Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Nissan Maxima Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2006 Nissan Maxima to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Maxima's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2006 Nissan Maxima. In general, car batteries only last three to 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Nissan Maxima battery. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2006 Nissan Maxima's engine run smoother. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2006 Maxima in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2006 Nissan Maxima.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan Maxima can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Nissan Maxima steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Nissan Maxima's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Nissan Maxima services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 your Nissan Maxima radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2006 Nissan Maxima maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • When should I have Nissan Maxima alignment checked? You know your Nissan Maxima better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.

  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Nissan Maxima? 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.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan Maxima in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
