The engine service light has come on in my 10-year-old SUV. Is it best to take the car to a Nissan service center, or will any service center be fine?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Kris, You can visit your local auto parts store, often they offer to read the code that is setting your engine light on. You can have more of a basis to go on before taking to a repair facility. Often when you visit a dealership it is $70+ to read the codes. AJ Pierce

Suzanne Grego, Technician at City of Philadelphia Fleet Management Kris Fisher, You don*t necessarily have to go to a Nissan dealership to have your vehicle serviced. Although Nissan will replace any needed parts with genuine Nissan parts, aftermarket is almost always just as good - especially for an older vehicle. Suzanne
