2012 Nissan Maxima Drivetrain Service

All About 2012 Nissan Maxima Drivetrain Service

Your Maxima’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Nissan, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Maxima and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2012 Nissan Maxima to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Nissan's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Nissan Maxima Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2012 Nissan Maxima drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Nissan Maxima may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Nissan Maxima drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2012 Nissan Maxima? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
