What to Know About 2012 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. 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 Nissan Maxima!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. 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 2012 Nissan Maxima problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Nissan Maxima Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2012 Nissan Maxima to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check.

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.

Could your 2012 Nissan Maxima be ready for a new battery? 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. 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. 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2012 Nissan Maxima running newer, longer. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 Maxima, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2012 Nissan Maxima.
