    where do you take your juke for service?

    Looking up for place/Nissan dealership for 48,000 kms for a 2016 Juke nismo AWD and it's going to cost me 1835.80 plus tax!(routine service plus power steering fluid,All drive service and CVT transmission service). I would do it by myself or gone to small shop if it's out of warranty. Any info ?

    Nissan won't void warranty just for taking it to an independent shop for service. They could void your warranty if the wrong type of fluid was used in the CVT and it caused issues later on where a warranty replacement was in question. If all you are getting done is fluid servicing or exchanging, you can take it to an independent shop.

    Also, ask for a written estimate from the dealership so you can see each line item and what it is. It seems like the dealership is adding on a few services that may or may not be absolutely necessary. For one, power steering fluid just needs to be monitored for level and color/clarity. Top it off if it looks low. You can do that yourself. I've never change power steering fluid on any of the cars I've owned and never had a problem.

    Great to hear! Now it’s time to find some NP2 CVT fluid in Canada! Amazon.com won’t ship those goodies up here

    Careful! Unless your Nismo is an RS model you gotta use NS-3being that it's a 2015+ 'Gen2'. *Supposedly* both of Nissans special tranny sauce is way different. I wouldn't take any chances.

    I am experimenting with AMSOIL CVT fluid in instead of NS3 and, so far do good but that was still probably a dumb idea on my part Haha. Time will tell.

    If you are looking to 'refresh' your Juke, I would suggest doing only the following (and personally I would have a Nissan Dealer do it):

    CVT Fluid Service (Some folks might argue about having just a 'fluid change' done vs a 'full service'. Check the costs and ask the service dept what the differences are, and if they will even do just a fluid change, then make a choice.) This should be no more than $300 USD.

    Full synthetic oil change. Usually $45-$80 USD.

    Induction Cleaning service (Not a 'throttle body cleaning'. When I had it done they used a product called Terraclean along with special machinery to complete the service. It removes carbon building on engine internals and cleans all the way through the intake and exhaust.) This was like $230 USD I think.

    Those are the major things. If you really want to go crazy, you can have the brake fluid drained and filled, but usually that is only done if your brakes/brake pedal aren't noticeably performing as well as they should. As mentioned, power steering and other fluids can simply be topped off easily on your own.

    Without seeing the line items and without any existing problems, I think $1800 for preventative service is going overboard. The 3 services above with make a noticeable difference when you drive out of there.

    I concur with Bargeld. CVT fluid exchange, full synthetic oil change, and induction cleaning. Last time I had these done the dealership gave me a break for all 3. You could do all of them yourself, but then it's a question of how much is your time worth to you and how much do you want to invest in it. Also having a dealership do it, they assume the risk of doing the service since they supposedly have the training.

    I have a great Nissan Dealership here in NE PA called Kelly Nissan. I know saying an 'honest dealership' usually is a conundrum but these guys/gals have been super straight forward and honest. My CVT fluid change was somewhere around $125.00 last year. I did it with the oil change and the inspection. With the oil change, CVT fluid change, inspection, tire rotation and emissions I spent around $300.00 total. The total you are quoting seems WAY out of line. for general maintenance and a few 'extras'.

    I will have them do the brake fluid this year (it was recommended by them last season to do it this year due to no inline filter and not knowing specifically the history of the Juke) which will run me about $100.00. I only put about 6,000 miles a year on the Juke so my maintenance costs are pretty low.

    How much of a difference is there with the full synthetic motor oil? especially with my low driving miles a year do you think this would be worth the cost?

    Just called around Nissan dealerships in Edmonton Alberta (3 of them). All of them quoted me 620 CDN just for CVT fluid service. Maybe I should just take a vacation and drive down to State side for the major 3 services

    My goodness. Well if you're willing to dabble with some of this stuff yourself CVT fluid is extremely easy to change. Cost of fluid, some grubby clothes, a socket/wrench, and a drip pan with volumetric indicators on it and you're all set in 30 minutes. Most of that is waiting for fluid to drain. I did mine at 20k miles and even that low it made quite a bit of difference in smoothness and performance. I can point you towards my little write-up on doing mine if interested!
