What to Know About 2009 Nissan Maxima Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Nissan Maxima to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Maxima could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Maxima maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2009 Nissan Maxima!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Maxima running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2009 Nissan Maxima problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Nissan Maxima Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2009 Nissan Maxima to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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 2009 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. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2009 Nissan Maxima running newer, longer. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 2009 Maxima, check out the information table at the beginning 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2009 Nissan Maxima? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Nissan Maxima steering and suspension system 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! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Nissan Maxima steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. 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 (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’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2009 Nissan Maxima maintenance.

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

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Nissan Maxima? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Nissan Maxima to high mileage oil? 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
