Your Guide to 2013 Nissan Maxima Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Nissan Maxima and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Maxima could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. 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 2013 Nissan Maxima!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Nissan, your vehicle manufacturer. 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, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2013 Nissan Maxima problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Nissan Maxima Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2013 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.

Could your 2013 Nissan Maxima be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan Maxima battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Maxima stranded. 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 2013 Nissan Maxima's engine run smoother. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 Maxima in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2013 Nissan Maxima.

Routine upkeep for your Nissan Maxima suspension and steering 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 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Nissan Maxima's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan Maxima maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Nissan Maxima’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Nissan Maxima radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2013 Nissan Maxima maintenance.

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

  • 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.

  •  Why are my Nissan dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason!
