nissan vehicle service also needs to take into account a few other factors, including:
Whether you’ve had any issues (like that funny rattling noise or a breakdown)
The complexity of the job
The year of manufacture
Whether it’s a diesel or gasoline model
Whether you or your mechanic will source the parts
How difficult it is to source the parts
Any extras (like a car battery replacement or an engine flush)
Where you live
Whether you book a mobile mechanic or you bring your car to a workshop
How urgently you need the job done
Whether you need them to work on a weekend or weekday
Where should I book in for an affordable Nissan car service?
Once you’ve done your homework and know what prices are reasonable to pay for Nissan servicing, it’s easy to book your service.
On Airtasker, you can post your advertisement for a full service, logbook service, oil and filter change, or find someone to help you with car repairs or parts replacement.

Logbook services are usually required to maintain your warranty and ensure you’re covered if anything goes wrong. Even if you’re out of the warranty period, it’s a good idea to keep getting your vehicle serviced at the suggested intervals to keep it in optimal condition. Plus, it helps show potential buyers that you’ve looked after your vehicle if you ever want to sell.
A minor service can take as little as an hour, with full services and multiple parts replacements taking up to three or four hours. Your mechanic will be able to give you an estimate when you book in.
In the United States, you can have your car serviced at any qualified mechanic - you don’t need to go to a Nissan dealership to maintain your warranty. To get a more cost-effective Nissan car service, it’s nearly always better to choose a reputable, independent mechanic.
