  • What happens when you "ride" your Nissan's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Nissan? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Maxima is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Maxima transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1989 Maxima’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform.
