If there’s one thing that New Haven, CT drivers enjoy about summer, it’s the opportunity to get out into the open air, enjoy great scenery, and have a good time. Whether you’re cruising in a Nissan Rogue or taking a road trip in a Nissan Pathfinder, the summer heat can have an adverse effect on your tires…and can cause potential mishaps. At Executive Nissan, we want you to enjoy a stress-free summer, which starts with keeping your tires properly inflated.

Our Nissan service center technicians advise that keeping your tires properly inflated can not only impact your fuel economy but also impact your overall drive. When your tires are under-inflated and have a greater surface area in contact with the road, your vehicle will feel slow and sluggish, and you use more fuel as you drive. When you over-inflate your tires and they have too much pressure, the sidewalls become rigid and hard, reducing traction and performance and possibly resulting in mishaps. Either way, proper tire maintenance in your Nissan vehicle is important.

However, the service staff at our Nissan dealership serving New Haven, CT have some great tips for proper tire maintenance starting with regular pressure checks. The simplest is to check all of the tires on your -vehicle (including your spare) with a gauge every morning before you drive. With higher temperatures during the summer, our Nissan service center suggests getting your tires checked at our dealership, and we also stock tires in our parts department if you need them replaced. Let our us help you care for your Nissan car or SUV!

Take the next step in ensuring great summer driving and make an appointment with our Nissan service center. Our technicians will be more than happy to help you maintain your Nissan vehicle, and we’re more than happy to serve you. Hope to see you soon!
