Fact: The Nissan NV200 does not have an in-cabin air filter.
When we took our 2013 Nissan NV200 for its second service at the 1500-mile mark, we learned some thing new, some thing most of us wouldn't think twice about since it was in our owners manual. According to the manual, we requested an oil change, tire rotation , and replacement of the in-cabin microfilter along with a service inspection. After 30 minutes, the service adviser informed us they couldn't replace the in-cabin air microfilter because the Nissan NV200 isn't equipped with one. This little discovery saved us from spending roughly $95 for an in-cabin air filter.
Our Nissan service advisor also informed us that our van had a recall notice to inspect and reposition the wiring harness that connects the battery fuse terminal. If not fixed, the harness could wear through its protective covering and cause the battery terminal fuse to blow and the fuel pump and engine to stop, leading to a risk of crashing. Our service dealer inspected and repositioned the wiring harness, adding a protective engine harness free of charge.
After all that, our total was $95 for parts and labor.
Service side note: Why is this service more costly than the first? When we took our Nissan NV200 in for its first service at 7500 miles, the dealer was running a special for $59.99 that included the same three items we had performed. That same service was $95 without the dealer special.
