Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2008 Nissan Maxima!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Nissan, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Maxima perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2008 Nissan Maxima problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Nissan Maxima

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2008 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Maxima’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2008 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Maxima may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan Maxima 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. 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 be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2008 Nissan Maxima running newer, longer. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2008 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2008 Nissan Maxima.

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. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Nissan Maxima steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Nissan Maxima's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Nissan Maxima services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2008 Nissan Maxima. Get answers to common Nissan Maxima maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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. 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 should I use high mileage oil in my Nissan Maxima? 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 Maxima engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Nissan Maxima, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
