2003 Nissan Maxima Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Nissan? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Nissan tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Maxima’s towing capacity. 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.
  • When should I have my Maxima's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Nissan Maxima transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Nissan's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
