Your Guide to 2005 Nissan Maxima Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Nissan Maxima, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Maxima could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Maxima, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2005 Nissan Maxima!

Nissan knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Maxima's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2005 Nissan Maxima problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Nissan Maxima Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2005 Nissan Maxima and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Maxima. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2005 Nissan Maxima? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan Maxima battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Nissan Maxima won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2005 Nissan Maxima's engine run smoother. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 2005 Maxima, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2005 Nissan Maxima? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan Maxima can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Nissan Maxima suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Nissan Maxima's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Nissan Maxima maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Nissan Maxima engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Nissan Maxima? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2005 Nissan Maxima maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Nissan Maxima? You know your Nissan Maxima better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Nissan Maxima need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Nissan Maxima? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Nissan dashboard lights on? 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 Maxima to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
