How often should I service my 2010 Nissan Maxima?
When it comes to your Nissan Maxima, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Maxima. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 2010 Nissan Maxima!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Maxima's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2010 Nissan Maxima problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2010 Nissan Maxima for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. 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.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2010 Nissan Maxima? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Maxima) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Nissan Maxima could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2010 Nissan Maxima engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2010 Maxima. 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2010 Nissan Maxima.
Maintaining your Nissan Maxima steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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, 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. Components within your Nissan Maxima's steering system require regular maintenance.
