Your Guide to 2011 Nissan Maxima Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Nissan Maxima to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Maxima has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Maxima maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2011 Nissan Maxima maintenance schedule!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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 2011 Nissan Maxima problems later.

Overview of Essential Nissan Maxima Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2011 Nissan Maxima to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2011 Nissan Maxima? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Maxima may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan Maxima battery. 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Maxima) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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 2011 Nissan Maxima's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2011 Maxima. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2011 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. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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. 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.

Without routine Nissan Maxima maintenance, 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 it time to replace the radiator in your Nissan Maxima? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2011 Nissan Maxima maintenance.

  • 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 does my Nissan Maxima need 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? 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.
