MAINTENANCE, SERVICE, REPLACEMENT ITEMS AND WARRANTY EXCLUSIONS
OWNER'S OBLIGATIONS REGARDING
The vehicle warranty does not cover costs incurred as a result of normal wear and tear or inspections, neither does it cover any loss or deterioration, of whatever nature, as a result of the vehicle being stored for a lengthy period. Therefore costs related to the items listed below are the responsibility of the owner.
LUBRICATION: Extremes of temperatures, adverse weather and severe road conditions will result in the need for more frequent servicing. During services, lubricant and fluid levels, doors, locks, rubber seals, throttle and parking brake linkages need to be checked.
ENGINE OIL AND FILTERS: To prolong engine life and performance, engine oil and filters must be changed as recommended.
ENGINE TUNING AND ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS: Must be checked and adjusted periodically for maximum economy, performance and driving safety.
DRIVE BELT ADJUSTMENTS: Must be checked and adjusted to correct tension to ensure efficient functioning of driven components.
BRAKE AND CLUTCH ADJUSTMENTS: Linings and pads are subject to wear and must be adjusted or replaced when necessary.
TYRE ROTATION: Severe driving habits, such as heavy braking, harsh acceleration, high speed cornering, heavy loads and high speeds in general contribute toward a shorter vehicle tyre life. To achieve uniform tyre wear and longer life it is recommended that tyres be rotated periodically.
WHEEL ALIGNMENT AND BALANCE: Adverse driving conditions and poor driving habits can cause wheels to go out of alignment and balance. Maintaining the correct wheel alignment and balance will provide better handling, improved ride comfort and longer tyre life.
FUEL SYSTEM CLEANING/CORRECT FUEL AS SPECIFIED: Contaminants can sometimes enter the fuel system from external sources. Should this occur, the fuel system must be drained and filters replaced to restore proper engine performance. It is the owner's obligation, in every instance to take extra care to use fuel as specified.
RATTLES AND SQUEAKS: Before delivery of a vehicle the authorised NISSAN dealer will, as a matter of course, ensure that the vehicle is free of any unusual noises. However, over time, poor road conditions may result in rattles or squeaks developing. It is therefore advisable that adjustments be checked regularly, and all bolts, nuts, screws and clamps should be checked periodically.
SPARK PLUGS: These items are subject to wear and/or carbon build-up. For maximum performance and economy they should be checked periodically and replaced at specified times.
FUEL AND AIR FILTERS: In order that these items can perform their important function of cleaning the fuel and air for the engine they should be properly maintained and replaced at the recommended intervals. In severe operating conditions replacement should be more frequent than recommended for normal operation.
WIPER BLADES: The life of windscreen wiper blades is dependent on the amount of use and climatic conditions. For safety reasons these items should be replaced when wear impairs their function to clear the windscreen effectively.
GLOBES AND FUSES: The replacement of electric light globes, fuses and lamp glasses on failure is not covered by a warranty.
ENGINE COOLANT: Please consult your authorised NISSAN dealer for the specified coolant additives and concentrations. These must be maintained as recommended to prevent corrosion and erosion.
VEHICLE BODY: Vehicles operating under abnormally severe conditions on beaches, dirt and loose gravel roads and in coastal environments with high humidity and salt mist laden air, require added protection. These circumstances are conducive to rapid paint and body deterioration. It is therefore the responsibility of the owner to take cognisance of the environment and conditions under which the vehicle may be expected to operate and to take suitable steps to prevent the deterioration of the paint and body work.
Regular cleaning and vehicle attention must be given top priority in these conditions. Rust proofing as well as the physical application thereof may only be applied with the express approval of NISSAN. Under NO circumstances may the body be drilled or body surfaces/ panels disturbed to apply the rust proofing. Body inspections form an integral part of the preventative maintenance service schedules and must be done on either odometer readings or months, whichever occurs first. The owner must, upon detection of corrosion, report this to an authorised NISSAN dealer without delay. Such report must be made regardless of maintenance inspection periods indicated. Should body corrosion be evident at any inspection, the area must be repaired and treated within 14 working days after the inspection. The warranty will exclude any preventative treatment expense due to external paint/body and/or undersealer damage.
