This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Nissan Altima

Bring your 2010 Nissan Altima to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Altima’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2010 Nissan Altima? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Altima may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan Altima battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Altima) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Nissan Altima won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2010 Nissan Altima engine. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 2010 Altima, check out the information table at the beginning of this page.

Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2010 Nissan Altima.

2010 Nissan Altima Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2010 Nissan Altima. Get answers to common Nissan Altima maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Nissan Altima alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2010 Altima is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Nissan Altima need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Nissan Altima engines.
  • Can Nissan dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Nissan Altima to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