We would like to point out that our warranty does not cover expenses incurred as a result of normal wear and tear or inspections. Neither does it cover any losses or expenses, of whatsoever nature, arising from breakdown of a NISSAN vehicle during the warranty period other than labour, repair or replacement of the warrantable part/s and/or components. The warranty period is not extended as a result of repairs during the warranty period.
WHAT YOU MUST DO
Properly use, maintain and care for your NISSAN vehicle as outlined in your Owner’s Manual and Maintenance Section in this booklet.
Take the NISSAN vehicle to an authorised NISSAN dealer’s place of business during regular business hours at your expense in order to obtain warranty service.
Check for trim, paint or other appearance defects at the time the new NISSAN vehicle is delivered and report the same to your selling authorised NISSAN dealer without delay.
Keep maintenance service records in order to show the proper maintenance has been performed.
WHAT WE WILL DO
Warranty repairs will be made at no charge for parts and/or labour (except for batteries, in which case you must pay certain charges as noted in the caption “Things you should know about New Vehicle Warranty”). Any required parts replacement will be rendered with new or authorised remanufactured parts by an authorised NISSAN dealer. A reasonable time to complete the repairs must be allowed after the NISSAN vehicle is delivered to the authorised NISSAN dealer.
THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT NEW VEHICLE WARRANTY ADJUSTMENT
Adjustments not usually associated with the replacement of parts are covered under the warranty for the first 12 months regardless of mileage driven.
It is recommended that scheduled maintenance and warranty services be performed by your selling authorised NISSAN dealer since that dealer has a direct interest in your continued satisfaction.
PRE-DELIVERY INSPECTION SERVICE
To help you secure maximum satisfaction from your NISSAN new vehicle, it has been inspected and conditioned according to Nissan’s new car pre-delivery inspection procedure.
NISSAN has the right at any time to make changes to the design or specifications of any NISSAN vehicle without notice and without any obligation to make such changes on vehicles that have been sold in the past.
This warranty applies to NISSAN vehicles registered and normally operated in the country where such NISSAN vehicle is originally sold. This warranty is provided to the original and subsequent owners of the NISSAN vehicle during the warranty period.
SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE SERVICE
Proper maintenance and care of the NISSAN vehicle is indispensable for safe driving and lower overall running costs. The scheduled maintenance services are minimum requirements that should be performed at your initiative.
Additional maintenance service may be required since weather and atmospheric conditions, varying roads, vehicle usage and individual driving habits greatly contribute to the need for such service.
Any damage or failures resulting from lack of required maintenance or improper maintenance are not covered by warranty.
AIR CONDITIONER REFRIGERANT
Air-conditioner installed in your NISSAN vehicle as original equipment is covered during the New Vehicle Warranty, 72 months or 150 000 km. However, refrigerant recharge not associated with the repair or replacement of a warranted part is not covered after the first 12 months, regardless of the mileage.
TRANSIENT WARRANTY SERVICE
If you are touring in another country and a problem occurs with your NISSAN vehicle, please contact an authorised NISSAN dealer in that country. Warranty service is provided under the provisions stipulated in this booklet.
Please note, however, that any problems relating to lack of compliance with local regulations and/or the environmental requirements of the country in which you are touring are not covered by the warranty.

RELOCATION TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY
Your NISSAN vehicle is manufactured to meet the regulations and environmental requirements of the country where such NISSAN vehicle is originally sold. In case you relocate it to other country, your NISSAN vehicle may not comply with the regulations and environmental requirements of that country. It may be very difficult to make modifications to comply with the regulations and environmental requirements of the country.
In addition, even if you take your NISSAN vehicle to an authorised NISSAN dealer in another country for repair, the spare parts necessary for repairing the NISSAN vehicle may not be available at that authorised NISSAN dealer because such authorised NISSAN dealer may have different models and specifications. Then, it may be difficult to perform repair service in that country. Please note that a NISSAN vehicle relocated to another country is not covered by the warranty.
Your complete satisfaction with your vehicle is the primary concern of your authorised NISSAN dealer and distributor. If a problem arises that you feel has not been handled satisfactorily, the following steps are suggested:
Discuss the problem with your authorised NISSAN Dealer Management and Dealer Principal first.
If you feel something more should be done, and the authorised NISSAN dealer is unable to resolve the matter satisfactorily then…
